UPDATED: JUN 1, 2019 Bottle about 9-10 years ago, bought at Canals. Pours a dark brown, nearly black color with a small to medium beige head. Notes are sharp wood, figs, cocoa, coffee, roasted malts, almonds, and toffee. Finishes ok but i prefer the Fatlagret porter from Haand. ianwelby (2183) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - SEP 8, 2018
Black beer, thin head. There's nothing especially distinctive or memorable about this but it's a big, tasty malty porter with hits of chocolate and coffee. Fine stuff. BeerRenter76 (1097) - Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Originally rated on 12/4/08. Batch# 78, brewed may 7- Norse porter poured a coal black body with a thick dark tan cap. Aromas were really nice with raisin, plum,cherry, chocolate, and roasted coffee. Upon first sip an earthy, spicy malt flavor, with a chocolate middle and a dry coffee finish. Overall I really liked this porter, great aroma, good taste, the one draw back is the price but you get what you pay for. mike_77 (9297) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2016
Aroma is quite sweet with hints of vanilla and chocolate. The flavour is similar but with the added complexity of roasted malts and a touch of smoke. DuffMan (10982) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 21, 2015
Bottle, shared during our epic gaming weekend. Dark brown, bubbly light brown head. Hearty roast, bitter chocolate with fruity undertones. Full bodied for its ABV. Really nice.

Black beer with light rusty brown head. Sweet fruity crispy dark malts, syrup, sugared plums and green leaves to the nose. Fruity taste; plum peels, coffee cream, chocolate, dry apple, leading to a soft flourish finish. Nice feel and body. Good brew. dj (687) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2014
Bottle, 500ml, from a Vinmonopolet in Oslo. A black colour with a large brown head. Aroma of sweet chocolate malt, some yeast notes. Flavour of chocolate malt with honey and coffee. Some underlying hop notes. Low to moderate carbonation. A slightly bitter, hoppy finish. Really enjoyed this. Cunningham (9999) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2014
