3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet, Oslo. Black/dark brown colour. Inch-thick beige head, good retention, leaves a thick bubbly film and considerable lacing. Sugary, malty aroma with wood, tobacco, lactose, chocolate, coffee, licorice. Medium body, average carbonation, syrupy mouthfeel. Semi-sweet, rich woody-malty taste that grows drier towards a licorice-dominated finish. Well-balanced, perhaps a bit too sugar-rich. Long aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Very dark brown colour, nearly black, creamy tan head. Very malty aroma, with notes of molasses, mild coffee, chocolate and liquorice. Lovely malty flavour, with the same elements as in the aroma, but not too sweet. Some earthy hops are noticeable, but the bitterness is low. A fine example of the style!

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.)
