50cl bottle from Varnaveien mineralvann. Pours very dark, almost black, with a tan head. Roasty aroma with chocolate, dark fruits, malt and hints of coffee, vanilla and wooden smoke. Medium body. Medium sweet with a lightly dry and spicy finish. Well balanced and enjoyable.

DruncanVeasey (7423) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2015
Bottle from...Rimi Bergen or Voss Vinmonopolet. Deep mahogany approaching pitch with a fat cappuccino mousse. Impressive fresh squished blackberry, blackcurrant and distant ashtray aroma. Deeply juicy flavour, again awash with red/black berry fruit. mildly soapy, citrus-hinting cafetiere dregs finish clinging with roast. Blueberries in bitter chocolate and the citrus of coffee beans. Slick, mildly fizzing condition. Really quite beautiful.

metalspice (219) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2015
Nesten helt svart med høyt lysbrunt skum. Sterk aroma med røstet kaffe sammen med sterke fruktige nyanser. Smaker kaffe sammen med noen treaktige toner. Bitter grapefrukt mot slutten. Litt vannaktig munnfølelse.

tfredvik (1297) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2014
Deep copper body with a quite large, creamy, long-lived, tan head that leaves a good amount of foam on the glass. Rather strong aroma of slightly burnt malt, coffee, ash and fruits. Nothing special here, but the flavour is much more interesting. It starts out as expected with dark roasted notes, ash and coffee, but then lots of lovely hoppy notes pops up in the finish: I get tropical fruits, grapefruit and pine. It’s far away from a BIPA, but it’s definitely hoppier than many porters. And also more ashy and less chocolatey than many beers of this style. The taste is light sweet and the long-lasting (surprisingly hoppy) finish is moderate to light bitter. Mid-bodied, dry on the palate, moderate carbonation. Brilliant!
[50 cl bottle, batch 23, enjoyed 2 months before BB date, from Meny Alna, Oslo]

Really great porter! Loads of coffee, well balanced, silky feeling and dark roasted malty flavors.

Wischylini (151) - Grimstad, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2014
Pours dark brown, almost black, with a decent dark-tan head. The aromas are roasted grain, smoke, coffee, liquorice and burnt bread. The taste is moderately sweet, and quite bitter. The mouthfeel is a bit thin as you’d expect from a low-strength beer of this variety, and the carbonation is medium.

Flaske fra meny Vågsbygd. Mørk brun, uklar fsrge. Lys beige skumtopp. Smaker mørkbrent malt, røyk, lakris,kaffe. Veldig god porter til å være butikkøl. En fornøyelig overaskelse
