djoeye (2549) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2014
Thornbridge Smoked Winter Porter : Coffee black body, light brown persistent head, rich crocheted lacing. Aroma; bread, tar, leather, mild floral hops. Taste; dark roasted malts, tar, leather, grassy and mild hops, cocoa, and moves towards a finish with dark juicy herbal chocolate. Feels easy in the mouth, gentle, soft, natural. Overall absolutely a porter, not that much a smoked. [50cl brown bottle, abv5.3%, B@Systembolaget Kiruna, 3€50c, BB14.02.16, T@höme]

Vignale (2576) - 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.

Bottle from Systembolaget, labeled as "Smoked Winter Porter". Almost black with a small tan head. Soft with light roasted malt, some smoke and caramel. Also some chocolate. The finish was quite dry. Easy to drink.

Lilja (2185) - 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.
