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.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not a very aromatic beer with hints of sweet malt and som roast. The appearance is black with a small beige cappucino head that stays all the way. It has taste of caramel, dark chocolate and some roasty coffee in the end. Feels very oily and slightly creamy, and a bit thin in the mouth. Overall a good porter, but not as thick and creamy as the more fullbodied around.

Sötaktig doft. Mycket söt smak av kaffe och choklad. Något tunn kropp men en småhet eftersmak. En ganska stabil vardagsporter.

Black with light brown head - aroma is of roasted malt - taste is of some sweet malt in the back, but most flavour is of roasted malt that lingers for some time into the finish - good and tasty
