Bottle: Thanks Hackobock: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Medium to smaller sized ashy beige light brown head on top of a black colored beer.

Flavours of some coffee, bay leaf, bitters, light dry, some coal, malt roast, light cardboard/paper tint and some dried toasted leaves.
After a short period of time the roast kicks in and makes it a less thin beer.
Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, roast, coffee, some bay leaf/liquorice tones and some malts.
Low carbo, light watery mouthfeel, medium bodied and a watery texture.

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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is really dark "translucent" brown, with a nicely looking, one fingered tan n’ frothy head...
Aroma is really roast, with plenty of malts, coffee, hints of smoke, faint milky chocolate, slight hoppy/grassy notes, faint notes of nuts n’ leather.
Taste is mostly bitter, with faint sweetness up front.
Slightly watery body, with a semi-flat carbonation. Thanks to mr. Bursprak for bringing this back to me from Sweden...
