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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. It pours a light reddish dark brown body and a small, off-white to beige head. Quite roasted aroma, coffee, some chocolate and some roasted bread. Sweet flavour, yet dry on the palate. Full body, pleasant carbonation, and a fine bitterness towards the end. Roasted malts, coffee and some dark chocolate too in the end. A tasteful, pleasant beer that goes well with a dark chocolate cake. 120906
