A little milder aroma of oak barrels. The taste is indescribable. Oak barrels, cocoa, coffee, not dry. That’s exactly how I want my porter. But there is only one beer that is better and it is Narke Stormaktsporter. But this beer is in the same league. The aftertaste is good as hell .It changes character very much. Now I just enjoy! How to obtain this you should be happy! Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

luktar friskt, vårträd med saltigt karamellinslag. ser ut som coca cola med en skumkrona. väldigt komplex smak, börjar fylligt med sötma som tar över för att sedan mötas upp med krämig karamell och chokladsmak och en stark beska i slutet.

andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2013
Black brew with brown edges resting underneath a solid light brown foam. Aroma is dense cookie dough, brighter chocolate, light bourbon and fine liquer. Flavor is superbly balanced with generous amounts of roasted barley brining notes of liqourice, bitter chocolate and coffe to the table, all rounded of by mellow bourbon notes, dark fruit character ending on a vinous semi-dry note. Overall intense but balanced in a way few darker "imperials" manages to be, all flavors delivered by a silky smooth, ellegant palate.

ninecats (54) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2014
Draught at En Öl- och Whiskymässa, Gotheburg. From the last keg. Pours black with a huge brown head, some lacings. Aroma is heaven. Soft heaven. Vanilla, bananas, soft tones of whisky and bourbon, oak and cocoa. Taste is silk smooth, with sweet malts, caramel, bourbon tones, vanilla. No real hop character (that would ruin this, I suppose). Low to medium carbo, medium to full body, oily texture. This is a tremendous brew, at least from keg. The brewer said that they will make more when they have time, they don’t want to rush it at the expense of the quality. That’s real craftmanship!

Bottle. Opaque black liquid with small tan head. Aroma of vanilla, toffee, wood, bourbon, chocolate, biscuit, butterscotch and light licorice. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of toffee, bourbon, chocolate and wood. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Quite nice, bit thin.

omhper (18963) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2013
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Near black, small head. Chocolaty nose with vanilla and bourbon. Mid sweet with full body and soft mouthfeel. Relaxed and harmonious with tobacco and chocolate, and interesting oak flavours. Deep and full of character. Glad to see this excellent brewer attempting a style of beer that can get him to the top percentiles.

Vignale (1808) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2013
Flaska från SB. Fantastiskt fin doft med mycket vanilj, bourbonkaffe och chokladkola. Kroppen är kanske lite tunn och smaken blir inte lika fyllig som doften men med det sagt är det ändå en sensationellt lyckad fatlagring. Roligt att lilla Qvänum kan göra så stor öl.
