Interesting, a porter that doesnt make me want to kill a small kitten after drinking it. Dark with a thin chocolaty brown/grey head. The nose is sweet and bitter with a buch of malts. The taste definately have a cool chocolate feel to it. Not bad overall.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 ReRate-2003 bottle-pours almost pitch black with a nice tan head with good lacing. sweet, chocolate, slilghtly woody/funk/skunk/lager thing going on. You can tell this beer has some age to it,. but its not badly oxidized. dark chocolate, roast, coffee and those oxidative notes finish out the flavors with some burnt notes alongside. It held up pretty well, but the finish shows the oxidization. Thick, dark, and clean. Goes down smooth and is tasty at any temperature. Tasty malt and a coffee/woody aftertaste makes this an enjoyable porter.

Thickset molasses colored pour, settles opaque and black with a tall cocoa brown head thats fluffy yet crumbly after a vigorous pour, takes forever to work its way down to one super thick maze of a skim on top and oodles of ink blobby lacing sticks all over the glass. Beautiful! Aroma of subdued plum, raisin, and molasses, gains more roastyness as it warms and gets a bit more complex in the malts. Dustings of cocoa and soft smoked wood emerge as well. Taste has a smooth, well rounded roasty feel, hardly overbearing at all, just a whole lotta smooth. Easy going black malts with a bit of sweet chocolate roast. Nice earthy backing of smokey malts that still maintains a strong base of roast. Touches of tangy prunes, some molasses, and darker toffee keep some interesting sweeter tones over the top of the roast. Finish has very nice mixture of both sweet and roasted characteristics with a softly drying lofty edge via moslty chocolate. Feel is quite smooth, sweet and roasty tones always switching within the medium full body. Slightly dry finish with a certain tang left over. A solid baltic porter that keeps a real nice smoothness the whole duration making for one sound drinkin’ porter. One that grows on ya.

Darkest brown apperance, rapidly fading head. Aroma of dark fruits, hint of chocolate. Medium body, predominately fudge flavors with a hint of plum. Very nice, if not insanely complex. Excellent example of the style.

I love porters and really enjoyed exposing myself to this one. Deep sultry malts with a black smoothness and an archaic earthy flavor. Ample tawny head the color of Eriophorum chamissonis trichomes that lasts to the end, lacing its way down the glass. The aroma is chestnut and dark roasted marshmallow both of which breach into the flavor with zeal. The carbonation is perfect and serves to solidify the palate and overall mouth feel. The hops lend exquisite bitterness moments after the malty tones are swallowed. There is also a slight lactic nature to the mouthfeel. Bottom line, one hell of a porter (though very stout-like) that everyone should expose themselves to as soon as possible.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2005 Bottle: Aroma is coffee, chocolate and cream. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a small tan head. Flavor is very malty and very high in chocolate. Very sweet. Some coffee with cream. Finishes more on the coffee side, with a chocolate and cream aftertaste. This is excellent. A must try. As of beer 71, this tops my list. Don’t know if this makes a difference but bottled in 1997, bottle #0950.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 22, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2006 Black colored, brown lasting head. Aroma has chocolate, caramel sweetness and roasted tones in aroma. Mild alcohol with some fruits comes up also. Almost full bodied. Sweetness, fruits, roastiness and coffee in flavor with medium chocolate. Ends with roasted, mildly bitter, dry and alcoholic tones. Aftertaste is pretty lasting.

I don’t know, tihs beer is an enigma. Pours really great, decent aroma for a porter, nice head and lacing, but the taste seems to be a little off... but in retrospect the flavor is ok. enigma...what the hell. seems like i got kicked in the head by a pack of wild hyenas, and then my throat got ripped out by a flock of roaming vampires and then my essence was drained by a murder of migrant tigers. weird stuff. not great, but not too bad.

Deep black with caramel head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, smoke, and fruit. Strong bittersweet flavors combining very strong, almost burnt coffee, bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, and mocha, all wrapped up in a smoky blanket. Thick and chewy while smooth and silky. Excellent roasted malt sweetness that finishes with a bittersweet finish. Perfectly balanced.
