3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the tank at the brewery, RBESG. This is the brewery’s "brown porter" or "summer porter". Deep reddish brown colour, nearly black. Creamy tan head. Roasty aroma and flavour with notes of coffee and chocolate. Maybe a tad too sugary in the flavour, still it is fairly light bodied and easy drinking.

Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm.
Very dark brown, brief head. Aroma of grapefruit and licorice. Dry with clean, hard mouthfeel. Very roasty with notes of metal and blood. Short finish with medium bitterness. Lovely hoppiness, but the malt profile is it’s drawback.
