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.

Dark obsidian with a nice 1" tan head Smells wonderful chocolate,coffee and toffee..I was disappointed in the taste I liked the taste of treacle and its maltiness but the bitter astringent finish put me off...

man was this tasty. this was the 96 edition. kinda tasted like a barly wine with a porter mix. nice chocolaty roasted flavor. aroma was very potent of malts with a hint of alcohol. same goes for the after taste.

maybe not a fair review as I sampled this after Santas Little Helper. Cola color with quickly disappearing head, very carbonated, watery palate thin porter metallic notes ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My first Baltic Porter! I hope this is typical of the style. A frothy tan head sits atop a very dark and cloudy(?) brew. Rich burnt taste and ever so slightly swampy. Like the black mud by trout creek. One of the top 10 I’ve had. Purchased at Surdyks in Minneapolis, MN

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2005 3/6/05:Maybe I was delirious. I tried a Alpha Klaus before this one and the Sinebrychoff (koff or whatever it is) just floored me. What a dream of a porter. Cellar Temp. Black with a brown head, pours like motor oil. Great aroma of chocolate and dates. Light but creamy body avoiding the “isn’t this a stout, pitfall”. Wonderful complexity in the flavor profile. At this point my notes drift into incoherent babble of pure bliss. I returned to note that as and added bonus there are interesting and equally delightful changes as the beer warms. Bravo! 3/27/05 Rerate Was not delerious on first rating. This is one of the best beers I have ever had.

Poured a deep mohagony to black fluffy brown head. A sweet and grass like aroma was present with a touch of roast malt. Flavor was sweet with noticable notes of molases and honey backed up by dark fruit..

Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a deep black liquid that light can not penetrate with a small amount of dark caramel colored head that dissipates quickly to nothing. Aroma is of a sweet molasses with alcohol and a small cherry character. Flavor is a somewhat dry cherry and slight roasted coffee with a small, dry ending. Nothing to really hate, but nothing to really love, either. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

Tap into half pint. Black, thin espresso foam color head. Nose mostly of Vettel and dark malt.In the mouth immediate sour note, like a Flemish sour. Hops mid way, and finishes with a more traditional dry roast. Not a typical porter by any means but really interesting and multilayered.
