3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle acquired via unsolicited box from hopscotch...thanks again Eric! Dark mahogany pour with garnet, crimson, and scarlet edges and a small eggshell head. Cocoa, vanilla, caramel, dark fruit, and roasted coffee beans. The plum is there but isn’t necessarily the most aggressive quality. Instead, it melds well with the other flavors...subtle and refined. Pretty solid beer but not something to go out of your way for.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pours deep brown with garnet highlights. Fading beige head, Sweet aroma of chocolate, grain, fruit, caramel, Moderate carbonation, sweet taste of chocolate, plum, caramel with soft and floral bitterness with just a dash of coffee. This seems like an imperial brown porter rather than an imperial robust. Kinda nice,

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled bottle at porterveckan 2013.
Black with a light brown head.
Plums/prunes, definitely, like something you would get at your grandmother’s. Also sweet chocolate, caramel, fruits, medium roast.
This was interesting, but personally that prune flavour doesn’t quite work for me.

On tap at Christian Firtal. Black with a lasting tan head. Aroma of licorice, malt and dried fruit. Sweet roasted flavour, with plenty of dried fruit and brown sugar. A beer where ST’s signature sweetness works quite well, thanks to a roasted, drying finish.
