Bottle @ home 20140809. Pours black opaque with a dense beige head. Excellent head retention. Aroma is roasty with notes of raisins and milk (?). Nice roasty taste with lots of dark malt complexity, some dried fruits and a faint sourness. There are also hints of funk and green apples if you know to look for them. Vary nice, almost like a lighter version of what I remember Jester king black metal to be like. A bit out of balance though, the roastiness drowns everything else a bit.

Flaska från Systembolaget - kolsvart med vitt skum. Doftar inte så mycket. Smakade något syrligt, russin och vissa rostade toner. Smakar inte som någon porter jag tidigare smakat.

On tap at Ale Arsenal. Tart and light roast aroma. Black with brown highlights and brown head. Webbing down glass. Taste is moderate tart and lacto with cola aspects on back end. Finishes fairly quickly. Slight roast appeared more as it warmed.

Pyrmir (3356) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2014
330 ml bottle at the in-laws. Murky dark brown with tan head. Aroma is tangy, a bit of fruit, citric and roasted malt. Taste is strange, roasted, tart, light citric, lemon and yeast. Weird and pleasant

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Sample at Birch And Barley/Churchkey. Pours brownish-black with a medium tan head that diminishes gradually to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit and yeast. Medium-bodied with flavors of charred malt, roasted nuts, dark fruit and earthy yeast. The finish is roasted malt and mildly tart fruit. Above average overall.

Tap @ Birch & Barley. This one gets points for interesting. Dark with ample mocha head and good lacing. Smells. Funky. Hmmm... chocolate, earth, nutty, a tad dank, and a hint of pepper and floral. Taste is first a little roasty then lightly sour in a good way. Roastiness wins out on the finish. Light bodied like a porter.

Bottle from Systembolaget (40 SEK). Very good aroma of toasted malts and coffe. Taste is quite good but sour, which isn’t what you would expect based on the appearance and aroma.
