Soft roastiness followed by a mixture of coffee and chocolate with slightly fruity hops at the end. AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2005
!998 version. Black in color, opaque with a dark, tan head. Aroma of a chocolate brownie and dark fruit. Surprisingly in good shape at 5.5% ABV. It had none of the overcarbonated, exhausted character that many beers of this ABV would display after 7 years. A huge, toasted, port-like, vinous character makes up most of the flavor profile.

A fresh bottle & a 2000 vintage bottle in a huge porter butt on the banks of Ålva. The fresh sample is roasted but grainy, watery, pasteurized indeed. The vintage sample, on which the score is based, is mellow, medium bodied, nice oxidized and dusty, chocolatey, good. k92488 (490) - KVERNALAND, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2015

A very dark brown color, with a small tan head. Very sweet aroma with touches of coffee and roasted malt. Fairly thin mouthfeel, but a tad oily. Taste is a bit more mild than I expected, but still very good. Not as heavy or full-flavored as I think a porter should be, but still pretty good.

Dark black- nice tan head- milk chocolate nose simple but good- bitter sweet chocolate, coffee taste - medium body – coffee baking chocolate Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2008
Bottle from 2007. Black with cream white head. Dry, roasted malt. A bit thin but very nice. It should really be kept away for a while for some maturing but nice when it is new as well. A bit bitter and some sweetness in the after taste. shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 25, 2008
This is one of the finest beers I have had in a long time, combining the smooth flavor that goes well with a meal to the rich earthy flavors that I love in a porter. The nose is a combination of barley and caramel. The brew is so deeply brown that it borders on black with a monster butterscotch head. The flavor is a lovely blend of cracked barley, oats, caramel, aged whiskey barrel, and a hint of vanilla in the background.
