Panzuriel (2125) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Pours a rich black brown with a nice head of light brown bubbles. Nose is rich dark chocolate, molasses and raisins. Taste is dry, with a hint of roasted malt, chocolate and black coffee bitters on the finish. Body is silky and slightly lively. Very nice and rich finish.

There isnt tons of Norwegian beer in my area, but from the few Ive had, its pretty clear they how to make some awesome Porters. Speaking of things I dont know dick about: akevitt. Ive never had it and dont know much about what its supposed to take like, so I might have to revisit this rating after my ass is more learned. HaandBryggeriet Fatlagret pours near-black and thick. Roast, dark chocolate, herbal tree spirits, and a touch of smoke. Flavor follows the nose. This tastes largely like your typical roasty, rich Imperial Porter but with generous notes of juniper and earth. Viscous, stick-to-your-bones mouthfeel. Some warm booze. Im going to need to much more HaandBryggeriet in my life.

Bottle from SB. Dark brown to black. No sediment. 2-3 finger tanned head. Rich roasted aroma with dark chocolate sauce, licorice, viola and spicy akvavit. A hint of peat as well. Quite alluring and nice. Taste is roasted and slight spicy with licorice, dark chocolate, viola and akvavit. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and oily texture. Nice! Good balance on the barrel flavour and the beer in general.
