12 fl Oz bottle from Alko. Pours near black with a thick brown head. Looking great. Licorice candy, sweetness, milky smoothness. Roasted malt, more licorice, hops in flavor. The sweet licorice really makes this beer come alive. Long slightly dry and roasty finish. Surprisingly thin for 7%.

Mukava shakin seuralainen. Jumissa vähän, mutta hyvä tunkkainen tuntuma. Aivan käyttökelpoinen porter.

TBone (16194) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 7, 2016
Bottle at Konttori, Tampere. Dark brown color, small beige head. Toasted, a bit chocolaty aroma. Medium-bodied. Flavor is also toasted malty and chocolaty but it has some ashy notes too. Decent strong porter.

ChrisO Tasting. Almost opaque dark brown beer, small cream colour head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, low carbonation. Tangy dry dark malts, mildly sour chocolate streak. Touch of coffee and dark fruits. Light dry finish. Coffee linger. So so from O’so.

Tap@ccc. Black darl brown, little head. Malty, slight sweet licorice, herbals, medicinal, bit herb liquory nose. Med full bodied, smooth, ok bittered. Licorice, malty syrup. Would expect more flavour for the abv though. Bit sweet oily syrupy this. Nothing too offending though..

esox (1225) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2015
Bottled. A clear, dark ruby-brown porter with creamy tan head. Sweet bready and some rich caramel malt aromas, sweet chocolate sauce, ripe plums and surprisigly fresh fruitiness and perfumes hard to describe. Taste starts with pretty straightforward pale malt flavor, light caramel but vanilla fudge flavors rapidly take over. Caramel, raisin and wood flavors in the finish with dry/woody bitterness and dark chocolate. Nice balance, but a bit sweet when warm. Medium to full body, carbs are perfectly fit and counterbalance the sweetness. Very nice.

Black body, light brown head. Aroma has some very robust maltiness. Berries and acid. Cola soy sauce and alcohol. Thinnish.

Scopey (12705) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2015
Bottle at Chriso’s Xmas Tasting 2015. It pours cloudy dark brown with a small beige head. The nose is sweet roast, toffee, fruit cake, toast and chocolate. The taste is bitter, earthy roast, toast, charred stuff, leather, peppery spice, oiliness and some mild astringency with a dry, toasted finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. I found this a touch harsh and astringent. So-so.

Very dark black. Dominant initial flavor that I can’t totally place, almost like a coffee taffy. Acidic after taste. Creamy in a milky way. I really like this. Thanks Jackl.
