3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown, almost black beer with a creamy tan head. Rather intense aroma dark, slightly burned sugars, sour bread, a hint of dried fruits and a herbal touch of hops. Medium sweet, malty flavor with slightly sugary start. Roasted malts and burned sugars arise in the finish crating a nice mixture of bready and dark chocolatey flavors. The hops intensify towards the finish and it gets slightly woody in the end. This woody note probably comes from the spruce extract being used. This Lingering aftertaste has a touch of alcohol. Medium body, oily texture. It almost is a bit thin for the strength, probably because of the maple syrup. Really enjoyable version of this classic Finnish porter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Vertically compared to the original Koff Porter. Colour is identical to the original, totally black with a brown tanned head, which leaves lacing on the glass. The aroma on the original is dark bread, dark chocolate, roasted malts and coffee. It’s less intense on the Two Tree version, with more of sweet sugary, roasted malty aroma and only hints of chocolate or coffee. The taste on the original is loafy malty, roasted and has coffee and dark chocolate. Two Trees is mostly just burned malts with sugary sweetness. There’s also some metallic sidenotes and some manure kind of a flavor. The palate is rougher and thicker on the original, whereas Two Trees is a lot smoother. The finish on Two Trees is more bitter and intense than on the original. I’m not really picking up the spruce sprouts, although I’m really not sure how they taste or smell. The sweetness of the maple suryp is kinda noticable. In my comparison, the original wins slightly, although both have good sides.
