Armadill0 (330) - FINLAND - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle. Black-dark brown. Thick medium brown foam. Roasted malt aroma, medium strong. Taste is a bit bitter. Malts, fruity hops, syrup. Surprisingly bittersweet with a malty body. Some carbonation feel. Good long bitter aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden.

rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - FEB 14, 2010
Pours black with large rocky, tan head; sweet aroma of molasses, toasted caramel and brown sugar; medium to full body, smooth texture; flavor of roasted barley and bitterness with sweet toffee notes; burnt finish and aftertaste. The aroma doesn´t really match with the taste nor is it the strong point of the beer otherwise, but still this is a great baltic porter and besides Winter War and the ice hockey world championship 1995 one of the few things the people in Finland can be proud of.

gsteph (322) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 18, 2004
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.

Velkyal (320) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2012
3 year old bottle. Pours an inky black with a steady schmeer of light brown foam. The aroma is rich dark chocolate, with traces of spice and a very faint sherry note. Tastewise, rich malty sweetness and a riot of chocolate and coffee fight it out and yet find balance with a subtle but firm hop bite. Full bodied, but not cloying. Very nice.

Frahmo (316) - Idaho, USA - DEC 19, 2013
On tap at bittercreek, black pour with minimal head. Fruity, sour but almost sweet overtones. Dry. Salty aftertaste. Thin body, medium carbonation. Weird tasting beer.

antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2006
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. The alcohol comes through strongly in the nose. Heavy body, with a great amount of bitterness that gives a great taste. Alcohol is a bit strong in the flavor, but a good porter.

zapprentice (314) - East Setauket, New York, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Tap at Ginger Man. Ehh. not very complex. Aroma is roasted malts and some strange sours sweetness. Flavor is roasted malt and coffee with not much else.

jumpjet2k (314) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Bottle. Been looking forward to trying this one out. Pours like a big stout, not a porter - opaque black and a big foamy brown head. Aroma is big and malty - fruit and chocolate notes, tobacco, and a little booze. The flavor is much more subdued, though, with a sweet malt layer carrying along some roast and minimal hop flavors. Palate is just a little thinner than I’d like. I spent some time with this porter, trying to figure it out. It has an particular character that I can’t quite define. It’s not the biggest or most complex porter, but it’s certainly an interesting one to drink. Take your time with it, too - I came to enjoy it more as it continued to warm a bit.

Merc (313) - Pullman, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2003
Wonderfully dark with a huge head. Aroma of molasses, some caramel, a bit syruppy. Appropriate palate. Nicely roasted flavour, with some coffee and vanilla, more caramel.
