oh6gdx (20252) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2013
Bottled (I think...)@HBF2013 (Thanks to Sir Kumpulainen the brave). More or less deep brownish black colour with a mediumsized brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, ashes, some coffee and actually nicely floral and fruity as well as some mild toffee. Flavour is roasted malts, ashes, coffee, mild fruits, toffee and some slight foral notes in the finish. Very bodied and nice porter!

stefannilssons (1454) - SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2013
Ölen ser onekligen väldigt inbjudande ut, alldeles kolsvart. Aromen är inbjudandeed mkt rostade toner. Smaken däremot var en besvikelse, ölen var alldeles för sträv och obalanserad för att falla mig i smaken.

Rostad, platt doft. Rostad. Beska. Bra porter. Hoffback och Kjellander tror att det är chili i. Jag är tveksam.. Men det är en bra porter. Riktigt bra
