3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[5/12/12] Bottle sample at Ølfestival København 2012. Black-colored with a light brown head. Classic roasty-malty Baltic Porter aroma with some alcohol and a bit of licorice. Sweet alcholic flavor with malt, roastiness, some dark fruits notes and a drier roasty finish with a light herbal hint. Medium-full-bodied. Not my thing, but quite OK.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle. Rated on 12.10.2009
Very dark colour, some light comes through at the sides of the glass. Thin and long-lasting head. Flavour reminds me of anchor porter with sweet chocolate, some cocoa and hints of coffee. Flavour has rye pudding, some sweet chocolate and hints of metal. Palate is surprisingly thin.
