2006 Vintage. Bottle. Pours a deep black with a small, dark khaki head. Aroma of sweet chocolate with raisins. Mouthfeel is initially sweet, but a nice bitter finish comes through in the end. Nice beer for a fall evening. CMUBEERMAN (458) - - JUN 6, 2006
1997...poureed black with minimal head. The aroma was strong with oxidated scotch, coffee, and chocolate. Flavor was quite rich with roasted malt and burnt chocolate. Body was rather light. RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - APR 4, 2007
This beer pours a deep dark chocolate brown with a light tan head. I smelled a a light toasted maltiness with chocolate tones. Excellent balance and smoothness. This may be the one of the best porters I have tasted booyaatribe (453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2001
Supposed to be consumed at room temperature.
It just didn't do it for me. Cool bottle, tho. l1br4r14n (451) - Rancho Cucamonga, California, USA - JUL 19, 2009
2006 bottle. Pours dark brown almost black with a thin tan head. Nice chocolate malt aroma with some dark fruit. Flavor is milk chocolate, roasted malt, cherries, plums, and light coffee bitterness. Well balanced sweet and bitter. Clean finish. Fantastic!

1997 vintage (argang). Aroma of chocolate cake - and that ain’t bad. Almost completely flat, no head at all, just a mild hint of carbonation. Deep coffee-brown colr. Black pepper, then dark chocolate, a bit watery as the flavor fades. Medium body, oily and round. Some woodiness. and moderate dryness. Very nice for this odd style.. I believe this one was too old and had lost some depth. timsilvia32 (449) - from Michigan now in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 17, 2008
Nearly black pour. Pretty roasty in the nose, coffee, burnt toast. Tastes of the same, with maybe some slight dark chocolate and molasses. Enough hops to even it out. Another very good Scandanavian porter, albeit a little different. Dahlstrom (445) - Nygatan 29, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2016 33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a medium off-white head. Moderate malty aroma of roasted coffee, chocolate, caramel and syrup. Taste reflects the aroma. Medium- body, with a semi-dry texture. Average carbonation. Low bitterness. Beerandhockey8 (442) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - APR 5, 2014
From 12oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a deep amber that’s nearly black with a thick tan head, lots of lacing. Nose is coffee, roasted malt. Taste is very sweet, medium bodied, some hop bitterness balancing this out. Finishes so silky with a great after taste. Awesome porter Abrakarl (437) - SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2013
OK so this is a Baltic porter. More body than the one at 3,5%. Slightly better at every part. Still not too exciting. Weak aroma with some cola in it.
