Very deep ruby going on brown colour. Very clear (this beer is filtered) with a light beige head. Little in the way of aroma, but the taste is very smooth with a red fruits - cherry, strawberry, raspberry and plum - present in the taste along with coffee and brown bread. Very little hop flavour, but enough to balance the sweetness. Beautiful Christmas Ale, although I am not sure that I would call it a porter, the description under which it is listed.

Nice slightly brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly fruity, caramel malts, strawberry, grass, dried fruits, chocolate, nuts, butterscotch. Taste is slightly fruity, caramel malts, grass, strawberry, dried fruits, butterscotch, nuts. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Nice for what it is, but I can’t really call this a porter...
Not my style, maybe served to warm. To heavy smell of Anis spice.
My firdt beer from Berentsen Brygghus

The beer smells very good. It has a fresh sitrus start going over into a juicy malty middle. It dies a bit in the finish but overall a beer I think is very good. Gorm (1899) - Sandnes, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2013
