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.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
There are few porters who can match this one- the vanilla, the smoke just the faint of it... One to finish off the evening with and 100sek is not expensive when you get it served the right way at the right place and you leave the place with a smile in your face.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught, This is a big favorite of mine, very dark with huge light brown creamy head, bitterness, a lot of chocolate, coffee, butter.
The latest testing was of an stored barrel (for some months), this one had more flavor of tar and smoke.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pitch black colour, medium brown very creamy head, thick lacing. Aroma is heavily roasted, coffee, smoke, brown sugar, smoked sausages, very appealing. Flavour is roasted and full of black coffee, it has a nice bitterness and some acidity as well. Mouthfeel is smooth medium bubbles and a bit sticky. Nynäshamn once again proves that they are axtremely good at making stouts and porters!

2012-07-07, bottle, 5.9% ABV, 7-4-7-3-14=35
The color is very dark, almost black, with medium sized brownish head. Mild aroma of roasted malt with an impression of haring. Chocolate and roasted malt flavor, but the body is a bit too thin; dry mouthfeel; medium-low bitterness.
Good Porter, but not impressive.
2009-02-11, draught at Glenfiddich Warehouse N. 68, Stockholm, 6% ABV, 9-5-7-4-17=42
Black color; creamy head. Very nice aroma, dark chocolate and a touch of vanilla pod, creamy, with Italian espresso, light Madeira and tobacco; I like it very much. Medium body strength, but well round; it has a good chocolate flavor with light roastiness at the end, and a light sour vibe; no edges; balanced bitterness. Complex and harmonic.This is how I would like all my Porters. Excellent.
2006-03-13, draught at Glenfiddich Warehouse N. 68, Stockholm, 5% ABV, 7-5-8-4-15=39
Black color; thick creamy head. Aroma of roasted malt, ash tree freshly cut wood, coffee, ashes. Good mouthfeel, if not for a high carbonation it would be silky, with roasted malt, some coffee, light liquorice, dry, and hops; a bit metallic at the end. Solid.
