355ml bottle from Finland’s lovely monopoly. Dark brown with nonexistent head. Nose is bit closed and it has carbonation in it. Palate is smooth and balanced with some crisp rye and malt notes which are presented well in this low abv. brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Average light-brown frothy head. Fair lacing. Mostly diminishing. Flat black thick body. Aroma: milk chocolate, moderate malt, alcohol. Initial flavor: light sweet, smoked and salty hints. Final flavor: very light astringent (minor flaw from a months expiration), smoked and very light sweet. Palate: medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. Malty background. Stands out from other Porters. Less coffee and chocolate than the average, but theyre present. 120s

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black body with a pale beige head.
Malty roasted caramel aroma with notes of liquorice.
Rather dry and medium bitter. Light malt flavour base with some roasted notes. Lightly acidic. Bitter finish.
Medium body with soft carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.
In my experience this is a rather mild porter, and I expected something with a fuller taste. Besides, dry and sour never works for me. I prefer sweeter and richer modern porters to this.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated from old notes. Aroma is very much like a wine. Rather sweet with a spritzy wine/brandy undertone. Settles into a well balanced, full-bodied drink with a slight sourness, with the malts becoming more evident as you progress. Quite good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
An extremely interesting, complex aroma. At first, fruity esters that made me think of pineapples in syrup. On a further level, I got a S’mores Pop Tart aroma. Obviously, there’s a decent level of caramel on the aroma as well. Approaching a dark brown color with a very tan head and a seemingly high level of carbonation. Light to medium bodied with a very dry, somewhat slightly bitter finish. The finish lingers longer than most and it’s very pleasant.

Gently roasted. Farmy porter, with all the usual porter elements. Sophisticated. Great with Christmas meal. Medium bodied. If I’d have a beer like this every time I asked for dark beer, I’d be a happy fellow.
