3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Incredibly thick palate structure although surprisingly the flavours don’t really belt you in the face. Can almost be passed off as some sort of bitter PX! I wish I could read the commercial deScriptor as I bet there’s some interesting beer making techniques going on. Heavy red wine-like aromas lead into some rich cooked fruits and some tangy minerals. Very good really and unique palate structure.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Systembolaget.
Pours dark brown with some red hues, no head to talk about.
Wood, vanilla and vinous aroma in large amounts hits the nose, followed by some chocolate. roasted malt and liquorice.
Taste is dry, has chocolate, red berries, roasted malt, wood, some warming alcohol at the end.
After taste is long, dry, roasted and a bit bitter.
Mouthfeel is quite thick and dry, the thick feel probably comes from the oats. Medium carbonation, the bubbles are tiny and really nice to look at.
Very interesting porter, definitely one of the better ones I’ve had.

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

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
