Sampled from draught at Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival 2005.larsniclas (7326) - Billdal, SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2005
My first beer of this years festival and what a start it was!! Dark brown with a small tan head. Dark roasted malt aroma along with chocolate and liquorice. Very full and nice with a good complexity. Sharp and biding flavor of roasted malt and liquorice with a tone of berries. A bit alcoholic, but the alcohol is well integrated. Bitter finish. A very tasty and interesting porter that I hope to see on bottle one day!
Draught at Plain Kitchen, Gothenburg, Sweden.
Black with a brown head.
Roasted aroma with toffe. A bit sourish.
Soft and smooth palate.
Milky, salty and roasted flavour with some licorice. rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2005
On draught at Plain Kitchen, Göteborg.
Black, with a tint of red. Light brown head. Loads of toasty licorice in aroma and the familiar house yeast character. Chewy, fiery mouthfeel. Licoricy backbone with a sweetness, that’s perfectly balanced by a robust bitterness. Might as well be taken for an Imperial Stout. Great beer! hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2005
Pure black colour, decent beige head. Hoppy, yeasty roasted malt nose. Jämtlands house character. Flavour from chocolate and coffee. Somewhat fruity and caramelly finish. larsam (127) - Southampton, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2005
Rated @ Stockholm beer festival. Black with cream coloured head. Lots of roasted malts and chocolate in the aroma. Flavour is full with roasted malts and citrus. A nice one!
