Coffee, chocolate, nuts, wood, toast and some dried fruits. Dark brown to black with a tan head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium ti full body with a average to soft carbonation. Overall a really nice porter with e clear hop profile, really enoyable.

Kolsvart kropp å litet halvbrunish huve. Mycket choklad doft & lite rostat upplever jag, lite sött, lite godis å malt. Fyllig robust kropp men riktigt mörk choklad smak. Lätt gräddig ton. Lätt bitter. Trevlig eftersmak av bitter kaffe choklad.

bottle at home from trade with Saeglopur, many thanks Thomas :) BB-date not readable anymore. black color, looks a bit oily. small dark coffee-colored head. strong smell of chocolate, cacao, coffee, vanilla, smells creamy, very very light malty roasty smell. medium body, very soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel, light oily. tastes malty roasty, coffee roast, some chocolate, light sour and some light smoke, some citric notes, astringent. quite dry / roasty bitter finish. aftertaste of coffee and chocolate. wow drinks very nice, just the finish is a tad too dry. apart from that great beer.

Bottle- pours silky blackish brown, fluffy khaki head recedes to a permanent ring. Cocoa, coffee, some pine and oak on the nose. Velvety mouthfeel with rustic oak, roasted chocolate malts, vanilla and subtle caramel malt sweetness finished with a rounded hop bitterness. So smooth and tasty. World class Porter

Poured from tap a black with off white head and lace. Chocolate aroma and taste with a burnt note. Just the right amount of bitter. Good carbonation makes for a nice creamy head and body. Well done.

Really surprising that I haven’t rated this one. It strikes me as heavier than a typical porter, and has a great mouthfeel. Roasted and plenty of chocolate. Obvious burnt notes. Popular at the tasting I hosted. Bottle.

Aroma of oak, dark coco, and coffee. Taste is the same, maybe a little cola taste. Oily slick feel on the palate.
