tfredvik (1041) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2012
It might not be as black as a moonless night, as the label claims, but the body is at least close to black, with a brown tint. The brown head is quite small and fairly quickly it reduces to a thin film and bubbles clinging to the wall. Ok lacing. Many porters boast to be "chocolate monsters", but this one really deserves that nick: the aroma is massive sweet milk chocolate, absolutely fabulous! Also plenty of dark, sweet caramel. The aroma is lightly roasted, and in the background there is coffee, and dark dried fruits like raisin. The initial taste is moderate sweet and light bitter while the finish is moderate bitter. Again the chocolate is very present in the flavours, also caramel, faint coffee and a touch of alcohol in the finish, lightly roasted. The fruits are not dried, more like slightly overripe blue grapes. Soft carbonation, full body and a velvety chocolate mouthfeel, this is like drinking thick cocoa! A delicious brew, only lacking a bit in bitterness and hoppy notes.
[50 cl bottle, batch 183, enjoyed 4 years before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Storo, Oslo]

Finn (4032) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2012
Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Dyprød - egentlig svart: Lar seg så vidt gjennomskinne. Høyt, litt farget luftig skum. Sammensatt og god aroma av bær & lakris. Litt røyk. Oljeaktig munnfølelse. Rik, ikke påtrengende smak. Lakris, svisker og litt røyk. Avslutter tørt. Alkoholen merkes ikke. Et veldig behagelig øl. KI=7

mjs (4490) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 3, 2011
(Bottle, 0.5 l, at Pikkulintu, 20111203) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and light brown. Palate was full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were roasted malts, hops, sweetness, liquorice, ash and bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty and bitter. A bit too hoppy for a porter but still nice.
