Vahtimestari on väriltään musta, tuoksultaan paahteisen suklainen ja maultaan vaniljaisen lempeä.

Dark brown, some foam. Smells like chocolate. Rye bread taste, quite sweet, caramel, vanilla. Good aroma, but don’t like the taste.

Lovely vanilla-ey porter aroma, good stuff. Pretty tasty porter, but there’s some odd hint of something like a rotten vegetable, or maybe even enteric. Smoothish palate, carbonation pleasant. Kinda mellow feel. UK style porter, drinkability high. Nice porter, finish has a lovely mellow cakey roast. Improves with every sip.

Almost opaque black color, steady beige head. Vanilla dominates the aroma with hints of cocoa. Medium-bodied. Quite sweet, lots of vanillin sugar gives a bit artifical feeling. Too sweet and too little roasted maltyness for my liking. Hopefully next batch is better.

Draught at the Cella, Helsinki, Finland. Dark brown colour with a small tan head. Brown sugar, vanilla and strong maltiness in the aroma. The flavour is sweet malty with brown sugar, mild bitteness, mild alcohol and some mild spiciness. A bit thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap @ Black Door, Helsinki. Pours dark brown, almost black with a decent, beige-colored head. Aroma is quite a bit of portery, dark fruitiness, a good dollop of vanilla, somewhat roasted. Taste beings dark fruitiness and a lot of vanilla, the roast is there too, but again, not as strong as the two formerly mentioned flavors. Not that sweet, even though the vanilla sweetens it up somewhat. A surprising amount of sweet boiled red beet root in the finish and aftertaste. Rather christmassy as it is a large part of the traditional Finnish christmas dish, rosolli. A bit light for the full flavor, well carbonated that makes up for it. Enjoyable.

Draught @ Black Door, Helsinki

Pours dark brown with a smooth white head. Aroma of vanilla, cocoa, roasted malts and hints of wood. Taste is smooth, sweetish and slightly roasty with loads of vanilla and cocoa. Finish is smooth, sweetish and roasty with notes of vanilla and milk chocolate. Okay sweet stout/porter.
