3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Nordic, BBE 22.sly.2013
9% porter with honey, could this be a new Stormaktsporter? Well...no: Aroma is a total honey overdose. Flavour has honey and some salty licorice drops like Tervaleijona or Läkerol. Licorice notes get stronger towards the end of the glass. Quite unique stuff, hard to believe that this has 9% ABV.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle from ElDesmadre - dziekuje! Black, mid-sized beige head, artificial (or real? - very perfumy anyway) honey aroma. Quite light-bodied for the strength, hints of berries and lots of strange honey flavour, artificial or real - I don’t know.... too sweet and perfumy for my taste.

Bottle. Dark reddish brown which a vaporising head. Fizzy. Aroma is sour salted liquorice. Flavour is a weird sour liquorice that is not helped by the aroma every time you raise the glass to your lips. Kinda nasty
