3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark brown with a medium cream colored head. Aroma is roasty, some coffee and bitter chocolate. Bitter roast flavors, light coffee, light anise, hints of dark fruits perhaps, but just hints. There is an acidity in the finish that lends a nice drinkability in this is a pretty straightforward porter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a black color porter with a nice brown medium head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light black chocolate and some light notes of roasted malt are pleasant though more tame then I had expected considering the brewer. Taste is a mix between some light roasted malt notes with light dry black chocolate notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. This was an OK offering but would have liked a bit more complexity.

Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Near black, small head. Raisiny nose. Dryish with clean, hard mouthfeel. Extremely hard and sharp. Salty and fruity with aluminium and green apples. Primitive, harsh and shallow. What I would expect Bud Light Porter to taste like.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Utobeeer. Pours opaque black with very big foam off white head, which stays well. Nose is alcoholic engine oil, roasted barley malt, raspberry off the hops and chocolate underneath that. Good array of aromas competing with each other. Taste is very nice. Getting the chocoalte and coffee, but also the citrous, raspberry and ale fruit off the hops. Near perfect balance of interesting flavours, which mixes ale character with choc and coffee stout character. Has a sort of lactic creaminess on the finish too.
