COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Norwegian: Ølet er fløyelsmjukt og fyldig i smaken, med litt sødme og eit preg av sjokolade og kaffi, som kjem frå rista malttypar. Perfekt til sjokoladekaka! Ei smaksoppleving åleina.

English: The beer is velvely soft and flavorful, with some sweetness and a touch of chocolate and coffee, due to roasted malts. Perfect with chocolate cake. An adventure on it’s own.

tfredvik (942) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2011
This is a beauty: utter black 100% opaque body, with a huge, frothy, light brown, fully lasting head. An exiting aroma of dried figs, strong coffee, dark chocolate and earth. A light bitter initial taste and a moderate bitter finish. Lively carbonation. A perfect match with my wife’s french chocolate cake! [50 cl bottle, from Ultra, Bryn, Oslo]

Bottle. Dark with a nice creamy head. Smells of dust and liqourice. Taste of burned malts and smoke. The finish is not really significant. Where is the bitterness?

StoreMy (27) - Nesttun, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2011
Mørk bortimot sort. Solid skum som legger seg litt for raskt. Skuffende lite lukt før en har tatt et par-tre slurker og skummet har lagt seg. Da kommer det frem lukt av røyk og gammelt treverk. Fyldig kropp slik en porter skal ha, men litt enkel. Den har en irriterende bismak av “støvet kjeller”. Denne blekner riktignok etterhvert, men er ikke noe en jakter etter i en øl. Fin balanse i sødme og tørrhet i ettersmaken. Ut fra totalinntrykket og den noe høye prisen er dette neppe en øl jeg kommer til å kjøpe ofte, men heller ikke noe jeg kommer til å velge bort om den settes fremfor meg.

rosenbergh (6087) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2011
500 ml bottle. Finland.
Dark brown almost black colour with average brown head. Roasted malt, dark chocolate and some coffee in aroma. Dryish hops, roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee in flavour. Not necessarily in that order. It’s slightly light but it’s understandable in 4.7%. I don’t know about the adventure but it’s still rather enjoyable.

mjs (4277) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2011
(Bottle, 0.5 l, from K Supermarket Kamppi) The beer poured deep dark brown and quite clear. Its head was brown and medium sized. Aroma had roastedness, chocolate and coffee. Palate was quite full bodied and bit dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were ash, roastedness, burnt malts, coffee, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty and bitter. The taste was a bit unclean but otherwise this beer was really good for such a mild one.

TET (1434) - FINLAND - JAN 5, 2011
Black beer with big and brown head. Aroma is balanced and great, rostiness, coffee, sweetness, milk chocolate and some sourness. Taste continues greatly from aroma, roasted and chocolate, smooth and tastefull. Smooth and nice to drink and surprisingly, almost full-bodied. Tastefull, complex, low alc. % and enjoyable porter; very positive surprise for me.

Todella tumma porter, jonka päälle muodostuu vaalean ruskea vaahto. Aromi on suklainen, kahvinen ja paahtunut. Maku on kahvinen, tupakkainen, kuiva ja paahtunut. Humalointi tuntuu suussa. Jälkimaku on ikävän pohjaan palanut. Suutuntumaltaan tämä porter on melko kevyt, muttei kuitenkaan ohut.

500 ml bottle.
Pours a pitch black colour with a beige, lacy head. Aroma of dark chocolate, mild roasted coffee and roasted malts. Flavour of smooth, dark roasted malts, coffee and tobacco. Medium bodied with a slick and thick mouthfeel. Very pleasant for a 4,7% abv brew.
