Thanks to Kölschtrinker for that one. Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep black, nice small head. Starts not as strong as exspected, intense malty with fine earthy notes, mild smokey. Finish with hints of liquorice. Well balanced and quite drinkable for a porter. Good!

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Rökporteren have distinct smoky aroma and little room for hard roasted malt aroma. The taste is also, as expected, very smoky and with a little touch of both coffee and dark chocolate. Here there is absolutely no gentle middle ground - you get what the label promises: that smoke! Almost as smoky as Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier, but the beers large volume and little heavy coffee and chocolate flavor and a little dried fruit.

Hade nog hoppats på mer när jag provade denna, den var inte riktigt vad jag förväntade mig. Doft av malt, kaffe, lätt rökighet. Rätt söt i sin smak. Inte så kraftig som jag hade hoppats och på gränsen till lite blaskig. Men helt ok.
