Purchased at Binny’s in Chicago, IL; enjoyed after my first visit to the nordic countries. I couldn’t find this Finnish brew when I was in Sweden, but sure enough they have it in Chicago, hence I bought it. Appearance is a thick pitch black with a light tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of chocolate malt, light molasses, light cough syrup. Taste goes down with a syrupy chocolate flavor, light burn, light hop profile, overall a decent baltic porter. There was dust on the bottle, therefore I’m concerned it’s not as fresh, but it’s still pretty good.

(Bottle). Sweet and slightly metallic scent of roasted malt and hops. Taste of slightly burnt malt, hops and alcohol. Especially in the aftertaste flavor of alcohol. Strange how this beer can get so good ratings, I’m not impressed!

33cl, Hemma, 16/4-14, Bäst före: 27-12-2014 U: Kolsvart, stort kompakt fluffigt krämigt brunt skum som klänger snyggt längs glaskanten. D: Söt rostad och något syrligt askig doft med choklad, bränt trä, lite rökt chark, aska och lite röda bär. Lite vaxduk kikar fram efter en stund. S: Söt och bränt rostad med syrligt askigt/bärigt avslut. Choklad, aska, citrus & röda bär, trä och läder. M: Medelstor till större kropp med mjuk fyllig kolsyra och len textur. T: En riktigt trevlig baltic stout med bra drag i de rostade smakerna. Lite askig och syrlig, men det vägs upp rätt bra av chokladsmaken. Kroppen klenar ur lite.

Bottle from rosenbergh, many thanks! Ins Glas ergießt sich ein sehr dunkelbraunes fast schwarzes Bier mit schöner bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch schokoladig, dunkle Früchte, Kaffee. Geschmack röstmalzig, dunkle Früchte, leicht alkoholisch, einfach lecker!

Big chestnut head, good lacing, on opaque black body. Aroma is dark malt and dried plums. Flavor is dark chocolate and raisins, touch of yeast and iron, molasses, and mildly bitter black malt finish. Body is a little thin, carbonation fine, a little bit on the high side for style. Metal taste is persistent. Otherwise this is very good.

This is the solid choice from finnish Alko. Taste is round, thick and malty. Very nice drink to enjoy sipping slowly.

What I found in Finland and the Baltics, was that when it came to "old" style beers (pre-craft beer revolution), the lagers were quite dreadful, while the "under appreciated" porters (Baltic) were really good, of fine quality and style. This one was roasty with a good hop profiel, nice ashy afternotes and unfiltered as well. A good 7.2 made it a top notch Porter in my opinion.

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (20:-). Rostad malt, karamell, kaffe, choklad, lakrits, charkuterier, sötma, medelfyllig till fyllig, oljig konsistens. Avslutningen torr och besk med rejält rostade toner.
