Suttree (5149) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 28, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2003 Puors black and oily looking with a sandy brown head that kind of grows in the glass, if you know what I mean. Smells of alcohol and grapes. Thick and mouth coating, with a touch of sweetness, then a big bitter finish. As the glass warms, though, alcohol seems to dominate the flavor. Pretty good porter, though. Note tried this again recently. Bumped up my overall.

Poured a completely opaque black with a thick, dark khaki head. Nice lacing. Aroma was of dark roasted coffee and malt. Tasted of roasted malt with a smooth, lightly bitter coffe-like finish. An excellent porter.

A jet-black coffeelike porter with a thin brown head. Very nice malty flavor with chocolate-caramel undertones. Doesn't taste like 7.2%. Nice smooth finish too!

cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - SEP 7, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2004 Rich, creamy and a ton of espresso qualities present here. Rich, dark and complex. The base of roasted malts definitely made this one. Vinous, thick, not a lot of coffee, raspberry truffle nuances.

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - SEP 4, 2003
Chocolate and anise nose. totally opaque black. Crazy flavors in this. Has a woody/smokey drieness. Excellent balance. Rerate 5 minutes after initial review.: this stuff is great. What a great find to taste an excellent porter from Finland. I feel like I'm on vacation.

madsberg (10241) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2003
Bottled: Deep black coloured. Has a small chocolatebrown head. Liquorice, malt, fruits, roastyness and chocolate notes in the nose. Roasted coffee, fruits and a light bitterness in the flavour. A light liquorice touch. The alcahol is superply hidden. The flavours are well balanced. This beer kind of grows when you drink it. Man this was worth waiting for. It kind of took a long way from Finland over Evansville, Indiana to Copenhagen. Thanks Raindog.

TheBeerGod (5263) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 28, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2003 Pours a deep brownish black with a small, dark brown head. The nose is definitely chocolate and coffee, but also some alcohol notes along with mint and licorice hint. Bittersweet tongue with coffee dominating over any other tastes. Seems sweeter than it should be. Finishes with a little bitterness on the tongue. Great stuff though!

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2003
Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a deep black liquid that light can not penetrate with a small amount of dark caramel colored head that dissipates quickly to nothing. Aroma is of a sweet molasses with alcohol and a small cherry character. Flavor is a somewhat dry cherry and slight roasted coffee with a small, dry ending. Nothing to really hate, but nothing to really love, either. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

1996 bottle. Black as night with a brown, long lasting thin head. Strong aroma of roasted malt. Dominant malt flavor with hints of chocolate and coffee. Bitter finish. Very good, I'll need more of these for the winter.

The first beer I ever had. I still drink it more often than any other beer because it's the only really great beer made in Finland (read: the only really great beer you can get for a reasonable price in this country). It tastes the best when it's room temperature or even a bit warmer.
