3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Opaque black color. Sweet toasty aroma with licorice, salty licorice and dark bread. Dryer taste with dark bread crust, licorice, salt and some dark fruits. Medium body. Pleasant porter with a soft gentle roastiness, nice dark bread association from dark bread crust and salt.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl bottle from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours very dark mahogany, close to black with not much head to speak of. Moderate aroma of dark malts, chocolate, dark fruits and hints of licorice, vanilla, wood and dried fruits. Medium to moderate sweet with mild dark malty flavours and a fairly balanced bitterness. Fairly easy to drink but feels a bit thin and watery. Fair enough, but nothing I would buy again.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very deep copper body, almost black, with a tan head that is a bit small. The head is rather long-lived and leaves a good amount of lacing. Strong, malty and sweet aroma of chocolate, with vanilla and liquorice in the back. Strong flavour that is dominated by chocolate, but also lots of dark caramel and actually hints of mint in the background. Moderate sweet taste with a light to moderate bitter finish. Close to full-bodied, creamy and smooth texture, rather soft carbonation. It dries up a bit in the finish. A lovely porter just how I like ’em!
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 7 months before BB date, from Systembolaget Gårda, Göteborg]

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another one in the "no genius but solid craftsmanship" category. Think Guinness but with more carbonation and minimally less intensive flavour. You can do way worse.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ganska fräsch porter från Grebbestad med smak av bl.a. karamell. Avnjutes helst inte tillsammans med havets mest överskattade "frukt".
