Meh. Not too much taste. Not impressed.
Drink another porter. Nice colour. Unfortunately, taste and colour doesn't match in this case.

"wish list cross off. a nice porter indeed. very roasty, w/some chocolate and hoppt notes as well, well balanced. would be elite if the feel wasn’t too prickly, but that can happen with bottle conditioned brews..."

Mørk fyldig øl, mye innslag av mørk sjokolade, oppleves som fyldig og litt røyk smak sammen med bittersmak.....

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown pour with a big, fluffy head. Aroma is big on roasted malts, a little chocolate. Taste is slightly sweet in the beginning with that chocolate note and finishes roasty and dry. Little bit thin but still coats the mouth nicely. Overall a very good porter.
