Botella. Deep dark brown colour with a huge light brown head, well lasting good lacing. Pleasant roasty malty smoky bit aroma with chocolate. Good filling mouthfeel. Pleasant flavour of roasted malt with chocolate and bit smoke to it too. Good bitterness. Well balanced and only 4,7% alc. Tasty brew indeed. Thanks a bunch Rune!

500 ml bottle. This one is heavy and dark, but fortunately it’s not too heavy. It is a perfect match to a chocolate dessert, and the flavours open up at their best at 10-12 degrees Celsius. One of my favourite porters.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Norwegian supermarked: Pours a near black with a light brownish head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is mostly standard porter taste. It is rather smooth and medium-bodied. Chocolate is somewhat milk chocolate. Roasted malt flavour present throughout. Nice and smooth, but ultimately forgettable.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice aromas of coffee, chocolate and charred steak. Lovely with steak (for that reason). A bit light in body and can taste thin, especially when drunk too cold.
