COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

English: Brewed for the World Championship of Sheep Shearing in Bjerkreim 2008.

larsga (6323) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2011
Medium brown head. Nearly opaque black body goes deep dark red at edges. Roasty burnt coffee aroma with earthy mealy minty notes. Dry-sweetish roasty minty grainy taste with burnt chocolate notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish mouthfeel. Clean, fresh palate. Dry roasty resiny earthy aftertaste with metallic burnt cold coffee notes. Very nice and drinkable, but perhaps a little austere. (0.33l bottle, Centra Majorstuen, Oslo.)

daje (2609) - NORWAY - JUL 11, 2011
Bottle picked up at Centra. Close to black, good beige head. Lighly roasted aroma with coffee notes and berries. Taste is very similar, to me it loses a bit out on taste by having a low abv. Would have liked this a bit stronger with a bit more body.

gyllenbock (5031) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2011
On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger in June 2011. Black with a creamy head. Roasted aroma with malt, caramel, coffee and some light notes of hops. The same in the taste. Good but not excellent. Very easy to drink.

esp0r (2128) - NORWAY - JUN 7, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown, black in glass, very thin offwhite head, lacings is not very pleasent. Aroma of coffee and chocolate, hints of prunes. Body is quite malty, not much sweetness. Quite dry mouthfeel. Finish is super hoppy and quite bitter. Nice

tmrmwel (1058) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2011
Bottle. Pours black, with a big, airy head. Good aroma with notes of burned malt, candi sugar and some dark fruit. Pleasant acidic taste of burned malt, which gives a dry, lasting aftertaste.

berlinoise2go (626) - 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 (4237) - 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 (240) - Sola, 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.

   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 17/20
StoreMy (29) - 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 (4616) - 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.
