UPDATED: AUG 31, 2006 (Bottle BB 02/07/07) Roasted malty, coffee-like and chocolaty aroma. Black colour and large, brownish, slightly lasting head with good lacing. Roasted malty, very bitter, coffee-like, licorice-like flavour of long duration. Softly carbonated, slightly astringent, dry and full-bodied palate. Even though some Finnish micro brews are finally starting to approach the quality of ’Sinebrychoff Porter’, it is still the flagship of Finnish beers! An excellent brew! 31/08/06 (original rating was 8/5/8/5/16)

Pours black with thick tan head. Malty aroma with roasted coffee. Slightly bitter overall taste, not overpoweringly roasty. Soft mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Black. I love it. Nice tan head also. Oh...my...god...nice chocolate smell. Looking forward to ths! Top 3 Porter on my list of Porters. Just wow. Not really that carbinated which makes it great! Chocolateness goodness. OH MAN! Also a hint of espresso mixed in it. Great!

Hard to find under it’s "real" name in these listings. The other ratings for this brewer are low. This one isn’t. Pours a very deep thick luxurious coffee color with an almond expresso tanned creamy head. Mouthfeel is very sloid & smooth. Body is heavy and pleasingly so. For 7.2 the alcohol content is well masked. A very surprisingly strong offering.

Migmar (252) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2012
Old Finnish classic, considered by many the best beer in Finland. Indeed, it is very rich in flavour: smoky, bread-like, hint of chocolate and coffee. Full body, medium bitterness. It’s a rich and complex porter, although if my memory serves right it was even better in the past: a strange vegetablish quality has recenty entered the mix.

This porter pours dark black with a dark cream head. It has a nuty and partially sweet aroma and creamy texture with a lingering aftertaste. The long finish will leave you licking your lips.

09.01.13. Bottle. Average size, brown foam. The beer is black. Aroma is a bit sweet, some smoke and malt. Taste is some bitterness and some roasted coffee. Surprisingly high carbonation, too much for me. Aftertaste is watery (a bit), some bitterness.

For some reason I had a positive memory of this one. Certainly great for a Finnish mass-produced beer. However, it lacks the depth to compete with porters I have had. Great value for the Finnish market.

Easily the best Baltic porter that I’ve had.

Chocolatey, fruity undertones. Warm and balanced front with a slight hoppiness in the rear. 1997 vintage.
