3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an opaque beautiful black with abundant toffee head that laces nicely.
Aroma is mostly toffee with some chocolate that comes out more as the brew approaches room temperature.
Brew is a clean chocolate and coffee, with mild bitterness on the tip of the tongue yielding to the more roasted character as it clears the mouth.
In all, a bold and respectable showing which, while not delivering much in the way of interest delivers as a strong porter.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a pitch black body with a massive light beige rocky head of considerable longevity. Aroma is cold coffee, leather, licorice, hints of freshly cut grass, dark berries and pine. Taste is coffee, pine, licorice, leather and hints of dark malts, dark berries and milk chocolate. Full body, soft to medium carbonation. Although a bit off the regular style profile for a Baltic Porter as far as I’m concerned, a pleasant porter from Uinta all in all.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the July 2014 3R6P gathering. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a huge foamy dark tan head that lingered forever and left decent lacing. The aroma was cola, anise, vanilla, cocoa and red wine. The flavor was toasty malts, vanilla, wood, cocoa, anise, red wine and heather. Medium finish. Moderately full bodied and creamy. Solid.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from systembolaget. Aroma of roasted malts, liquorice, and dark chocolates and some subtle saltiness. Taste is smokey, liquorice with a creamy finish. The palate is full and tasteful, it lingers in a nice way but doesn’t stay unnecessary long. Overall a really nice beer. Not the best i’ve ever had but definitely one of the best porters I’ve had this far.

@Basunen: ganska diskret salt doft. Smaken är halvt fyllig med gräddiga toner av malt, lakrits och salt. Inte spektakulär men helt ok.
