Poured cola brown in color with a thin brown head.
Chocolate, roasted malt, molasses in aroma. Quite smooth, dark bread, chocolate, roasted malt and molasses in flavor. Long bready finish. Tasty, easy drinkin porter. MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2017
My Bottom Line:Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2017
This fruity, earthy and lightly acidic Robust Porter has a lot to offer, but ends being a tad puzzling in its flavour deployment.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sizeable head of foam settles atop the brownish black.
-Green wood and hops combine in the finish.
-Alcohol is well hidden.
-Malts offer some toast, but mostly make way for barrel and fermentation notes.
-Body is frail for what is supposed to be a potent brew.
Bottle. Thx Per!
Medium brown. Thick head. On the nose this has a touch of brett and acidity, but also a fairly rich toasty note. That malt note is prominent on the palate, touch of funk. Not bad...a lighter chocolate note is really the feature here. Finn (7547) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 24, 2017
Sving-topp flaske 500ml med litt futt. Drukket på Lillehøgda 17 Apr 17. Svart. Så vidt gjennomskinnelig. Lavt bobleskum med krem på toppen. Pen lacing. Lett sjokoladearoma. Smaken balansert. Sjokolade & lakris. Behagelig - men i søtligste laget. TEJA (3056) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2017
Bottle shared by Björn thanks. Small and fluffy brown head. Soy aroma with chocolate arom. Small caramell sweetness and fine chocolate taste. Fine body and a balanced body.
