Hopmaestro (1275) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2015
Aroma is deep and heavy roasted malts with almost a tar sensation around it. A thick and almost syrup-like brew that builds up a delicious foam in the glass. The taste is dark and rich and a little sweet. There is a bitterness like from roasted nuts and old coffee from the pan. This is how I like my porters, it is like a blend of sweat wrung from a middle-aged barista’s shirt after a twelve hour shift at the coffeehouse and mixed with ashes from a burnt-down hazelnut tree.

Saeglopur (1695) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 3, 2015
330 ml bottle from Systembolaget Passagen, Stockholm.
Black, oily body, with a quite big, dense, creamy, dark beige to brown head.
Aroma of ash, chocolate, coffee, wood, dark and dried fruits, some pepper.
Quite sweet, rich taste wth about the same aromas, but with more melting chocolate and nuts.
Full, oily mouthfeel, with a smooth carbonation.
Finishes roasty, dry, wooden, ashy.

Very tasty! Strong but smooth at the same time, with a great balance between sweet chocolate, subtle dark fruits and dry, ashy notes. Also pretty easy to drink for this style, the ABV is completely hidden. One of the very best Scandinavian beers I’ve had lately!

Clownoisseur (421) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle thanks to _angst_, thanks Alex! Pours a near-black, fairly opaque, a nice two finger brown head settles into nice spotty lacing. Nose is interesting. Black olives, earth, roasted almonds, some spice and a lingering alcohol. Taste is much more relaxed than the nose, but still rich. Earth, anise, coffee, cocoa powder, black olives and some bittering earthy hops. Finishes on the drier side, but has a nice lingering coffee/anise that helps push the olives away. Adventurous porter! Drinks a little closer to a stout.

neongolden (1226) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
(330ml bottle from Systembolaget) Pours Black with a small dense tan head that recedes slowly, with lace. Aroma of dried fruits (prune, date, etc), sweet lightly roasted coffee, coffee bean, chocolate malts, almost a peppery smoke. In the mouth, more dried fruits, caramel, dark and chocolate malt make a sweet initial flavour along with some moderate coffee. Some roast joins in the middle, not too strong but enough to dry a bit and complement the caramel/fruit. Finish is dry and lightly bitter from the roast with a smoky, faintly peppery quality and a bit of coffee bean. Medium bodied and kinda creamy with lightish carb. A dry but fruity imperial porter that is well balanced, complex, and not overly roasted for style or enjoyability. Good one from Lervig and All-In!
