Bottle. It pours a dark reddish brown body and a small, dense, beige head. The aroma is surprisingly weak, with some prunes, roasted malt notes and coffee. It’s dry on the palate, nicely carbonated, and medium bodied. Some roasted notes in the flavor, with dried fruits and a little hoppy bitterness. Lasting finish with some roasted malts and a nice bitterness. Gets a bit more interesting after a few sips, but overall it’s pretty boring. 140117 Meilby (11495) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle 500ml @ fonefanKnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2014
Pours clear reddish brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, chocolate, caramel and floral. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a slightly warm and chocolate finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
*Bottle from Systembolaget. Very dark brown. Lovely roasted malt flavour. Smoke, liquorice, a hint of salt. Balanced sweetness, very pleasant. I’d enjoy a barrel aged version, or perhaps a stonger edition. gnoff (10336) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2013

50 cl bottle, bought at while back. Likely ordered by the bottle to my local Systembolaget. Seems to be available at three stores. BB April 2014, sampled on November 1, 2013.
Clear dark reddish brown color, big fluffy lasting tan head. Very subtle nose, light sweet, the faintest hints of smoke, a sprinkle of fruits - dark and dried, some notes of what is likely to be alcohol as well in the scent. Smells mellow, laid back, not bad at all but also doesn’t like to speak up or be noticed. Sweet, bread, grainy, light roasted, some alcohol, fruity taste. Thankfully the taste takes up way more room than the scent did! Hints of mineral, light tart, some Trocadero making its way through in the taste as well. Mineral, roasted, hints of coffee, some charred notes in the aftertaste. However there comes the Trocadero in the aftertaste as well, what is that, like some sort of soft sweet/candy like estery chemical thing, unnatural flavor component. A bit like charcoal and ashes mixed with pop, when trying for subtle but noticeable, but overdid the camp fire notes when the coal dropped into your pop glass. Rather full mouthfeel, some CO2 that sticks out, but not too much. Medium bitterness. Smell is way too laid back, taste do get through a whole lot more, but have some weird notes that I feel should not be there for my personal preference.
Draught at Haket on April 20, 2017.
Clear deep red to black color, big tan head. Malty, slight roasted taste. Malty aftertaste. Medium to fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness. Malty, slight roasted scent.

ekstedt (6773) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2013
Aroma has a typical roasted sourness that usually is found in porters. There is plenty of burnt aroma and some aroma of wet wood. There are aswell hints of chocolate and some alcohol in the aroma.
It pours black with a bit too quickly dissipating beige foam.
Nice roasted burnt flavour rounded of with a nice bitterness. There is some alcohol aswell in the taste but not much,
Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. It is to carbonated for the style.
It is a nice competent stout although not extraordinary
