09.01.13. Bottle. Average size, brown foam. The beer is black. Aroma is a bit sweet, some smoke and malt. Taste is some bitterness and some roasted coffee. Surprisingly high carbonation, too much for me. Aftertaste is watery (a bit), some bitterness.
For some reason I had a positive memory of this one. Certainly great for a Finnish mass-produced beer. However, it lacks the depth to compete with porters I have had. Great value for the Finnish market.
33 cl bottle. Scents of coffee and brown bread. Pours dark opaque brown with a thin tan head. No lacing. Sweet tastes of coffee and licorice. Very mild carbonation. Nice tart finish. Solid porter. Fressi (7) - - JUL 20, 2017 does not count

330ml bottle from a bottleswap with rosenbergh, thanks a lot!MrTipple (5342) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2017
Malty and coffee aroma with a bit of red fruit scents. Taste is a bit sweet and fruity with cherry dominance in a coffee thick porter.
Dark chocolate, most pralines, Ovaltine, toasted dark malts, light coffee, dark roast. Black, medium, creamy, beige head. Light bitter. More chocolate, cacao, filter coffee, dark roasted malts, lightly charred, soft carbonation, full bodied. Nice Baltic Porter, rich and intense, yet well-balanced, happy to see a macro doing one beer right. Bottle at Finnair Premium Lounge, Helsinki. ehaak26 (570) - - JUN 16, 2017

GIJOE (1220) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 27, 2017
Bottle from Beers of the World in Rochester, NY. Pours black like used motor oil, completely opaque, huge light brown head that stays long; sparse lacing. Nose is roasted malt and chocolate with yeast and nut notes; a hint of ash. Taste is quite well balanced with sweet maltiness and nice dark chocolate bitterness. Medium bodied brew with a rich, creamy mouthfeel. Excellent porter. Maits (509) - ESTONIA - MAY 26, 2017
Black beer with thick brown head stays. Aroma is firstly chocolate, then comes fruits, bread and little hops. Taste is balanced with medium sweet and bitter. Nice mild hoppy finish. Medium body. Nice and pleasure to drink this one. BeerRenter76 (1019) - Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2017
Originally rated on 1/14/2009. Black body with a thick dark tan cap that left plenty of lace. Aromas and flavors of licorice, dark fruit, toasted malts and a little coffee. I deducted a little because there was a very slight metallic presence. Overall it was a pretty good porter, that i wouldnt mind trying again fombe89 (3540) - Asturias, SPAIN - MAY 5, 2017

This is the standard for a porter: it’s sturdy black colour, the smell of roasted malt and the rich mouth filling taste of chocolate, a hint of coffee and the roasted malt... simply put, this is the best porter, if not beer, in the world that all other porters are (or should be!) compared to.
