Dark opaque black color, tiny beige head. Toasted, coffeish, ashy aroma. Medium-bodied. Sticky palate. Flavor has tobacco ash, cold coffee and roasted malts. Some hops in the finish. Nice but perhaps a bit too ashy for my liking.

Flaske kjøpt på Vinmonopolet. Svart farge, stor beige skumtopp som varer, medium karbonert1. Smaker av mørkbrent malt, kaffe, kakao, vanilje, jord, kjeller. Utrolig god. En svært fornøyelig porter som faktisk ikke er altfor kraftig
