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.

LarsEngen (367) - Sandvika, - MAR 4, 2013
50 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika as Sundvolden Porter. No batch nuber on this one. Pours black with a creamy small light brown head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts and chocolate. Easy to drink porter with light sourness, light bitterness, sticky texture. Good one.

Garrold (3330) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle. Tall Boys, Leeds. Opened with a big pfft. Clear, very dark, chestnut brown. Huge, bubbly, lasting, tan head. Nose has fruity, vinous, caramel sweet malts. A hint of earthy, unwashed coffee bean. Hint of treacle. Hint of savoury smoke. Taste is sweet, fruity, smoky, and light, roast bitter. Palate is fairly full, but is let down by being way too fizzy. Any richness you might expect is spoiled by the fact it’s frothing all over the shop. Long, fruity, bitter finish. Overall, it’s ok.

rami_pl (1063) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 31, 2016
butelka, warka do 05.03.2016 (a wiec rozlana prawie dwa lata temu). brazowy, z rubinowymi przeblyskami, z bardzo bujna piana, nieco mydlanie opadajaca, ladnie brudzaca szklo. Aromaty bardzi intensywne, ciemne owoce (wisnie, sliwki suszone), kawa, czekolada, palonosc... tez jakies a la drewniano-ziemne nutki takie, moze nawet tytoniowe. w ustach slodko, ciut kwaskowato, gladko, owocowo, ze srednim wysyceniem. niewysoka goryczka popiolowa. srednio ciala, szybko znikajace z pokala. Bardzo pasuje mi rownowaga tego piwa, przechylona w strone owocowosci. klasa.

ogniskowicz (559) - POLAND - JAN 19, 2016
Aromat to potężne uderzenie czekolady, kawy i gorzkiego kakao. W smaku lekko słodko, bardzo mlecznie czekoladowo, z gorzkim kakaem, kawową kwaskowatością. Wszystko świetnie zbalansowane i na miejscu. Przepyszny porter.

lello4ever (403) - ITALY - JAN 8, 2016
Nera con schiuma beige sottile ma abbastanza persistente. Al naso malto tostato, prugne, molto intenso. Al palato fantastica, manca solo un pelo di cremositŕ, ma č molto beverina. Malto tostato, legno, cioccolato e caffč. Buona carbonazione. Ottima e complessa.

mariuspoenari (413) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
50cl bottle, best before 25.10.15 (2 months off). Pours a very dark brown, opaque brew, with a thin tan head with no retention. Smells like an aged porter, alright - heavy on dark fruit, cherries, chocolate and coffee, and a mellow note of roasted grains. The taste is quite balanced - roasted grains, cherries, dark fruit, dark chocolate and coffee. Smooth mouthfeel and almost no carbonation.

puren (447) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - DEC 12, 2015
Prezentacja:
ciemno-miedziane, raczej klarowne, bardzo obfita drobna beżowa piana, która opada do obrączki i słabo zdobi szkło;
Aromat:
alkohol, wędzona śliwka, rum, czereśnie, brzoskwinia;
Odczucie:
ciało średnie ku wysokiemu, średnio nasycone, słodki finisz, lekkie zaklejanie na podniebieniu i języku;
Smak:
słodki, śliwka, rum, lekka wędzonka śliwkowa, melasa, delikatna goryczka czekoladowa, wyraźna czekolada na końcu;
Ogólnie:
przyjemne, może troszkę zbyt stonowane.

Derbeth (588) - Kraków, POLAND - NOV 26, 2015
Bottle - brewed in March 2014, expiry date March 2016. Black colour with brown reflexes, small brown head. Aroma is very intensive dark chocolate with cherry, a little bit of ash, wood. No alcohol noticeable. Light bitterness, slightly sour. Full body, slick texture, soft carbonation. I love the smoothness and thickness of the beer, it is absolutely not too heavy. I would even like it more if it had more body - but then it wouldn’t be normal porter ;) So, being as it is - a great, great beer.

0,5 l bottle from Vinmonopolet. Aroma is malty, chocolate, roasty and raisin as far as i could find out. Taste is roasted malty caramel and chocolate. Medium bitter and medium sweet. A nice porter. Haandbryggeriet delivers again.
