3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013 Pours black with beautiful medium head, leaving a lacing on glass when detracting. Aroma is somewhat different than recent porters I?ve had, this one is hoppy with mild notes of chocolate. Fruity/floral as well. Taste is quite bitter, fruity and very mild chocolate. Decent palate, medium body.

Taste is dark malts, hops, pine needles, leafs, burnt caramel, grass, coffee. Medium to longlasting bitterness. Fair enough, think this one is more like a black IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Biggish brown head. Clear deep dark red body. Earthy spicy
gooseberry aroma with peppery notes. Dry-sweet earthy wooden
chocolatey taste with gooseberry pepper notes. Mid-bodied.
Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish spicy chocolatey resin aftertaste
with sooty burnt coffee notes. Licorice and fruit, too. The
aftertaste is full, rich, vivid, and really lifts the beer
several notches. (0.33l bottle, from wine monopoly, Strømmen.)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bought at Vinmonopolet Tromsø Sentrum. Nice to look at with its deep dark ruby body colour topped by a firm, bubbly, fawn-coloured head that stays and laces well. Promising smell of succulent fruity hops with a touch of pine and with mid-sweet malts beneath. Fine mixed flavours of dark berries and dark fruits joined by rye and liquorice. Roasted backbone. In-depth malt bitter finish. Smooth. Enjoyed on Halloween at home with nuts and fruits for the kids and a good ale for the old man (Tromsø 31.10.2013).
