On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours black opaque with a nice looking, rather small off-white creamy head.Roasted malt aroma, light smoked bacon and tar.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Half pint at Cardinal’s "Onsdag i Annen". Pours pitch black with big frothy head. Smells of smoked/cured meats and a dominant smokey flavor with some roasted malts to back it up. Some bacon in here as well. Leans more towards a ’rauchbier’ than a smoked baltic porter in my book. The beer is however very fresh (brewed about a month ago) and might age well.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Black colour, big beige head. Strong aroma of smoked meat / bacon, also roasty notes. The flavour has also strong smokey notes, and moderate roasty notes. A bit too much "smoked meat" for my taste. Not very sweet. A "German Rauchbier meets Baltic Porter"-experience.
