Toomio (193) - Joensuu, FINLAND - FEB 3, 2014
oikein mainio suomalainen. Pehmeä väri, hyvä suutuntuma ja erittäin miellyttävä tuoksu. Erittäin rasvaista kamaa.

TET (1616) - FINLAND - SEP 7, 2013
A black beer with beautiful, creamy, medium and brown head. The nose is strongly roasted, lactose tartness, coffee and some pleasant, balancing fruitfull sweetness. Taste is powerfull and strongly roasted, black coffee, some sweetness, hint of fruits. Medium bitterness that is slightly herbal. Almost full bodied, quite smooth and pleasant to drink. Powerfull and enjoyable, smooth beer, lots of roastiness with balancing sweet fruits. Smoother and easier than the original Koff Porter.

Lambister (205) - 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.

Very good porter, does not make as big difference compared to regular Koff Porter as I thought it would.

Beerheart65 (1000) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2013
Deep dark brown / black, brown creamy head and bit lacing. Sweet and roasted aroma has coffee, licorice, ripe dark fruits, suryp, bit medical herbs. Medium body, oily feel, sweet and bitter with deep roasting, bitter and tasty roasted finish. Reminds me of koff porter but not that oily and roasted, on the other hand not that tasty either. Still a good one.

Marstonlad (408) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 16, 2013
Pours black with a quite big brownish white head. Aroma of strong roasted maltiness with rye bread, rye pudding and licorice. Taste is dryish, very roasty with rye pudding featuring along with some dark chocolate. Maltiness is very rich, only a little hoppiness can be noticed in the long finish. Medium to full bodied, very smooth, slightly sticky palate. Delicious beer but very, very similar with the original Sinebrychoff Porter, couldn’t tell them apart if tasted blindly. Wouldn’t categorize this to spice/herb/vegetable style, definitely tastes like (baltic) porter.

kustie (135) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2014
Läpinäkymättömän tumma, pitsinen kaunis vaahto. Tuoksussa karamellia, paahteisuutta, makeutta. Maku makea, mutta samalla hapan. Jälkimaussa kahvia, suklaata, paahteista mallasta. Monipuolinen ja tasapainoinen nautiskeluolut.
