UPDATED: DEC 7, 2005 1998 VintageRated December 2005. Black body, small creamy dark khaki head. Initial impression of the aroma is dry kitty litter, which thankfully does not return. Chocolate malted milk quality to it, with muted raisins and dark fruit. Flavour is moderatley vinuous but it dominates the whole flavour profile. Fruity flavour with a not quite sour acidity is mostly indecipherable from the vinuous nature of the beer as a whole. Second wave of prunes, figs, and date squares. Medium almost oily palate. Lots of nice underlying flavours are spoiled by off putting nature of the beer as a whole. 8/4/6/3/14<P> 1998 VintageRated July 2005. Dark black body, small milk chocolate coloured head. Aroma is malt, and muted chocolate. Similar flavour with mild roast coming into its element in the finish. Decent but not impressing me as much as I had hoped. Thinnish palate. 6/3/6/3/13

Bottle. Black with a medium sized light brown head. Aroma of dark roasted malt, chocolate and smoke. The smokiness comes out more in the flavor. Big roasted malt flavor with some chocolate and a bit of coffee.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2005
Bottle. Really quite delicious. Really chocolatey and smooth, with a dark chocolate bitterness in the finish. Smooth, thickish mouthfeel, long finish. Its funny how some of the larger crappy lager breweries come up with gems like this. I was drinking this on a hot summers night and i still could have downed a couple more, its a shame i only had one.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Black. Creamy, grayish tan head. Roasted malt, chocolate, lactose nose. Very slight hops in the nose as well. Choclate malt character up front, roasted finsh with touches of hops and dried dark fruits. Not much lactic character to the taste. Well carbonated, a little too much, actually. Very good porter.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 8, 2005
Dark brown body, high somewhat lasting tan head. Big roasty-fruity and earthy malt aromas. Easy-going roasty, coffee like flavors, some saltiness in the finish. Farily high carb, but maintans a decent mouthfeel.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2005 This is an excellen porter! At 7.2% alcohol its surprisingly smooth. So nice and roasted. Really warms your insides. Full malt and chocolate flavors coat your mouth. One of my top favorites from the Finlanders.

Sweet, roasted, smoky aroma. Poured dark as any stout with a HUGE fluffy mocha head. Burnt and bitter flavors with a good bit of wood smoke in the fore taste. Some carmelized brown sugar notes in the after taste. Very substantial mouthfeel. Towards the end of the beer the head looks like a rootbeer float. Long lasting head. Overall I detect more sweetness and smokiness than roastiness and choclate and while this is still great beer its not ever going to be a favorite.
