UPDATED: OCT 11, 2013 Pour is perfect and aroma is coffee and chocolate. Flavor strongly resembles Guinness, but is much less filling. Palate is somewhat oily rather than thick. Outstanding.

I never thought a Baltic Porter would get any better than a Carnegie. But here it is. Finnish, but it sounds Swedish, just like my favourite band Finntroll. This was a bottle, from one of the retailers in Miami. I had it under the lovely Florida air conditioning interiors, and I can only dream of what it is when consumed in a Nordic winter. The beer pours like Aztec chocolate sauce, dark brown pure iodine, with a beautiful creamy head on top. Perfect also on the aroma of black currants/Crème de cassis, blackberries, dark chocolate, and a hint of vanilla. The flavour is just so farking perfect too, with dark, bitter chocolates, caramel, dulce de leche, honey, liquorice, tart berries and a touch of yogurt sourness. There’s a bitterness that balances perfectly against this baccanalle of sweetness, never allowing it to be cheap or cloying. The beer is creamy, velvety, thick and silky on the tongue. Perfect in every single aspect. Sinebrychoff Koff Porter… this beer would get a full five if I ever decided that a beer could deserve a full five.

Moebbels (241) - FINLAND - SEP 21, 2013
The pitch black oily body is covered by a fluffy white head. Nose has notes of coffee, rye, bisquits and chokolate. Taste is mildly sweet with a bitter undertone and a smooth dry finish. Carbonation is mild and the palate full and syrupy. Overall very nice, not too dry as is often the case with this style.

Inbreak (1526) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 08.09.2013, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Nice brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich and sweet, dark malts, chocolate, caramel, coffee, toffee, licorice, nuts, hints of unripe banana. Taste is kind of unbalanced and all over the place, a little boozy, also a little "watery", dark malts, licorice, coffee, burnt caramel, grass, roasted grain. Mild longlasting bitterness. Nice, but I’d say some aging would do this one good.
