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.

Wischylini (123) - Grimstad, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2013
UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 Pours a clear dark brown, with a small tan head that fades away quickly. The aromas are roasted and mild. There’s some coffee, some cacao, and some roasty aromas, and they are very balanced – No one aroma sticks out more than the other. The taste is quite sweet, with a very slightly dry-ish finish. The body is medium-heavy, and the carbonation is soft. For a low strength porter, this is absolutely terrific, with it’s perfectly balanced "dark beer aromas".

mickut (274) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2013
Draught. Deep, impenetrable dark brown body with small, dense head. Lingering aftertaste that mellows from the roasted, slightly burnt start.

Deilig sjokolade-/kaffesmak. God munnfølelse, men dabber av litt vel fort etter min smak.

OleR (4786) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 25, 2008
500 ml bottle. Mostely lasting espresso head over a an opaque, dark mahogny body. Inviting aroma of cocoa powder and milk-chocolate. Notes of vanilla and dark fruits. Taste has a clean malt-sweetness. Lovely. Coffe notes, and an accent of dark dried fruits. Some mild bittering hops underneath. A filling beer considering the low abv. Likeable, powerful and moreish.

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.

Draft at Khyber Pass. Tulip. Very dark brown pour. Large tan head. Silky body. Lots of dark roasted malts. Cocoa. French coffee. Plum pudding. Charcoal chocolate milk. Only very light smoke. Soft and dark. Quite nice actually.

tykjen (182) - Florø, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2007 On tap at the brewpub 28.07.07. Ok head and carbonation. Very dark with only a faint glow of red. The aroma is dominated of roasted and burnt, acrid notes from the malt. Rich fruitiness from the yeast. Slighly sweet finish with nice, clean bitterness, alcohol and dark, dried fruits. A bit thin in the mouth. A good porter, but the roastiness takes a bit too much of the focus form this porter. A fantastic combination with the chocolate and raspberry cake at the brewery. 04.08.07: According to the brewer the one I tasted was only 4,7% due to fermentational difficulties.
