Batch 225 / Bottled 15.09.09 / Bottle 2160
5/04/2011: Hand bryggeriet Barrel-Aged Porter (Norwegian Porter Aged in Aquavit Barrels)... Aroma: German chocolate diluted with coconut water with a splash of Kisrchwasser. Appearance: Black color, frothy broth head. Flavor: Dark chocolate cocoa, smooth alcohol, barrel char, plenty of alcohol that adds a nice strength and warmth without becoming burning or stringent, milky sake notes, cigar in the finish. Drinks like a cigar. Palate: Medium, strong, but smooth. Overall: Excellent brew! Delicious!

500mL from Vendome Liquor Beverly Hills. Inky pour with larger, complete tan foam. Excellent retention and big swathes of lacing. Nose is volatile detergent, smoke, steak, orange perfume, tar. Taste is quite dusty and acidic, raw bitter cocoa but also paper and water. Not the greatest.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Deep brown/black body. Creamy, tan head. Aroma of wood, smoke tobacco, roasted malts, chocolate, moss. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter and lightly to moderately acidic. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Green wood, tart taste along with chocolate, raspberry and citrus. Fairly boozy in the finish. Different and interesting and I enjoyed the first six ounces, but it got tiring after that.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pitch black with a coffee tinge for the head. Has a very different smell, hints of coffee and the smell of akevitt. Mellow on the palate at first, followed by coffee a hint of sweetness. Really warms on the aftertaste. A very decent porter.
