COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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 (7998) - 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 (14766) - 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.

Nonshaugen (613) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2017
50 cl, batch #969. Almost jet black, no head, no visible carbonation. Aroma is mostly dark bitter chocolate. Medium+ mouthfeel, medium carbonation, bitter and dry finish. Flavours of roasted malts, caramel, dark toffee, prunes and alcohol. Some vinous qualities, but I’m a bit surprised about this beer did hit the Top 50 Porter list...

Farewell Bespin Bottleshare. Thanks to Leighton. Almost clear dark brown beer, big tan head. Airy palate, fairly dry and with reasonable fine carbonation. Mellow dark malts, modest dark chocolate and milder coffee that turns tangy. Smooth semi dry finish. Modest roasty bitter linger. Tidy.
