2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Flaske 0,33l. Fortært i Skibotn 20 Des 13. Ultramørk amber. Veldig lavt skum. Anonym aroma. Med litt velvilje aner et litt røstet malt i ettersmaken men totalt en skuffelse.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark clear brown with bit ruby, head goes so fast that it practically is just ring of lacing on top at most. Dry malty aroma is earthy with bread and grain. Semidry and light in body and feel, low carbonation, medium long malty finish, bit berries here also. Seemed bit uninteresting to me, sorry.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well this is indeed a fascinating Porter, from the impressive backstory about the shipwreck recovered yeast to the nice sweet chocolate coffee finish. Aroma is very impressive, flavorful with caramel, coffee, and roasting malt notes, appetizing. Appearance is a nice translucent off-black. Flavor is distinctive, unusually sweet, with touches of coffee and roasted malt. Maybe some subtle hoppiness. Quite enjoyable, with the exception of the thin palate throughout. Give it a try if you ever come across this.

33cl bottle. Dark brown color, soapy, off white head. Orange peel, malt and some veggy-like notes in aroma. Wtf! Flavor is smilar with orange peel, malt, mild roastedness, caramel notes. Not good by any means. Weird brew.

Can’t see why this beer should be on the list of beers to try before you die. It has nothing special.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Dark reddish brown color, weak head. Grainy maltis and liquorice-like roastedness with salty/seaweedy notes. Dryish grainy, slightly sour bready flavor. Light bitterness and slightly salty finish. Quite round but slightly flat texture. Cask version could be more interesting.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle, 4.5 % abv, bought at Kjeller 5 in Tromsø. Noisy pour gradually revealing a crystal clear brown coloured body topped by a fair, beige head. Fragile lacing. Mid-roasted and mid sweet malty smell, mild liquorice to it. Malty taste of dark caramel, earth and nuts followed by bittersweet dark fruits towards the ending. Medium to thin bodied. Just alright on a Saturday afternoon relaxing at home, 25.01.2014.
