4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Una birra porter di alto livello. Scura, densa, con schiuma poco persistente.
Profumo intenso di liquirizia con sentori floreali. Aroma di cioccolato, caffè, liquirizia con finale di fiori e persistenza di liquirizia. Gradevolmente amara ma senza essere stucchevole. Birra da collezione !

Dark brown pour gusher of a head off white head thick lacing. Aroma is chocolate and oatmeal joint of raison. Definitely some light alcohol notes. Avg palate a bit over carbonated. Flavor is a bit off from the carb some roasty malts a hint of chocolate and oatmeal and a light grass finish.

2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2012 Pours a clear dark color with a small off white head. Smells like caramel and Munich malts. After that this beer tastes watery and like flat soda water.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark brown. Fizzy carbonation. Thin, dry. Bitter, but quite low on both aroma and taste. Red fruit, coffee and some malt aroma. Carbonation and watery mouth feel actually reminds me of soda water. Too little of everything, but the little aroma and taste it brings make it ok. Just ok.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle, 5.2% abv, carried back home from Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo. Beige head with a solid foamy stand. Good spotty lacing down the glass. Unclear, dark red-brown. Welcoming half-sweet aroma of mocha chocolate. Chocolate, nuts and oatmeal to the taste buds added by subdued yeasty notes. Smooth, dry and sweet to the finish. Likable. Shared with Finn (Tromsø, 04.10.2012).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - Sweet chocolate and alcohol on the nose. Opaque dark brown with a creamy but small persistent head. Nice roasted malts and chocolate with coffee on the finish. Palate is very watery, which is nice if you don’t want that heavy feeling, but is odd with such robust flavours. Very nice, will likely have many more.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours very dark, almost black, with a huge tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and wood with hints of licorice, fruits and spices. Quite dry and malty with a light bitterness in the finish. Medium body. Pleasant, and a bit unusual porter.

Negra oscura, de espuma ingobernable. Viscosa y muy gasificada. De aroma y sabor muy complejos: chocolate tostado ligeramente ahumado. Brutal!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the crazy september release in Vika 2012
Pours brown, almost black in glass, red hue, big tanned head. Smells of roasted malts, coffee, earthy hops, yeast and small hints of peat. Moderate sweet, quite dry, alot of roast and toast, also coffee. Moderate bitter, coffee and some earthy hops. Medium body, average carbonation, watery texture. A decent porter pretty true to style. I like that it’s quite dry, roasty and still easy drinkable
