22oz bottle fresh from Norway, thanks to Ani and Erlend for the bottle.
Per the bottle OG=16.5P, 29 IBU, 7% ABV, bottle conditioned. Batch 1688 Brewed 14.10.16

Pours out to a deep brown, near black, forming a voluminous head. Brisk Psssht upon opening, and firm carbonation, ~3 carbs or so, so I suspect some carbonation developed in the bottle after the fact. Excellent retention and beautiful solid sheet of lacing, like a pillow of meringue that doesn't go away. The nose is great. Very nice black walnut, dark chocolate, subtle espresso, some fruity esters, some raisin and prune, subtle note of oxidation. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, light roast astringency, light hop astringency, lightly tart. The taste is a recap of the aroma, thankfully not too oxidized, just a subtle note of wet cardboard towards the finish. Nice dark fruit. The hops are earthy, not overly burnt, finishing with a slight sweetness balancing out the roast and bitterness. Cola like in the middle.

A nice porter. I suspect an English yeast strain which tends to throw those cardboard notes and esters. Worth trying!

I'm part Norwegian, and this is a Norwegian micro brew. The only problem with this beer is. How do I get more. Outstanding Baltic Porter brew. Great smell, great taste, great color and a nice head. This is very much the same way I felt the Omnipolla Noa Pecan Mud Cake Stout I had yesterday.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Look: Pours black with a brown head. It has good head retention with good lacing.

Smell: It has aromas of chocolate, some coffee, roast, and a bit of citrus.

Taste: There are flavors of chocolate, coffee, roast, a bit of citrus and dried fruit.

Feel: It has a moderate body on the high side with fairly high carbonation. It has a moderately bitter finish with mild alcohol warmth.

Overall this is a porter with excellent combination of malts with complexity between the chocolate and roast and a surprisingly hoppy bite to it.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip.

L: Pours a dark black color... hints of mahogany around the edges where the light makes an attempt to get through. Very thin head... dark tan. Decent lacing.

S: Roasted malts... burned sugars, fresh espresso, and very faint fruit.

T/F: Follows the nose... with great roast character... coffee, chocolate, and plum. Burned sugars give it a mild sweetness. Medium in body... fairly smooth and warming. Just enough hops at the finish to clean everything up and give it a dry finish.

O: A great porter from Norway.... gotta thank the local Bottle Shop for both carrying and recommending it. Definitely grab one if you see it!

Poured from bottle into a modified tulip glass.
A - Dark, and lively. A fine carbonation stream supports a thin evolving cap/
S - Light roasted malts, a hint of cocoa, a bit of toffee, very nice.
T - Caramel, coffee, a bit of aged fruit, and a fine chocolate element.
F - Thin and delightful body, a sharp edge rolls up at the mid point and
unfolds leaving a nice sweet finish.
O - Very nice Porter, English ale yeast adds that sweet, round feel, and the Norwegian
touch is well done.
Cheers
