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.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - SEP 3, 2004
Roasty aroma, roasty, cinnamon, tangy and spicey taste for a porter. nice smooth mouthfeel, creamy tan head that lasts.

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 Iíd 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 itís company. Let the world shut off around me, neglect thoughts of duller cares, and let this magnificent creation perform itís 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!

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 26, 2004
Thick dark brown with a lasting thin brown head. Strong malty aroma with scents of molasses, honey and light alcohol. Very smooth with long smokey notes, chocolate and noticeable bitterness in the finish. Body is not as thick as I would have thought. Quality.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 26, 2004
Aroma is understated - chocolate, molasses and vinous notes. Pours an opaque black, beautiful bubbly brown head and lacing. Smooth chocolate all the way down. Sweetness, smokiness. Creamy palate. Slight bitter finish. Iím not a big fan of stouts and porters but this was top shelf.

notalush (5328) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2004
A quality baltic porter, to be sure - creamy head, but perhaps a body a bit too "see-through" for the style (kind of looks like coke) - dates and plums in the aroma - medium body, silky mouthfeel - flavor reminds me of dark-colored European hard candies (that makes sense, right?) - espresso and a touch of toffee - a biting bitterness cuts in abruptly near the finish, which sometimes was not very enjoyable - otherwise a solid beer, but ranks about in the middle on the scale of baltic porters Iíve tried.

1996 vintage. Dark ruby-black colour with a small tan head. Rich aroma of coffee, chocolate, licorice and raisins. Creamy body. Warm, roasty flavour of sweet malt, coffee & chocolate. Finish holds some smoky alcohol and a good hop bite. Excellent stuff - thanks, DougShoemaker!
