Bottle from systembolaget. Aroma of roasted malts, liquorice, and dark chocolates and some subtle saltiness. Taste is smokey, liquorice with a creamy finish. The palate is full and tasteful, it lingers in a nice way but doesn’t stay unnecessary long. Overall a really nice beer. Not the best i’ve ever had but definitely one of the best porters I’ve had this far. SirLimpsalot (4288) - SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2014
@Basunen: ganska diskret salt doft. Smaken är halvt fyllig med gräddiga toner av malt, lakrits och salt. Inte spektakulär men helt ok.
