Svesse (6080) - 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.
