Pitch black with a nougat colored and creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, a light sweetness, dark fruits and a touch of chocolate. The same goes for the flavour, where I also find licorice and a light bitterness in the finish. Itís a quite full bodied and warming Baltic porter! Thank you Tom/After4ever - it seems ridicilus to get a Finnish porter all the way from the US - the things we do to get new ratings - tsk, tsk....

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
As Sinebrychoff Porter IV. Bottle from Ledgerís 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 didnít stay long. Thin to medium body with creamy, near chewy, carbonation. The flavor is dark roasted malt, coffee, and light stone fruit? Mouthsmackingly good. Itís 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. Itís really very, very tasty. Try this before you depart this mortal coil.

Tap, Cafť Morshuis Albergen. Almost opague with a grey, lasting head. Roast bitter flavor with a pleasant raspberry fruitiness. Just a bit thin. Roast bitter aftertaste. Not a very rich Baltic porter but very tasty.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled: Deep black coloured. Has a small chocolatebrown head. Liquorice, malt, fruits, roastyness and chocolate notes in the nose. Roasted coffee, fruits and a light bitterness in the flavour. A light liquorice touch. The alcahol is superply hidden. The flavours are well balanced. This beer kind of grows when you drink it. Man this was worth waiting for. It kind of took a long way from Finland over Evansville, Indiana to Copenhagen. Thanks Raindog.
