Bottle. Dark brown, black in glass, very thin offwhite head, lacings is not very pleasent. Aroma of coffee and chocolate, hints of prunes. Body is quite malty, not much sweetness. Quite dry mouthfeel. Finish is super hoppy and quite bitter. Nice tmrmwel (2089) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2011
Bottle. Pours black, with a big, airy head. Good aroma with notes of burned malt, candi sugar and some dark fruit. Pleasant acidic taste of burned malt, which gives a dry, lasting aftertaste. berlinoise2go (689) - NORWAY - APR 17, 2011
Bottle from Centra, Oslo. Black with a red taint. Small light beige head with decent retention. Aroma of roasted malt, smoked wood, tar, licorice. Medium/light body, quite smooth. Average carbonation. Taste is dry and woody with coffee and raw licorice. Very nice stout. ClubGonzo (5670) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2011
Bottle from Vaaland Spesialbutikken, Bryne. Pours a deep brown, near-black body with a medium white head. Aroma is strong mocha tones with hints of milk chocolate and coffee. Pretty nice. Taste is deep roasted malts, coffee and hints of mocha and cocoa. Yummy. Lots of flavor for a dry stout, and great "everyday beer"-contender to f.ex. Guinness. One of the few nice surprises among the low ABV beers I got from Vaaland Spesialbutikken this time around. banii (240) - Sola, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2011
Bottle from Berentsens Brygghus, Egersund. A well balanced, local produced stout, and one of the only stouts available in supermarkets in (western) Norway.

Den er minst like sort som Guinness og det eneste som trekker litt ned er litt lavt og lite tett skum. Lukten er nydelig. Noe mystisk lett brent, sjokolade og annet jeg ikke helt klarer å sette ord på. Smaken holder det lukten lover. Den er fyldig og god, men ikke helt på Mikkeller nivå (den er da også i en annen klasse). Ettersmaken er fin men litt i korteste laget etter min smak.

330 ml bottle. Dark amber, almost black body with a nice, lasting, creamy beige head – close to perfect. Aroma is strong malty, mocha, roast, liquorices and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is roasted, dark malt, quite fruity, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, mild roasted coffee and moderate bitter. Nice and really smooth, quite impressive at only 4,7 abv, like a sophisticated Guinness. KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2010
Bottle. A milk stout, if you ask me, sweetish cappuchino. A bit more dryness would have let the soot and grain come through, elemenst you feel underneath. Almost, but not quite. HenrikSoegaard (14176) - Randers, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2010
