3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The 1/3L-bottle bought from Indslev Bryggeri 22nd of June.
Brown bubbly foam, with a fruity smell of orange and mango and fir-tree,
Dark brown-black porter, with a taste of very much dark chocolate,
coffee, melissa, grass, hops, smokey malts.
Afterwards dark chocolate dominates palate.
And I think there was a twist of cough mixture.
I never noticed any vanilla.

Nose is sweet and sugary, vanilla, light chocolate, touch of roast malt.
