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.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma is rich with coffee and roasted malts. It pours a black colour with a thick light brown foam. Taste is sweet with a little bitterness, some caramel and wood in the midtones. Great on the palate!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. This one i all about dark malts. Notes of licorice, dark chocolate, coffe etc. Nice oily texture. The only "bad" thing about ut is the lack of real complexity. Still a nice relaxed porter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of caramel, hops, citrus fruits, and liquorice. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, alcohol, and salt-liquorice, leading to a dry finish where the liquorice note lingers. Thanks joergen for sharing.

Thanks to Secret Santa for this beer
25cl bottle, Dark brown pour with a small head, the flavors are dry, roasty, with some malty sweetness in the background. For a beer at 9.1%, it is pretty easy drinking. Very nice.
