Bottle. Dark brown, almost black body with a big, dense, beige head. Aroma has dark smooth roasted malt, vanilla and some caramel. Flavor is sweet and smooth, pleasant roasted dark malt, a touch of caramel, dry fruit, nice bitterness and dark chocolate. Nice balanced body and long lasting, nice aftertaste. Feels bigger than 5,5%. A great one indeed.

Woow. The looks of this porter are incredible. On the naked eye the color of the beer is pitch black on the naked eye. Light reveals a nice ruby red glow. The color of the beer is crystal clear. On top of the beer there is a very thick soft layer of almond coloured foam. More foam than I’ve ever seen on a porter. I like the feeling of the soft foam when you take a sip. Foam retention is superb.
The smell of the beer is nice. It is salty. I smell some salted caramel. I also smell lovely malt aroma’s, quite toasty and roasty. The malt aroma’s give a nice burnt bitterness and a salty touch. I also smell some refreshing hop notes. The smell isn’t very strong, but it is very nice. I also smell some bitter and sweet chocolate. This aroma is propelled after some time, as the beer warms up. Lovely, especially together with the malt aroma’s.
The taste of the beer is lovely. There is a strong malty base, containing flavours of bittersweet chocolate, salted caramel, coffee and toast. There is a nice burnt bitterness. I also taste some dark fruits, a hint of plum, and some bitter hops. The beer is both dark and refreshing. The malts and hops accompany each other perfectly. What a good porter. This really is one of the top segment beers. Lovely. The beer is filled with strong bitters, some salts, and lovely sweets. The chocolate and coffee are very clear, but don’t smother the other flavors. Perfectly done.
The palate of the beer is also lovely. Medium full body, smooth texture but also a bit sticky and tingly. The carbonation is medium, quite a lot of gas for a porter. The finish is lovely. It contains some amazing flavours of chocolate and coffee and bitterness and yes!

---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone Skruttster (7) - Nyköping, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2016 does not count
Bottle from Systembolaget. BB 2017-04-27.
A fair bit of coffee, chocolate and roasty malt, as well as some sweet vanilla like tones on the nose.
Highly carbonated, the frothy tan head filled up the entire glass instantly when pouring.
Black, almost completely opaque, some very deep red tones, looks nice.
Medium sweetness and bitterness in a nice balance.
Medium-light body, slightly creamy and slick, bitter finish that lingers a bit.
A pleasant and straight forward porter.
