3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Very dark brown color. Medium size, brown head, stays. Sweet, roast, malts, slightly earthy notes in aroma. Roasted malts, sour, sour milk? tree branches in taste. Rough, but gentle at the same time. Salty bitter aftertaste. Messy.
Black color with a frothy tan head. Decent intensity in the aroma. Medium body and a to high carbonation level. Made it quite fizzy to drink. Ok balanced sweetness versus bitterness. Semi dry ending. Coffee, roast and some chocolate in the flavor. Decent beer, but destroyed by a to high carbonation level.Toomio (596) - Joensuu, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2017

Coffee, toasted malt, great mouth feel, warming, rich and weighty. Nothing fancy or experimental, just a very solid porter. mrol (340) - - JUN 13, 2017
Dark brown colour, beige foam. Coffee, roasted malts. Light sweetness. Well balanced and easy drinkable but I expected more from this brewery. Holmen1 (6304) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2017
Fra fat på Mi2 Cardinal juni-17: mørkebrun rav med fint skum som varer. en svært lettdrikkelig og hyggelig porter, slank og passe tørr. Kaffe, ristede nøtter, litt lakris og urter. Kan sikkert passe godt til mat. En god start på nok en hyggelig kveld påp Mandag i annen! Holmen2 (3880) - NORWAY - JUN 5, 2017
From tap at Mi2 at Cardinal 05.06.17. Translucent brown. Pale brown head. Fine aroma of dark malt, roasted nuts and a hint of yeast. Taste of medium dark malt, roasted nuts, coffee and brittle. Medium hop bitterness is lingering on. Dry. Excellent drinkability. ERB92 (772) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2017
Aroma of chocolate, coffee, caramel, wood and hints of nuts and vanilla. Dark brown to black with a tan head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation. Slightly dry and bitter finish. Overall a decent porter. A bit unbalanced, but still quite enjoyable.
