Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Very dark brown (almost black) colour with a ruby hue. Inch-thick beige head that diminishes quickly, but leaves a nice lace ring. Aroma of roasted malt, cookies, pepper, nutmeg and some fruitiness (raisins). Taste is quite dry, somewhat papery, but also acidic. Mild bitterness and a discreet malty/fruity sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium/light - had expected a bit more body. Tried it with a few xmas cookies, but that match was poor - maybe better with savoury food. The cocoa/chili elements are hardly noticable.

Secondo me? Una mezza belinata, una porter tipica resa atipica da note stonate inserite per scherzo.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2011
Dark brown colour and tan head. Quite bitter, but also a malty sweetness. Aroma is also malty. Finish is bitter-sweet. I like, but I think I preferred Alice Porter. (Bottle)

From tap at Camden. Pours pitch black with a small off-white head. Aroma is roasted dark malty and liqourice. Thick malty, roasted and liqourice flavoured. Toffee malty and liqourice into a smooth and light spiced finish.

Bottle. It leaves a dark beige head of finger-thick size over a clear-looking dark brown body when poured. Really dark brown that is. Theres roasted malts, licorice and some coffee hints on the nose, but most of all theres orange zest. To be honest, Id prefer orange. The flavor has a touch of something sourish, but only a faint note. I hope I only misjudged some of the orangey notes. Theres also roasted malts and licorice in the flavor, along with a fine bitterness, both of the hoppy kind and of the citrus peel kind. Its medium to full-bodied, a bit hard on carbonation, but still feeling rather smooth on the palate. In the end theres orange zest bitterness and flavor, licorice, some roasted malts and hoppy bitterness. I probably poured this one too cold, it improved with a slightly higher temperature, but that doesnt prevent me from thinking this is just another well brewed porter like so many others. And the bragging about chili, well, its mostly bragging. 111213

shoulderbroken (4162) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 11, 2011
Keg at Brewdog Camden. Black dark brown colour with small beige head. Aroma a bit oaty, bit chocolate malt, but not really much else. Taste is touch of vanilla, bit of milky coffee and a touch of smoke. Slighty spicy which gives a bit of a prickle in the mouth. Much prefer the Alice Porter, but this is a bit festive I guess.
