3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Doftar rostat kaffe och jag tycker mig antyda apelsinkärnor (!). Brygden smeker gommen...Slutsats: En välgjord porter

Tap. Opaque black coffee, fine light tan head. Chocolate nose. Full but not heavy on the mouth, lots of chocolate fading to a suggestion of prunes and cocoa and other flashes of flavors I can’t quite define, finishing with more dry chocolate and just a touch of bitterness. Fantastic porter!

From bottle. Pours a black hur with a flat - very little head. Flavor is outstanding with coffee, caramel, and hints of vanilla. Biggest shortfall is a real lack of carbonation.

I poured this from a 2001 batch. Whispers of vanilla coffee and malted milkshake drift up from a creamy beige top. Solid black, I cannot see through this sea of brown ink. A deep roasted nugget with a brief appearance of bitter. This is a very smooth porter. It almost reminds me of a slightly hopped up Schwarzbier. Nice, this is candy bar nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Stong aroma with leather, dried dark fruits and a hint of gunpowder. The taste is a bit short and hollow. Finishes on the sweet side with moderate bitterness. A good porter, but a bit too sweet for me.

Nice black colour with a tan head 1,5 fingers high. Aroma of roasted malt and a chocolatey/coffee hint. Taste of roasted malt, dark chocolate. Sticky carbonation. Nice beer.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2001 version. Pours black with a brown fluffy head that quickly disappates into an espresso like appearance. Nice flavors with coffee, smoke, toffee, licorice and roasted grain flavors prevalent. Strong bitterness up front, which quickly gives way to a nicely balance smooth and semi sweet finish. Slightly heavier than medium body. Yet another great porter almost as good as Anchor (not as sweet), Fullers (not as flavorful), and Sam Smiths Taddy Porter. This is definitely becoming one of my favorite styles.

What a different porter! A little lighter in color than I expected and the flavor-coffee-coffee-coffee!A great beer for breakfast.Not really full and rich but very flavorful. Worth a try.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a dark brown with ruby highlights (clear when backlit). Thin tan head that was short lived. Aroma of roasted malt, coffe, and chocolate. Flavor of sweet malt, coffee, light chocolate, bread, and roastiness. A touch of vanilla, almond, and butterscotch combine to give a creamy, nuttiness in the backend. Light acicidity, moderate bitterness. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Full flavor, but the palate was a little thin considering all the flavor.
