Tap @Beer Huntersal53 (96) - FINLAND - SEP 10, 2013
Deep black color, good creamy fluffy brown head, lace. Smokey, smokey ham and peat aroma. Medium-bodied. Front has some licorice, tobacco, roasted flavors then good smokeyness. Lingering nice bitterness in the aftertaste. Solid. Some batches have been even few points better.
Draught. Black with small head.
Smoke and chocolate in aroma.
Metal, coal, chocolate and smoke in taste. Very bitter. Being in glass for a while, comes smoother. More chocolate and sweetness comes up with the smoke. Very bitter, dry and smoky aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Draught at SOPP 2013. Smell of smoke and ash. Dark brown colour, beige head. Aroma of smoke, ash, tar. Flat carbon, ashy. Not good as smoke beer, but good as gritty dry porter. Tide (3904) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2013
Draught at Bryggeri Helsinki. Black color, brown head. Bitter taste with smoke, coffee, liquorice, nuts and a bit of oak. Bitter finish with smoke and coffee. Excellent smoked porter. Brandman (2950) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 26, 2013
Black body, brown head. Roasted malts, coaly texture, smoked chocolate. Really simple and enjoyable.

Sweetish, but hugely heavy smokey aroma. Black, with a keggy tan head. Very full palate. Huge sticky tarry taste. Full of yum - I could session this. Heavy, but in no way oppressive. Finish dry, and very tarry. A lovely savu,

2013) Very dark reddish brown with a medium, lacy, beige head. Peaty-smoky aroma with slight sourness. Sourish flavor with roasted and slightly charcoaly maltiness, and some Czech-style sweetness. Medium body, reasonably smooth yet lightly rough palate with soft CO2. A secent, lightly smoky stout, but badly shadowed by the Lyttskär Gose I had just before this.
Draught at the HBF 2013, Helsinki, Finland.Erasmus_ro (2945) - Alabama, USA - APR 20, 2013
Black colour with a small tan head.
Smoke, smoked ham, mild sourness and sweat in the aroma.
Roasted malt, mild bitterness and a truck load of smoke.
The strong smokiness is hiding pretty much everything else.
Tap @ HBF2013. Pours a dark wooden brown, almost black with a medium sized, latte-colored head. Aroma is roasted, smoky, sooty, even burnt. Taste is more roast and coffee, less smoke. Smoke and soot is more in the background. Fairly light, not much carbonation. RexTalionis (3765) - FINLAND - APR 20, 2013
Draught. Pours dark brown in color with a creamy tan head. Smoke, some burnt wood and some old rubber notes in aroma. Light smokiness and some licorice in taste, salty notes as well. Smokey and burnt wooden notes in aftertaste.
