Really tasty. Coffee is in the nose and taste. Also plenty of black malt and a sweetness adds complexity. Looks great with tan head. yngwie (17102) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle. 22oz. It pours a dark brown, close to black in color and with a dense, tan head It’s quite mocha-ish on the nose, with roasted malts and some soy and licorice. It’s full-bodied and very soft on the palate. Roasted malts, mocha, a nice hoppy bitterness and some chocolate chip cookies in the flavor. The aroma had hints of soy and licorice, the flavor too, but they’re even vaguer in the flavor. There’s brown sugar too, but it’s not really sweet on the palate. The finish has a good dash of brown sugar and hoppy bitterness, as well as mocha and roasted malts. Sure a nice one, especially like the soft body and the mocha, but it still feels a tad boring. Considering the low ABV it’s very nice though. 150607 Meilby (11525) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2015

Bomber. Pours hazy blackish with 3-finger tan head that laces well. Nose is roasty dark malt hops, an oaty aroma, Tastes smooth and complex, with dark malt up front, some oaty, honey, and molasses flavors at mid-palate, and some finishing hops.

Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a light brown colored head
Flavor: The flavor is clean and sweet, but not overly so, with minimal bitterness
Palate: This one has a smooth, creamy mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation
I thought this one was a nice, smooth, creamy porter. Maybe it is a little bit too sweet, but overall, I enjoyed it. It certainly has a nice mouthfeel.
