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.

50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 08.01.2011
Aroma is roasted with coffee, some semi‐dark chocolate and cocoa. Flavour has chocolate, some cocoa and coffee. Very good Porter for this ABV, definitely the best of Ægir <4,8% beers.

I was suprised of how fruity this ale was, thought I’d be much dryer. Taste of coffee, chocolate and a bit roasty. A very nice porter, that’s easy to drink.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle from Vaaland, Bryne. Pours thick, black with a firm medium tan head that dissipates quickly, weak lacing. Aroma is somewhat dissapointing, a bit thin some pastry and chocolate milk. A little metallic on the taste initially, but very characteristic porter flavours of chocolate, coffee and malts. Hops are noticable but not intrusive, also a bit of ice-coffeeon the palate. Dosen’t last very long. All in all, a fairly decent porter, but not very exciting or very memorable, just a little more than ok.

7th November 2011
On tap at Cask Pub & Kitchens Norwegian Beer Festival. Opaque black beer, little tan head. Served from a jug in the fridge as it was a bit lively out of the tap! Smooth palate, silky. Smooth dark malt, no roast or bitterness. A suprisingly fruity tang in this one - melon and raspberry! Mild lactose. Fades away quickly in to not very much which is a shame - great start, startling mid, very weak finish.
