On tap at kick. Pours a pure black opaque with slight grey head. Slight cherry nose but mostly malt, coffee and roasted wood. Tastes like a porter should, fair bitterness, sourness, bubbles and sweetness. Good tmrmwel (2089) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2014

Black color with a fine beige head. Nice rich aroma. Roasted, coffee, chocolate and some fruity notes. Not as thick as expected. Fine balance between sweetness and bitterness. Mellow and easy drinkable. Maybe to easy. Dominating roasted and coffe. Mild fruity n the back.daje (4436) - NORWAY - AUG 27, 2014

Fra fat på Café Fiasco, Oslo 29 Jul 14. Svart. Lavt, tett filmskum med litt farge. Tett lacing. God lakris-/sjokoladearoma. Smaken forsterker aromaen og utvider med røstethet & kaffe. Forsiktig syrlighet i ettersmaken.

Black in color with a thin beige head and medium carbonation.
Aroma is coffee,roasted malt,dark chocolate,fruity and some cherries.
Tastes a bit sour and dry with a bitter finish.
A nice brew, but i wish the aroma from cherries had given the beer a more cherry taste. Inbreak (5885) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2014

Nice light brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is lots of diacetyl; black winegum crocodiles, butterscotch, caramel malts, chocolate, hay. Taste is slightly neutral, dark malts, hay, caramel, chocolate, cardboard, butterscotch. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Meh!
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Black colour, large tan head. Mild roasty and fruity aroma, notes of cherry chocolates and mild coffee. Smooth mouthfeel. Moderate roasty notes, mild coffee and dark chocolate, only a hint of cherries (I am not even sure I could identify it, if I never knew it should be there). Nice to drink though.
