3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaske årgang 99 på "enken". Sort men med et sjovt rødligt skær når man holder den op mod de levende lys. Den har en sjov duft af nyslået græsplæne. Aner ikke hvor jeg fik det fra. Sødlig alkohol, kakaomælk og fløde. Har en tør og støvet smag og noget bitter chokolade.

bottle. dark with a thin tan head... i was expecting a little more. a little bit of a watery moutful. grapes/wine notes mixed into the smokey aroma... flavors a little bland... decent, but not my favorite that i’ve tried in this style

freakin' tasty sweet chocolatey smooth goodness that leaves a nice lingering presence in the mouth that keeps begging you to take another sip ASAP. too bad it costs 5 freakin' bucks for a 16oz bottle.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma and flavor of raisins and coffee, which is overpowered by sweetness. Lacks body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark syrupy brown color with small but lacy beige head. Aroma is roasty malty, not hoppy at all and a bit alcoholic. Flavor is roasty malty and slightly chocolatey with kind of bitter finish. Overall quite mild, though. Palate is medium-bodied, oily and very low carbonated. Pleasant Porter but is missing some character.

Nice dark brown n colour wroth thin Brown head. The smell is very yeasty. The taste is if course a porter but also very smooth. A bit too soft for my taste but still ok.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Swedish classic (fresh as a daisy bottled in 2006).
Appearance: Jet black, with a thick creamy tan head with some rusty spots which thinned out. No noticeable lacing.
Aroma: A soft fruit sweetness, a hint of vanilla and a vague suggestion of roasted coffee.
Flavour: Mild choco/coffee follows an intial burst of sweetness. Some rust and caramel raisins chucked in for good measure.
Palate: Light carbonation, ’lördag godis’ sweetness and a bitter aftertaste so light you almost miss it.
Overall: Too sweet for me, and lacking in the burnt ’n’ bitter department. Having said that it’s a decent easy-drinking version and I’m sure with a couple of years under its belt the sweetness will round out and this will improve even more (now have a few bottles in the cellar to prove this theory)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark brown, almost black. Aroma is chocolate, mild coffee, caramel and raisins. Good carbonation (not to high), light roasted, bitter finish. Very good without being to heavy.
