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.

Staffan47 (906) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2014
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.

Pour out of bottle, thanks Andre! Dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought big dark chocolate, roast, nice mellow coffee bean into some earthy tones, nice spicy and yeast come through, pretty nice. Taste is fairly mellow, nice dark cocoa bean, coffee, and roasted malt into some spice, grassy, and yeasty hops, slight bready notes, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry.
