3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
It pours very dark chocolate brown and has a thin beige head, good lacing.
The aroma is coffee, roasted malts and loquorice and some woody hints.
Taste is coffe, chocolate, nuts and a long bitter ending that persists and preserves the coffee taste. Low carbonation.
Easy to drink because of low ABV.
330ml can from Gulating Ølutsalg, Tromsø. A two-finger thick bubbly, fawn-coloured head slowly diminishing over a deep rosewood coloured body. Rings of lace down the glass. Inviting smell of brown malts with leafy hops beneath. Well blended taste of bread, caramel and nuts backed by ripe fruits and roasted bitterness towards the ending. Fine drinkability. Well crafted, (Tromsø 12.11.2017). Nordcore (1638) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2017
Dark brown, hazy with a medium off white head. Aroma of roasted malt and cooffee. Ligth bittersweet with a roasted end. Cunningham (8375) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2017
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 (604) - Joensuu, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2017

A small taste from wiosna (tap) @ One Pint Pub. Pours clear dark brown with a low head. Aroma is roasted malts with some chocolate and coffee. Flavor is light roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, nuts and hops. Great. blueruin (175) - - JUN 15, 2017
Coffee, toasted malt, great mouth feel, warming, rich and weighty. Nothing fancy or experimental, just a very solid porter. mrol (342) - - 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 (6465) - 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!
