Aroma is some nice smokey porter notes with light chocolate and dark chocolate. Pours brown with white lacing. Taste is a nice roasty chocolate porter. The mouth feel is very thin and is almost confusing. Tastes like a porter and feels like a brown ale. Could probably drink many of these.

Bottle batch 527. Black with a thick creamy good lacing light brown head. Smells like bacon, smoke and chalk. The smoke isn’t as dominating in the aroma as expected from the smell. Chocolate, espresso, vanilla. Taste is medium sweet and light/medium bitter. Medium/full body, oily/creamy texture, soft carbonation. Pretty smooth, want more.

0.5l bottle as Sundvollen Porter. Oh, this one is really deep deep brown and oily in the pour and it has a really nice big lasting ashy-chocolate almost creamy top. Looks as good as they come. And on the nose this is really heavy roasted, mountains of rich chocolate, there are woody vanilla beans and coconut tones here as well and I also get a subtle hint of acidity. Probably from the burned malts. Anyhow, it smells really nice this one. It has a really comfortable small prickling carbonation level that prickles all the way down my throat, and the mouthfeel is quite rich and almost chewy. In the taste I get tons of bitter and sweet chocolate malts, it’s quite roasted as well and the coffee shines through in the finish. Almost a bit milky in the taste actually, and I guess it can bear recemblence of a strange offspring of chocolate milk, stout and coffee. Really tasty like in lot’s of flavor, but also like in I really like the flavors. Amazing that they have managed to create such a rich and full-bodied beer with only 6.5% alcohol. It actually also has a hint of smoke blended in with all that chocolate-coffee in the lingering aftertaste. Great stuff again from the boys from Drammen. I’m stocking up on this one! 19.09.2012
0.5l bottle from #527. Not every day you get to sample a new one from Haandbryggeriet, and considering all the trouble and hard work I spent on the pre 2012 version, I’m quite excited to try this one. It pours a deep dark brown body with a small fading and light islandy bubbly chocolate top. The nose is filled with caramelly malts, some dry chocolate, some earth, a little bit of roastiness and some gymnastic hall. Smells quite interesting and unique, but definitely within the non-extreme category. It has a nice average carbonation level and a smooth oily mouthfeel. Nice flavors. A bit more punch here than in the aroma, with chocolate malts, a soft roastiness. It’s well hopped indeed, and I also get traces of something mildly smoked and a flavor I choose to call "wild". Not like in directly sour, but in that typical Haandbryggeriet yeast-profile often found in their dark beers. Quite, no make that really smooth drinking this, and most definitely highly enjoyable. Highly recommended by a little boy that founds this brewery quite much. 30.11.2012

500ml bottle, batch 527, at Vertshuset Skarven, shared with Elisabeth and Stefan. Fair tan-coloured head over a near, coal black body. Aroma of dry liquorice and coffee. Ashy dark malty taste providing notes of coffee grounds and grain leading to a roasted bittersweet finish. Smooth and dry in the mouth. Likable (Tromsø, 20.04.2013).

Pours ebony with a massive head of tiny bubbles. Aromas of roast and chocolate. Smooth, creamy body with an initial hit of smoke (reminds me of rauch malt/schlenkerla) followed by dark chocolate, roasty coffee, and a lingering of earthy hops. Very smooth and balanced, just with it was fresh. Oxidized notes of aluminum in finish.
