Poured from tap into signature 0.5L glass at the brewpub in Flam. Pours a deep black color with a nice thick off-white head. Great roasted coffee malted aromas, slight hop as well. Taste is roasted chocolate malt flavors, coffee, maybe some vanilla as well. Smooth as can be, and full of body. Great porter, but waaay to expensive; even for Norway...come on USD$17/glass at the brew pub? There arent many 4.7% ABV brews worth that price.

.5L Bottle with a freshness date of 7 Dec 12. Purchased from the Coop in Madla (near Stavanger). Poured into a wine goblet. Pours with 2 fingers of thick, creamy tan or beige head. Very nice lacing on the sides. This porter pours a dark chocolate brown with slight tints of orange on the sides. Excellent presentation.

The nose consists of coffee, chocolate (some milk and mostly bitter), roasted malts, and a slight burnt twinge. Also some bakers chocolate thrown in.

Taste is like a piece of chocolate cake with a cup of coffee. Delicious desert beer or by itself. Generous amounts of coffee and chocolate maltiness define this porter. Really comes across as a coffee porter. Think coffee flavored ice cream...that is the lingering taste I get. There is definitely a pronounced lingering coffee flavor. Finishes with a slightly burnt, roasted malt flavor. Deliciously simple. Some bitterness lingers after a rich chocolate coffee profile up front.

Mouthfeel is substantial and creamy. Good carbonation and very smooth drinking. Overall, this is excellent. I am impressed with what the folks at Ægir did with this porter at only 4.7 ABV. Drinking this beer is one of life's simple pleasures. If you like this porter, you have to try their Natt Porter when available.

Served on-tap from the Brewery in Flam, Norway

Appearance: Very dark and hefty appearance, creamy brown head

Smell: Dry cocoa and a hint of sweet coffee

Taste: A gentle chocolatey touch, roasted coffee, a tickle of sweet malt, some darker flavors underneath. Really delicious. Everything works together well, extremely well balanced. I would personally like something slightly more potent but the balance is first class, and I really enjoyed it.

Mouthfeel: Somewhat light

Overall: Great, wonderful drink. Delicious and goes down easy. Loved it so much it made me finally write my first review. If you are ever nearby Flam, Norway, definitely check out this place (the furniture is great too!)

Serving type: on-tap

on-tap, brewpub in Flam

from notes

appearance: .5L serving - very dark brown body, chocolate cream cap

smell: dry cocoa, woody, cola

taste: Dry and roasty - cocoa powder, tree bark, flat cola, light coffee, sweet dark fruits. An OK porter - not worth a re-order

mouthfeel: lighter bodied, smooth

overall: ok - tough finish for me
