3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cL bottle. Pours pitch black with a thick, creamy and chocolate brown head. Light fruity, hard roasted malt, breadish, vague liqourice and vague sugarish aroma. Liqourice, dark chocolate, mild coffee and breadish roasted malt. Vague sweetness nicely counterbalanced by a good bitterness. Vague roasted acidity too. Fennel spiced finish. Smooth and solid flavourful brew, a bit too much fennel.

Drunk to celebrate my rating number 21,300. Bottled. A pitch black beer with a huge dark brown head. The aroma has notes of sweet and roasted malt, bread, and a bit of spice. The flavor is quite sweet with notes of coffee, bread both newly cut and some toasted, sweet and roasted malt, and just a hint of spice, leading to a dry toasted finish.

Bottle 50 cl. Pours pitch black with a gigantic and firm brown head with excellent retention - simply the best looking beer I’ve had for ages! Hard roasted malt aroma - but sweet and enticing. Some alcohol also. Solid body, Roasted malts and lots of both chocolate and licorice. A discreet malt bitterness. Amazingly well crafted and well composed. Seriously guys, this is the new Ølfabrikken Porter! 250909

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Pitch black colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is very sweetish sour liquorice along with roasted malts, coffee and mild alcohol. Flavour is spices, liquorice and quite much roasted malts and coffee. Feels way more burning alcoholic in the flavour than 7.5 sounds...Otherwise very nice.

Opaque black beer. Good tan head. Minerally dark chocolate on the nose. Semi soft palate, a little dry. Pretty light for a 7.5% porter. Dark chocolate, a little cream. Subtle spice and fruit. Minerals and a touch of roasted malt. Not a shouty beer but has nice subtle flavours. Finishes dry and soft with minerals and dark chocolate. Very well joined up porter.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Ølbaren
Black color; generous creamy head. Dusty aroma, cardboard, ashes and burnt malt; later, it’s more perfumy, soapy. The mouthfeel is smooth, there is strong flavor of roasted malts, but supported by a light residual sweetness, with chocolate and traces of caramel, molasses, and liquorice. The final is balanced, with this mix of roasted malt and chocolate, still quite bold. Not my favorite style, but it’s well brewed.
