Small head. Spicy fragrance.Traditinal porter with as smoaky facade. Lots of caramel and roast nuts, dry figs and dark chocolate, but altogether just enough to make a good meal companion with the sturdy christmas food.

Pours a clear deep brown with small frothy light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, hints of coffee, maybe som spices. Taste is sweet and rounded with a bitterness that builds over time and is at its richest in the fairly long finish. Medium, creamy body. One of the best from St Eriks.
