Bottle from Tbone, thanks! Dark brown color. Smoke, roast and a hint of caramel in both aroma and flavor. Medium bodied, slightly alcoholic. Cigar aroma and a hint of pear drups in the aftertaste. Lovely!

Bottled 330ml from Alko. ABV 6.5%. Dark brown color, small brownish head. Wood, wet smoked in the nose. Medium-bodied, crisp carbonation. Ashy, tobacco flavor. Quite decent maltyness, no alcohol. Quite special, not anything to drink in quantities.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Best before 01/11/13. Bought from alko as savuruis portteri. Almost black with a large long lasting off-white head. Aroma is smoke, ashtray, a hint of booze and roast. Taste is harsh ashtray, roast, smoke and a hint of hops and malts. Aftertaste turns into a nice hoppiness. Dunno, not really enjoyable, maybe better when fresh.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black with meagre white head. Smoky aroma, with some roasty coffee. Medium sweetness in the beginning, light bitterness at the end. Palate is disappointingly watery. Ticks many of my favourite boxes on paper, but doesn’t really deliver on this promise: just too soft and light.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark brown, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate - full, malty and sweetish aroma, roasted malt - light burnt malt, some coffee and faint smokiness. Body is medium to full, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, some roasted malt and some coffee, faint smokiness and light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish, roasted malt - light burnt malt, light dark bread and light coffee, light hoppyness. Dryish roasted porter - not really a "rauch bier".

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer resembles Cola in its dark reddish-brown, the minimal amount of head and the fizzy sound of carbonation it makes whilst pouring into the glass. That's where the similarities end. The aroma has roasted malts, smoke and dark bread. Taste adds some sweetness and bitterness with medium full body and long crisp finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is light sweet smoky malts. Black beer light brown head. Taste is medium smoke light sweetness. Body is medium , light fizzy, otherwise smooth. Didnt get the rye but i guess its there somewhere. Like the name says , smoked porter. Nothing great but a nice beer. Not too heavy for the summer either.
