3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm) Very dark brown/black, little head. Nice roasted taste, with lots of chocolate fudge and a hint of...Coca-Cola(?!, Yes, a bit surprising). The taste could last a little longer though. Slightly too much carbonation, a bit more taste after some swirling around. Nice porter, but could be a bit mooreish.

Very dark with a small head. Aroma of toasted malts and coffee. This also in taste plus chocolate. Very soft taste even though served with too much carbon dioxide.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the brewery.
Light, transparent brown. Lightest possible in the range of the EBC scale. Malty, chocolatey nose, very nice. Mouthfeel is very light. Flavour is rich chocolatey with notes of phenols. Not caramel neither hops were sensed. Still I found this quite enjoyable. A bit on the thin side though, for my taste. The average drinker will probably enjoy it. This is another beer in the Gothenburg series, attempting to trap drinkers of International lager.
