Dark brown body, medium khaki head, spotty lacing. Roast, smoke, a little peat, caramel, and chocolate. A nice smokey/peaty porter. Medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation, nice lingering finish. Quite enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at The Bishop Arms Folkungagatan, pours a deep dal brown with and a small tan head. Aroma of dark toasted malt, tar, some smoked malt, and rubber. Flavour brings out smoke and bacon upfront, and with moderate toasted malt. Quite smoky for a porter, which characterizes the flavour profile in this one. Fairly drinkable, but a little too smoky for my palate. Decent.
