Poured from a 330 ML bottle into a snifter at the World of Beer in Cary, NC. Wow, the appearance is pure black gold with a small creamy tan head . The aroma is full of malt, coffee bean and cocoa. . . outstanding. The flavor is pure malt heaven and is very rich. An outstanding porter.

Looks pitch black with a creamy brown head. Oily texture and strong roast for my first notes. The sweetness is kept low, that’s good. Full bodied and just enough carbonation to get it going. Finishes with bitterness and ash. It’s a good porter and it doesn’t cost as much as craft beer.

Kølsvart ,med brunt skum. Intens duft med kaffe, lakris og brunt sukker. Smaken domineres av lakris og knekk. Fin bitterhet, men også litt søt mot slutten. Kunne med fordel vørt litt fyldigere,

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of soy and alcohol. Slightly watery, above-average carbonation. Precise taste, might be because it’s such a familiar beer. Hints of raisin, citrus and floral flavor. Great porter and great choice when in a Finnish bar -almost all the places have this, and it’s cheap, as well.
