Bottle. (trade w/tbone_) Pours very dark brown, almost black, and is topped by a creamy, beige head. Fruity and slightly oxidized nose, with chocolate and roasted malt. The same goes for the flavor, but there’s a weak note of coffee there as well. It finishes quite dry, with chocolate, roasted malt, some fruityness and bitterness. I would like a fuller body on the beer, and also some more hops, but it is definately a nice beer. (070809)

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2009 Bottle
Black colour, small dark brown/coffee head. Sweet caramel and bread aroma. Mouthfeel very full and smooth. Roasted malt, lightly bitter finish. (7/4/7/5/16 3.9)
Re-rated, bottled (BB 05/2005, brewed in Kerava)
Opaque black with good and steady brown cappuchino head. Nose is fruity, sweet with hints of smoke. Mouthfeel is bitter, full-bodied with roasted malts and dark chocolate. Pleasant bitter aftertaste. (7/5/8/4/17 4.1)
Re-rated Feb 2009 (BB 11/2009). Dark almost opaque brown color, huge espresso head, lace. Dark fruits, caramel malts, roasted malts and licorice in the nose. Full-bodied. Creamy texture. Quite roasted front with lingering licorice, molasses and pick of alcohol. When warms up, some lactose. Although technically impy, there is something baltic porter -like here. Original yeast of this beer was stolen from Guinness brewery in the 1950s. (8/5/8/4/17 4.2)

Jet black, warmingly fruity ( burnt fruitcake, raisins), long, long finish. The best of the Baltic porters, and I’ve had a few. Se on hyvää olutta.

As Sinebrychoff Porter IV. Bottle from Ledger’s Liquors. Top fermentation! Go Finns! It pours like oil. It smells like dark fruit with a hint of coffee. The color is opaque black with a tan head that didn’t stay long. Thin to medium body with creamy, near chewy, carbonation. The flavor is dark roasted malt, coffee, and light stone fruit? Mouthsmackingly good. It’s going really well with lox, but the lox smoke may affect the ale flavor. Maybe there is some cola in this. It is very tasty. The finish is not all that dry, has remnants of dark roast, and a hint of hop. Maybe light stone fruit, and more than a hint of hop. I think this ale changes from moment to moment. It’s really very, very tasty. Try this before you depart this mortal coil.

Bottle [thanks to tiong] @ home shared with Illuvatarmilan. Opaque pitch black color, full sized a bit creamy brown head. Aroma is malts, coffee, dark malts, dark fruits. Taste malts, dark malts, dark fruits, nicely bitter in the end, but a touch of sweetness at first. Nice!

UPDATED: APR 15, 2009 Keg (St. Urho’s, Helsinki). The Baltic Porter style is basically the Imperial Stout of old, and this is a perfect example. Heavy oily roasted aroma, but not enough to prepare you for the huge smack in the gob when you first taste it. Sweet, spicey, coffee, malty by the bucketload, with crisp bitter notes, and a sharpness from the carbonation that almost makes this 7.2%-er "refreshing". All of the above is well balanced I must add, which might be due to it being top-fermented.
