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...

Bottled. An unclear brown beer with a lazing brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of spices, caramel, and brown sugar. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of over ripe fruits as well as medium notes of caramel and spices, leading to a dry spicy finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

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 (21886) - 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.

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.
