mcberko (9568) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - MAY 1, 2013
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.

Bottled 500ml. -from Pivoljub Ljubljana. Black coloured, small to medium sized beige head, mild roasty nose without any trace of smoke. Roasted malt, caramel, notes of dried fruits and milk chocolate with mild smoke presence. Slightly roasty finish. Expected better for sure.

Holmen1 (3623) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2015
Fra fat på Mi2 Cardinal aug-15: brunsvart med beige skum. Flott aroma og nydelig smak (selv med bruken av torvrøykt malt!), balansert. Kaffe, torvrøyk, plumpudding, korinter, deep fruityness. Alt dette også i ettersmaken.

Kita (1495) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 2, 2015
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear dark brown head with medium soapy light brown head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of smoke, caramel and chocolate. Taste starts light sweet grainy with roasted malt note, following is refreshing fruity and smoky, while finish is moderate bitter. Medium body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. A bit too subtle to meet my high expectations...

Vili (148) - FINLAND - JUL 21, 2015
50cl bottle. Dark brown pour with velvety, light brown head, little lacing. Aromas of peat, rye bread and coffee. Taste is malty and sweet, although a bit weak and somewhat bland. Low carbonation, oily palate. Aftertaste is long and sweet, malty ride. Not bad, but was expecting more.

drjoeng (207) - - JUN 2, 2015
5.3% ABV. Smoked Porter. Presented with neat malty nose full of honeyed dates. Full of sugary promise. Rich swarthy porty stain, coming in at around 40ºSRM. The first thing I have to say about the palate is the crisp DRY FINISH. The carbonation is light with floral and spicy flavor notes as the aroma blooms after the first sip with lilies and sandalwood. Interesting.

huineman (421) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 25, 2015
Dark black with red shades. Long-lasting tan head. High aromas of smoke, coffee, chocolate and Maggi dressing. Silky, mouth-covering, with a bitter finish. Classic and nice.
