2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light brown flathead, jet black body, small kitchen curtains inside my mug.
Aroma; caramel malts, chocolate, grassy hops. Taste; fruity malts, plum peel, chocolate and coffee, cocoa note, apple, nut. Fruity normal on palate. Fruity finish with apple peel. Varied journey in taste. Maitokauppaoluttyyliin? hehe, nice beer with modest abv for norwegian/finnish shop regulations. Very much fruit notes for being a porter.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
24.12.2013. Musta olut, miedossa tuoksussa makeaa mallasta ja kaakaota. Maussa lievää paahteisuutta, hieman suklaata ja jälkimaku jättää kuivahkon kaakaon maun. Maitokauppaoluttyyliin hieman vetinen ja hiilihapot tuntuvat voimakkailta makuun nähden.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with smoky thin head and slight lacing. Sweet licorice, raisins, some wine-notes, bit berries. Light and crisp, semisweet, bitter lasting to medium long finish, bit coffee and chocolate. Ok aroma but bit too light and lacks in flavors.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle. What a funny name, nothing could go wrong there or…. Dark brown body with a big, dense, long lasting beige head. Aroma has dark malt, coffee and liquorice. Not bad in the nose, but the flavor doesn’t live up to this. Sweet, dark malt, toast, liquorice and molasses, low bitterness. Seems fair on the paper, but it’s too weak all the way and feels plain and uninspired. Medium to thin body and rather short in aftertaste, mostly sweet chocolate flavored malt.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours dark with a full foamy head. Has a taste of roasted coffee, a little bit bitter with a lot of carbonation. Maybe just a tad bit watery, so it could be more. Still enjoyed this beer ok, though would not go out of my way to get it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Black color with a big beige head, that soon vanish into a beige layer. Dark malt, some perfume, bready and a bit fruity. Medium body. A bit to rich carbonated. Fizzy mouth feeling. Moderate sweet and a moderate bitterness. Dark malt, some coffee and bready. The high carbonation destroyed it a bit. Had a hard time getting it out. Well it did not get much better anyway. A bit mild porter.
