12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a dark brown color - it’s probably the lightest porter I’ve seen in a while. There’s a creamy one-finger head with an off-white shade. Fluffy and thick, it has decent retention and leaves behind good lacing on the glass. S: The aroma is primarily nutty and lightly roasted, with a subtle backing of piny hops. Though they’re a bit lighter than I’d like, there are chocolate and coffee notes on the nose. There’s even some brown sugar and caramel buried beneath it all. This is a surprisingly deep aroma. T: It’s opening flavor is hoppy and very typically Sierra Nevada (read: Cascade). The excellent finish helps to calm down some of the hop bitterness, supplanting it with decent notes of roasted nuts and chocolate. The robustness is balanced nicely within the sweetness, even if the portery qualities are a bit downplayed. M: This beer is almost as crisp as SNPA, with an upsurge of sweetness to help iron out any overt finishing bitterness. While the body is somewhat thin, it’s so drinkable I don’t really care. It’s well carbonated, too. O: Delicious. It’s not as rich as some porters I’ve had - rather, the easy drinking nature is what gives it its wings. This could make a reliable go-to beer when nothing else is available.

Bottle. Black color with tanned head. Aroma has roasted malt, caramel, dark bread, syrup. Taste is malty sweet with long quite sweet aftertaste. Flavors of dark malt, caramel, coffee and vanilla. Easy to drink but still very tasty.

Tuoksussa hieman paahteisuutta, suklaata ja maltaita. Maku on tasapainoinen, mutta ei toisaalta valtavan rikas. Mallasleipä maistuu ja myös hieman humala. Perushyvä porter, joka ei petä, mutta ei tuo valtavaa yllätystäkään.

LLaurin (482) - Motala, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2017
Dark brown with creamy beige head. Nose is round with cane sugar and some maltiness. Taste is bready and with malts. Accompanied by some aciduous freshness like cocoa bean. Palate is short but still good for the low ABV.

Nevalainen (770) - FINLAND - APR 14, 2017
Hazy dark brown color with beige head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, roast and chocolate. Taste is almost bitter with notes of chocolate and licorice. A bit dissapointing taste, but still quite good.
