COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.)

metalspice (274) - 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.

BarryKonrad (107) - NORWAY - DEC 29, 2014
Pours deep dark brown with a tan head that slowly but never quite disappears. Aroma is chocolate and lactose. Mouthfeel is medium but slightly creamy. Flavour of milk chocolate, some roasted malts, and a half-dry lactic finish with some coffee notes. Decent porter.

Maakun (1486) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2014
Black with big creamy beige head, looks great. Light fruity, smoke, roasted malts, some ash and espresso. Light dry taste with just a light sweet touch and clean and fruity bitter finish. Light to medium bodied with light creamy feel. Nice fruity porter.

jmgreenuk (5716) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle from the Mini Pris in downtown Alesund. Poured a deep mahogany with a frothy broken light tan head. The aroma is roasted malt, toffee caramel, coffee, grassy hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a light grass hop pepper spice palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A superb flavour packed beer. More like a black IPA than a porter for me though.
