Almost black with a medium, big foamy head. A strong Burnt chocolate aroma with some roasted malt and hints of licorice. Roasted, lightly burned flavor with hints of licorice and coffee. Light to medium body, hardly any carbonation. Ok Porter, kinda thin, 1 dimensional. Another site says it’s retired? mybrainhurts (400) - North Dakota, USA - APR 19, 2006
Pours a very nice deep brown with a thin, milk chocolate colored head. Aroma is roasted coffee and chocolate malted milk balls. Tastes a bit smoked, with milk chocolate, and strong brewed coffee. Nice full mouthfeel and ends a tad bitter. I really like this one. A good find! Goblincat (399) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - DEC 14, 2004
vintage 1996. Pours black with a thin tan head. Chocolate malt and coffee nose. Very smooth chocolate and coffee taste. I’m impressed with this offering.

Dark, thin head. I can't really taste any chocolate or coffee. Enjoyable, but not amazing. temporrari (398) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 13, 2007
I’m not sure exactly why this is called Koff Porter. Koff does not appear on the label at all, but not all things are meant to be understood. What I do understand is that this brew is a fine beverage. Pours dark and thick. Big, creamy, dark brown head that refuses to relent. Aroma of dark fruits and licorice, and the flavor more or less follows suit. Definitely some roast in there, bit of chocolate. Great long finish, creamy body, carbonation is perfect, just an all around delight to consume.

330ml bottle at rating session in Tromsø 27.Oct.2009. Creamy head. Black body and light brown head. Chocolate, prune and vanilla aroma. Creamy, with taste of bitter chocolate and roasted pine nuts, coffee and tar. A bit metallic finish. Thanks to Rune for sharing! GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 11, 2006
Bottle. Molasses, dark brown coloring. No head, save for an enticing brownish bubble ring around the glass. Chocolate, malty, almost fudge-like to the tongue offset by carbonation. Quick finish. Quite pleasurable for a porter. Gbgbrouge (388) - SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2014
Poured from bottle, dark dark brown with medium creamy brown/grey head. Aroma is strong and inviting, notes of chocolate, dark bread, dried fruit and syrup. Taste is bittersweet with a nice body and a long lasting sweet and bitter taste. Very nice! NJJereme (387) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark coffee color with a medium sized dark tan head. Has the aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and cherries. Flavor follows in that respective order, with the fruit flavor on the finish. Pretty heavily bodied. Coffee flavor predominant in the aftertaste. A good selection.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 The bottle I had was bought at Topper’s in Helana Montana and it said Sinebrychoff. On a style I claim to know almost nothing about this was outstanding. Page 430 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 249 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.
