4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at BrewDog Bar, Stockholm. Perfectly black with dense beige head. Rich aroma of molasses and coffee. Sweet and dull bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Heavily roasty with coffee and hazelnuts side by side with pruned and madeira. Spicy, resiny hops comes through in an immensely bitter finish. Has components from aged Baltic porters that I really like, combined with massive bitter hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at PåBesök, Malmö
Black color with creamy brownish head. Nice aroma of roasted malts, cardboard, light coffee, bread. Full bodied, smooth, with strong roasted malt flavor, some dark chocolate, light liquorice, strong bitterness.
A bit more Imperial Stout than Porter, and too roasty for me, but good anyway.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Haandfest 2013. Looks amazing in the glass. A big frothy dark brown head on top on a deep dark black body. Looks OK indeed. The nose has some pretty clear chocolate tones. It’s roasted d dark, but not extreme in anyway way. Also I get a trace if both vanilla an milky ice cream. A bit off cold coffee as well. Not bad. Lovely flavors. A good thick oily mouthfeel with a adage prickling carbonation level. Lovely stuff. Lots if dark flavors. Feels fresh an exciting. Dark baking chocolate and chocolate ice cream. It’s really well roasted this. Almost so much that I can sense a soft acidic hint in the aftertaste. Lots if hotplate chocolate in the finish, even a little bit of vanilla. Loaded with goodies! 25.05.2013
