1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. From notes.
I had such high hopes for this one, since I like both smoke and licorice in my porters/stouts. This bottle was infected, vinegar and sourness, the wrong kind of smokiness. I guess there are some nicer flavours in the background, but this wasn’t drinkable.

@ Bishops Arms, Vasagatan, Sthlm. Pours black withe a beige head. Aroma has smoke and is in a way floral and brings a nice tone of sweet liquorice. Sweet liquorice, smoke and a flowery tone play along well in the flavor.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dark brown colour, with a tan rather small head.
Strange aroma and flavor, smoke, liquorice, bacon. Very sour, but not a sourness as in a pleseant Cantillon for example.
I could not drink the whole bottle, a strange beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml Bottle (Thanks Svesse) - Dark brown in colour. Smoky and slightly roasted aroma with hints of liquorice. Slightly sour taste with liquorice and more sour and smoky hints in the finish. The sour element (intentional or not) is a bit odd at first, but you get used to it after a while. Nicely balanced and interesting.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
courtesy of, and shared with Gnoff.
One interesting and strange experience, a strong liquorice porter.
Pours dark brozn, beige head.
Aroma is smokey, light malts, light liquorice.
Taste was quite the opposite. A strong liquorice engulfs the palate followed by some smoke. Light in body, notes of dark malts and dark fruits, hard to exaplin, and hard to finish with a sour like finish.
Could not really notice the porter as it was all covered with too much liquorice.
Not horrible, but a one time try that was enough.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
courtesy of Per - cloudy and very dark brown colour with a persistent but chaotic beige foam; nice lacing; roasted aroma of pear and licorice, some tartness and slightly acidic; moderate malt body which fails on the end of the tongue; fresh and moderately sweet; short and quite dry aftertaste of licorice - very unusual and quite confusing

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö
Dark brown color. Strange aroma: smoke, cabbage, liquorice candies. Dry mouthfeel, weak, liquorice candies, some roasted malt and smoke. Disgusting!
