Tasted at Oliver Twist in Stockholm: Coffee and hops in aroma. Very nice smokey coffee on first taste followed by a bit of American-like hops. Oh yeah, a bit buttery to fit the name, too. Bit thin on the palate, though.

Tap. Black body. Brown large head. Heavy aroma of burned wood, old smoke and some chocolate. Smokey flavour, burned malt. Bitter and smokey finish. A beer for malt whisky lovers, and I think a cigar would be nice with this. (Glenfiddich Warehouse Stockholm, 24.07.07)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Draught at Glenfiddich Warehouse No 68, Stockholm) Black colour with frothy pale brown head. Roasted nose with coffee, bitter chocolate and hints of tobacco. Roasted taste with chocolate, coffee and tobacco. Rather dry, with a lovely coffee bitterness in the finish. Not overly bitter, but perfectly balanced, with chocolatey malt shining through all the way. Actually quite brilliant, in my opinion very much like a porter should be.
