COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The old farm breweries of Norway made special beers - dark, hearty, earthy beers like this classic porter - for weddings christenings, funerals or any occasion at all. Haandbryggeriet makes living beer, not pastuerized nor filtered. But re-fermented in the bottle to create a natural carbonation.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2013 Bottle, as Sundvolden Porter. It pours an unclear, brown body and a minimal sized beige head. The aroma has a lot of licorice, with roasted malts, coffee and some hoppy resins. Chocolate, roasted malts and licorice in the flavor, finishing with roasted malts kind of bitterness. Smooth on the palate, quite dry. A pleasant and tasteful one, would like to have it again. Rating: 7-3-7-4-15-3.6. 120914

Bottle, as Sundvolden Porter. It pours a dense, finger-thick beige head over an almost black body. Coffee dominates the aroma, blended by some chocolate and piney hops. Soft on the palate, with a nice carbonation level. Roaste malts, chocolate, coffee and both hoppy and roasted bitteness in the flavor. Some faintly sourish notes, just like in a cup of coffee. Lasting finish. A pleasant and tasteful beer I could easily have a few of. 130216
