3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big brown lasting head. Opaque black body goes deep dark brown
at edge with floaties. Roasty earthy chocolatey aroma with
coffee resiny notes. Dry-sweet roasty earthy coffee taste with
resiny wooden notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish
oily chocolatey roasty aftertaste with resiny coffee notes.
Excellent! Full of flavour and highly drinkable. Has no
connection with 1720s porter (which was sour), but lovely
anyway. (0.33l bottle, from wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2014 Tap @ Nordic
Dark reddish cola brown beer with toasty head leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma has roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and loafy bread. Flavor has licorice, chocolate, coffee and general sweetness. Finish is intensely bitter for a while, then a longer finish is mild with dry roastiness, sweetness and some alcohol. Palate is medium full and slick. Nice sweet porter with kinda reminiscent of some brown ales.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A bit brown head but black color dominates. Toffee and bitterness can be found in aroma. Malty taste with hints of coffee and chocolate. Creamy and rich aftertaste. Easy to imagine as a 17th century beer - in a good way.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Vinmonolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a deep brown, ruby-hued near-black body with a large creamy off-white head. Lovely looks. Nose is mild roasty caramel, chocolate and hints of nuts and biscuits. Taste is well-rounded brown malt tones, roasted bread, coffee and hints of sweet grains in the back. Full body, medium carbonation. A thoroughly drinkable and highly balanced historicallly version of the English brown porter, one of the most impressive interpretations I’ve had in quite some time. Excellent work by Beer Here, cheers Mr. Andersen! :-)
