3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours almost black with a thin tanned head. Smells of roasted malts, coffee, port and oak; alot of dark sins in here. Taste is medium sweet, quite roasty, lots of coffee, some chocolate and port, some booze. Moderate bitter, coffee and earthy hops. A fantastic brew. The port is very well integrated, very nice complex aromas and flavors

0.375 l bottle from Copenhagen. Black color. Roasty and vinous aroma with raisins, tobacco, cocoa and red wine. Sweet roasty salty licorice flavor with charcoal, oak, red wine and raisins. Full body, some woodiness in palate but not too oaky. Quite unique taste, plenty of salty licorice like in some couch medicines I had as a kid.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
375ml bottle pours an opaque deep brown with some lacing white head. Nose is nice, but a bit weird; nutty, malty, toasted bread, light vanilla, some light rubber, something that reminds me of burning plastic. Flavor is sweet, malty, crackers, heavy molasses, some smoke, almost like liquid smoke, licorice, brown sugar. Full bodied, sweet finish. Decent, but Amager’s porters are so good that I expected a bit more.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 Bottled. Pours opaque black with a large tan head. Excellent lacing. Nose of roasted malts, vanilla, licorice and port.
Sweet flavor of roasted malts, licorice, chocolate, prunes, raisins, vanilla notes and again port.
Medium to full bodied, oily texture and flat to soft carbonation. More dry finish with alcohol notes. Again a great brew from Amager.

Pleasant flavor of soft, sweet, roasted malt, coffee, fruit, oak, bitterness and warming alcohol. Full body with a solid aftertaste. Complex and really nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Systembolaget, bought in May 2012.
Black with a medium brownish head. Aroma of roasted malt, licorice, oak and some salt. The taste was heavy and not elegant. Vinous with licorice, ash, roasted malt and salt. Drinkable but a bit tough in the long run.
