1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled. A hazy deep red beer with a thin fast disappearing brown head. The aroma has notes of plastic and burnt Samsø malt - not good. The flavor is acidic with notes of malt, caramel, burnt plastic, and cooked vegetables - flawed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle bought at a local "hypermarket" - batch 949, best before march 2011.
Pours a very dark brew, with a reddish tint. Builds a solid half inch of beige/light brown head. It’s got a "fresh" smell, quite "dark", sweet and chocolate-y. The taste is full of licorice, but yet kinda fruity with hints of berries and a tiny bit of chili in the outer regions! The bitter-sweet-balance tilts towards bitter, yet there is a nice bit of sweetness to this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
07.03.2010, 0,5l Bottle. Thanks to Sven R. L! Dark brown, almost black colour with off.white head. Aroma is dominated by dark roasted malt with a dry bitterness. Nice flavours for a beer only having 4,5 percent alcohol. Body is a little thin, but the bitterhops gives this porter a porter taste. Nice one.

Bottle, 50cl, from Fenaknoken, Oslo. BB Aug 2010, batch 921. Huge beige head, leaving a persistent lacework. Clear dark/black reddish brown colour. Fruity, malty, slightly sour aroma. Stout-like dryness, quite watery, but ok considering the ABV. Dry, lasting finish. Nice.

500 ml bottle - thanks for the ankle roll clint!! dark brown pour with foamy tan head; aromas of sweet roasted malts with some chocolate; texture is thin and comes off as a very light porter; quite a bit of sweetness in the front with the roast taking a back sweet; yummy

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle, unfiltered and unpasteurised, brygg 914, bought at Fenaknoken in Oslo. Solid, off-white foam stand that left spotty lacing on the glass. Nice, deep ruby-brown body. Firm malty aroma, tolerable sweet. Medium roasted and mid-sweet dark malts in flavour with rounded bitterness in the aftermath. Fine made brew, with ingredients that work well together Pleasant on the swallow (hotel room, 18.08.2009).
