Vignale (2539) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2014
Flaska från SB med etiketten smoked winter porter. Julöl 2014. Närmast kolsvart, lågt beige skum. Stor doft av rostad malt med choklad, sötlakrits och lite rök/tjära. Relativt lätt kropp vilket gör den väldigt drickvänlig och lättmatchad till mat. Stor rostade smaker, medelstor sötma, lätt beska choklad, lakrits (tänk de brun/svart/vita-bitarna i engelsk konfekt), lite försiktig rökighet. Mycket trevlig och perfekt på julbordet.

Lilja (2130) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2014
Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, choklad, torkad frukt, aska och rök. Lätt kropp, lagom sötma, fruktig, fin rökighet, avslutande citrusbeska. Gott och bra balans mellan smakerna och rökigheten.

Marknadsförs som Smoked Winter Porter i SB:s julölsortiment. Dofter av rökved och charkuterier. Smakar prickig korv och svartrökt skinka. Nja, jag är skeptisk. Föredrar dessa smaker på vörtbröd och inte i glaset.

awest (15) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2014
500ml bottle, sourced from Utobeer, London Bridge. Pours a nearly black with medium almond coloured head that lasts, leaving lots of lacing. Aroma is peaty, smoky, chocolate and espresso. Taste is cocoa, coffee, caramel and a lingering smokiness. Palate is perhaps a little bit thin for a porter of this style but overall this is a very good, enjoyable beer.

mzaar (2051) - Varberg, SWEDEN - NOV 21, 2014
Flaska (Thornbridge Smoked Winter Porter). Väldigt mörkt brun öl med fint gräddigt skum. Dofter av kakao, kaffe, charkuterier och aska. Smakinslag av kaffe, vanilj, rostad malt. Rökig avslutning. Lite för mycket kolsyra för min smak. Medel mot liten kropp.
