3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In short: A very fruity (borderline vinous) big silky porter. Just ok.
How: Tap at Bishops Arms Järntorget, Göteborg Sweden (supposedly exclusive to this Bishops Arms location).
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head.
In long: Nose is fruity and roasted, raisins on burnt toast, a bit of booze. Taste is raisins, dark grapes, roast, somewhat of a vinous character, some roasted coffee beans, cacao beans, fresh juicy prunes, figs, a bit of vanilla. Carbonation is relatively soft adding to the vinous sensation of the beer. Not bad but not very good. Not the best beer from this socialist country where starvation and homelessness do not exist, I am going to assume in Sweden the starving people eat the homeless.
