Bottle (2014 ed). Black. Malty, dark syrupy bready, roasted, light licorice nose. Med full bodied, clean nice finish. Some oilyness mid palate, real easy though. Good flavours, bit traditional bready närkeishy portery feel. Nice, semi-desserty- drink. Bit low on the flavour-to-abv- ratio, would expect more from such a hefty %.

A small taste from a friend @ SOPP2015 HKI. Pours very dark red with a low tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, alcohol and chocolate. Flavor is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, alcohol and hops. Excellent. dnoaksson (827) - , SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2015
Ibland har man svaret mitt framför näsan. Som varför Valsviken Vinterporter smakar alkohol: buteljen kungör att den är 9,1 procent. Elementärt, kära läsare. Det är å andra sidan det enda som är lättlöst med det här ölet, som drar in en i ett mysteriespel med intrikat handling. Ett drickbart "Cluedo". Hinner du reda klarhet i denna historia innan du blir alltför oredlig? Sällskapsspel från 18 år. hackobock (4045) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2015
