Marsiblursi (2963) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2008
3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught) Pours black with a brown head. The aroma is of dark bread, syrup, dark chocolate, coffee, some liquorice and light dark fruit sweetness. Undertones of blackberries, rubber, cookie like toast and some oranges and black currant notes, probably from some English hops. As the beer is getting warmer, it becomes fruitier and a bit vinous. The flavour is medium roasted, tiny burned and tar bitter, bit cookie-ish, light caramelly, dark chocolaty, light coffee, some subtle dark fruitiness and hints of orangey/black currant like hops. The mouthfeel is a bit syrupy and rather chewy with some sour notes both from the malt and hops. Hoppy and light burned aftertaste. Medium bodied

Draught. Black colour wih a dark beige head. Aroma is roasted coffee beans and malts. Flavour is roasted and rather tart with some sweetness. Roasted coffee beans and malts a some smoke. You don’t feel the alcohol. Not the biggest body. The finish is roasted notes together with a nice bitterness. This was quite nice - a bit too tart IMO though...

UPDATED: APR 28, 2008 Draught at the Bishops Arms, Järntorget Gothenburg. Impressive looking, with almost black appeareance and creamy off-white head. Subtle smells of coffee and milk, with suggestion of cherries? A bit of smoke and tar in the flavour. Sweet upfront with a mildly burnt, slightly spiritous finish. Thick mouthfeel. Good porter, but don’t know if you could work after a few of these!
