Cask @ St. Urho’s Pub, Helsinki

Pours copper orange with a bubbly head. Aroma of hazelnuts, hints of coffee and roastiness. Taste is watery, sweetish and malty with notes of nuts, hints of coffee and roastiness. Finish is smooth and sweet with notes of fruits, nuts and cold coffee. A bit unbalanced, not very porter-like.

Cask at St Urho, Helsinki. Colour is copper with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Nuts, coffee and roasted malts. Horrible.

mjs (4794) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2013
(Cask at St. Urho’s Pub Portteripäivät ’13) The beer poured brown. Its head was small and white. Aroma had nuts, chocolate, roasted malts and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, nuts, malts, more sweetness and low bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. Unpleasant: too sweet and the nut flavour was too strong.

McWorta (661) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 10, 2013
Vanilla, chocolate, toffee, coffee and slightly earthy, light notes of earth & leather hints of nuts on top of the gums. Orange-amber small white light head. Nice balance, creme brule, coffee and caramel pudding. Light bitter and medium sweet, full body, slick and light lively. Drink dessert! Congenial after a meal for 1 or 2 to drink. Enjoyable beer!

thirstyrabbit (1157) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle. Copper body with a small head. Aroma has powdery cocoa and dried peas. Taste has sweet caramel with a teaspoonful of cocoa powder. This sounds like a rejected idea for a soft drink. I don’t get this beer at all. Maybe it’s because the label promised a porter (in CAPS!) and it’s clearly not a porter.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2013
Cask @ the pub, Leicester. This beer is lovely. A hazelnut coffee porter that tastes like a cold hazelnut latte, I loved it a lot. I'd like it better perhaps with a bit more body- a stout would be amazing but it is delicious as it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

toffeeslot (118) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 23, 2012
Pours a nice colour, with some good nut and coffee aroma. Decent head off white. Taste is of roasted malts, coffee, vanilla and hazlenut. A bit like a ferro rocher chocolate :) Quite light body - would have preferred it a bit thicker. Good though.

Marduk (2981) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 22, 2012
500ml bottle. Deep redbrown color. Small head. Hazelnuts, malty, dusty, roast in aroma. Nutty, bit buttery, malty, slightly dry roast in flavor. Very drinkable beer!

500ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Super-nice hazelnut aroma. Some cocoa powder too. Sweet, sticky, cocao powder body. Taste also cocao powdery. Nice and drinkable, but the powdery nature of this is perhaps a bit too much.

Bottle from Mr Lawrence Wine Merchants, Brockley. Reddish-brown pour with a white head. Chocolate, nuts and light coffee aroma. Milk chocolate, light nuts and some coffee flavours. Not bad at all.
