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.

kermis (4819) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2011
Bottle from Ægir Bryggeri. Pours black with tan head. Light aroma of chocolate, coffee, malts. Flavor has same aspects with a little dark fruit. Drinkable beer but a little too mild in flavor.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - MAY 25, 2011
Bottle. Pours black with brown edges, and a small, semi-fizzy tan head. Aroma is mostly sweet roasted malts, a little bit of burnt sourness, and quite a bit of dark fruitiness. A hint of cocoa. As it warms, more coffee and chocolate comes out, but not much. It’s very clean roast malt heavy. Very well balanced flavourwise. A solid sweetness is well played against the coffee note and following dryness and bitterness than the nose deceivingly didn’t give away too much of. A bit light bodied, but I’m impressed by how creamy and full this feels for 4,7%. All in all a classic, well balanced and crafted ale that I really don’t drink enough of.

Palme (3240) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2011
0.5l bottle. Pours a fizzing dark brown body with a fingersized tanned head. Nose is coffee, chocolate malt and hints of fruit. Medium + carbonation and medium bodied with a bit oily texture. Tastes a decent amount of coffee, malts with some light roasted flavors that ends rather quickly along with a sweet fruity and mild chocolate aftertaste. Another one of those low abv porters that really needs some temperature to show it’s true potential.

daje (2049) - NORWAY - MAR 5, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown to black with a tanned head. Aroma of licorice and something that reminds me of a horse. Taste is a bit roasty with more licorice. Missing a distinct finish. Good carbonation.

tfredvik (1078) - 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]

esp0r (1921) - NORWAY - JAN 30, 2011
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.
