Pours dark brown with a small light brown head that disappears quickly. Aroma of roasted malt, dried fruit, alcohol, coffee, fudge. The rich taste goes along the same line like the aroma. Quite thin but still sweet. More peat in the taste and with a good bitter ending.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: black body no head.
Aroma: Alcohol, coffee, licorice, roasted.
Flavour: has a funky quality, same flavours as in the nose, but they’re weak. And there is something that disturbs me.
Total: drinkable, but a huge let down considering how good Nynäshamn is at porters.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours beautiful black with a hazelnut brown head, which looks delicious and reminds me of a really good espresso crema.
Aroma is unfortunately weak and disapointing with flavours of green apples and grass. Later I get roasted malt, coffee liquer, pumpernickel and figs.
Taste is much better. It feels light and smooth and i can´t feel the 9% alcohol at all. I get both coffee, chocolate and licorice but the dark maltiness dominates.
Medium body. Except for a slight grassiness, it´s not to bad. Not a crazy beer in any way but it´s very drinkable and quite nice.
