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 shared in London - bought somewhere. Pours rich brown with a dense, frothy beige head. Dry milk chocolate in the nose, some dried fruits, light ash. Medium sweet flavour with rounded cocoa character, a little scorched earth, bittersweet cocoa. Medium bodied with fine carbonation and velvety texture. Alright balance in the finish, fairly dry and ashy, more bittersweet cocoa. Nice beer.
