3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deilig sjokolade-/kaffesmak. God munnfølelse, men dabber av litt vel fort etter min smak.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 0,5 l at home enyoing my win in tonights poker. About the beer, pours brown/black with small head. Aroma is mild malt, mild chocolate and probably coffee. Taste is very mild coffee and notes of chocolate. Thin stuff, but at least there is a slight chocolate and light bitterness in the aftertaste. Nothing special. Im almost giving up on porters, its just not for me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A partly successful soft porter from Ægir. Mine was on bottle from local shop. Appearance coca-cola, very little head, too lightly carbonated for my preference. A little dead, but it is Halloween! Taste friendly, light, hints of coofee and malts. Okay aftertaste. All in all a friendly encounter, and sympathic, light, alcoholweak porters in ordinary shops is all in all a soft legacy of the norwegian beer miracle.
