3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A deep dark porter with a thin brown head. In aroma, a pleasant fruity chocolate aroma, lightly maderized but still nice, light molasses. In mouth, a sweetish porter with light coffee notes, a bit powdery and dry, a bit tired. Bottle from MLCC, via Piscator. Thanks Chris. BB 09-02-10

Mörk relativt syrlig porter drucken hemma hos Ulf på temat tysk öl. Kändes väldigt otysk. Snarare engelsk eller baltisk med kärvt bränd rostning, relativt lätt kropp, len konsistens och lång eftersmak. En av kvällen bästa öl.

almost like Christmas cake - lots of dark maltiness, with a dose of fruitiness and a nice alcoholic after glow. Have that cake with a good strong coffee and you are in the right ballpark when it comes to this beer. What makes this stand out is that it was very smooth, even silky.

Bottle: Pours a dark brown color, with a nice beige head with nice retention. Nutty, Malty smell and initial taste. Roasted barley and a hint of caramel malt sweetness in the finish, chocolate comes into play here. Alcohol content masked fairly well, I really enjoyed this one.
