COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Well known card play throughout the globe, famous black Swedish condom on the other hand, and now a Porter brewed for Jack Pano at Belgobaren. ""MOTVERKAR TRISTESS"" is Swedish for ""Prevent boredom"". After a lot of development trials, some even with the whole Monks crew next to the kettles, we finally launched this Porter aged on oak. Jack will happily propose this ale to friends, relatives, family & clients...

Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a hazy and opaque dark brown with an orange hue and a small beige head. Sweet aroma of dried fruits and hard roasted malts. Full-bodied, sweetish hard roasted malt, dried fruit and a discreet bitterness. Has a strange underlying tartness that gives a bit of a tang. 090209

omhper (18939) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2008
Bottled at Belgobaren, Stockholm. Opaque black with dense creamy beige head. Aroma of licorice and spruce needles with some vinous tartness. Chocolatey and lightly oaky with lemon, winegums and coffee. Feels way more Belgian than porterish with it’s vinous yeasty esters and restrained roastiness. Also the spritzy, lively mouthfeel and the pine needle bitterness points me in the same direction. In this beer I like the mouthfeel and drinkability better than the actual flavour.

Black color; the head reduces to a thin persistent and creamy layer. Aroma of roasted malt, rhum, cheese rind, feet, light chemicals and phenol; quite messy. The mouthfeel is smooth, but with a sour trace that I would like not to feel; quite good roasted malt and coffee flavor, but also some paper. The body is not strong, and this is more evident in the final, where there is a mix of mildly roasted malt and its sourness. This combination of flavors, even if not amazing, increases its drinkability.
It’s confusing; apprecieted if looking for a semi-sour medium-bodied Porter.

33cl bottle @ De Molen Shop. Pours dark brown with a small creamy off white head. Nose is coffee roast and cocoa powder. Smooth palate. Taste is roast, chocolate, coffee and a sour hint of dark fruits. Low carbonation. Medium bodied. Lots of cold coffee - a bit ashy.

Cloudy dark brown beer. Soft palate. Rich tangy porter, sourish malt. The oaking seems sublte - may have slightly rounded this beer off otherwise does not make it’s prescense known. Low carbonation. Smooth.
