500 ml, served in a tulip glass around 10-14 celsius
L: Nice black, opaque colour, tan head
S: clean, crisply malty if that's an actual thing, a bit coffee-ish
T: Again, its very cleanly malty with coffee notes, very pleasantly drinkable
F: Leaves a strong but pleasant smokey aftertaste and an oddly pleasant dryness
O: Awesome beer, bit expensive in my country, clean and not too complex flavour, ABV could be a bit higher around 8% but it's fine as it is.

Pours a medium head with a brown head that takes a good while to fade, leaving a compact brown lace. Aroma of licorice, chocolate, dried fruits. No coffee. Medium body,c reamy palate, correct carbonation. Taste of licorice, chocolate, coffee, dried fruits, burned notes. Good stout, maybe body is a bit light.

Tan head. Dark brown color. Nearing black.

English Porter all the way. Chocolate with some roast. Caramel and toffee. Sweet. Lighter bodied. Nice carbonation. Nothing crazy, but enjoyable and easy to drink.

From Hipercor. In Ikea's pint glass. At lunch, with fried potetoes with fried eggs and chicken steaks. Thin body. Some bitter chocolate in its taste and plenty herbal bitterness in the aftertaste. Nose is pretty dull.

On tap.
Pours opaque black with decent tan head, moderate to low retention.
Smell - thin, roasted.
Taste - roasted and caramel.
Light body, soft carbonation.
I'm not impressed.
