3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of Benzai. Small beige head on top of an almost black colored beer with a deep red glow coming through. Very nice strong aroma of roasted malts and some coffee. Tastes about the same. ABV could have been a little higher imo.
2017 bottle from Systembolaget, badged as Porter Klass III. Pours black with a tan foam and aromas of cocoa and a little toffee. Dry-sweet and lightly roasty, more cocoa and a touch of red fruit. Slightly cloying texture, but otherwise this is a well judged and tasty Porter. laand78 (104) - Tibro, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2017

Brune 33 cl à mousse blanc/jaune plutôt persistante. Odeurs de réglisse, de cerise, de caramel, de candi. Saveurs chocolatées, sucrées, un peu de café, des fruits noirs ... Bel équilibre même avec ce côté "sucré" qui ne me fait pas penser à une Porter mais me plait assez. Pas contre, quasi pas d’amertume !
