4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Systembolaget.
Has an oily black texture in the glass with a minimal brown head. When you smell it you immediately feel the cocoa and then som pleasant toffee and grass. The taste is also dominated by cocoa without becoming either too bitter or too sweet, perfect balance. However, it lacks in mouthfeel, it doesn’t quite feel as heavy as the taste suggest. All in all though, this is a fantastic brew for a brewery’s first beer.

Brown pour. Cacao aromas, dark chocolate. Taste of roasted malt and bitter cacao and dark chocolate. Bitter finish. Cool execution, but very one-dimensional.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Large light brown persistent foam characterize this porter. It has good aroma of chocolate and coffee. The taste is rich and good of lovely gentle coffee notes, and after a short time superseded those of dark bitter chocolate. It is nice and tasty, but I would like to see a little more filling from the chocolate, only so that it could live more up to its name.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ M&F. Pours a deep red color with a light-brown head. Aroma if chocolate. Taste of roasted malt and milk chocolate...and lots of it. Medium body and low-ish carbonation. Sweet and pleasant with a nice aftertaste of roasted and milk chocolate. Not fantastic but otherwise a very solid chocolate stout. I'll have again it if I find it again.
