Sinebrychoff Porter is a dark unfiltered beer manufactured by using top fermentation. Munich malts and plenty of hops impart a strong flavour to the beer.

Dark brown, almost black beer w/ a short lived light milk chocolate brown head. Chocolate malted milk shake, toasty wheat bread malt and diacetyl dominate at first. Some caramel that is toffee paired w/ the diacetyl. Roast is an afterthought. Very little fruitiness. Well balanced, but sweet malt flavored with chocolate and caramel. Bready malt flavor, semi sweet finish, like Nestle tollhouse morsels, and a lightly roasty dry aftertaste. Very little fruitiness in the flavor, but it is lightly raisiny. Very smooth bodied, well hidden alcohol, fuller medium body, low carbonation. Damn! This is a good beer. Alcohol is a little high for a session beer, but is well hidden and could be sort of dangerous if you are a porter or stout lover. Well Done!

1997 vintage
The pour is just fantastic, thick syrupy grape juice colored nectar. The aroma is mild - likely due to the mellowing of the hops. The flavor is also of red grape, but seems to just be starting to turn. I think this beer is on the downside of its prime, and will be seeking a fresher bottle.

Nice tannic head with weak lacing. Great aromas of chocolate, malt and straw-banana yogurt. Strikingly complex flavor - perhaps the hoppiest porter of which I am aware. Malt is pleasant, subdued compared to the aroma. There are also subtle flavor elements of corn, toffee and port wine. The body is bubbly and rich but perhaps slightly too thick for this style. In the past I wasnt much of a porter person but lately Ive come across some great ones - including Sinebrychoff

piscator34 (2362) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 24, 2004
Black in colour with a small off white head. Aromas of sweet malt, dark berry fruit, and a bit of soy. Flavors of prune dominate along with notes of black licorice and a bit of iron. Nice mouthfeel. Less "bright" fruit than I had expected, and quite dominant alcohol presence as well.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2006 I had the opportunity to re-sample a bottle of Sinebrychoff Porter. Well blended mix of chocolate and licorise malts with a spicy yeast. Sweet and roasted malts flavor. An intersting twist on a Baltic Porter, I think it has a bit of English influence. Original rating 11.19.04 @ 3.1 It was a five year old bottle, probably past its prime.

Pours absolutely black with a lasting tan head. Carmel and coffee aroma with some hops. Caramel and coffee again in the flavor but it was all much more subtle than I expected. Also seemed a little thin on the palate but overall Id say this is a great porter.
