This is very good! It’s like the standard porter but with a more woody taste. The aroma is sweeter and the rest is similar. Nice long finish.

Marduk (2725) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 10, 2013
330m bottle (shared twice by FatPhil, massive thanks). Black color. Massive brown head, stays for eternity. Sweet, alcohol, mellow metallic, roast and hops in aroma. Nice roast, grainy, hazelnuts, malty flavor. Smooth and very easy to drink. Fantastic brew.

NilsHenrikBo (25) - Västerås, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2013
33cl bottle. Dark brown color, creamy dark head. Aroma has ripe fruit, coffee and roasty malt. Taste very sweet and malty, hints of roasted wood. Not that much different from original Koff Porter.

liinis (1565) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 30, 2013
Very rich in flavour, thick mouthfeel. almost black colour and a dark brown head. Spruce is kind of an interesting spice.. and the syrup brings a nice sweetness balancing the bitterness. Excellent beer.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Bottled 330ml. Dark opaque brown color, good creamy brown head, lace. Toasted coffeish aroma with earthy barrel-like notes, which I quite strong. Some sweet dark syrup too. Medium-bodied. Koff Porter -like sweetish, roasted flavor. Soft and sweetish with burned, dark coffee notes in the aftertaste. Some hoppyness. Very nice.

teddybeer (2224) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 16, 2013
[Thanks to oh6gdx]. Bottle. Black colour with a creamy tan head, good lasting and nice lacework. Aroma is roasted malts, ripe fruit, some ashes and black coffee. Flavor has notes of coffee beans, roasted and toasted malts, black chocolate notes, light sweet and mild bitterness. The final is mainly coffee and black chocolate, with a dense and smooth sensation.

Lambister (208) - FINLAND - NOV 16, 2013
33 cl bottle. Pours a dark coffee color with a thick, light brown, lacy head. Aroma of roasted malts, some rye bread, maple syrup and earthiness. Flavor is very smooth with roasted malts, syrup, grains, toasted bread, and coffee. Full bodied, thick mouth feel and smooth carbonation. Sweeter version of the original also great Koff Porter. Balance is excellent as it accompanies sweetness with stronger aromas very nicely. Excellent.

Rune (8047) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2013
Many thanks to Finn for a 330ml bottle of this one, shared with Finn H. Pours a huge, bubbly tan-coloured head. Jet black body. Solid amount of lacework. A bit restrained smell of earthy malts and dark fruits, lightly roasted. Nice flavours of sweet malts and hops, including chocolate, syrup, and a touch of coffee. Smooth roasted, sweet malty ending. Masked alcohol. Medium bodied. A nice one, but does not quite reach the high standard of the Koff Porter (Tromsø, 30.10.2013).

Hermod (3167) - Vantaa, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2013
33cl bottle from Alko. Black color, brown head, looks just the same as Koff Porter. Aroma has syrup, roasted malt, licorice. Flavor has roasted malt, cocoa, spruce and chocolate. Dry, cocoa finish. Little sticky, sweet at times. Full bodied. Nice, but not as smooth as Porter.

Kaatuu lasiin sysimustana vaahdon ollessa melko tiivis, mokanvärinen, 2,5 sormen paksuinen ja vahvaa pitsiä jättävä. Haju eroaa jonkin verran "normiversiosta"; paahdetta ja ruisleipää on edelleen reilusti,kahviakin löytyy, mutta nyt on selkeä makeampi elementti ja havuisuuttakin löytyy hieman. Vakuuttava haju. Maussa portterin elementit ovat vahvana, paahdetta ja ruisleipää on reilusti, mutta lopussa iskee makeus, joka ei omasta mielestä oikein muun makumaailman kanssa sovi joukkoon. Tuoretta havumetsääkin löytyy ja hennosti kahvia, mutta makeus vaivaa hieman. Suutuntuma on täyteläinen ja öljyinen, todella maiskuteltavaa tavaraa. Häviää normiportterille, mutta hyvä, että isotkin panimot heräävät erikoisempiinkin tuotteisiin. Hinta-laatusuhteeltaan alkon tämän hetken kärkipäätä.
