In short: A roasted and fruity big porter/stout. Nice beer.
How: Tap at Bishops Arms Järntorget, Göteborg Sweden (an aged older keg I think)
The look: Black body topped by a very small dark-beige head
In long: The timid nose is a bit on the fruity side with roasty notes reminiscent of charcoal. Taste is a mix between heavily roasted cereals, juicy dark fruits, earth and some vanilla. Big contrasts between the various flavor elements but somehow the whole thing works. In some ways a Swedish Porter is like a Norwegian Stout, both cannot play the harmonica or fix a sandwich.

300ml draught, poured into a St Feuillien glass at De Klomp. Shining, beige head over an almost inky black body. Delicate aroma of cocoa and coffee malts. Lots of dark and dried fruits in the flavour character, on a straight malty backbone. Vinous in the mouth, but not too heavy or thick (Linköping, 05.02.2010). ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2009
