A little suprised about all of the high ratings of this beer. I thought it very average and uncomplex for a Eastern porter. One word that epitomizes this brew is "chewy", it's almost like biting into a piece of toffee. Some nice roasted caramel tones. But not overly impressive.

7/31/04. Poured out of 330 mL bottle, bought at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA 7/24/04. Pours an opaque black with hints of brown. Fluffy, dense head like an ice cream float, light brown in color. Very nice. Lacing is a bit blotchy but respectable. Nose is lightly sour woody, lots of berries, and a hint of molasses and vanilla extract. Only faint roastiness. Flavor reveals again the bright woody bite but foregrounds the roastiness a little bit more. Also some shades of the acidic dark berry. And then there's a strange flavor that I can only equate (and only approximately) to the sudsy head of a root beer float (but not the rest of the float). Weird. Finish is not as complex as Id hope. Some dark caramel and creamy malts creep in, but otherwise the flavor kind of falls off rather quickly. Medium body with a little too much carbonation and kind of a broken-down feeling in the mouth. Its very drinkable, but not quite as rewarding as Id hoped.

Courtesy of bditty187. Pours a jet black that allows no light to seep through, with a thick two finger tan head that leaves behind a thick webbing of lace. Smell; rich chocolate and coffee notes, with some roasted, almost smokey malts. Theres some dark fruits along with some hints of licorice. Taste; the coffee and dark fruits really come out on the first few sips, along with a bit of licorice. Theres a strong roasted maltiness, with some touches of wood and a little alcohol. The chocolate character starts to come through as this gets warmer. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, and so drinkable I wish I had several more.

What I found in Finland and the Baltics, was that when it came to "old" style beers (pre-craft beer revolution), the lagers were quite dreadful, while the "under appreciated" porters (Baltic) were really good, of fine quality and style. This one was roasty with a good hop profiel, nice ashy afternotes and unfiltered as well. A good 7.2 made it a top notch Porter in my opinion.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 Bottle 1996: Pitch black body with thick dark brown head. Strong aromas of prune, raison, slight touches of roasted malts, black licorice and fruit sugars. Smooth coffe flavor with the prunes presenting themselves in the back corners of the mouth. Finishes with strong hops. Little to no carbonation.

Medium dark brown foam. The darkest foam I have seen so far on a stout. Deep deep dark brown color that you cannot see through. Malty aroma. Malty sweet taste first on the palate that turns bitter in the appropriate place and rolls into that nicely. The finish is bitter and lasting but not overwhelming. Very nice.

goz (358) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 24, 2003
Pours an almost opaque dark brown, with a slight garnet tinge to it. Head is medium in size, dark tan in color, leaves good lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel, light dough, and mild chocolate. Flavor is roasted malts, coffee, bitter chocolate. Body is medium, medium carbonation, and goes down quite smooth.

extremely dark in color. The aroma is very complex, vanilla, caramel come through. The palate is a bit light for my taste, however the complexity of the dark malt is really wonderfull.

A very nice chocolatey full-bodied porter, perfect for chilly winter evenings. Good balance of the ingredients. Pleasant lingering palate.
