4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Thanks to VsXsV:
Dark brown pour, medium vast tan to brown head, changes slowly into a sticky tan brown head on top of a deep murky brown to black beer.
The aroma’s are a fine mix of light roasted barley malts, coffee, some light toffee caramel sweets, some hops and it’s floral fruit character, some light hints of dark chocolate and a hint of light light stingy grains. The smell is overall dark roasted, but not as complex as many (imperial) stouts, still really good!
Taste is a nice roasted medium bitter mix of: coffee, roasted malts, roasted barleys, some coffee roast, medium bitter, hint of creamy dark chocolate, light sticky and dark chocolate drenched hops.
Roasted herby creamy light bitter aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft almost silky more creamy mouthfeel, medium to more fuller body and a creamy light sticky texture.
Really good considering it’s alcohol percentage.

Floral and spicy hop aroma with hints of juniper, sage?, roasted malt and licorice. Rich flavoring of roasted malt and licorice, big hop flavors and hints of heather. Good bitterness in the end.

Dark dark brown with a amber touch and a thick light brown head. Very nice beer with a nice mix of chocolate, coffee, nuts alongside more flowery hoppy notes. Ends with a for the stile above average bitterness. A good porter that have a lot of flavor, yet it’s easy to drink and goes down like a charm.

This is a good porter with lots of coffee, chocolate and malty aromas and taste. It has a quite nice smooth palate with a slightly bitter ending. All in all an average ok porter.

I’ve had this one on Tap at Amaranten Hotell (Stockholm) and from Bottle 50 cl at the Beerbar at NK Saluhall (Stockholm). It works out fine either way! I’m looking forward to release of the bottle at the Systembolaget (march first 2012), it’s a rather limited edition. The Color (pit black), The Foam (thick but nice), The Palate (Full) and off course - The Taste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample @ Porterfestivalen in Gothenburg on November 19. Pours black with a creamy mocha head. Smell is roasted malts, coffee, grapefruit and some liquorice. Taste is slightly sweet with roasted malts, coffee, orange zest and pine. Quite nice but felt more like a black IPA than a porter.

Draught at VilleValla Pub. 2010 vintage. Black, opaque liquid with very big, thick tan head. Aroma is roasted with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, earthy hops, leather and caramel. Taste is also roasty with notes of pumpernickel, coffee and biscuits. Quite dry and medium to high bitterness. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation and smooth, oily mouthfeel. Nice one, has aged well. Balanced.
