TheJestersBeer (2408) - SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2014
350ml can. Pours a soldid dark brown, with a brown head. Roasted, malty, coffee-like aroma, dark chocolate, licorice, honey, faint hops, tar, earth. Off-dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2. Roasted, malty taste, coffee, licorice root, chocolate, caramel, chestnut, earth, faintly hoppy. Quite smooth, and well balanced. Not the mst compex porter ever tried, but certainly drinkable and enjoyable. (2014-09-04)

HULK777 (570) - - SEP 2, 2014
Licorice and coffee aroma, some hard toast as well. Taste of licorice and smoked charcuteries. Im not a fan of the typical licorice porter, but I get why porter junkies like this.

Hermod (6753) - Vantaa, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2014
350ml can. BBE 2014-12-10. From Systembolaget. Pours black with a brown, thick head, lacing. Ashy, roasty aroma, licorice as well. Flavor has some sweetness (licorice?) roasted malt, chocolate. Pleasant finish, coffee notes and chocolate lingering. As it warms up more, ashy notes. Thin, needs more body. Nice flavors.

Aroma smells like the Wild West, smoking guns and tar. Dark licorice, roasted barley flavor and an elegant palate. Pretty awesome for 5%

Zekada (427) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Roasted malts, chocolates and some coffee. Black with a smell brown head. Nice taste, dark chocolates and malts, yet fresh and citrusy. Palate is quiet thin for a porter, on the other hand it gives a fresh feeling. Overall a strange beer. Tastes and smells very (!) appealing but the body is really thin.
