Dark dark dark, but sweet and fresh. It takes approximately the time from the signal to reach your brain to know if you love it or hate it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
En ok porter, men litt anonym og tam smak, og bittelitt for mye røyksmak i ettersmaken. La oss kalle det en grei pluss...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle. Dark brown body, close to black with a big, foamy tan head, Nice aroma of roasted malt, coffee and liquorices. Flavour of dark roasted malt, liquorices, coffee and quite bitter. Fine body with a long, dry, aftertaste with roasted malt and coffee. A bit robust in style, but I really enjoyed this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep brown almost clear body with a big-bubbled head that laces the glass well. Strong aroma that initially feels very sweet, but after a while it becomes more dusty and dry. Roasted notes, dark caramel and chocolate, with some smoke and tobacco in the back and even further back I find some fruity hints. Light sweet and light bitter taste. Strong roasted malty flavours with chocolate and coffee. Also hints of fruits and herbs. Smooth and dry texture with a bit too soft carbonation for such a light body. Still a very nice beer!

Soft, silky smooth. A bit thin, but there is a lovely bread crust and roasted malt flavour here. Coffee, too. Very dark brown.
