Incredibly good smell of chocolate and coffee. Lovely coffee flavor is what strikes me. Wonderful bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Truly a easy porter to drink. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Luktar lite vanilj och brända nöt toner. Smakar bra. Tydligt nötsmak med lagom sötma. På det hela taget en bra öl.

Good with a twist. Roasted malt and wood or earthy aroma. Dark brown and murky. Lighter than expected palate. Smooth with good carbonation. Standard roasted flavors of a Porter but deeper and more dry. A hint of wood and earth touched by pecan, which I found more subtle. Enjoyed it.

Pours black with thick, tall tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, light vanilla and maybe hints of pecan, nuts of some sort at least. Taste is dry, chocolate and vanilla before a roasty coffee finish. Fairly light but creamy and smooth body with soft carbonation.
