UPDATED: DEC 14, 2004 Original Rating - September 15, 2004: Black color with a thin head. Smallish roasted aroma. Strangely large hop taste in addition to the malts. Dry. A tad thick. Quite tasty. 7-4-7-4-16 Bottled 1997 Vintage (#2110), Tasted and Re-rated December 13, 2004: I didn’t pick up on the hop taste, but there was an obvious soy sauce quality this time around in both the taste and aroma. The little bit of salt present was likely derived from that. Still dry. The body was more medium than thick. I think the age gave the Baltic flavors time to come out and shine. 7-4-8-4-17

Black Coloring. Good Tan Head. Coffee Roasts, Malt Aroma. Malt and Hop Bite, Dry on the Tongue. Unusual Amount of Hops for a Porter...at least What I’m Used To. Still a Very Good Porter..

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2004
Nice tall and thick tan head with good lacing, dark brown/black body. Roasted dark fruit aroma... chocolate, grapes, prunes, bandaids. Good aroma, but a bit light. Subtle licorice hints in the flavor, along with blackberries, roasted chocolate, and a slight pleasant hop bitterness. Smooth and soft mouthfeel.

A very dark brew.lots of rich milk chocolate foam.The aroma coming of this wasn’t very descript.The flavor was much more apparent then the aroma witha nice blend of roasted malts and a nice blast of bitterness from the hops.Good body and a nice finish.I was a little suspect withthe lack of nose but the flavors did step up to the plate.

Bottle from 1998. Pours opaque, deep black. Nice brown head, medium lived. Good lacing. Aroma is malt, chocolate, caramel, fruit. Mouthfeel is medium to full. Perhaps some oxidized flavors. Malt flavor predominates, good hop balance. Subtle hop finish. Need to try a newer bottle.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2004
Yum. Opaque black with a nice tan head. Smoke, dark roast coffee and roasted malt aromas supported by rummy, raisiny aromas. Nice heavy body with rich coffee tones again taking the lead followed by dark chocolate and dark rum flavors playing a supporting role. Quite complex. Alcohol is present, but certainly not overwhelmingly so. On the contrary - it plays well with the other flavors and aromas.

After having a couple of lackluster-to-awful porters, I was only too happy to rush into the arms of this little Finnish beauty, whose depth and character I’d already been acquainted with, and the reunion was most satisfying. Color, a thorough black, firmly opaque, with a flourishing, brown, cakey head, puffy, crusty, elegantly crumbling down. A bewitching brunette. Aroma is sinfully dark, and smooth, carefree, untroubled, untrammelled. Espresso notes, rich and bitter, emerge and dominate, but not suffocating the essentially smooth and creamy character. Smooth and bitter, it may seem contradictory, but that is the way with complex personalities. A pleasure to drink deep into the nose, offering further complexities the furhter along we go. On first taste, a great blaze of bitterness, that soon mellows. Excellent texture, perfect play ont hetongue, long, tasty finish. Full-bodied, full-flavored, sturdy and spectacular mouthfeel, giving away associations of molasses, rum, raisins, chocolate, warm, rich, lush, giving. This is the stuff, I kept thinking, and felt the desire to nothing but luxuriate in it’s company. Let the world shut off around me, neglect thoughts of duller cares, and let this magnificent creation perform it’s work upon me. The heat and the flavor grow more intense and powerful and the glass grows empty, making the the final sips strain slower, eking them out at miniscule increments, that I might savor every ...last...drop...ah!
