3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle purchased at One Stop Market. Dark black with thin white head. Aroma is vanilla bean strong with light coffee hints. Nice.
Flavor is coffee first followed by a nice roasted malt character. The vanilla bean lingers well after the sip. Medium body with a bitter / dry texture. Chocolate milk that lingers in the body.Solid but I guess this bottle has a bit of age on it because the coffee bean is starting to get bitter and acidic.

Bottle from systembolaget. Smell is smokey with a high tone of espresso coffee. Pours dark brown with a rich brown head. Taste is rich in flavour. Coffe, dark chocolates and some raisins. Palate is a bit thin compared to an otherwise complex and rich beer. Overall a good beer and a respectful porter.

Bottle. Pours black with a brown head! Aroma of raw roasted coffee beans and sick raw bourbon vanilla right on yo face! Also some dark dried fruits, roasted malts, a woody and almost sawdusty feel to it along with some cocoa beans and smooth oatmeal. Taste is sweet and bitter with lots of roasted notes, vanilla, coffee, dark bitter chocolate and smooth oatmeal. Very very balanced and stunning porter!

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a big, brown frothy head. Aroma is huge vanilla, coffee, strong roast, Sweet berries, and almost some banana. Vanilla ice cream and some wood. Taste is really nice and well balanced! Dry chocolate, vanilla, slightly oatmealish, which rounds the sharp roast off in a great way. Dry coffee in the back. Very exclusive and well balanced.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is coffee, and lots of it, plenty of chocolate, vanilla, a bit of roasted malt, and some sugars. Taste is sweet, with plenty of vanilla and minimal bitterness. Lots of chocolate throughout. Alcohol is characteristically well covered by the flavor. Body is not all that heavy. Easy drinking for its size. Dangerous.
