Impressive beer. Roasty aroma and a sweet chocolate flavor with dark malt accents. Braudog (6676) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2004
2001 beer - Poured dark brown with nicely poofed head. Powerful aroma of roasted grains and sweetness. The beer is pleasantly smooth and understated, with a hint of woody chocolate and crunchy toast. Beautiful beer. Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2003
Very dark brown pour with mahogany edges. A large head that bubbled away rather quickly. Roast malt, caramel, chocolate and small hops comprise the nose. A slight coffee flavor that leads more into the chocolate and roast malts expirienced in the nose. A bit of a watery body and palate but finishes with bitterness. A good porter.

Deep, dark body. Tan frothy head. Fruity aroma but the flavor was rich and deep and a hint of chocolate and , perhaps, coffee. Satisfying drink. ztrvz (218) - st paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2003
freakin' tasty sweet chocolatey smooth goodness that leaves a nice lingering presence in the mouth that keeps begging you to take another sip ASAP. too bad it costs 5 freakin' bucks for a 16oz bottle.

Dark brown/black, thin brown head. Chocolate and roasted malt aroma, vinous notes as well. Flavor was full of malt, chocolate and coffee with hints of liquorice. Full bodied, kind of oily. Very good. stefanberggren (135) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2003
A Swedish Porter! Wahoo...My ancestors were Swedish and after tasting this one I would I am proud to call myself a swede! This dark, almost opaque porter pours smoothly into a glass with a nice light tan head. The head dissapates to fine layer of foam. The aroma is full of nice notes of molasses and malt. The flavor is full, but not overpowering with roasted grains tying into a perfect blend with the molasses(treacle) flavor. Full bodied and long lasting finish the hints at coffee and licorice. Wow I call this a great porter and would be happy to sip on this anyday of the year, but it is really nice in the fall. Skol ! sloth (2897) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 15, 2003
Ever so slight brown head, a small ring of lace left rimming the edge of my glass. Black with a brown hue at the edges.Big nose of dark malts, smoke and licorice.Med/full body, creamy, slick, somewhat coating. Roasted malt, chocalate, mild vinous notes and a touch more smoke work well together. Finish is wet/dry. Damn fine porter! mribm (462) - Ocala, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2003
2001 16.9 oz. Bottle. Smells like chocolate and tastes like chocolate with a dry finish. Ulla (17) - Halmstad, Nebraska, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2003
One of the few we Swedes can compete with on the international market. Full of chocolate and burnt sugar and though dry in the palate.
