3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: complex, funky malts. Tones of coffee, liquorice, fortified wine, sweet pears, tulips, sugar, red currant sourishness, nougat.
Flavour: sourish bitterness followed by elegant sweetness. Heavily malty and cocoa-like. The sourish bitterness is longlasting and very satifying. This is what a porter should taste like – easily distinguishable from a stout. The hops are there, and though they are perhaps fresher and more citrusy than what is usual for a scandinavian porter, they sit nicely in the bakground and let the malt dominate. One of the best malt profiles I’ve come across so far. Liquorice? Sure, but not as much as cocoa, coffee and roasted bitterness.
Appearance: very dark brown, towards black body. Warm beige-coloured foam formed by bubbles rather than froth, also a thin film remains on the surface. It looks like a great many good american impies, albeit paler.
Palate: thin but somehow grainy, acidic. Yet... fluffy. Very interesting. Moderate/low carbonation.

This brew is a dark brown-black with a medium thin tan head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and hops. Medium-bodied with a roasty character of malt and espresso, along with some dark chocolate and earthy hop notes. The finish is semi-sweet with a charred malt and coffee aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Poured it from a bottle and the foam looked real nice and a great black look of the beer. I can smell some coffee, but not as much as I hoped. I think there is a distinct taste if the coffee, but I would have wanted more of the salt licorice taste.

Very dark brown appearance, sediment at the bottom of the glass., small but long-lasting head. I loved the aroma... like walking into a Starbucks. Malt, coffee, full-bodied.
