sopp. Black. Dark, slight sweet licoricy nose. Malty. Med bodied, quite easy, kinda clean too. Bit short finishing, but nice clean drinkable. Feels a bit simple, but hasnt anything offputting either.

Tap at SOPP Hki 2017. Smell of roasted malt and some banana. Very dark brown colour, mid-brown head. Aroma of tar, roasted malt, some mead and syrupy notes. Very sweet. Soft but plentiful carbon. Somewhat dry finish. Toomio (606) - Joensuu, FINLAND - MAY 22, 2017
Aavistuksen sellainen honkavuorimainen laimeus. Maut kohdillaan, mutta ei vaan ihan odotukset täyty. Metso on kyllä kiva eläin. Ukkometso nimittäin etiketissä.

Tap (Villi Waino, Helsinki) TBone (18411) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 8, 2017
Nice roasty aroma, chocolate cake, but some pleasant fruity esters too. Thinnish palate, mostly as the carbonation’s a bit too high. That does reinforce the deceit that it’s not strong. Nice roasty taste, some fruity esters again. Not proclaiming its strength from the rooftops, which I appreciate. A few swirls, and the palate is fixed. Nice rich baltic porter, thumbs up from here.
Tap at HBF. Opaque black color, good brownish head. Toasted malty, chocolaty aroma with vegetably notes. Medium-bodied. Toasted, sweetish malty, a bit chocolaty flavour. Not much hop bitterness. Ok. mjs (7739) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2017
