Flam hotel with dinner. Really powerful flavor at 4.7% - tons of burnt chocolate malt and dirt. Great. Had a few of these. Our server warned me that THIS beer would make me hungover. I laughed and ordered one more, which I brought back to the room for a nightcap. Woke up the next day feeling great and ran to Flam church and back (7k) before breako.

Bottle from grocery store in Lillehammer, Norway. Pours dark brown with a generous white head that doesn’t last longer than the first sip. Aroma is milk chocolate and coffee. Medium mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly roasted malts and some chocolate, mildly bitter. It’s decent for the abv, a porter on the lighter side of everything, but easy to drink. Just ok.
