Very nice porter with strong cola aroma. Also some coffee. A bit smokey too. Solid and good beer. Probably Norways best brewery. Not cheap either. This one was about 11$ in Norway.

Bottle - 500ml at Mondial de la Bière (Montréal, QC). Opaque black body with a thin beige foamy head. Robust malty/hoppy aroma with woody, licorice, chocolate, and spicy hints. Taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It carries oaky, yeasty, vanilla, and fruity notes. Ends with a long, warming bittersweet finish. Fantastic!

Bottle. Pours Black with a small Brownish head. Aroma of roasted malt and cafe creme. Roasty sweet flavour with a bitter hoppy finish. Very nice. Rye always seems to gice a slightly unusual element to dark beers. Like fennel seeds in a loaf of bread.
