Bottle. Pours black with a medium brown foam subsiding a little quick. Scent is light notes if caramel malt and porter yeast. Taste is medium notes of caramel, not sticky, but fairly plain porter. Light notes of cinnamon. Brown sugar. A bit unclean. Very good.

mviljamaa (138) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2017
Pours with an okay head. Color is typical porter color, that is, coffee-like. Aroma is again typical porter: plums, dates, other dark fruits, burnt notes, coffee, mmmi, dark chocolate. A little bit of alcohol, but its not too distinct. Nothing surprising here, but the aroma is still very good. Palate is balanced and has both dry and oily parts. A surprisingly good palate that Ive used to in porters. Taste is light compared to other porters Ive had and its not overwhelmingly "portery", but rather has the sweetness and oversweet malt notes more compromised, which leads to a lighter and less "heavy" expression of the porter style. The beer is thus rather easily drinkable and one doesnt get that "full feeling" that one gets with very rich porters, where just 2 dl might be enough to make you satisfied. This beer can be enjoyed in larger quantities without feeling full of it, so its in some sense similar to Guinness-style stouts. So the taste has typical porter flavours, but in addition few interesting notes like honey and vanilla. A very interesting porter that I would buy again just because of the lighter expression of the porter style, which enables one to enjoy this beer in 0.5l to 1 liter or more quantities, rather than 0.2 dl.

tfontana (939) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Manchester Wine and Liquors. Appearance is dark brown with slight reddish hue; 3-finger width, crackling, fizzy, light brown head with poor retention and no lacing. Aroma is caramel malts with light anise and spice (allspice?). Taste is sweet caramel malt with mild dark fruit, earthy hops. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with moderately thick texture, average carbonation and dry, crisp, mild malt finish. Overall, some interesting features but not mind blowing.
