Tar black. Big head, slowly dissapearing. Smoky smell, thin body. Flavor of yeast, dark chocolate and wort. Quite disappointing, and don’t try it with oysters as they recommend. With stilton or roquefort or some other hefty cheese it has its role, but not with shellfish.

Black colour with frothy, pale brown head. Roasted, malty nose with notes of chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Malty, roasted taste with coffee, dark chocolate, tobacco and a generous roasty bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness.

Flaska från Systembolaget. Ganska OK men inte då mycket mer. Inte speciellt "mustig" porter och alls inga ostron,

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
500ml bottle. Appearance is clear dark brown with a medium sized tan head. Aroma of lightly roasted malt, caramel and a hint of coffee, also something unusual that I can’t completely identify, but it reminds me of overripe melon and fermented rice. Taste has a light sweetness and medium-light bitterness. Medium-light body, slightly oily texture, average carbonation. I didn’t enjoy this beer, not malty enough and too watery for a Porter, with a peculiar offensive undesirable flavour.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Half litre bottle, picked up @Systembolaget, Charlottenberg. A low big-bubbled tanned head, quickly fading to some spotty laces. Body is dark brown to black with ruby edges. Light sourish dark malts hit the nose at first. Then a whiff of light acidic dark fruits and chocolate. Medium to light body, kind of diluted mouthfeel. A nice little saltiness is noticable in the flavor. Otherwise, quite a plain malt base with a certain sugary sweetness.
Also some fine notes of dark caramel and licorice. Stale bittering hops is lurking under. Light salty-malty ending. Oysters? Nah...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Dark brown and clear. Medium-sized light beige head. Light roasted notes with toffe and hints of coffee. Somewhat salty on the palate. More dark notes, including dark chocolate and toffee. Soft, but lively, carbonation that balanced nicely with the nutty and rich malts. Dry slightly bitter finish. Very nice.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle (BB July 2014).
Head is initially average sized, creamy/frothy, light brown, mostly lasting.
Body is dark brown to black.
Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, malted milk balls, cocoa powder, husks).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, unclean.
Medium body, watery/oily texture, soft carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Ugh, just terrible...aroma is raw and dumb, and it’s dirty and sour in the mouth. Rather unpleasant mouthfeel too. Utter drain pour.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Blev en kraftig dislike på denna. Aromen, knappt OK. Brödig, rostade toner kanske lite chocklad. Smaken lite bättre.
