4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a dark brown color with two fingers of a cream colored head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a great level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a sweeter molasses and caramel smell along with some other nice roasty notes. Along with these smells comes some darker fruit aromas of prune and plum as well as some other aromas of chocolate and a little bit of a grainy smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a smooth and sweet taste with lots of caramel and chocolate mixed with a little bit of a dark fruit flavors of plum and prune. Other notes of a roasted malt taste are also present upfront, creating a nice smooth base flavor for the brew. As the taste advances the fruit fades a little bit all while more and more caramel and chocolate as well as some molasses comes to the tongue. With a hint of vanilla and a tiny bit of an herbal flavor coming at the very end, one is left with a sweet and smooth, roasty flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. For the porter style and the darker but sweet flavors of the brew, the feel is rather nice and makes for a flavorful, but easy drinking porter overall.
Overall – This is a very nice easy drinking porter at of only 5.5 %. A quite tasty brew overall and one to try if you have the opportunity.

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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!
