Smell of smoke and whisky, some chocolate also. Very dark brown colour, tiny light brown head. A myriad of aromas: chocolate, coffee, licorice, whisky, smoke, alcohol, ashes, roasted malt. Oily texture, very flat carbon, almost nonexistent. Very sweet, somewhat bitter. Definitely one of the finest domestics so far. Karol (911) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 8, 2013
Bottled. One word: delicious! Dark chocolate but a dominant coffee aroma and taste. I like that. Alcohol present, but not disturbing. alkoholocaust (37) - HELSINKI, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2013
500ml bottle. Black, with medium beige head. Coffee, chocolate, vanilla and light roasty aroma. Taste is dried fruits, syrup, cacao and hint of bourbon. Medium and oily body, with average carb. Long bitter finish. TET (2991) - Kaarina, FINLAND - FEB 9, 2013
A colablack beer with a medium, thick and beige head. Aroma is mix of roastiness, chocolate, nice sweetness and some whiskeybarrel. Very enjoyable aroma. Taste is quite dry, roastiness, black coffee, some strenght from whiskey, dry woods and herbal bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth and low carbonation, pleasant to drink. The great beer, balanced, complex, just enjoy. Gurthnar (5816) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle shared by Cuso, thanks! Aroma fruity, coffee, roasted, strong. Colour very dark brown. Taste is very balanced, full body, chewy mouthfeel. Roasted and coffee, light fruity, berries. Finish long, roasty coffee, very drinkable. Alcohol not exactly hidden, but never mind. Excellent.

500ml bottle from AlkoErasmus_ro (2905) - Alabama, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Pours pitch black with a small white head. Aroma of roasted malts, rye, hints of bourbon, vanilla, wood and dark caramely notes. Taste is roasty, mildly grainy and sweetish with hints of rye, wood, vanilla, oak and bourbon. A bit thin bodied, though. Finish is roasty with some sweetish rye and oaky bourbon notes, hints of grains, vanilla and chocolate. Nice, well balanced and tasty, but a bit light bodied porter.
Bottle. Pours black with a medium, dark latte head. Aroma is vanilla, roast, salty liquorice oak. Rather sweet with treacle and liquorice. Taste doesn’t really match what I expected - Not much in the way of vanilla. Salty liquorice and roast in the beginning. Some coffee and slight, dark chocolate. A bit of wood and flower from the hops on the finish. Oak as well as the vanilla finally making an appearance. Palate is full. hoorayh (15) - - FEB 27, 2013
tymäkkä muttei liian portermaisen paahteinen, omaan suuhuni sopiva ja mahtuva. sixx more letters Turboninja (710) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 20, 2013
Aroma is well balanced with the taste: lightly roasted malts with a considerable amount of other flavors like licorice, coffee and vanilla. Appearance dark brown with light brown, middle height head. Taste very well balanced and organic with wide taste spectrum. Flavors as mentioned above. Especially roasted flavors are not too dominant: a big plus from that. Otherwise very textbook-like porter with no own nuances/specialties. Palate could be a bit thicker. Adequate carbonation. kalervo (1041) - FINLAND - NOV 21, 2013
Really good Finnish porter, roasted malts, well balanced hops and nice unique spicy hint apparently from the oak.
