INteresting, thought it was going to be a fake success but it was real good even though it was over reccomended temperature.

Bottle. Brown pour with tan head. Roasted malt aromas. Dark bitter roasted malts, brewer’s liqourice, better coffee. A little disappointing after all the hype..

Bottle from Puddintane. Think it’s from 09/2007? Pours viscous black with no head. Light brown lacing. Small aroma of mostly just roasted malts, a little coffee and chocolate. Taste is somewhat oxidized dark roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate. Good amount of brown sugar. Probably better when fresh.

really nice head, lacing, off brown, just like porter should have the body is black. Aroma is of roasted and burned malts. stoutish coffie aroma without caramel sweetness, (ok, maybe some), taste is very dry and bitter, smoked, dense taste, after first dry and smoked sips it goes more smoothly but still every tate you feel the strong smoke (cigarette, cigar smoke), smells factory hehe

Sweetish-Malty beginning. Intense malty with a very sticky sweetish body. Hints of sourness, intense sweetish with roasty coffee-like aroma. Sweetish-malty aftertaste, fresh but sticky, intense. Nice!

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2009 Swing top bottle. Opague, dark brown creamy head. Roasted malt and a hint of smoke and dark chocolate in the aroma. Malty, medium to full bodied, very powerful porter. Loads of roast, hints of beechwood and cacao. Dark roasted espresso. Heavy stuff, although you really can’t taste much alcohol. 8 4 7 4 16 = 3.9
Can @ RBESG Grand Tasting 2009. The Old Swing top bottle version is history, so this one will count for the rating. Almost black and opague. Roast and apple syrup in the aroma and flavor. Roastbitter finish with some aluminium. Still quite OK, but in no way comparable to the ’old’ Olfabrikken.

Opaque, black with a dark brown head that has an orange hue. Caramel, licorice, coffee, smoke, and milk in the aroma. Not as complex on the palate as the aroma. The alcohol and its warmth outshines the other components. Chalky on the palate and quite thin in body. The hop flavor, which is tropical, shows itself as the beer warms and there is an almost chilli powder-like flavor throughout.

0.5 l bottle. Black color with dark tan head. Roasted aroma with solvent and green apple. Salty licorice, whisky, sharp alcohols, burnt sugar, chocolade and coffee in the flavor. Whisky-coffee finish. Fairly bitter.

The aroma is malty and burned it looks dark. The flavor is of too much coffee, although it gets better all the time - it also has a nice flavor of laqurice.
