Strange aroma of sherry, cocoa and some spice.

Watery, acid, buttery mouth. Eucalyptus and liquorice. Yeast seems like champagne yeast. Weird. Tastes totally different than it looks.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not my favourite type and not as rich as I want them to be. Still smoky and nice aroma. Nice brewery but not the best Swedish brewery. Slighty outside of Stockholm.

(33cl bottle from Systembolaget Hyllie; Bbd: April 2016) Pours black with medium, tan head that recedes fairly quickly leaving some lace. Decent regeneration. Aroma is roasted malt and butterscotch,with a metallic hint. Watery texture, medium body, soft carbonation and a slightly roasted finish. Flavour follows the nose.

Pours black with a small white head. Loads of dark crisp bread, finnish memma, soy sauce and toffee. Rather dry flavour with a taste of julmust (swedish soft drink), and nice roasted malt. Quite nice.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I haven’t had that many Swedish porters, but I think this must be one of the best. A very rounded taste, good roasty taste with a good overall hop identity on top of a sturdy backbone. Considering the low ABV I think this beer is quite an accomplishment.
