Marduk (6616) - Reval, - DEC 3, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours very dark brown color. Medium tan head, disappears very quickly. Looks bit fizzy. Sweet, malts, roast, faint clove in aroma. Chocolate, some roast, sweet (even tempted to say caramel, but I wont), malts in flavor. Surprisingly weak aftertaste.

McNeillR (2243) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2014
Dark brown, rising bubbly beige head. Earthy sultana and malt nose. Oaky and light vanilla - gassy and meaty. Light fruit, dank bitterness and rich sweetness following through.

MattiasA (862) - Malm, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2014
Backlog. Bottle via Systembolaget. Many of their more experimental beers dont really work with me, especially when you throw chili into the mix, this however is an exception, i quite liked this, good balance between the malts and all the spices.

Svesse (7965) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2014
(Bottle, as "Winter Porter") Dark brown colour, almost black, with hints of ruby when seen through light. Frothy pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with chocolate, black rye bread, a touch of smoke, liquorice, cocoa and roasted nuts. Malty, roasted taste with notes of chocolate, cocoa, black rye bread, coffee, liquorice, black rye bread, some smoke and a certain spicy bitterness in the finish. Some chilli comes through after a couple of sips. More than medium body, with a touch of sweetness. The chilli and smoke makes it a bit different, but its quite nice.

small fizzy offwhite head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. flat thick brown body. aroma: moderate toasted malt, dark chocolate, mild coffee, alcohol. if: moderate sweet. ff: moderate sweet very light bitter; average duration. palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. Tem um leve toque cido do comeo ao fim que a diferencia das outras Porter. Tradicional amargor de caf pouco perceptvel no incio, vai ganhando as caras perto da metade da cerveja. Ligeira picncia no final. 40s

laiti (8138) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 06.11.2013
Aroma is somewhat spicy and a bit musty with cocoa powder, soy sauce and peppery spices. Flavour has soy sauce, some alcohol, spicy notes and . A bit leathery palate and dry finish. Very slight feeling of chili and it might be placebo as well. Not very good but not bad either.
