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.

Thanks to madmitch76 for this fine brew. This tiny bottle (with solidly rusty bottle cap that truly speaks {somehow} to the yumminess inside) pours inky black void with dark tan head and a solid legginess around the glass. The aroma is rich yummy goodness from rich chocolate, molasses, toffee, caramel covered oak, a modest level of burnt malts and some malt roastiness. The taste is smooth rich and as yummy as the nose with milk chocolate, velvety dark chocolate, spicy oak, molasses, burnt malts, more sweet molasses and then a modest level of boozy heat going down (virtually no heat for a beer this big). Smooth delicious. I’d like to have a case of these little rusty capped bottles.

(Bottle from Ølbtuikken) Poured almos black - some reddish hints at edges. Didn’t form any head. Aroma contained roastedness, liquorice, hint of fennel and alcohol. Palate was full bodied and dry with low carbonation. Flavours were roastedness, saltiness, mildy soy sauce, ash and liquorice. The very long lasting aftertaste contained liquorice and mildly bitterness. Reminded a bit of Beer Here Mørke.

The Tampa crew hits another rare gem. Thanks greg, I think! Pours a black color. Brown head. Sweet aroma, tons of prunes, molasses, milk chocolate, sweet coffe candy. Flavor is smooth and oh so rich and sweet. 16% alcohol...SAY WHAT???? Molasses, prunes, chocolate, light oxidation...Delicious!

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2010
(Bottled, 0.18l) Almost black with a tiny, quickly fading head. Aroma of dark malt, anise, licorice, some sourness, touch of alcohol. Flavor is seaweedy-salty, very roasted-malty, soy-sauce-like, mildly sweet, tarry-peaty. ABV well hidden. Very full-bodied, thick, almost flat. Like Mørke with water removed - nice, full and salty. 6249

thirdeye11 (5500) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2010
(.25L bottle thanks to bu11zeye) near black with very few bubbles, but nice coating of the glass. Nose of vanilla, graham cracker, fudge, and sweet! Taste of alcohol, fudge, dark chocolate, roasty. Thickish body, low carbonation with some fusel alcohol in the finish.

Bottle. I have been looking forward to this beer quite alot, especially because it should resemble a porter from the time of the Industrialization, and it sure didn’t dissapoint. Pours a opague black color, with just the slightest amount of brown on the side of the glass. It has no head, but a very small brown lacing. Aroma is very roasted and burnt, with alot of sweetness and some dark fruit. Flavor is also quite roasted, with a very burnt taste, the dark fruits especially dates. It is very big and boozy. I also get some charcoal and coffee. The body is full, with a thick and oily mouthfeel. The beer just completely covers your mouth, and feel a sugary gloss on your lips. Overall a very big and extreme beer, you probably either hate it or love it. I love it!

BMan1113VR (7834) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Small bottle with a rusted (?!) cap thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with no head. Looks like soy sauce in the glass. Coating with some legs. Aroma is musty, chocolate, earth, pencil shavings, soy, teriyaki and licorice. Taste is big, thick and bitter. Metallic and a bit acrid. Syrupy. Autolysis.
