The liquid is pitch black (120 EBC), the high head is brown. Lots of lacing occurs while it slowly sinks down.

The smell is creamy and semi-sweet. American hops and red berries.

The taste is smooth and creamy. Dry roasted, almost burned, flavours. Red berries. Full bodied. The aftertaste got roasted notes of chocolate/cocoa. The finish is a bit salty.

The carbonation is strong; the small bubbles are fresh. The liquid is a bit thick.

More of an American stout than a porter. And a very pleasant stout it is.

I'm glad I got to try this one again due to my yearly business trip to Eskilstuna, Sweden. Thanks Peter for the hook-up. I got it home safely and even though the best by date was 3/1/11, it was still rockin.
A: A huge tan rocky head which took a while to settle and yielded a nice creamy lacing all over the glass. Color is very dark brown to black. The creamy covering on top the beer is quite persitent and last to the end.
S: Plenty of chocolate nose and some fresh leafy hops to back it up. Toasted bread notes and a sweet cereal quality. Light fudge like sweet notes topped with caramel.
T: Some nice chocolate notes finishing with a nice fresh cut grass flavor that lingers. Toasty and smoothed out with a good caramel maltness.
M&D: Medium light quality but creamy and that hop finish balances it out and keeps you coming back.

A: Black with a large head, it provided great lacing.
S: Caramel and chocolate malts. Mild leafy hops.
T: Coffee, caramel and chocolate with a leafy hop shot. Aftertaste left a strong leafy hop note. Chinook hops.
D: Went excellent with my blueberry desert soup. Mouthfeel was creamy and drinkability was high. Definitely along the lines of an American Porter and one of the best I've had.
