3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge brown head, over practically black beer. Rainwater, USA hops, fragrant but smelling sweet. Bitterish-wry flavour, dry, grains & dry brown bread. Sweetness is there, but delayed, as chewing on old brown bread. Very slick-viscous, alcoholburning. Not truly great, but a good special.

1500 ml. bottle sampled @ "Er Klopt Iemand Op De Deur" Samson & Gert Bierproeving I. Thanks! Average light brown head, black. Heavy on roast, bitter, bit thin, light herbal bitterness, coffee grounds, leather, liquorish, dark fruits, grainy, feels tinned out. Okay but not very exiting, not sure if this is the age (quite possibly) or it was never their most exiting beer. Agreeable enough porter.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Provning av hela serien på Mikkeller HQ, dagen före CBC-14. Otippat doftlös. Jobbig oangenäm smak av avlopp. Skall tydligen ha likheter med breakfast stout enl provningsleraden. Möjligt. Härlig kropp, provningsleraden alltså. Piptobak i doften kommer efter en stund.
