3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brune foncée presque noire, mousse beige émoustillante. Âromes de malt torréfié, café, cacao et un peu fumé. Un corps bien affirmé, belle rondeur sans verser dans trop le sucré malgré les arômes maltés, caramélisés, mélassés. Texture soyeuse fort agréable, seulement dérangée par la carbonation tout a fait adéquate. Finale longue et enveloppante, sans amertume. Excellent porter, mérite d’être re-bu encore!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated 2014. My 2,900th review but it is listed as a Baltic Porter. Darn. I also wanted to hit my 100th Porter with my 2,900th review! But back to the beer. Dark brown to near black pour with modest tan head. Aroma of dark sweet roasted malts, caramel, and earthy hops that are low profile. Medium to better than medium creamy body. The taste is incredibly sweet, dark, and roasty. Mild bitterness to finish. Hurrah for Swedish Porters!
