2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home, 2014 edition. Pours a reddish dark brown liquid and a large, lasting beige head. Aroma is quite dry, fruity and spicy with a chocolate roasted background and grassiness. Not very complex. Taste is dry, medium bodied and a bit sour from the roasted malts, notes of fruity coffee, dark chocolate, ash, red fruits. Not near the earlier vintages....hopefully my last bottle will evolve in the cellar.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nesten sort, og med drøyt skum! Lukter ganske lett og friskt, men fortsatt mørkt. Ganske søt, men balansert av rosinaktig friskhet og lett bitterhet. Fin fylde og lett alkoholvarme. Digg!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Pours a deep brown to black color with a small, light beige head. Fruity hops with peaches in the aroma at first, and then coffee and dark chocolate. The flavor is more roasted with coffee beans, cocoa, ash and hint of smoke. Has a rich mouth feel, and a balanced, solid bitterness. A great, rich and well-roasted strong porter.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
aroma is pretty sharp from coffee and pine with a touch of licorice. This batch feel more vital and awake than the 2013 edition. The taste is dark chocolate, dark bread, and coffee. A pretty dry aura surrounds this one and in the aftertaste you get some sweetness.
