4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The scent is thin but what a wonderful flavor. It’s like getting a spoonful of sweet cocoa in the mouth. The aftertaste is never ending. A wonderful beer that you just have to taste it.

big thanks to deflagro for this rarity! beautiful bottle, ceramic but with a satin finish instead of matte. nice pour, dark brown with a good sized brown head, nice retention. nice bit of cocoa on he nose, but its much more present in the flavor. Smooth, nice body and palate, not too bitter on the finish, very sessionable. not huge or crazy, but a solid importer from a new brewery, i like!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Systembolaget.
Has an oily black texture in the glass with a minimal brown head. When you smell it you immediately feel the cocoa and then som pleasant toffee and grass. The taste is also dominated by cocoa without becoming either too bitter or too sweet, perfect balance. However, it lacks in mouthfeel, it doesn’t quite feel as heavy as the taste suggest. All in all though, this is a fantastic brew for a brewery’s first beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown to black with a lacing off-white head. Aroma is distinct - utterly DISTINCT - dark chocolate. Even the the chocolate bitterness comes through in the aroma. Bitter, dark roasted and deep black chocolate flavoured. Bitter and bone dry into a linger chocolate finish. Lasting bitter and dark roasted chocolate impression. Sadly a bit thin on the body but a unique experience on the chocolate intensity.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ the source in Malmö, sampler tray.
Brune foncée, col café au lait.
Arôme de poudre de cacao, grains et biscuité, cacao est assez profond et domine le bouquet de cette porter.
Palais est agréablement bien chocolaté, poudre de cacao avec un malt choco dark, léger grillé, café moyen. Au final, l’effet cacao s’estompe et devient par moment un peu encombrant voire de trop. Le côté houblonné reste discret et contribue peu au profil général.
