UPDATED: APR 10, 2010 12-oz bottle. Toasty aroma with some hints of prune and bread. Dark brown color with reddish cast. Stiff brown head with legs. Bitter and mildly sweet at first. Roasted to the point of ashiness. Sour cherry and apple notes. Bitterness mellows and then deepens on the finish. Pretty clean however. Medium to light body with some astringence on the front. High drinkability. Changed my opinion about this beer after several bottles. It grows on you but it is still just slightly above average.

Bottle. Cloudy deep brown. Beige head. Aroma & taste: caramel, treacle, dried fruit. Light to medium body. Light sweet. Strange for an American Porter. Something must be wrong with the bottle.

kustie (1192) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2017
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.

Dervock (1347) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2017
Bottle - pours brown with a lacy beige head. Aroma is chocolate, nuts and roast malt. Taste is roast malt and chocolate with a building sweetness into the finish.

LLaurin (483) - 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.
