Draught at Olympen, happy eating and drinking with my nephews. Opaque, near-black body, tiny beige head to the rim of the glass. Prominent aroma of peaty malts, ashy dry. Chocolate malts underscored by a peaty backbone. Dry rounded on the swallow. Harmonious and far from heavy to drink (Oslo, 26.09.2011). laiti (8505) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2011
Draught @ Gastropub Nordicration (2253) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2011
Aroma has lots of liquorice and some smoke. Flavour has very much liquorice, which is slightly salty. Some smoke, chocolate and hints of ash too. One of the best baltic porters I’ve had. At the end of the glass the salt becomes too dominant though.
Tap. Pours dark chocolate brown with a thixk thin head. Almost black in the glass. Smoky chocolate aroma. Same in the taste. Not Bad. lusikka (7819) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2011

Dark brown color, almost black; generous head. Nice smoked aroma, burnt wood, cream. Good body strength, and smooth mouthfeel; caramel flavor, chocolate, light liquorice and smoke; correct bitterness; a bit less interesting at the end, but indeed quite good.
