3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is slightly malty and toasty with some coffee notes, but doesn’t have a great carry. Appearance is watery but dark with a small off white head. The taste was a bit toasty and malty, but also a little stale and bitter. Coffee taste was present but not overly robust. Palate was thin, but carbonation carries the finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Little, to no, aroma. Color certainly qualifies as porter. Light coffee taste, with a full toasted/charred finish. It seems more bitter than toasted.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear black with a warm reddish hue and a beige head. Subtle roasted nose - more nutty rather. Medium body, bitter chocolate notes and subtle roast. Everything appears rather mainstream and downplayed as with most Einstök. 011015

Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours black with a medium-sized white head. The aroma features roasty, bready maltiness with coffee and rye pudding. Taste is sweetish, full of chocolate and licorice. Medium roastiness, not very dry, even in the finish. The palate is medium-bodied, creamy in texture, softly carbonated. Fairly rich in taste and displays a nice, velvety palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle courtesy of Chris! Pours into a chalice glass black with mahogany tints, has a creamy tan head. Dry bournville chocolate notes in the short malty aroma. Thin oily mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malt complex gives a moist maltloaf base laden with notes of black coffee, liquorice, woodsmoke, roasted barley grain. Earthy hop prickle gives a short musty hopped aftertaste. Smooth malty finish with sweet dark chocolate, black coffee and ash in the mouth. A decent porter.
