An opaque red-brown beer with a small brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of chocolate and the flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, roasted malt, and hops. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2007

Deep amber colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is really pleasantly roasted malts, some hoppy bitterness along with mild woodenness. Flavour is quite much the same. The roast stays really long and also has some mild candyish hints.
From notes. Deep reddish brown with a medium off white head. Aroma of cocoa and licorice. Flavor has roasted malts, chocolate and a finish of light smoke and bitterness. Nice. fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 29, 2007

Dark amber color. Simple aroma. Good flavor, good sweet caramel and chocolate malt, sweet.
33cl bottle from a colleague. 5.0%. Dark dark brown colour lasting beige head. Malty fruity aroma. It’s kinda ok, some chocolate but mostly malty. Some fried butter. It’s not great, but not terrible. Starts ok but not sure about this melted buttery finish. odd.

(Stockholm Beer Festival 2007) Bottle. Amber color, small brownish head. Malty chocolate aroma, milky and with some tar. Chocolate flavor, grassy bitterness, milky and creamy notes. Quite mild finish. Oakes (18472) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2001
light brown colour, a dusty, sooty malt aroma and palate, which is quite dry throughout. This beer, along with a couple of other traditional examples, uses the original 'brown malt', which defined the original porter style, but disappeared until very recently.

Claimed brewer is Darwin (as "Original Flag Porter"). Dark ruby color, small off-white head. Cocoa and roasted coffee beans in the nose. Sweetish, milk stout -like, roasted coffeish flavor. Good maltyness.
330ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki) label says brewed by Geltsdale, at 4.5%brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Really caramelly aroma. Pours orangy red with a brief head. Slightly watery palate, heightened by the carbonation. Simple sweet caramelly body, hops very low. Slightly disappointing. Left with very little finish. Feels watered down. Was this brewed to 5% and then diuted? (For the Finnish market?)
Dark brown in color with an off-white head. Smells strongly of prunes and dark fruit. A light roasted malt, some milk chocolate, and a hint of toffee malt sweetness. Tastes of cardboard, prunes, and cocoa powder. Some chocolate sweetness, a fair amount of dark fruit, and some raisins. A bit watery, too.
