500 mL bottle. As "Barrel Aged Porter" with a different lablel than the one pictured. Nice looking beer; stout-dark, but with a weird reddish tint to it. Medium brown head. Smells like a roasty, chocolatey porter that has been aged in a barrel. And that’s what it tastes like, as well. Just enough barrel to make its presence felt, without overwhelming the other flavours. Nice, creamy mouthfeel. A well-constructed beer.

God duft av kaffe, mye lakris og noe sjokolade. Dyp sort farge. Tynt brunt skum, mest langs kant. God smak av lakris og en anelse sjokolade.

Cimeria 14-12-13. Cuerpo fuerte pastoso y color negro intenso con espuma algo oscura no muy persistente. Aromas a tostados y café seguido de cebada nordica y licor de hervaceos. Sabores tostados y quemados algo ahumados cl principio seguido de cierto sabor a licor hervaceo unido a sensación alcohólica bastante intensa. Una porter fantástica que según calienta va ganando densidad acentuado los sabores maltosos tostados y quemados seguido de ese toque final de licor seco hervaceo y alcohólico. Me gusto más que la Odin. Muy buena muy buena, imprescindible repetir.

Torrefacto (911) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 22, 2013
Color caoba muy oscuro con espuma beige densa y abundante. Aromas tostados, madera y frutas confitadas. En boca, con densidad media-alta, entra suave y sedosa aportando un ligero dulzor que pronto pasa a un amargor tostado y seco muy equilibrado. Excelente.

500ml bottle @Cimmeria. Roasty, liquor, some funky aromas. Pours black with nice tan head, persistent, some lacing.Medium body, soft carbonation, silky texture. Taste is roasty, some subtle sourness, berries, liquor notes. Well balanced, smooth, dark, robust, potent beer. Very enjoyable.

Bottle from Belmont Station, Portland. Pours very dark, good amount of thick tan head. Aroma is superb, lots of aquavit, spruce,wood, some roasty notes, chocolate, coffee, wow. Body is medium, with some roasty characteristics. Finish is surprisingly sweet with a lingering clean boozy, almost medicinal character. Really nice.

deyholla (8114) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours near black with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has dark fruits, roasted malts and bitter chocolate with a hint of booze. Flavor starts with bitter chocolate and roasted malts and has a hint of dark fruit, barrel and light spice.

Bottle shared by Derek- thanks! Pours black w think brown head. Nose is lighter than expected: oak, malt n some heat. Taste has loads of, rich malts and the barrel lends a unique herby oakyness
