The Rökporter was the bronze winner in the 2008 World Beer Cup category Smoke Flavored Beers!
The cap caught my attention.. pretty slick.
And what a crown! Smell-wise I'm getting a lot of smoky vibes - it actually smells like smoked bacon! And bacon's always good, right?
Tastewise it's a killer, as per usual when dealing with porters I'm getting dark chocolate and tar-y associations - although the coffee tones are subtle if nonexistant.
I'm no expert but what I can say is the taste combined with the smoky scent makes for a killer porter - highly recommended!
Stay dark, over and out.

Here's what I've been up to today!
Met up with an old friend of mine for a burger and of course some brew. This was at Texas Burger Co. in the Kista Shopping center. Naturally I went with a porter ;)
I took a trip to the local liquor store and got me some brew - today, from left to right:
- Nils Oscar's Rökporter
- Fuller's award winning Extra Special Bitter, the ESB
- D. Carnegie&Co.'s Carnegie Porter, call me mad but I thought it was brilliant with the burger!
I like porter B-)
Once I got home I tried out the ESB.. It was great!
stay brewski, till next time

Here's a little teaser for you guys:
What I'm drinking at the moment
Mikkeller's Jackie Brown Ale
Oppigårds Golden Ale
Absolute favourite out of the three being the Mikkeller - I'm a sucker for darker brew B-)
If you are fortunate enough to be able to pick up any of these though be sure to, they're all brilliant.
