330 ml bottle (sold as Vahvaportteri). Black, with a thin brown head. Sweetish aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and liquorice, some sour notes. The flavour is roasted malty, with coffee and chocolate, and a dry, lingering, smoky/ashy finish. Tasty.

Small dark brown head. Roasty earthy chocolatey aroma with wild berry notes. Sweet roasty mineraly earthy taste with sugary notes. Full-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish herbal roasty chocolatey aftertaste with mineraly burnt notes. Very nice, harmonic, drinkable, and balanced. Quite powerful. (0.33l bottle. Gift from FatPhil.)

Kauge (593) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle as a gift from Helsinki. BB 10-2015. Dark brown liquid, head tan - brief, lacing minimal. The aroma’s got loads of sourish roasted malts and chocolate, hint of hops. Tastes very damn chocolaty sweet, quite full, with an ashy dry roasty finish, some hops also detectable. Body medium, carbonation modest. Pretty nice.

thomasjoberg (48) - FINLAND - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle at cosmic café in Turku. Expiration date 02/16. Light peat/earth/smokiness on the nose. Espresso coffee color like, no head, very low carbonation to none (a fault here). Possibly not enough bottle conditioning time or beer opened too soon... Some sweetness on the palate. Bit of coffee, plum, tarry, peat smokiness and yeasty but pleasant flavors. Drinkable, smooth and quite sweet, almost syrupy, Imperial stout like. Good beer but lacked carbonation head and more coffee roasted would be great!

Moebbels (432) - FINLAND - FEB 21, 2015
A pitch black body with no head to spare. Nose has notes of velvery chokolate, coffee and caramel. Taste is sweet with rich chokolatey and rum notes and a dry finish. Low carbonation and rich, syrupy palate. A nice, well balanced porter.

1/2 pint on tap @ Brewdog Helsinki as Pyynikki Vahvaportteri. Pours very dark brown with a low off-white head. Aroma is two-stroke engine fuel with malty notes. Flavor is soft and sweet roasted malts with some alcohol, chocolate and hops. Decent.

Unde (532) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Dark brown colour with smallish beige coloured head on top. Aroma has salty licorice, roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate and some herb-like hops. Taste is quite rich. There is chocolate, coffee, dry roasted malts and ending with licorice and herb flavoured hops. Full bold body and medium-to-low carbonation. Aroma wasn’t that intriguing but the taste saved a lot in this one. Excellent.

330ml bottle. Opaque coal black body, fair tan-coloured head. Rich roasted malts on the nose, scent of dark chocolate. Mid-sweet flavours of cocoa, chocolate, wood and dried fruits added by mild lactose hints. Roasted ending, long-lived. Fine bodied. Powerful and nice (shared with djoeye and Skinnyviking, Tromsø 16.01.2015).
