brewery (from the tank!). Quite decent, but perhaps a bit light. Deep brown in colour. Some mocha/coffee, with some licorice and citrus. Palate is light, but pleasant, with the aromas coming through in the flavour. Finish is dry and the flavour is a bit short. Drinkable porter though!
(Stockholm Beer Festival 2006) Dark amber, nice brownish head. Nice lacing on the glass. Chocolate aroma, malty, some cocoa and tar. Cocoa and tar in flavor as well, hoppy and with a distinct bitter tar finish.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2008 Bottle. Pours a really dark brown body, next to black, with a small beige head on top. Slightly sour aroma, indicating the beer being over the top, but after letting it rest for a while, roasted and burnt malt is taking over the show. There’s also chocolate, coffee and a fruity touch. Roasted, burnt chocolate and coffee flavor, with a little acidic note in the background, strenghtening my theory of the beer being over the top. Medium body, quite dry. Finishes as it starts, with a good coffee-like bitterness, and a fruity, hoppy touch. Well, not excactly my idea of a porter the way it’s experienced now, so I leave the old rating untouched. Rating: 6-4-6-3-12-3.1. And that’s probably too generous. (080816)Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2006
Tank at the brewery. Dark, dark brown with just some reddish notes. Topped off with a small, tan head. Chocolate dominates the aroma, and is followed by coffee, roasted malt and some fruity hints. The flavor is with chocolate and coffee, quite sweet and with some fruitiness. A refreshing, mild porter with a long finish that is quite coffee-bitter. Medium body. I like it. (060825)
(Sampled at the brewery) Pours dark brown to red with a nougat coloured head. Aroma of roasted coffee with some chocolate. Some sour notes. A bit smokey. A white chocolate, creamy smell. Taste: First sweet malt with cocoa tones. Then roasted coffee, pretty dry with an ok, grapefruity afterbitterness. Some spices and minerals. Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2006
(On tap) Clear, very dark - almost opaque - orangey brown with a tall, handsome, beige head with good retention and leaving laces. Soft aroma of roasted malt. Rather light body with sweetish, roasted malty notes - but also both coffee and chocolate. A discreet malt bitterness. "Our summer Porter", the brewer explained. 250806 GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 7, 2006
[From the tank at the brewery, RBESG] Dark, dark brown with a big dense head. Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate. light bodied with a nice dry, bitter finish.
