(Draught at Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm, 15 May 2015) Black colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of coffee, dark chocolate and a touch of citrus. Malty, roasted taste with coffee, dark chocolate, dark bread, dark fruit and a certain coffee bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Solid and very well balanced porter. Very nice.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Uba ja Humal. Packaged 06/17/14. Pours brown with a moderate light beige coloured head. The aroma seems at first not present. Then after it’s warmed some, I get a pretty off-putting milky tone supplemented by faint roasted malts, chocolate and sourness reminiscent of cold coffee and ’raw’ black bread (yeasty? doughy?). Tastes roasty and sour, milky, chocolaty, kinda piquant and quite bitter. Quite nice and smooth on the palate, with very mellow carbonation and a nice tight body. Overall... nearly a disappointment though.

Bottle. Dark brown in color with a tan head. Notes of dark chocolate, some sweeter notes as in cocoa powder, later on some smokey vibes as well in aroma. Roasted coffee and notes of milk chocolate in taste. Dry and slightly bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (Koht). Very dark brown color. Small size, brown head, stays. Chocolate, malts, roast, bit of dirty cloth in aroma. Not much aroma. Roasted malts, chocolate, milky taste. Smooth mothfeel. Soft carbonation. Long lasting chocolate malts in aftertaste. I think too much yeast was poured to glass and it makes beer bit duller than it should (only meself to blame). But still nice.

On tap at Nakameguro Taproom. Served in a stemmed tulip. Jet black with a modest tan head. Huge chocolate and roasted coffee bouquet on the nose. Bitter roasted coffee with milk chocolate taste becoming more prevalent as the beer comes to room temperature. Nice hints of cacao, licorice and prune also present. Creamy mouthfeel and nice well-balanced finish.
