oh6gdx (25392) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 28, 2008
Draught. Very dark ruby brown colour, very close to black. Aroma is yeast, hops, mild roasted malts as well as some chocolate. Flavour is quite sweet and mildly acidic fruityness along with roasted malts. As it warms up also some coffeeish and chocolateish notes become present in the flavour too. Nice, but still quite watery.

Bottle 50 cl. Pours a very dark brown - close to black - with an orange hue and a small off-white head. A pruney aroma, no real roastiness. Medium body, sweet dark fruits and a little licorice. A yeasty and not entirely pleasant edge. 280511

omhper (23513) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 2, 2009
Draught at Bishops Arms, eskilstuna. Transparently near black, minimal head. Unpleasantfruity metallic nose. Swetish and blnd. Syrup and metal are way more prominent than roasty malt. This and sloppy as a macro lager with artificial colouring. Finishes with aluminium foil and soy sauce saltiness.

TBone (16163) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2008
Draught@Kaisla, Helsinki
Dark brown, almost opaque color with small expresso head. Sweetish, chocolaty aroma with some hops. Crisp, tickling carbonation. Starts a bit toasted malty, but then suprisingly flavor leans more towards to bitter and hoppy side. Some menthol in the aftertaste. Dark malts are there, slightly watery finish anyhow. Interesting, although not a really top class porter.

Dryish, good porter, but not a standpoint. A bit of hopsack in the aroma.
