The aroma of this tar colored beer is exquisite. It smells of rich chocolate, almost like a chocolate cheesecake, with overtones of roasted coffee. The flavor is more robust, there is a strong, smoky roasted flavor and some bitter kick in the background. Some flavor almost reminescent of powdered espresso beans is noticeable. The finish is all roasted maltiness and coffee flavor. This is a great porter, which is full bodied but drinkable, and smooth yet potently flavorful. Seek this out if you enjoy dark beers.

Thanks to Girlie for this one. Last one of the bunch that she sent to me for my birthday. Agree with the previous post - Scandanavian brewers have nailed this style. Gorgeous deep/dark pour and a fluffy, long-lasting rich tan head. Takes a good 5 minutes for the head to dissipate. Aroma is slightly sweet, with the heavy aroma of roasted malt. Slight hoppiness in the aroma as well. Flavor is consistent with aroma - strong roasted flavors with coffee and slight chocolate. Nice bitterness on the back of the palate to round out the full flavor of this one. Excellent brew.

Bottled. Very dark color with nice beige head. Aroma is packed with chocolate, roasted malts and coffee. Nice warming finish. This is probably the best Finland has to offer in terms of beer.

Deep black color with a viscous quality. Sweet, alcoholy flavor. Tastes a little like syrup. Rich, deep chocolate flavor with some mild bitterness. Very good.

This is a huge beer with tons of flavor. Chocolate, fruits and roasty flavors are overwhelmed by raisin which lasts through the finish. I would prefer the raisin were toned down a bit. But still a monster beer.

Dark black-brown, opaque appearance, with a small but very dark brown head. Absolutely beautiful. Aroma of prunes and blackstrap molasses. The flavor is rich and roasty with blackstrap molasses. What a fine porter indeed!
