3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle. Black colour with small/medium brown head. Full bodied and average carbonated. Aroma is a mix of wood, alcohol and hints of roasted malts. Those malts are more evident regarding taste, with some chocolate notes and a slightly bitter aftertaste. I find it too soft for a beer like this, but it’s not bad.

Portteri kun on niin Tomille maistuu. Kahvia on pikkusen, mutta tunkkaisuus on hyvin säilynyt. Ja portterin tulee olla tunkkainen.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle. Black with a lasting good one-finger head. Aroma of soy sauce, licorice, coffee, pretty good. Flavor is huge on licorice, totally overpowering. Oh well. Still, some more complexity in flavors would be nice. Bitterness is quite strong, quite a long finish in that regard. Carbonation is pretty low, which works well with the hoppiness. But yeah, I still don’t like licorice in beer, and this one has it in volumes.

Pours black. Aroma is smoke n chocolate. Taste starts off with espresso, caramel, and some tropical fruit, Here is smoke n chocolate as well. Hoppy and bitter and sweet with full body. Good porter. And I’m not the biggest porter-fan.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours with a coffee colored creamy foam. Aroma is fruity and fresh and has apricot and dried plum. Colour is black. Palate is slippery and light. Very pleasant. Taste is elegant and has dried apricot and cocoa, some bitterness and alcohol like "burn". It’s pleasant though and adds the elegancy to the taste. This beer tastes like a tuxedo suit looks.
