Bottle at Pibar, Lausanne
Black color, with generous brown head, compact. Initially the aroma is metallic, blood, then it tunes to some better chocolate and fruits. Good chocolate and caramel flavor, with mild and nice fruit and acidity. Moderate bitterness. Very good when warmer.

9th January 2010
Opaque black beer. Chocolate brown head. Lightly sour - toasted malt nose. Softish dry palate. Sourish dark malt, not bitter, not too dry. This is a light porter. There is a fruity tone but Black Cherry? Pretty subtle. Finishes with more sourish malt and a pinch of chocolate. Drinkable porter.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours a color somewhere between purple and black with a big brown head and an aroma of overripe cherries, alcohol and caramel covered biscuits. The taste is high on sweet cherries and dark roasted malts, with notes of espresso coffee, dark choclate bitterness, plums and whole-grain cookies. Nice, but a bit weird beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(35 cl bottle from Bjergtrolden) Pours black with little, tan head that fades quickly. Decent lace. Aroma is roasted malt with hints of tartness and something metallic. Watery texture, medium body, soft carbonation and a tart and roasted finish. Taste is initially weak berry but ends on a stronger note of something roasted and bitter. Not my cup of tea.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2013 A pleasant hint of cherries and a grain or two of salt. A touch of smoked malt resulting in a soft mouthfeel. Must try this one again. Nytt forsøk på Cardinaltreff okt-13: interessante saker. Røykmalten serverer førsteinntrykket, men når den gtreffer ganen er det krisebærene som dominerer.
