2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
At the brewpub: Pours a dark brown with a creamy head. Weak porter aroma--kind of bready. Light pretzel flavour. Barely any hops or roasted malt. This is sessionable, but it is not a very good porter.

Draft at the source. Dark and clear ruby color. Aroma of caramel and subtle coffee. Taste starts sweet, then bitter, with some strange citrus that seems out of place.

It boasts a fruity sweetness, but the hops shine through as well. Again I wasnít all that impressed by this one. Dark brown colour, medium off-white head. (tap@brew pub)

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
On tap @ Oslo Mikrobryggeri, Oslo. Deep red-hued brown body, medium creamy off-white head. Butter in the aroma again, will it never END??? Hints of dark malts and fruits in the back. Taste is dark malts and dark fruits in the back. Taste is dark malts and butter and hints of some weird, dry parching hop-like notes. Jeez. After what Iíve been told, the reason for these not-so-subtle infections of Oslo Mikrobryggeriís beers could be as simple as dirty tap lines, which they apparently donít give a ratís ass about, as this has been going on for a long time. Their loss, as Iím not only never coming back but will also WARN fellow beer hunters about the low quality. Shape up or get the boot, I say. Amazing that theyíve even survived all these years, they must have a strong following of non-critical beer drinkers/homers to keep them alive...

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap @ Oslo Mikrobryggeri. Pours a dark dark ruby red body with a small creamy off white head. Aroma is quite sweet with notes of flowers and roasted malts. Light sticky to oily mouthfeeling and itís quite softly carbonated. Tastes really sweet with lots of flowerish notes. Also some burned caramel in the background. Not your, or mine at least, typical porter. More like a red ale.
