On tap at Deep Ellum, body is a pure black with a thin creamy tan head. There is a subtle malty aroma with notes of espresso, peat and a bit of dusty smoke. Flavors of smokey rich coffee and hot choco dominate the pallate with notes of vanilla, honey and dry grass and dried dark fruits. The pure black body goes down with a thin silky mouthfeel with little or no alcohol soak. Really a nice balanced beer with some complex flavors poking around.

Bottle. Very dark, burnt color. thick milk chocolate colored foam. Sweet aroma with syrup and malts. Tastes malts, smoke and chocolate. Not so roasted as appearance and aroma would hint. Feels like melted butter in mouth: oily and runny. Great beer!

Bottle @ home. Pours dark red/brown with a brown large head and nice lacing. Sweet toffee aroma initially. Lots of coffee and figs, There’s leather and some dark chocolate, and more fruitiness apart from figs there are also notes of dry apple and dates, Tar and dry smoked wood , really appealing. Vinous notes appears as it gets warmer. Sweet and dry taste with a distinct earthy and dark chocolate like bitterness in the finish. Medium body and smooth soft carbonation. Taste has coffee, lots of it. Toffee, dark chocolate, dark bread,figs, tar and ash, notes of dry raisins, wood and vanilla. I really appreciated this one, it has a unique, well balanced and complex profile.

BleacherBum (177) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Aroma is of candied malts, coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Taste is more of this, with some hint of vanilla....all very well balanced. No burn whatsoever. A smooth, slick finish with a roasted finish. A really fantastic porter. Smooooooth.

Another fine porter. Not quite up to standards of Londons or Carnegie, but still a top notch example.

bottle, from Downeast Bev. Co. pours balck, with one of the darkest heads i’ve seen. just beautiful. aroma is of bannana and chocalate with some mocha. strong burnt malt flavor, with bitter chocolate. hints of vannila maybe some caramel too. nice hint of hops in the finnish gives it some bite. leaves a coffee aftertaste on the palate. well balanced. smooth and creamy. not a hint of alcohol. definatly one of the best porters i’ve tried.

Mklein818 (172) - Etterbeek, Virginia, BELGIUM - MAY 10, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2005 A great finnish--in more than one sense of the word. This is deep, strong, dry and full of body. This is what Guinness wishes it could be when it grows up!

brewolf (169) - Wilderness, WA, USA, - OCT 13, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2009 Intensely dark in color with minimal, ’leggy’ head. Aroma is fantastic with bits of smoke, coffee, licorice, and brown sugar. Much less sweet than some other highly-regarded baltic porters. Layers of peat, smoke, and roasted malt veil the slightest nuance of green olive. Mouthfeel is smooth, alcohol is supremely hidden, and my only complaint is that the body is a tad thin for the richness of the flavors and aromas. Without a doubt, this is one of the kings of the style. Hail Finland!
