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.

NosirIwont (2368) - Frederikssund, 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.

bottle thanks to bu11zeye. poured black with no head, but stained the glass rather well. aroma was dark roast, fudge, dark fruits, and brown sugar?. flavor was same as the nose plus meat, smoke, and minus the brown sugar. body was a little lighter than i preferred for the style.

ChainGangGuy (4810) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Appearance: A heavy-looking, black liquid slowly leaks out of the bottle and here it sits, without head, without lace. Smell: Essentia Bina carries with it a ponderous aroma to go with such a hearty appearance. Heavily roasty with notes of coffee and dark chocolate and scent of smokey condensed molasses given a few good shakes of non-brewed soy sauce and dash of spice. Taste: A taste of well-roasted malts fused with a bitter, nearing acrid taste of burnt sugar and a light background spiciness from the addition of fennel seeds. Hint of charred wood. A hotness and coffee flavor akin to cheap, off-brand Kahlúa. Some dark, dark chocolate. More of the basic soy carrying over from the nose and lasting into the roasty, earthy finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Sans carbonation, so it remains a bit weighty on the tongue. Drinkability: At times reminiscent of WWS, but the noted soy sauce character also reminds me of dear ole Triple Bock. It’s an interesting brew, albeit somewhat tiresome to the tongue -- what a great relief it’s housed in a scant 250mL bottle.

tasting on 7/30/10. pitch black pour with no head - really like the density of this one. nose is full of roasted malt, licorice, oak and molasses. big body with peat and intriguing spice flavors - especially towards the tip of the tongue. not really liking the overall tone of this one through the mouth. roasted finish with more moss flavors.
