On tap @Christianssand Brygghus. Body is dark brown to black. Low creamy light brown head. Faint choco and dark bread in the aroma. Also som roasty and hoppy tones. Taste is on the bitter side of bitter-sweet. Good malt body, featuring caramel, chocolate and a distinct roastiness. Surprisingsly light in body. Balanced malty-bitter ending. [01.12.12]

Very dark brown, thin head.
Nice bittersweet flavour, smoke, liquorice, bread crust. Spot on porter, no need to adjust this, should have a broad appeal.
