4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly hazy orangey-brown, and a handsome, tan head forms nicely on top, where it remains for quite a while and leaves a satisfying lacing along the edge of the glass. Aromas on the nose are very mild, and mostly non-deScript roasty malts. Aromas in the mouth are mainly hops and a mild coffee, with a nice hint of hazelnuts. The taste is slightly sweet, and with a nice, somewhat dry, finish. The mouthfeel is very soft, due to the low carbonation. Haandbryggeriets London Porter is mild, and perhaps not interesting, taste- and aroma-wise, but it is a nice session beer, and I bet it would be a great way to introduce those who prefer pale lagers to darker beers.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
