The old farm breweries of Norway made special beers - dark, hearty, earthy beers like this classic porter - for weddings christenings, funerals or any occasion at all. Haandbryggeriet makes living beer, not pastuerized nor filtered. But re-fermented in the bottle to create a natural carbonation.

barrelagedluv (89) - Pittsburg, California, USA - JAN 29, 2018
Pours an oily opaque with a spouting fountain of a head. Aroma is that if chicory and smoke. Taste is very unique for a porter. Notes of peat and smoked malts, and unsweetened cacao, Finish is layered and complex, licorice and spicy wood. Hearty beer good on a mild NorCal night.

Bottle from Speciaalbierpakket. Aroma is roasted malt with dark- and milk chocolate, caramel, and coffee. Flavour is medium sweet with a modest roasty bitterness. Body is above medium and a bit creamy. A prime Porter, nice chocolate and roasted malts, smooth easy drink.

A beautifully balanced Porter. The point that dominates is the full body. It complement's the taste perfectly. Tan head, Carbonation medium. Finish long. A very good example of a Porter.

tom10101 (6317) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2017
Bottle (500 ml) at home, split 2-ways. Dark brown - almost black - with a medium beige head, good retention, leaving moderate lacing. Aroma is of milk chocolate, dried raisins & figs, smokey notes, moderate earthiness, berries, green peppers and hints of coffee. Taste is slightly sweet with milk chocolate, red berries, figs, earthy notes, liquorice, mineral/earthy notes and green peppers. Medium body, on the light-ish side. Moderate carbonation. Super fluffy mouthfeel. Milk chocolate and berries finish. It certains has the Haandbryggeriet signature with some berries from the north but what sets this one apart is the really nice fluffy mouthfeel. Good.

The_Osprey (9916) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2017
January 2017 - Bottle share at Leighton’s. Thanks Leighton! As ’HaandBryggeriet Norse Porter ’, 6.5%, 2013 vintage. Very dark brown with a red hue, still with a foamy brown head. Aroma is chocolate and rye bread, rich fruited chocolate vibes, musty, tangy resinous vibes. Body is light, tingly carbonation, frothy. Taste is ashy, dark chocolate, raisins, tangy fruits, spicy dry finish. Has held up fairly well with age. (3.1)

Scopey (16548) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle at level 42. It pours dark red - brown with a small tan head. The aroma is toasty, sweet, earthy, leather, dirt, dried fruits and mellow roast. The taste is dry, woody, leather, dirty, light ash, charred wood, leather, plum, date and toasted malt with a fruity finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Could be a touch cleaner. OK at best.
