Sinebrychoff Porter is a dark unfiltered beer manufactured by using top fermentation. Munich malts and plenty of hops impart a strong flavour to the beer.

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.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 Bottle 1996: Pitch black body with thick dark brown head. Strong aromas of prune, raison, slight touches of roasted malts, black licorice and fruit sugars. Smooth coffe flavor with the prunes presenting themselves in the back corners of the mouth. Finishes with strong hops. Little to no carbonation.

Medium dark brown foam. The darkest foam I have seen so far on a stout. Deep deep dark brown color that you cannot see through. Malty aroma. Malty sweet taste first on the palate that turns bitter in the appropriate place and rolls into that nicely. The finish is bitter and lasting but not overwhelming. Very nice.

goz (358) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 24, 2003
Pours an almost opaque dark brown, with a slight garnet tinge to it. Head is medium in size, dark tan in color, leaves good lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel, light dough, and mild chocolate. Flavor is roasted malts, coffee, bitter chocolate. Body is medium, medium carbonation, and goes down quite smooth.

extremely dark in color. The aroma is very complex, vanilla, caramel come through. The palate is a bit light for my taste, however the complexity of the dark malt is really wonderfull.

A very nice chocolatey full-bodied porter, perfect for chilly winter evenings. Good balance of the ingredients. Pleasant lingering palate.

taunusmies (350) - FINLAND - MAR 12, 2008
Pours black with a large brown head. Strong, malty, roasted taste with aromas of coffee, smoke and dark chocolate. Surprisingly thin mouthfeel but definitely not watery. Slightly carbonated.

bombshelter (349) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 29, 2006
bottle from whole foods. pours an opaque black, with carbonation that needs coaxing out. aroma is sweet caramel malts, roast...actualy quite like coffee. full bodied. flavor is tremendous: hot chocolate, caramel candies, little bits of toast, and a just slightly sweet finish. no noticable hops, but the finish is drier than you would expect. a tremendous porter.
