We’re getting fancy on the Windowsill today!
My affection for Evil Twin Brewing knows no bounds. When I stumbled upon this beer at my local distributor, I thought it a no-brainer to pick one up. After all, it’s a collaboration brew between one of my favorite breweries, and world famous Swedish chef, Mathias Dahlgren! The man has his own Wikipedia page, for Pete’s sake. The 48-year-old Dahlgren is a four-time Swedish Chef of the year. That’s even more than the guy from the Muppets, I bet.

Unfortunately, this American Porter was a bit of a miss for me. When I opened up the Matölen bottle, I smelled the sweet scent of blueberries and chocolate. Regrettably, the taste didn’t follow through. The beer was ok, definitely refined, but lacking flavor, and it had kind of a chalky aftertaste. I admire the effort, and this beer won’t sully my opinions on either Evil Twin or Dahlgren, but I won’t be having another Matölen.

More great collaboration beers await on our Instagram, so check it out!
