3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 75 oz. Comes ad Kølster Original Porter Brew No. 97. The color is dark brown with a reddish edge, and a large but slowly vanishing cappuccino-colored head. Aroma is a lot of roasted malts, hints of caramel and brown sugar. The flavor is intense sweet, quite nutty and almost without bitterness. Interesting notes of salt licorice. Medium body, Oily texture. Very soft carbonation. Sweet roasted finish. Fairly complex, but too soft and sweet for my palate.
