London Porter - has a lot to offer your tastebuds, this porter includes generous amounts of chocolate malts to render a mild roasty flavour but still a nice intensity. In addition we use balanced amounts of crystal malts and flavouring hops for a good fruitiness and aroma. To be served at 9-12 degrees C. Bottle conditioned - unfiltered and unpasteurised, no artificial carbonation. (Not to be confused with the stronger Haandbryggeriet Porter.)

mikeyo1 (487) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2015
bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with a lasting beige head. Dry, roasted and delicate aroma of chocolate, coffee, marmalade, maltiness, flowers, caramel, some herbs and red fruits. Medium bodied, semi dry and smooth flavor. Taste of chocolate, orange marmalade, toffee, herbs, biscuits, bread. Dry finish with fruity coffee and some ash and nuts. Balanced bitterness. A Nicely balanced classic porter, with perhaps a bit of a short taste duration.

mariuszek (702) - Gdynia, POLAND - SEP 17, 2015
Dark brown, rich and durable beige head. Nicve roasty aroma with some chocolate. Taste is crips, sour-sweet and roasty. According to my experience, one of very few drinkable beers available when Vinmonopolet is closed or far away.

asimeow (234) - Sandsli, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2015
0,5l bottle. BBD 12.1.2016. Batch 832. Extremely tall caramel head. Black. Aroma of yeast and licorice. Slightly metallic. Flavour is a solid porter. Licorice, malt, and slightly astringent. It is highly carbonated, more than expected. All in all, this is a good porter.

metalspice (389) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2015
Nesten helt svart med massivt lysbrunt skum. Ristet malt dominerer lukten sammen med noe kaffe og litt fruktighet. Kaffe og mørk sjokolade i smaken med en fin og tørr bitterhet mot slutten. Over gjennomsnittet med kullsyre.

Veldig flat og nøytral på smak. Lite fremtredende sjokoladesmak, som øl'et skal ha. Kjedelig porter, har alt for lite fylde i smaken. Vil dog kunne passe bra til mat, siden den er så lett å drikke og nøytral på smak.
