3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At the brewery. A dark brown beer with a red shine under a thick brown head. The aroma is sweet with loads of chocolate as well as hints of acidity from the very hard roasted malt. The flavor is sweet and starting off with strong notes of chocolate, but then the roasted malt gains in strength combined with a hint of acidity from the hard roasted malt, to give it a rather dry finish that last for a long time. The mouthfeel is very smooth.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(On tap) Clear, very dark - almost opaque - orangey brown with a tall, handsome, beige head with good retention and leaving laces. Soft aroma of roasted malt. Rather light body with sweetish, roasted malty notes - but also both coffee and chocolate. A discreet malt bitterness. "Our summer Porter", the brewer explained. 250806

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.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2008 2008-03-04, draught at Bishop’s Arms, V. Hamngatan, Göteborg, 6-4-6-3-12=31
Black color; creamy head. The aroma is not only roasty, but also breadish. The mouthfeel is medium-thin and dry, with a lean roasted malt flavor. Well, you know it, not my kind…
2007-11-09, 7-4-7-3-15=36, draught at Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen
Dark color with red shades, strong chocolatey aroma. Good body strength, strong flavor, mixing caramel, dark chocolate and some roasted malt, a bit of sweetness and the bitterness is just above the average. Chocolate drink. As usual a good beer from Dugges.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2008 Bottle. Pours a really dark brown body, next to black, with a small beige head on top. Slightly sour aroma, indicating the beer being over the top, but after letting it rest for a while, roasted and burnt malt is taking over the show. There’s also chocolate, coffee and a fruity touch. Roasted, burnt chocolate and coffee flavor, with a little acidic note in the background, strenghtening my theory of the beer being over the top. Medium body, quite dry. Finishes as it starts, with a good coffee-like bitterness, and a fruity, hoppy touch. Well, not excactly my idea of a porter the way it’s experienced now, so I leave the old rating untouched. Rating: 6-4-6-3-12-3.1. And that’s probably too generous. (080816)
Tank at the brewery. Dark, dark brown with just some reddish notes. Topped off with a small, tan head. Chocolate dominates the aroma, and is followed by coffee, roasted malt and some fruity hints. The flavor is with chocolate and coffee, quite sweet and with some fruitiness. A refreshing, mild porter with a long finish that is quite coffee-bitter. Medium body. I like it. (060825)
