Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2014
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours deep brown with a creamy beige head. The aroma is quite dynamic, with predominating roasted malts, some baking cocoa, lightly tangy dark fruits, some milk chocolate. Medium sweet flavor with nice, velvety chocolate character, some bitter burnt wood and earth, charcoal, raisins and burnt toffee. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Robust roasted malt finish with some edgy baking cocoa, charred bread, hard water minerality and leathery fruits. Well balanced with nice complexity. Another winning dark beer from BBNo.

Keg at the brewery, 29/03/14. Black with a good sized tan head that retains well. Nose is roast malt, earthy cocoa, dark toffee, dark malts, charring effect. Taste comprises chocolate, light roast, dark toffee fudge, dark berry fruits, hoppy backnotes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying finale. Solid easy drinking porter.

The taste is rich, roasty, toast, earth, dark chocolate, decent bitterness, coffee, mild acidity and peppery with a dry, roasty finish. Medium+ body and fine carbonation. Rich and flavoursome. Very nice.

Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2014
(Draught at the brewery, 12 Apr 2014) Black colour with lasting, creamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with coffee, chocolate, cacao and toasty malt. Malty, roasted taste with notes of chocolate, coffee, cacao, a touch of vanilla and a generous coffee bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of milky sweetness. Well made and very tasty, exceptionally well balanced. My first from this brewery, but hopefully not the last. Lovely porter.

olio (5897) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 25, 2014
33 cl bottle
Dark brown pour, medium sized beige head. Oaty and malty aroma, some faint chocolate notes with mild wooden hints. Chocolaty malts and rye on the flavor, subtle caramel and dried fruits. Fairly easy to drink, a bit watery feel to it though.

330ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with late awakening, small, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Chocolately dark malty aroma, hints of cocoa, milk chocolate, coffee, which somehow can’t deny their grainy origin.
