Not my favourite type and not as rich as I want them to be. Still smoky and nice aroma. Nice brewery but not the best Swedish brewery. Slighty outside of Stockholm. humlelala (1375) - DENMARK - JUN 12, 2014
(33cl bottle from Systembolaget Hyllie; Bbd: April 2016) Pours black with medium, tan head that recedes fairly quickly leaving some lace. Decent regeneration. Aroma is roasted malt and butterscotch,with a metallic hint. Watery texture, medium body, soft carbonation and a slightly roasted finish. Flavour follows the nose. Lawger (275) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Pours black with a small white head. Loads of dark crisp bread, finnish memma, soy sauce and toffee. Rather dry flavour with a taste of julmust (swedish soft drink), and nice roasted malt. Quite nice. Dedollewaitor (16055) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle via trade with Hackobock. Thanks. Pours black with a beige head and lacings. Coffee, caramel, toffee, licorice and a touch of ashes and charcoal. Smoothand medium bodied. Quite decent. Splitenz (368) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 30, 2014
I haven’t had that many Swedish porters, but I think this must be one of the best. A very rounded taste, good roasty taste with a good overall hop identity on top of a sturdy backbone. Considering the low ABV I think this beer is quite an accomplishment.

BOTTLE 25 CL from rosenbergh. Thank you, Jan!
Look: pitch black with a big espresso head.
Aroma: ashy/dusty with distinct sour/brett notes, some kind of dusty „nordic” berries.
Taste: quite dry, well roasted with a rosted acid hint, juniper?, brett sourness, prickly co2 acidity.

250 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Jet black pour with a fairly large tan head. Lots of roasted malts, chocolate and fresh ground coffee on the nose. Taste follows the nose with the additional liqourice notes. MotherBrother (941) - Aalborg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2014
Pour is really dark "translucent" brown, with a nicely looking, one fingered tan n’ frothy head...
Aroma is really roast, with plenty of malts, coffee, hints of smoke, faint milky chocolate, slight hoppy/grassy notes, faint notes of nuts n’ leather.
Taste is mostly bitter, with faint sweetness up front.
Slightly watery body, with a semi-flat carbonation. Thanks to mr. Bursprak for bringing this back to me from Sweden... Geokkjer (7627) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 20, 2014
