Norwegian: Sorte Får, den Norske villsauen, fører de Rogalandske tradisjoner videre. Høstmarken, saueklippingen og godt brygg hører sammen. I regi av verdensmesterskapet i saueklipping her i Rogaland, har vi tilknyttet oss miljøet ved å brygge dette mørke, fyldige og smakfulle STOUT ølet på de beste råvarer.

berlinoise2go (604) - NORWAY - APR 17, 2011
Bottle from Centra, Oslo. Black with a red taint. Small light beige head with decent retention. Aroma of roasted malt, smoked wood, tar, licorice. Medium/light body, quite smooth. Average carbonation. Taste is dry and woody with coffee and raw licorice. Very nice stout.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2011
Bottle from Vaaland Spesialbutikken, Bryne. Pours a deep brown, near-black body with a medium white head. Aroma is strong mocha tones with hints of milk chocolate and coffee. Pretty nice. Taste is deep roasted malts, coffee and hints of mocha and cocoa. Yummy. Lots of flavor for a dry stout, and great "everyday beer"-contender to f.ex. Guinness. One of the few nice surprises among the low ABV beers I got from Vaaland Spesialbutikken this time around.

banii (236) - Trondheim, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2011
Bottle from Berentsens Brygghus, Egersund. A well balanced, local produced stout, and one of the only stouts available in supermarkets in (western) Norway.

StoreMy (27) - Nesttun, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2011
Den er minst like sort som Guinness og det eneste som trekker litt ned er litt lavt og lite tett skum. Lukten er nydelig. Noe mystisk lett brent, sjokolade og annet jeg ikke helt klarer å sette ord på. Smaken holder det lukten lover. Den er fyldig og god, men ikke helt på Mikkeller nivå (den er da også i en annen klasse). Ettersmaken er fin men litt i korteste laget etter min smak.

Beer4000 (4395) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2010
330 ml bottle. Dark amber, almost black body with a nice, lasting, creamy beige head – close to perfect. Aroma is strong malty, mocha, roast, liquorices and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is roasted, dark malt, quite fruity, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, mild roasted coffee and moderate bitter. Nice and really smooth, quite impressive at only 4,7 abv, like a sophisticated Guinness.

KnutAlbert (6007) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2010
Bottle. A milk stout, if you ask me, sweetish cappuchino. A bit more dryness would have let the soot and grain come through, elemenst you feel underneath. Almost, but not quite.

HenrikSoegaard (10367) - Randers, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2010
Bottle. Courtesy Yngvar. Creamy lightbrown good mostly lasting head. Almost black colour. Moderate malty and nice roasted aroma. Moderate bitter nice chocolate flavor. Average moderate bitter roasted finish. oily palate. Nice.

saxo (13796) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2010
Bottle. Nice creamy head with excellent duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are roast malt, licorice, hops and caramel. A bit watery in the finish.

Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2010
Bottled. A dark brown beer with a thin lazing thin tan head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and nuts. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, nuts, roasted malt, and a bit of phenol, leading to a dry roasted finish.

MiP (13478) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2010
Bottle, 4.7%. Good sweet liquorice aroma, also some raw liquorice. Seemingly clear dark brown colour. Small stable light brown head. The flavour has the same liquorice and some roasted coffee. Good, especially for the ABV.
