Bottle from grocery store in Lillehammer, Norway. Pours dark brown with a generous white head that doesn’t last longer than the first sip. Aroma is milk chocolate and coffee. Medium mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly roasted malts and some chocolate, mildly bitter. It’s decent for the abv, a porter on the lighter side of everything, but easy to drink. Just ok.
