2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very little on the nose. No roasted notes, very little nuttiness. Slight astringency.
Jet black pour, mocha head that stays for a minute before forming into a ring.
Solid sweetness mixes with a nuanced nuttiness. Almost no roasted porter flavor.
Nothing noticeable from the palate, but nothing that detracts.
Overall, not a bad beer. Worth drinking again for $3.99/bomber, but nothing I’d seek out.
Vintage dated so I’ll try it again in a year or so.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wish list item bottled in October. Nothin wrong with it but not nearly as good as I’d hoped. A decent chocolaty roasted porter with an additional unidentifiable sweetness that I can also guess was pecan. Didn’t leave much of an impression."

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Luktar lite vanilj och brända nöt toner. Smakar bra. Tydligt nötsmak med lagom sötma. På det hela taget en bra öl.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
