Danish: De tider er for længst ovre, hvor skøger, tatere og fusentaster befolkede byens gader, og hvor en ærlig mand ikke regnede det for noget at give gadedrengene eller fruentimmeret et ordentligt dragt prygl. Desværre er der ikke udsigt til at de tider kommer igen, men derfor behøver du ikke gå glip af at smage, hvordan øllet kunne have været dengang. Derfor har jeg her begået en stærk porter, hvor der helt i datidens ånd er snydt på alle måder for at forstærke både farve, smagsindtryk og rus - med bl.a. udtræk af fennikelfrø og brændt sukker (essentia bina). Selvfølgelig uden nymodens pjat som kulsyre og udløbsdato.

250mL bottle, courtesy of fiulijn (thanks a lot, Alex), pours black with a small brown head. Aroma is dense, with burnt caramelized sugar, roasted malt, liqueur and tobacco. Flavour is complex as hell, with notes of tobacco, smoked malt, burnt caramelized sugar and liqueur. Quite robust, bordering on too harsh, but this is quite elegant nonetheless. Finishes burnt, lightly smoky and alcoholic without being too much.

VsXsV (2409) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2012. Opaque black liquid with small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, port, licorice, booze, spices and light ash. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of coffee, fennel (why?!) and chocolate. Full bodied with light to medium carbonation. The fennel just ruins the taste...

maneliquor (3209) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle thanks to Papsoe. This beer has intensity about it straight from the pour all the way to the finish. Pours oily black with no head. Nose is whisky, ash, dark chocolate, peppers and light vanilla. A little bit mish mash but it lets you know you’re about to get a punch in the nuts. Taste has the same intensity but the flavours transition a little better than the nose. Loads of pepper and salted dark chocolate up front with peppers and spice through the middle. Finishes ashy with faint whisky. Solid beer. Thin mouth feel and a little too sweet for such a big beer. Perfect sized bottle, even to share

Leighton (11649) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2012
Bottle at the RBESG 2011 Grand Tasting, London. Pours oily black-brown with a small, filmy head. Roasty nose with some alcohol and aged dark malts. Big sweet flavor with a weird, kind of peaty and earthy character. Pretty big in body with average carbonation. Some burnt sugar and peat and wet wood to finish. Not bad. Pretty interesting.

Very dark brown with no head. Fruity with coffee tones. Malt, coffee and hops. Full body with a long, bitter finish.
