Draught @ the brewpub. Rated on 21.07.2012olio (10464) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2012
Aroma has some dark chocolate and cocoa. Flavour is roasted with dark chocolate and hints of licorice. Rather good porter, reminds me of Sinebrychoff Porter, which is more roasted though.

Pours deep dark red color with small head. Aroma of ash dry chocolate, dark toasted malts, hints of fruits and cocoa. Flavour of dry chocolate, dark dried fruits, cocoa, faint notes of coffee, vanilla and some caramel. Very smooth chcolsty palate with a very dry malty finish. Yet again a very balanced brew.
Tap at brewpub- june 2012-pours deep brown with a soapy tan head and good lacing. nose is chocolate nuts and lite roasted malt character. bitter baking chocolate on the flavors wit ha very dry finish from a good dose of hops. lite husky note however very clean. That finish is long and very good. not an overly complex porter yet very tasty. not much to say about this one other than its pretty solid. would like to try again. saxo (19270) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2012

On tap at RR. Pour was a dark cola with a nice creamy head that lingered, even leaving some lacing. Great retention. Lots of roasted malts and dark fruit with a light coffee. Very dry, lots of roasted flavor with a very light smokiness. No real hop flavors stood out. This was all roasted flavors. Light coffee hidden through out. Light body, a bit thin, very porter like. Nice mild carbonation. This struck me more as a stout and not a porter. I was expecting a sweetness but this lacked that. It was ok, I doubt I try it any time soon.

Smooth chocolate and roast flavors, mellow coffee, toffee, pleasant background sweetness, excellent balance. Medium body and carbonation, silky mouthfeel, excellent. Fantastic brew.

At the brewpub on draught, from notes. Pours is dark brown and has little tan head. Aromas are chocolate and smokiness. Tastes are chocolate, smoke, and roasted malt. Body is medium with a long bittersweet chocolate finish. Overall, a great porter.
