Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stokholm. Near black, rich airy head. Mild chocolate/licorice aroma. Dry with spritzy, rounded mouthfeel. Salty, roasty and bready with medium-light body and non-intimidating flavour intemsity. Salty ansiseed finish. Heavy carbonationa makes it feel a bit blown up or diluted.

Dark mahogany color. Light coffee aroma. Dry coffee flavor, quite bland, no chocolate; dry finish; like an office coffee. Useless.

Leighton (18222) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2010
Tap at Swift. This is exactly what I expect out of a porter. Pitch black with a firm, off-white head. Nose of burnt malts, coffee and some chocolate. Flavor was dominated with dark, roasted malt character but there were also some pleasant hop notes. More coffee notes. Rich and creamy, this was an enjoyable drink. Slight lingering roasted malt aftertaste. Really good.

Poured from a 12oz bottle (thanks to Dave L from PA - drank Apr ’12) at room temperature into a snifter to an off black, dark chestnut brown colour with a thin tan head which soon reduced and dispersed to little more than a puddle atop the glass. Lacing present above the beer line throughout drinking. The aroma was non too powerful. A little roasted malt with a modicum of coffee and biscuit in the background. A solid tasting porter dominated by roast malts and chocolate, the latter which I didn’t really pick up on the nose! A little tobacco and wood in the background and a sweetish malty finish. The mouthfeel was just right for me, medium in body with a smooth finish and minimal carbonation. This beer invites you back for more with every sip and I only wished I had another bottle to crack open! Overall a decent porter and certainly one I’d go for again. At room temperature from the off, this beer got better on each reviewing field, the aroma and appearance were ok, but the all important (to me) taste and palate were excellent! Definately one to visit again!

The aroma is primarily coffee, backed by some darkly roasted malt. Opaque brown/black color with an off-white head that filmed, but laced at the edges of the film. Medium bodied; moderately carbonated. Thins as the carbonation leaves, but it touches on creamy, and the coffee will not quit. There is light sweetness accompanied by dark roasted malt, and there is enough bitter hop to balance the whole. It’s the best porter I can recall - but my organic database is hard to call up. At this moment all I can say is that it is really very good. Really.
