3.3/5  rDev -11.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

The colour is deep brown (70 EBC), the liquid a bit cloudy. The four finger brown airy head slowly sinks, leaving some fine lacing.

The smell is very malty. Lots of chocolate and cocoa. Clean bitter notes. Hints of smoke and lactose.

The taste is dry and bitter with distinct notes of milk chocolate and cocoa. Low sweetness, almost dry. Light body. Hints of smoke and wet leather. Some sourness and clean bitter flavours. Hints of autumn leaves and earth. The aftertaste is a little sweetwer with a fine clean bitterness and lots of roasted flavours. Some sourness and chocolate in the finish.

The carbonation is medium strong. The small fresh bubbles shortlived. The liquid is semi smooth and a little dry.

An OK English porter. I miss some sweetness and body, though.

Thanks to Baggio for the bottle
500 ML poured into a Mikkeller tulip

A-- Poured a dirty, murky dark brown color. Half finger of dirty, off white head. For the most part film. Little bit of streaky lacing through drinking.

S-- Great nose. Strong Nutella nose with a lot of coffee mixed in. Slightly dry nose. Bigger smell than what I was expecting.

T-- Coffee, chocolate, nuts, dark fruits and a fairly hoppy, acidic taste. Works well.

M-- Slightly thin here and there but good medium light body. Coffee and the hoppy acidic feel carry the beer to the mid and back palate to a very dry coco powder finish. Coco powder sticks around for a while. Medium carbonation.

O-- Good lighter style Porter. Really liked how it went from Nutella to dry coco powder and a good amount of hop bitterness in this. Works quite well for the style.

3.93/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours dark brown with a large light brown really creamy head that slowly sinks into nice lacings.

S: Roasted dark malts, almost a bit burnt. Sweet. Strong black coffee and some chocolate.

T: Taste follows the smell, but there is also some faint vanilla notes and some dark dried fruits, even some bitterhops.

M: Long lovely bitter roasted aftertaste. Body is full and carbonation moderate. Smooth!

O: Nice! Probably the best from Sigtuna yet (at least of what I've tried).

4.03/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The beer is dark dark brown, or black maybe, the head is brown, high and settles slowly leaving good lacing. Good curtains.

The smell is roasted bread, some smoke, dark coffee beans, some chocolate and dark dried fruits.

Starting slightly sweet, dark chocolate, then cold espresso, and general roasted tones. A quite bitter finish.

Medium low carbonation, small bubbles, slightly sticky, an almost coarse dryness.

Named Autumn Porter, but in modern style closer to a stout, but a really good one.
