Appearance: dark brown color. Medium head, beige with quick collapse.
Aroma: slight toasted malts and oxide notes. Some underground of vanilla and chocolate.
Flavor: light and ephemeral sweet and toast start. Timid toasted and flavor, some hints of “watery coffee”. Oxidy aftertaste.
Palate: light body and watery texture. Low to medium carbonated.
Remark: a porter?, some insipid, without character nor body. I hope taste the original version.

330ml bottle (Systembolaget) - gift from MiP - thanks!espenra (1016) - Kurland, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2008
Dark reddy brown, brief fizzy beige head. Orange sherbet sweets in the aroma. Slightly fizzy and watery palate, but plenty of instant malty burntness, accentuated on swallowing, and a touch of milkiness. After that, there’s a lovely tingly hoppy feeling in the mouth - loads of something like hallertau. Decent chocolatiness too in the finish, but the hops easily last longest. Very refreshing, and very tasty for a 3.5% brew.
33cl bottle from Konsum. It poured a dark brown colour with a big foamy head that settles down fast in the glass. It has a roasted aroma smells of brown sugar, coffee and malts. The flavour is suprisingly mild, but this could be because of the abv. It tastes of coffee, dark chocolates and malts. It has a medium long aftertaste. petermadsen (390) - Vesterbronxxx, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2008
This is not bad at all. A light bodied porter with liqourice, brown sugar, chocolate and some hops. Balanced and really tasty for a low abv beer. JustinBathurst (134) - Corner Brook, Newfoundland, CANADA - JUN 26, 2008
Pours a dark cola brown with a tinge of ruby and a 1.5 cm tan head. A thin layer of the head remained and a touch of lacing.
Smells of celery, a smidgen of malt, some hops with a metallic edge like a copper pipe.
The mouthfeel is smooth, a bit chalky, with pretty low carbonation.
Tastes of my homebrewed wheat beer (sadly, it was terrible), with a mildly bitter finish, a bit of brown sugar in the faint distance, with a touch of dark chocolate and roasted malt. There’s a dab of honey in there as well.
Not nearly as bad as I was fearing, but basically inoffensive and lacking any real identity. Too thin, methinks.

Bottle at Mortens - thanks. Almost black - white head. Ryebread, øllebrød, sweetness, roasted, licorice, almost no hops. Boring. mybestfriend (263) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2008
33 cl bottle. Pours a blackish brown colour with an off-white head. Aroma is roasted coffee and chocolate. Flavour has some sweetness. Watery! Notes of diluted coffee with some sprinkles of dark bitter chocolate on top. The finish has some roasted notes as well and the bitterness is very moderate. Try the strong version instead...!

330 ml bottle. Black with brownish hues. Medium light-beige head that clings to the glass. Licorice aroma and a little caramel. Medium-bodied. Surprisingly sweet. Nice balance. Low on the hops with only a hint of bitterness in the finish. Nice for a beer of this strength. armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 12, 2008
Not a powerful aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Nice appearance with a dark brown body and a good beige head. Little sweet, little roasted flavour, moderated carbonation. Roasted and sweety aftertaste. Brix (660) - DENMARK - FEB 1, 2008
Tasted 2007-12-26. Fresh bottle. Pours clear, black/red with creamy beige head. Looks kinda boring. Has a light malty aroma. Slightly burned - very mild. Tastes like sweet liquorice - very mild, no bitterness to speak of. Considering he abv., it’s OK, but it’s not worth a revisit!
