0.5L bottle. Soiled clothes first and then little coffe grounds aroma. Cool used motor oil color with brown hat. Very cool look. Taste is also fat oili. Correct porter feeling and taste. Remind little summer clove and herbs. Little vanilla and little coffee caramel. Everything is on balance. Finish is bit alcohol, but not disturb very much. Best baltic porter so far.

Cola black beer with a big mocha head. Aroma of ripe sweet dark fruits. Flavors of dark ripe fruits and red berries. Lovely sweetness typical to a baltic porter. Liquorice and mämmi. Medium body. I love sweet baltic porters and this is a good one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nearly black color with a big white head. Aroma is malty with dark bread and rye pudding, also some metallic notes. Taste is roasty but also sweet. Maltiness is moderate, the mouthfeel very soft and medium to full bodied. Flavours include rye bread, some chocolate and a hint of licorice. Alcohol does not feature. Well, this was decent but not up to the top Finnish porters like Sinebrychoff Porter or Malmgårds porters.

Fairly light colored for a porter. Bubbles sticking to the side of the glass, but they may have more to do with how the glassware is washed than the beer. They diminished after a couple minutes. Rocky, tan head. Fairly, metallic malt aroma. A little spicy. The aroma gets me thinking about all the winter releases I can't wait to drink. A porter with neither chocolate, nor coffee. To be honest, I miss those flavors a little.
