Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Very dark brown, small head. This licorice aroma is interrupted by whisky. Fairly sweet. The concentrated coffee and licorice flavourd of the Starkporter is interrupted by the whisky. Still a good beer, but the marriage between the barrel and porter did not really have the desired effects.
