Dark fruits and dark chocolate in the aroma. The taste is chocolately with some coffee. A little bitter desite more than half a year storage.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color ale with a nice dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light roasted malt with some black chocolate notes is quite pleasant. Taste is also dominated by some roasted malt with light dry coffee notes and some black chocolate notes. Body is quite full with nice creamy texture and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Easily drinkable for the style with just enough complexity to be interesting.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
Long dark chocolate malts whip up chocolate chip allusions as well as roasted bread crumbs in a slender and bitter vehicle.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the brown-edged black.
-Even though the finish is balanced out by hop bitterness, you can still stay this brew’s all about the malts.
-This is not as sweet as many NAmerican takes on the style.
-Alcohol was not a bother at all in the flavor profile.

It pours dark ruby coloured almost opaque; the head is off-white and foamy. the aroma has notes of: toffee, biscuit, and toast. The taste is light sweet that finishes medium bitter; there are notes of: coffee, toffee, and chocolate. The palate is medium bodied, has light carbonation, and a long bitter finish. Overall, it’s meh.

Smells like chocolate, licorice, charcoal, oranges, dates, dried fruit. Taste mirrors the aroma, finish is smokey, acrid, charcoaly black malt. Very nice.

Får då säga att detta var en mycket behaglig porter. Rostade toner, bra balans och fyllighet i både smak som kropp.
