33 cl bottle into an Ommegang chalice. freshness date seems to be not marked at all. I don't think I've ever had Finnish beer before.
a- Pours a little thick, a completely opaque and very appetizing dark chocolate brown. Very minimal dark tan head. I couldn't help but hold it up to the light and there is absolutely nothing coming through. Except for the lack of head, this beer looks awesome.
s- Wow, this smells great! Dark chocolate cherries, prunes, smoke, roasted coffee, wood, and a yeasty, very faintly spicy undertone.
t/m- Now THIS is a porter. A medium-bodied beer with roasted coffee on the tip of the tongue, dark chocolate, brown sugar, raisins and lightly sour cherries. An overall feeling of charred oak/ wood smoke is present throughout. Settles down eventually to leave a slightly sweet coffee, smoke, and a lingering dark whole grainy taste. The carbonation is fairly light, not doing a lot for this wonderfully rich flavor, unfortunately.
d- this thing is definitely a treat. A very bold and deeply complex flavor and an aroma like heaven. I would happily drink two or three of these without getting remotely bored of this taste. Definitely a full, four-dimensional porter worth exploring.

Poured into porter glass. It is very dark black with a caramel-colored head. Didn't leave much lace as I drank it. Aroma was roasted (burnt) coffee and a mild sweetness. My wife and I couldn't call the sweetness out by name until the next morning. I took a whiff of the warm remnants left in the glass and immediately picked up on raisins or prunes. Taste had average porter bitterness. Viscosity was above average and higher alcohol was apparent. Decent aftertaste. I think I actually served it too cold at first (maybe 40 deg or so). As it warmed, I really enjoyed it more.
