COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours pitch black with a minimal head. Massive aroma has notes of alcohol, roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and liqourice. Slight hints of vanilla and oak.

250 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu, Helsinki.
Pours a black colour without a head. Aroma of roasted malts, licorice and alcohol. Flavour of roasted malts, licorice, floral hops and even some chocolate. Quite burning mouthfeel with a roasty, licorice finish. Alcohol comes through a bit too much. Still good.

SirLimpsalot (2361) - SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2011
Flaska för 8 euro (kostar över 500 kr på Bishops Arms i Stockholm). Beksvart och helt skumlöst. Fantastisk doft av mörk choklad. Otrolig stor smak av söt lakrits. Ganska torr och het med tydliga toner av russin och svisker. Mycket, mycket gott!

Bottle at Pikkulintu in Helsinki, July 2011. Black with no head. Strong aroma and taste of chocolate, ash, roasted malt, licorice, dark fruits and something that I really cant put my finger on. I liked this beer, very good. Perfect to share a bottle with some friends.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2011
Black colored with little vanishing beige head. Rich roasted aroma and smoked, burnt aroma, licorice and some vinous note here as well, only mild alcohol here. Full bodied. Flavor is even more roasted with licorice, some vinous note and strong sweetness. Aftertaste lasts with sweet licorice, thin alcohol warming here nicely.

Copenhagen beer festival. Made with fennel. Opaque black beer, low carbonation. Sweet chocolate and marmite. Tastes somewhat aged. Semi dry finish. A challenging beer.

NosirIwont (2006) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark, murky brown. No head. Sweet, dark fruit aroma with roasted notes and a spicy overtone. Okay, but pretty standard. Tart, sweet liquorice flavour with a strong coffee note on a roasted background. Not nearly as cloying as I’d expected. Bitter coffee finish with a tart note. Develops an alcoholic bite as it warms, but overall the alcohol is very well-hidden, which is an accomplishment considering the 16% abv. Didn’t miss carbonation at all – this works very well without it. 20.02.11.

TimE (3365) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 20, 2010
Pours a very deep dark brown color. Huge molasses, dark chocolate, tobacco, treacles. very rich, very pugnent nose. Smoking a huge chocolate fondue on top of a Cuban cigar. Sucking it back with some Blanco tequlia. Tasty shit. Loving it. Rich full bodies. Full bodied chocolate tobacco with dark chocolate. Really nice.
