4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (6% ABV). An almost opaque black beer, with a huge, frothy/creamy, lightly lacing, mostly lasting light brown head. The aroma is heavily malty (very strong coffee, roasted grain/nuts, caramel, hint of chocolate), with notes of vanilla and licorice. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, long finish with moderate bitterness, lightly alcoholic. Superor coffee porter. Awesome creamy mouthfeel, and great coffee driven nose. Good balance. At Hanndbryggeriet they know how they brew their stuff.

Thin pouring black beer with a small tan head, very low carbonation. Aroma of a nice cup of coffee, with some dark chocolate. Taste is sweet sugary coffee, some dark cocoa. Body is thin and undercarbed, feels weird...nice and creamy though. Interesting beer for sure.
