Sample at a Systembolaget tasting. Under the name Smoked Winter Porter. Smoke on the nose, also some chocolate and semi-dark bread. Similar taste. I like the level of smoke in this beer, it’s not overpowering and just adds an extra dimension.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours brown, dark in the glass, thick creamy tanned head. Smell of roasted malts, hints of smoke and tar, quite like being on a campfire cooking coffee :) Moderate sweet, smoked malts, also hints of tar; roasted malts as well, some thin thin coffee in the back. ends off with a dry ashtray tad in the mouth. Nice!
