3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wasn’t typical of a porter, although the roasted malt and toasted flavors came through nicely. Smooth, on the thin side, some chocolate and caramel and slightly sweet but not too much.

Bottle. Almost black with a strong sweet fruitcake aroma. Watery taste lets it down a tad, though I like the smokey cigar finish.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I was looking forward to trying this Toasted Porter. Appearance was a wonderfully satisfying black, though the nose was only a weak combination of roasted malts and caramel. A very different story on the palate which was silky and creamy. There was a clean sourish flavour which finished nicely with robust malts, which thanks to the good carbonation was very easy to drink.

Nice. Visiting my Swedish friends, they sometimes surprise me with rarities. Dark brown, modest head, notes of chocolate and coffee, medium to light bodied, less watery than some coffee porters I’ve had, but still you drink it and think you want a little more body here.
