Bottle. Another classic that I fell in love with during my early beer geek days up for rating; this one has been largely unavailable in Norway a few years but is now back in the game. :-) Pours a deep brown-black body with a ruby taint and a medium creamy off-white head. Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee and deep malty tones rounded off by a gentle dark berry-like fruitiness and hints of freshly cut grass. Taste is smooth roasty coffee tones, dark chocolate, nuts and hints of licorice and leather. Incredibly smooth and creamy mouthfeel, as I can remember being one of the captivating factors that made me love this beer. I still do, fortunately, as sometimes re-visiting old friends in the beer world can be very different than remembered...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
subtle yet strong Willamette nose: floral, spicy, a bit woody, faint reminiscence of wild strawberries, also some bitter chocolate. Taste brings out the Willamette again, this time carried on a toasty, smooth malt base, finishing more on the freshly ground and then brewed filter coffee side, also in aftertaste. A wonderful Porter!

Good beer but real good considering they make a ton of rhis manufactured porter, somewhat lean, nice roast very dry and crisp. A good goto if other craft is not available.
