50 cl bottle @ home
Rather light, hoppy and fruity aroma for a porter with some yeast and hints of coffee. Actually feels a bit like a pils with some roastiness. Flavour is fruity and hoppy too with some roasted malt and coffee. Also some berries and caramel. A bit too much CO2 on palate. Feels a bit thin for a 7% ABV beer. Decent, but I like my porters more roasty and less hoppy, fruity or sweet. This was better on draught some months ago.
50cl bottle from Alko as Stallhagen winter porter. Poured almost black with a brown lasting head. Aroma is liquirice, oatmeal and roasted malt. Flavor is oatmeal, liquirice, hint of alcohol. velvety smooth palate, ashy, bit salty finish. Quite nice baltic porter. ration (2261) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2011
Pours dark brown/black with a nice head that disappears. Aroma some caramel, chocolate, more on the latter on the taste side. Slightly sweet. Not Bad.

Pours dark ruby red colour with a large, beige foamy head. Aroma of mild toasted malts, light fruits, ashy chocolate, mild liquorice and some distant berry-like notes. Flavour of toasted malts, chocolate, mild coffee and ash. Medium bodied, a bit watery palate. Inoffensive.
Pours very dark red with a medium tan head. Aroma is roasted malts with spices. Flavor is pretty strong with roasted malts, alcohol and spices. Pretty good Christmas beer. TET (3173) - Kaarina, FINLAND - NOV 10, 2011
A colabrown beer with a almost big and light brown head. Aroma is bready and malty, roastiness, some coffee and hint of dark chocolate. Taste is malty and full, roastiness, nice sweetness and drying bitterness, but taste isn’t completely dry. Medium bodied, surprisingly light actually, nice. Quite nice, easily enjoyable and balanced porter. mikkopen (1192) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2011
500 ml bottle. Deep dark brown colour, thin brown head. Smoky, sweetish, roasted malty aroma. Flavour of mildly smoky roasted malt, coffee and dark fruits. Roasted, lingering, bitter-sweet finish. The best Stallhagen beer that I’ve tasted, very enjoyable. omhper (25563) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2011
