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.

Leighton (18700) - 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.

Hansen (8435) - Assentoft, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2011
I like the danish description ;o). And I like the beer. Black. Has an off-white head, medium duration. Aroma is heavy black, coffee, chocolate, soy-sauce, laqurice. Heavy sweet flavor, burning alcohol, moderate bitterness, more soft laqurice, long-long-loong duration. Syrupy texture. Flat carbonation.

Palme (4180) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2011
0.25l bottle @ The Bishops Arms (Vasagatan), Stockholm. Pours a dark as the night body with a thin and quickly fading and light bubbly off-white head. The aroma is dark dark dark with chocolate, burned roasted malts, coffee, dark licorice and sugar. Soft carbonation in a oily as hell and light sticky mouthfeel. Fantastic roasted, sweet, boozy and black flavors. There is dark Belgian chocolate with lots and lots of roasted goodness in here. Warming as hell in the finish. Greatness x 2. It’s just such a great sipper and a fantastically flavorful beer. Love it.

Bottle, sample. Black thick liquid, no head whatsoever. Awesome aroma: sweet, very malty, liqueur, chocolate, licorice, dried and dark fruits, molasses. Taste: an odd spiciness, chocolate, licorice, dill eller sill, salt/soy sauce, burnt, high bitterness, alcohol is well hidden. Full-bodied, liqueur-ish. Very interesting brew.

Pitch black colour with no head. Aroma of dark roasted malts, liquorice, soy-like salmiac and some coffee. Flavour of liquorice, salmiac and tacky syrup. Surprisingly easy to drink despite the high ABV.

FatPhil (14021) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 4, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2011 Averaging 2 ratings, giving preference to the one in a more rating-conducive environment.
250ml bottle (RBESGG2011, Grand Tasting) - "danish thimble" (6:4:5:3:11=2.9)
Black, but flat. Burnt aroma. Too much so. Sticky. Bitter bite, as much from burntness as anything else. Too burnt, astringent. Finish has at least some coffee to save it from being not worth drinking.
Rerate: 250ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, Olutopas Pikkujoulu Aftermath)
7+ Super rich barley-wine aroma.
4 Basalt, no head.
7 Super salty taste. Heavy roast too, but salt dominates. Alcohol is only covered in the sense that the salty bite is the bigger one.
4 Salt on the palate too, sweetich and sticky as well. Finish full and not as overpowering as it is in the mouth. Rich on the burntness but not too astringent.
13 Unnecessarily strong, but just keeps itself sippable. Shame about all the salt - weird.
