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...

Drank from the bottle. Aroma consists of roasted nuts, coffee, vanilla, caramel, and cereal. Taste is sweet and revolves around the coffee and roasted nut flavors. Medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation and a sticky mouth feel.

zenkis (629) - Ogre, LATVIA - FEB 20, 2015
First impression- dissapointed, look like more dunkel than porter.
Pours clear, reddish brown with dark, beige soapy top, some lasing too. Aroma- malty and malty with hints of vanilla, a bit chocolate, little clean, yeasty seems too. Taste- medium sweet with gentle toasted bitter, light dry finish. Medium bodied, watery texture, mild carbonation. Boaring and too casual for such price.
