Nils Oscar Company – Rökporter (Smoked Porter) – 5 out of 7 smokestacks

image

I barely get to conduct these beer blogs anymore. My job is taking up all my drinking time. This is a pretty good beer. This dark Swedish beer (the Swedes aren’t known for their beer, are they?) comes off smoky, malty, a little ashy and bitter, and I swear there’s a barrel aging involved here but I can’t find any evidence backing up that statement. All the flavors taste well balanced and give me a ‘goes hand in hand’ impression. That’s all I have for this above average smokebeer. Overall happiness factor – 5 out of 7 smokestacks.
