Pours deep black with creamy off-white head. Smell is malty-roasty with lots of coffee. Starts malty bitter with lots of roasted nuances and some coffee. Middle part has some sweetish chocolate and bitter roasted coffee. Goes into a cooffee’ish malty finish with lots of roasted malts and bitter chocolate.
Quality porter with some slightly smoky flavor and a nifty little bitterness that lingers relatively long. Nice with a porter that is not too sweet. RandomBeerDude (11) - SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2013
Dark dark dark, but sweet and fresh. It takes approximately the time from the signal to reach your brain to know if you love it or hate it. Arve_Christian (5140) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2013
Black color, good offwhite foam. Roasted aromas, coffee, licorice, malt. Mum body & complexity. Solid bitterness, good balance. Enjoyable gunnfryd (14872) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2013

En ok porter, men litt anonym og tam smak, og bittelitt for mye røyksmak i ettersmaken. La oss kalle det en grei pluss...

Bottle from Systembolaget, february 9th 2013. Black body, big tanned head. Roasty and hoppy aroma, coffee, herbs. Taste of dark chocolate, roasted malt, erthy hops, licorice. Nice dry mouthfeel as I like in a porter, robust bitterness, aftertaste is roasty with earth. A nice porter. Geokkjer (7627) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a big beige head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and malt. Flavor is sweet and roasted with some chocolate and grains leading to a dry finish. Medium to thin body, average carbonation. Beer5000 (6483) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2013
330 ml bottle. Dark brown body, close to black with a big, foamy tan head, Nice aroma of roasted malt, coffee and liquorices. Flavour of dark roasted malt, liquorices, coffee and quite bitter. Fine body with a long, dry, aftertaste with roasted malt and coffee. A bit robust in style, but I really enjoyed this one. tfredvik (1941) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2013
Deep brown almost clear body with a big-bubbled head that laces the glass well. Strong aroma that initially feels very sweet, but after a while it becomes more dusty and dry. Roasted notes, dark caramel and chocolate, with some smoke and tobacco in the back and even further back I find some fruity hints. Light sweet and light bitter taste. Strong roasted malty flavours with chocolate and coffee. Also hints of fruits and herbs. Smooth and dry texture with a bit too soft carbonation for such a light body. Still a very nice beer!
