4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A pitch black beer with a medium beige head poorly persistent. Toffee roasty aroma, toasty, coffee, herbs, smoke. Light to medium sweet, medium lasting bitter : oh yes. Medium voluptuous body, thin texture, average carbonation, roasty lasting bitter finish. Overall, truly delicious ; cradled like a baby :)

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
33 cl bottle. BB 15/05/15.
Rises some when the bottle is opened.
Black color, small dark brown head. Malty sweet, milk chocolate scent, some smoke. Burnt, almost acrid, rather acidic taste. Acidic, grainy, roasted, some coffee aftertaste. Fizzy mouthfeel, medium high dry bitterness.
The overly fizzy mouthfeel, with the look of the head when poured, also the rising in the bottle with the acidity makes me wonder if something is not entirerly OK with this bottle?

2 scores averaged, first time having this it was garbage, I actually wrote that it tastes like a dead burnt wet dog.. Second sample, thanks to Calvin- much better, medium smoke, very light mouth. Your basic Belgian smoked .. . . The o-face!? The oh my god I squirted you in the eye!

Color is dark brown, almost black with a beige head. Aroma of smoked sausage, which really annoyed me. Taste of coffee and roasted/smoked malts. Little low on flavor actually. Didn’t like it very much, but this doesn’t mean that it was poorly made. Just not my kind of beer.

Rigorous roasty notes in this light porter. An very reasonable application of the style. An every day good drinking porter.

Flaska från Saveur Biére. Smak och doft av rök, aska, choklad, rostad malt, torv, tjära med toner av lakrits. Fadd, lagom sötma, liten syrlighet. Fina smaker, bra balans för den som gillar öl av det lite rökigare slaget.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black-dark-brown colour with a tan medium sized head with good lacings. Aromas of smoked charcoaled roasted malts, long dried hay, with traces of coffee and intense-bitter chocolate aroma offering a light liquorice note on the retronasal side. Softly carbonated with a mellow slickness and a medium-full body. Light earthy sweetness with a well pronounced coffee roast malt bitterness develops with notes of umami reminiscent of bacon due to the smoked malt. Lasting pleasant and balanced finish.
