Dark colour and tan head. I felt a bit disappointed by this, it’s quite sweet and the taste buds didn’t have to work overtime, as they have gotten used to. Still a good beer. (Bottle) MOboy (510) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - APR 16, 2002
beautiful dirty motor oil brown color. Wonderful milk chocolatey and alcohol scent with a smokey malt flavor and a hint of prune. Very smooth and finishes oily. One of the better baltic porters I have had. Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2011
Bottle. Black, with a small beige head. Aroma is of ashes, burnt malts, coffee, dark chocolate. Some dark fruits. Kind of earthy. Quite a bit of burnt sourness in the flavour department. Very earthy, with some coffee note. Leaning towards the bitter side of balance. with a bitter/sour finish. Medium to light bodied, not a lot of carbonation, a little bit.. limp. Not a favourite, but decent I guess. Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2007
Soft roastiness followed by a mixture of coffee and chocolate with slightly fruity hops at the end. AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2005
!998 version. Black in color, opaque with a dark, tan head. Aroma of a chocolate brownie and dark fruit. Surprisingly in good shape at 5.5% ABV. It had none of the overcarbonated, exhausted character that many beers of this ABV would display after 7 years. A huge, toasted, port-like, vinous character makes up most of the flavor profile.

A fresh bottle & a 2000 vintage bottle in a huge porter butt on the banks of Ålva. The fresh sample is roasted but grainy, watery, pasteurized indeed. The vintage sample, on which the score is based, is mellow, medium bodied, nice oxidized and dusty, chocolatey, good. SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2003
A very dark brown color, with a small tan head. Very sweet aroma with touches of coffee and roasted malt. Fairly thin mouthfeel, but a tad oily. Taste is a bit more mild than I expected, but still very good. Not as heavy or full-flavored as I think a porter should be, but still pretty good.
