3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Opaque black/brown with a solid beige head cover, sheets of lace. Taste is roasted malt that turns toward bitter in the swallow, returning to a semi-sweet in a lingering finish. True to it’s dark malt, a solid, smooth, great drinking brew. Recommended.

Årgång 2014. Flaska från Systembolaget. Väldigt mörk öl, nästan svart med en beige krona. Lätt söt öl med inslag av kaffe, nötter, karamell, rostad malt. Smakar mer än den doftar. En bra standard Porter helt enkelt.

Believe this to be the same beer, label slightly different, "klassIII", 2013. Not quite opaque brown, cream head fades. Aroma lager, toasty, raisin. Taste nutty, raisin, rootbeer, brewed coffee. Slightly sweet in the middle. Palate about right, that is, not thin, but not imperial thick either. Carbonation soft and fine. This is excellent. Putting the taste back in lager!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2010 vintage. Pours a clear dark amber with a rich dark ruby cast. Excellent head volume, lacing and retention. Complex nose of dark fruit (fig, plum), molasses and caramel over notes of chocolate and a hint of coffee. Light medium body with a bit of creaminess over a smooth texture. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish. The World Class flavor profile is reasonably intense, quite complex and masterfully balanced. It begins with a caramel sweet rush that soon flows into the dark fruits. In the middle, molasses comes to the forefront and fades into a mild roast and hop bitterness. As it approaches the finish, chocolate sweetness is evident and oak notes (oxidative aging) are present as is a subtle smokiness. The finish is a slow fade of sweetness into a mild hop bitterness with just a hint of dryness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aug ’14. A 0.33l, 2014. bottle from Systembolaget, Upplands Väsby. It poured very dark brown body with small light brown head. Coffee and some sweet dark malt aroma, especially cocoa, chocolate pudding and caramel. Flavor was sweet, really fine, dominated not by so much coffee as in nose, but chocolate and cocoa now. Herbal hop bitterness was finely blended in. Not so full in body, thinner despite being really tasty. Long coffee-cappuccino-chocolate finish. I knew it’s a Swedish classic, but didn’t expect it to be so good!
