biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2005
Almost black with a thin, tan, creamy head. Tart aroma with leather, caramel and coffee. Big bodied with a clean and tart, mildly bitter finish. Flavors of ash, plum, coffee, burnt toast. Alcohol hides well behind the strong flavors.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2009 Pours absolutely tar black, with a beautiful even brown head, that’s fading a little. I’m smelling fresh grilled franks, with a light ground mustard aroma (seriously). Burnt malt dominates the foreground of the flavor profile, with a little mustard still in there. Finishes with a good burnt nut smack. Very strong and quite delicious. Very rich, smooth, and creamy. A little hint of chocolate, honey and cherries. Palate is even and very silky smooth. Fantastic stuff!

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 5, 2005
Black as night with a medium sized brown head. Chocolate and malt all over the aroma. Flavor is chocolate with some smoky caramel notes and coffee bitterness. Just a touch of sourness in the finish. Very nice.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 1, 2005
Blackened pour (to begin whipping dance of the dead - anyone?), tan creamy head. Real nice nose on this with notes of bitter-sweet chocolate, roasted malt, plum, some cherry, and light caramel, with slight vinous undertones. Nice roasty flavors up front with tangy port, chocolate, and light roasted coffee predominate, but the back end kicks in some nice bitterness for balance. Medium bodied, soft and smooth carbonation, Sahara dry, roasted bittersweet chocolate finish. A very good porter from Finland of all places! Who knew...

Deep brown/black in color with a medium tan head. Aroma is smokey with roasted malt. Flavors of malt, tang of caramel character that starts sweet and finishes dry and roasty.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 25, 2005
a nice solid porter. A lot thicker and darker then I was expecting, but I think i was just happy that this beer washed the hop flavor out of my mouth.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAR 24, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 Bottle 1996: Pitch black body with thick dark brown head. Strong aromas of prune, raison, slight touches of roasted malts, black licorice and fruit sugars. Smooth coffe flavor with the prunes presenting themselves in the back corners of the mouth. Finishes with strong hops. Little to no carbonation.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 10, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2005 pours a nice dark color w/ a big thick dark brown well laced head. Smelled of roasted malts, chocolate, and a touch of something fruity not quite sure wat it was. The palate was solid medium body great carbonation. Flavor reminded me of a stout, had hints of alcohol, strong roasted malts, touch of coffee, a little bitter in the finish.. Overall quite good cold and even better as it warms

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2005 3/6/05:Maybe I was delirious. I tried a Alpha Klaus before this one and the Sinebrychoff (koff or whatever it is) just floored me. What a dream of a porter. Cellar Temp. Black with a brown head, pours like motor oil. Great aroma of chocolate and dates. Light but creamy body avoiding the “isn’t this a stout, pitfall”. Wonderful complexity in the flavor profile. At this point my notes drift into incoherent babble of pure bliss. I returned to note that as and added bonus there are interesting and equally delightful changes as the beer warms. Bravo! 3/27/05 Rerate Was not delerious on first rating. This is one of the best beers I have ever had.
