Bottle, årgang 2007. Dark dark brown body. Moderate creamy head. Aroma like a strong lager. A lot of malt. Heavy sweet malty flavour. A bit too sweet and hints of alcohol. Short and very sweet finish. (Trondheim, 03.04.07)

Dark brown in color no head what s ever. In fact flet and tasted very flat. There as a deep dark malt flavor almost winter beer type. Had lots of great chocolate and coffee flavors. This can be a great beer if I did not get an old bottle.

1997 nip, provided by none of that Kramer himself. Pours totally flat black with brown highlights. Aroma is old, chalky, fishy. Flavor is not much more. No carbonation at all, slightly soured. There is little enjoyable left about this beer. I’ll have to rerate with a fresh sample, eh.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2013 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain/nuts, husks), with light notes of tree bark and cardboard. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Dull and uninspiring.

A very thin and dim color of brown with almost no film formed. The porter was bland with little sweetness and watered down coffee flavor.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
2006 Vintage - Almost black body, quite big light brown head, some laces; Simple, very grainy nose, some dry grass as well, not the least interesting; sweet, bitter simple body, with a watery texture; short finish with some bitterness and quite some molasses aroma to it together with a lot of grain. Very boring beer, I couldn’t even be bothered to finish it!
