Bottle. Great aromas of plum and raisin - aka dark fruits. Brownish mahogany color with a beige/tan head that flattened and ringed rapidly. Full bodied with mild, very creamy carbonation. Flavor is definitely those dark fruits, and it calls to mind Old Peculier, but on roids. It’s sweet, and there’s some toasted malt and hop to balance that, but "on balance" the taste and the finish is sweet. But it is wonderful in the mouth. The fruit is just fantastic. Some chocolate notes show up in the finish. raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - FEB 16, 2008
Bottle 0.5 l. Pretty much black with a thick brown head. Roasted creamy nose. Flavor is roasted, not remarkably bitter, malts and creamy coffee with some chocolate. Quite pleasant and easy overall. begbie100 (181) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2008
Very thick and creamy light brown head. Nice contrast with total black color. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and syurup. Thick palate. I have to say that the flavor is little bit disappointing after great appearance and decent aroma. Flavor is mild with roasted malts, bitterish and metal. No noticable aftertaste. iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - DEC 5, 2007
07/12/07. Thanks to Eric (heemer77) for the sample. Black with a 1/2 finger beige head that fades to a ring. Aroma of roasted malts and sweet dark chocolatre. Flavor has some light roast, molasses, raisins, and is fairly sweet with low bitterness (two out of 10). Medium body with light carbonation. Very good baltic porter. ako (166) - Turku, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2007
Black, brown intense head. Aroma is malty, as expected. Liquorice in flavor, decent hops, bitter finish. Feels much lighter than it seems. Not nearly as good as Koff Porter, but a solid brew.

Pours brown with a nice ruby red glint to if when held up to the light. Smells of roasted malt, chcocolate, some dark fruit, hints of licorice. Tastes sweet with some figs, chocolate, some peppery splashes, some lirocice and cloves. Very solid brew! SaintMatty (7298) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2008 An excellent porter and by far and away the best beer in Saku’s portfolio in my view. The taste and aroma is very malty along with some caramel and cinnamon on the nose with a little bit of coffee. The taste is malty and very warming with coffee and a hint of plain chocolate! I just wish they produced this all year round as sometimes the supplies do not last the year! estpiwo (1319) - ESTONIA - OCT 1, 2007
