Arôme et goût corrects. Bon porter, mais un peu mince, légèrement acidulé. Gagnerait à être un peu plus corpulent. stouby (4779) - Holbæk, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2007

Bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a rich off-white head. Mellow, round aroma with chocolate and ripe fruit. Well-balanced flavor with a lot of malt and the bitterness it takes to stand up to it. Very good porter.
