The over powering aspect of this beer is sweetness, both in smell and taste. There is also a bit of depth in there as well though. I couldn't drink too much, but I like it. Kita (2175) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 11, 2013
Bottled, 0.50l, courtesy of CanCrusher. Clear dark brown color with medium creamy brownish head and tiny lively bubbles. Aroma of grassy hops, chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, mild coffee and hints of medicines. Taste starts with sweet caramel and chocolate, molasses and liquorice, then followed by slight sour grassy and fruity undertones. Mouthfeel is a bit spicy, while aftertaste is pleasant moderate bitter. Full body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Excellent farewell to winter... hens (747) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - NOV 11, 2012
0.5l bottle. Nice sweet aroma, like a vanilla-caramel. Taste is soft and bit sweet, little chemical taste. Vanilla flavor is dominated. A little more and taste is like strong porter must be with little caramel. After taste is a medium bitter with medium "pluss" vanilla and passion fruit. Very nice body. Good winter beer. mauritsio (949) - FINLAND - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle 2012 from ollepood Tartu. Black with tall head. Rich cocoa aroma. Sweet and bitterish taste. Full tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ledhenrik (2) - ESTONIA - DEC 28, 2012 does not count
The only problem is the top.. it does not last.. and that’s a big prolem. Imo it’s lack of knowledge how to bottle a great beer. But the taste is absolutely the best among Estonian christmas porters. All in all its a great beer.

Festive White Chocolate Porter, 50cl bottle from the Estonian gluhwein stand in the Lunenburg Weihnachsmarkt... Pours a dark black-brown with a fast-settling beige head and aromas of chocolate, toffee and maybe just a little nutmeg or cinnamon. Initially chocolate and little coffee on the palate, then burnt caramel and roast malt coming in, along with a treacle-toffeeish sweetness more reminiscent of a Doppelbock. The finish is more dry-sweet, as the burnt edge of the treacle is boosted by a light hoppy bitterness. CanCrusher (1084) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle. Very dark ruby colour with a finger of creamy light brown head. Sweet chocolate (or let’s say cacao) is dominant aroma, but there are also notes of brown sugar, caramel, honey and some dark fruits like plums and cherries. Oily texture is sweet at the start, but than turns into moderate bitter. Real winter warmer, goes fine with some chocolate dessert. estpiwo (1319) - ESTONIA - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown color, creamy head. Milk chocolate tones in taste, oily, sweet, little bit roasted malts. Finish was light bitter and smoky. Good. armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 26, 2012
0,5 l bottle as a gift.visionthing (5413) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 7, 2013
Deep ruby colored one with a small creamy off white-tan head. Aroma of molasses, malt and caramel, light herbal hops. Medium bodied porter with caramel and molasses again, light roasted character, some metallic taste, lurking herbal hops in the finish. Roasted bittersweet finish.
50cl bottle (2012) from Stockmann, Tallinn last year. Pours dark mahogany with a beige head. Strong aroma of chocolate, seems slightly artificial, but not too far over the top. Malty and chocolaty, some roasty notes, hints of licorice and dark fruits. Sweet with a dominating chocolate flavour and a mild bitterness. Medium body with a fairly average carbonation. A bit too much chocolate for my taste, but still quite nice.
