3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The scent is rather vague, with hints of roasted malt and coffee. The taste is a bit thin but it has the classic flavors of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. The finish is slightly dry. An okay porter but as I said a little too thin!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33L bottle, picked up @Systembolaget, Charlottenberg. A huge fluffy, mostly diminishing tanned head, upon a dark brown to near black body. Initial aroma is fruity, almost perfumey yeasty. Then a smell of mild choco and sweet licorice. Taste is on the drier side. Cocoa-ish malt flavor. Choco tones and well prononced roastiness. Bittering hops for balancing. Less than medium full. Lively in the mouth. Finishes dry, roasty and fairly bitter. A quite unusual Porter. Went well down, though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2011 Bottle.
Pitch black with a nice dense creamy mocha head that leaves some lacings.
Hard roasted aroma and a bit sourish with coffee and chocolate hiding in the background with some vanilla.
Taste is very acidic burnt with a light sweetness that is pushed down by a big burnt grassy bitterness. Coffee, chocolate, tar pastille and also here some vanilla.
A bit thin and watery with quite lively bubbles.
Nice flavors, but a bit watery in the middle and also maybe a bit too ashy.
