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. tkrjukoff (4334) - SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2011

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. VsXsV (4572) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2011
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.

Draught @ William K Kurvi, Helsinki (as Slottskällans Black Rocket Porter)SaintMatty (7603) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2011
Pours black with a foamy and sticky white head. Aroma has notes of slightly roasty malts and hints of metallic ash. Taste is quite smooth with notes of roasted malts, hops and ash. Medium bodied, but quite heavily carbonated. Nice roasty finish. Okay porter but not that special.
Bottle (Stockholm Beer Festival 2011) - Dark brown with a tan head. Chocolatey and roasted aroma with notes of coffee and liquorice. Roasted taste with coffee, plain chocolate and liquorice detected. sebletitje (10477) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2011
Draught @ Ölrepubliken Göteborg.
Noire, huile de moteur, mousse moka.
Malt grillé léger pour une bière qui passe pour être bien au-delà des 5.5%.
Complexe, malt grillé, chocolat avec touche de café amer et réglisse. Épaisse en bouche avec une note de fumé. Houblon reste en retrait et ajoute juste ce qu’il faut en amertume. gnoff (11138) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2011

Draught at Ölrepubliken, Göteborg. During their Mohawk week. On September 5, 2011
Black color, dense light brown head. Malty, sweet, lactic, chocolate, metallic, coca-cola scent. Fresh. Malty, roasted, coffee, chocolate taste. First sweet, then turns dry and roasted. Smooth mouthfeel, medium high bitterness. Cocoa and coffee roasted aftertaste that lingers.
Very nice and taste, loads of character.
Had it many times before, but for some reason don’t seem to have rated it.
Bottle at Porterfestivalen 2011, sampled on November 19, 2011
New batch from De Proef
Dark brown to black color, brown head. Sweet, herbal, spicy scent. Spicy taste. Roasted and alcohol aftertaste. Moussy mouthfeel, dry medium high bitterness.
Stora aromer och smaker för en billig penning. Här är det amerikansk porter med brytningen av pomernas/grape mot den mörka maltens brödiga sötma. Kunde lanserats som ett julöl. Riktigt god.
