Keg (yes keg), 500ml, at U Kakpra, Krakow. Dark brown to black with tan head. Big heavy beer, lots of fruit initially, then into a tarry, alohol, liquorice experience. There is always an underlying sweetness, I suppose this comes with the territory. Quite nasal in the close. Decent beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark colored. Roasted malt aroma with coffee, peardrups and raisin. Full bodied. Malty flavor, in fact with loads of roasted malt. Raisin. Coffee bitterness. Warming alcohol that bangs your head after a 15 hours working day. Whoahhh, abundant with flavors. Great beer. My thanks go out to Dortmunderfor this bottle.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled: This is probably one of the beers I’ve been looking for for the longest time. Burgundy coloured. LIght brown dense and impressing head. Long lasting. Aroma is malty, sweet and very light smoked. I’m not overly impressed by the aroma. Flavour on the other hand is quite impressive. Sweetness, liqourice, coffee and a nice hoppiness laying on a perfect maltbase. The alcahol is very well hidden. If I should critic this beer, I miss a little roastyness in the flaovur, but its still an subtle and complex beer. It all ends up in a remarkable bitterness and a very nice alcaholburnt. LIke others stated. This is a perfect winterbeer.

Nice moka head which collapses but maintains, leaving a lace behind. Nose of licorice and chocolate. Locrice and moka coffee in the mouth, with some residual sugar, rich mouthfeel with malt bitterness at the end. Wish they still had it (or the Okocim) at the LCBO. Thanks to CapFlu!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pitch black colour with a nice big creamy brownish head. Aroma of chocolate, well roasted malts, dark lagered fruits and caramel. Flavour has a good roastiness and chocolate in the beginning, then more round and caramellic with a dry bitter roasty finish. The alcohol is really not all that noticeable. Great porter!

It’s a black porter with a nice, creamy head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt and caramel, just like the flavour, where I also find coffee and a light bitterness, that lasts quite a while. The sweetness is a bit too much, but I have to be fair to this one and try it again some day, since I had it right after the barrel aged Smörpundet Porter. 2399
