Bottle from Systembolaget, february 9th 2013. Black body, big tanned head. Roasty and hoppy aroma, coffee, herbs. Taste of dark chocolate, roasted malt, erthy hops, licorice. Nice dry mouthfeel as I like in a porter, robust bitterness, aftertaste is roasty with earth. A nice porter. Geokkjer (7673) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2013

330 ml bottle. Dark brown body, close to black with a big, foamy tan head, Nice aroma of roasted malt, coffee and liquorices. Flavour of dark roasted malt, liquorices, coffee and quite bitter. Fine body with a long, dry, aftertaste with roasted malt and coffee. A bit robust in style, but I really enjoyed this one. tfredvik (2095) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2013
Deep brown almost clear body with a big-bubbled head that laces the glass well. Strong aroma that initially feels very sweet, but after a while it becomes more dusty and dry. Roasted notes, dark caramel and chocolate, with some smoke and tobacco in the back and even further back I find some fruity hints. Light sweet and light bitter taste. Strong roasted malty flavours with chocolate and coffee. Also hints of fruits and herbs. Smooth and dry texture with a bit too soft carbonation for such a light body. Still a very nice beer!Archibaldo de la Cruz (1120) - FINLAND - FEB 3, 2013

caramelly notes. Dry-sweet earthy roasty chocolatey taste with
heavily roasted grain and caramel notes. Mid-bodied. Mild,
soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish earthy chocolatey toffee
