3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Ølbaren, Copenhagen. Black with a nice head + lacing. Aroma seems very hopped up with some roast struggling to get through. Tastes of blackcurrant fruit, sticky molasses. Again I get a lot of hops, and it makes me think of a black IPA at times even. Really well put together though, even if I wanted to taste a bit more of the malty side.

Pours pitch-black, brown-ish head. Coffee and roasted malts in the aroma. Very ballanced, drinkable, almost imperial stout-ish. Worth a try

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice imperial porter. For me the highest point is an aroma. Smells like pralines or milk chocolate. Head is thick light-brown, very nice. Taste for me lacks some body. Roasted chocolaty, coffee notes. I’d prefer it more sweet rather than on a salty side. But I guess this is a difference between porter and stout.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at BeerTemple. Black pour with creamy brown foam. Aroma of black licorice really roasty, light dark chocolate notes. Taste is very roasty, light molasses, not very sweet, toffee, fruity, lingering boozy finish. A bit harsh actually, something a bit acrid, maybe too much black patent or something similar.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Beer Temple. Pours near black with a small brown head. Aroma of big roast, plastic, jam. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter. Caramel in chocolate and good stuff in the palate, along with a strange fishiness which thankfully disappears into a lovely fudge finish. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
