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.

Brygg 967 500 cl fra Coop. Ikke så mye futt, dannet liten tynn skum top som forsvant raskt. Mørkt sort farge, svak røyksmak. Bitter sjokolade ettersmak, med litt syrlige toner. Liten hint av melkeromm i aromaen.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, batch #940. Aroma is roasted malts, hints of chocolate and coffee, some vanilla. Black, large light brown head. Light to medium sweetness, light bitterness, taste is coffee, coffee beans, some toffee, hints of licorice, vanilla, roasted notes. Medium body, medium to high carbonation, medium long finish with bitterness and astringency. Nice, but unbalanced, too much carbonation to my taste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of burnt wood, licorice and some coffe. Taste is much of the same, but the burnt wood is even more to significant. A little bit to much I think, but its a ok+ 4,7 porter. Ofcourse a little bit watery, but thats most of all 4,7 beers.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
