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.

TurboMarkus (18) - Czeladz (Katowice), POLAND - MAR 13, 2016
butelka (rozlew:05.03.14 - przeleżało ponad 2 lata) Barwa brunatna/ciemnobrązowa - jak ropa naftowa z minimalnymi rubinowymi refleksami, piana średnia, brązowa, z małym pierścieniem do końca, W aromacie sporo ciemnej czekolady, suszonych owocw - śliwek, wiśni, świetna kawa, trochę rumu, nawet popiołowo. W smaku tak samo, śliwka z kawą komponuje się wspaniale. Bardzo aksamitne piwo, wysycenie niskie - raj dla podniebienia. genialny porter z kategorii tych poniżej 8% Jestem zachwycony jego zbalansowanym smakiem i aromatem, po 2 latach od butelkowania nadal wszystko na właściwym miejscu.

Garrold (4964) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle. Tall Boys, Leeds. Opened with a big pfft. Clear, very dark, chestnut brown. Huge, bubbly, lasting, tan head. Nose has fruity, vinous, caramel sweet malts. A hint of earthy, unwashed coffee bean. Hint of treacle. Hint of savoury smoke. Taste is sweet, fruity, smoky, and light, roast bitter. Palate is fairly full, but is let down by being way too fizzy. Any richness you might expect is spoiled by the fact its frothing all over the shop. Long, fruity, bitter finish. Overall, its ok.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2017 butelka, warka do 05.03.2016 (a wiec rozlana prawie dwa lata temu). brazowy, z rubinowymi przeblyskami, z bardzo bujna piana, nieco mydlanie opadajaca, ladnie brudzaca szklo. Aromaty bardzi intensywne, ciemne owoce (wisnie, sliwki suszone), kawa, czekolada, palonosc... tez jakies a la drewniano-ziemne nutki takie, moze nawet tytoniowe. w ustach slodko, ciut kwaskowato, gladko, owocowo, ze srednim wysyceniem. niewysoka goryczka popiolowa. srednio ciala, szybko znikajace z pokala. Bardzo pasuje mi rownowaga tego piwa, przechylona w strone owocowosci. klasa.

Aromat to potężne uderzenie czekolady, kawy i gorzkiego kakao. W smaku lekko słodko, bardzo mlecznie czekoladowo, z gorzkim kakaem, kawową kwaskowatością. Wszystko świetnie zbalansowane i na miejscu. Przepyszny porter.

lello4ever (923) - ITALY - JAN 8, 2016
Nera con schiuma beige sottile ma abbastanza persistente. Al naso malto tostato, prugne, molto intenso. Al palato fantastica, manca solo un pelo di cremosit, ma molto beverina. Malto tostato, legno, cioccolato e caff. Buona carbonazione. Ottima e complessa.

mariuspoenari (2204) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
50cl bottle, best before 25.10.15 (2 months off). Pours a very dark brown, opaque brew, with a thin tan head with no retention. Smells like an aged porter, alright - heavy on dark fruit, cherries, chocolate and coffee, and a mellow note of roasted grains. The taste is quite balanced - roasted grains, cherries, dark fruit, dark chocolate and coffee. Smooth mouthfeel and almost no carbonation.
