Bottle bought on ferry to Åland. Malty, chocolate , coffee . Less sweet than other baltic porters, which is good. Maybe a little too much smokiness.

Lyhyt maku, joskin ihan hyvä. Suutuntumakin lyhyt, mutta sekin hyvä. Puolivälin olut.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle as a gift from Helsinki. BB unreadable. Brown in colour, head is tan and big, retains and laces nicely. Both nose and taste - chocolate and toffee with some sourish notes. Tastes consideably bitter as well, especially in the finish. Lactic. Very sweet. Pretty harsh lingering bitterness in the finish. Carbonation active, body medium, palate somewhat grainy. Not too sure about this. Ok to sip while watching a stupid 1980s Sci-Fi movie.

330ml bottle bought at Alko in Kemi. Pours a big rocky, fawn-coloured head to a coal black body. Crocheted lacing on the glassware. Taste of brown malts and sweet chocolate. The taste profile follows suit with milk chocolate, dried fruits, and caramel nicely offset by a roasted bitter ending. Well bodied. Enjoying (shared with djoeye, Tromsø 16.03.2015).
