3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pitch black with a coffee tinge for the head. Has a very different smell, hints of coffee and the smell of akevitt. Mellow on the palate at first, followed by coffee a hint of sweetness. Really warms on the aftertaste. A very decent porter.

Bottle shared with northropfrye. Pours with a cocoa coloured head. Deep dark brown opaque body. Notes of molasses in the aroma. The aquavit barrels have done this beer no favours in my opinion, but I still liked it.

The aquavit in here actually works quite well, it’s subtle, and you still get a robust coffee/dark chocolate porter taste going on here. Dark brown/black colour with brown head, not a tonne of lacing. Aroma is bready. Taste is sweet malts, molasses, brown sugar, dark chocolate, nice bitter aftertaste. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. A gusher - I was wondering if there would be anything left.. Pours and opaque brown with of course a huge head. Aromas of meat, chocolate, and heavily roasted malts. Flavors of light smoke, leather, and burnt malts, with a slick lingering after taste. Full bodied, oily, and hot.
