The beer pours a thick opaque black, with a slightly brown head and little visible carbonation. The best thing about this porter is the roasted malt taste that hits your tongue and continues throughout the sip, venturing into a coffee dominated, slightly alcoholic aftertaste. This is an enjoyable and easy porter to sip, and with just enough complexion to have you thinking throughout every sip.

TET (2335) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2016
A colablack beer, a head is small and yellowish beige. Aroma has chocolate, roastiness of coffee and sweetness of lactose. Taste has roastiness, fruitness of hops, simple. Only medium bodied, more strenght body would be needed. Easy to enjoy and nice beer but the final touch is missing.

Hikeg (190) - - JAN 23, 2016
Pours dark brown with medium light-brown head. Heavy roasted, nutty, dark chocolate, a little of red berries, some orange hops. Medium sweetness, light to medium bitter, short finish. A milky and easy feel to it. Body is just medium, palate is almost watery, carbonation is soft. A pleasant silky and smooth one, perhaps on the thin side.

RexTalionis (3306) - FINLAND - JAN 23, 2016
Dark brown in color with a tan head. Roasted malts, milk chocolate sweetness and cocoa powder in aroma. Sweetness, chocolate but also some bitters in taste. Sadly the sweetness is bit too much present. As a dessert in small quantities this would be okay. Lacking some character though.

Hermod (5149) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2016
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 (14899) - 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.
