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 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2006 from a bottle.
Pours rich brown with red highlights and tan head that dissipates quickly.
Mild smell, earthy and a bit of coffee.
Tastes a bit more fruity than expected. Has the usual coffee and chocolate flavor, but also a bit of apricot, hint of cherry, and some orange peel. Mildly hoppy finish.
Served at room temperature, the beer mildly tingles on the tongue and leaves a slightly sticky residue with coffee, dark chocolate, and hoppy notes.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Overall I thought this was decent but it was thinner than expected and developed a watery taste at times. The huge roasted flavor and sherry like aroma was very unique and the roasted flavor lasted forever. A nice porter, but not one I’d search for. 1998 bottle.
