Bottle @ White Terror or Northern Alliance against the Bolsheviks, Sønderborg. Pours cloudy very dark brown with stable light tan head. Clear aroma of roast, with notes of coffee, malt and hints of vanilla. Bitter, roasty flavour with notes of smoke and malt and touches of coffee, yeast and hops. Smoky aftertaste with roasty notes. Decent. mice (1073) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Laadukas, paahteisen maltainen ja kahvinen, pehmeä kokonaisuus todellakin toimii. Stallhagenin panimo, Ahvenanmaa. SvanteL (645) - SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2016
Svart med ljusbrunt skum. Stor doft med rostade toner, mörkt bröd, mörk choklad, pomerans och aningen mörk frukt. Fyllig rund smak med mörkt bröd (ålandslimpa), mörk choklad, lite pomerans och mörka frukttoner. En mycket god porter åt det lite sötare håller, fyllig och välbalanserad, lite tjock munkänsla. dwyerpg (6462) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 30, 2016
I liked this. A nice filling beer as the wind was howling aboard the ferry. Not too sweet but almost. Nurmis (842) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2016
33cl bottle. Pours black with medium brown head, lively carbonation. Aroma has roasted malt, liquorice... some light hoppiness. Medium to heavy sweetness, really light bitterness. Overtly sweet for my liking.

Small, dense rusty-beige head over redbrown highlighted black beer. Meaty nose, meatstock, liquorice, chocolate, dark bread, molasses, iron, roast. Short sourish impression at first, smoked, mildly phenolic, with a light but present sweet underbuild. Good balance between roast/smoke/sweet. Quite spritzy, titillating MF; not very big bodied, but slick. Surprising, but quite pleasing beer from these faraway islands. bergstaden (3266) - Røros, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2015
