Jet black with a lasting light brown head. Burned and roast aromas, some wood, brandy and a hint of cherry. Sweet and fruity flavour that finishes dry and wooden. Somewhat thin and watery for the big flavour.

650ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki) - shared with mjs - thanks!
Super smooth roasty aroma. Even better taste. Super drinkability, very mellow. Goddam this is yum. Nice cocoa twist to the roast. Hops fairly subtle. Looked great too, obviously - dark and crowned with a large tight beige head. This beer is one of the pieces of evidence I’d use to support the claim that American brewers are brewing the best porters in the world currently. Fullers London Porter’s almost alone holding the flag.

pitch dark, large smooth brown head. Aroma is roasted sruff, chocolate, dark caramel. Flavor is coffee roasted stuff, hops, very well balanced, but also a rad boring.

Bottle, from Wohlenbergs Vinhandel, Sønderborg. Near pitch-black, with a big foamy beige head. Aroma is malty sweet with a clear roasted character as well as a little chocolate. Nice, full, oily mouthfeel. Flavour is dry, roasted and quite sweet. There is a clear smoky finish to it that is not too powerful - just well-adjusted. Nice stout, indeed.
