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.

Bottle at RBESG 09 Sheffield. Strong porter, black as night. Thin tan head. Intense hot aroma. Smoother in mouth. xxxx me intense, really just incredible. But way too much tar and booziness.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - SEP 28, 2009
Sampled at DØE Beerfestival 2009, Valby. Pours a black beer with no head. The aroma is licorice, chocolate and coffee. The flavor follows the nose. The palate leaves a bold body, and overall a good bold beer.

omhper (19970) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2009
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Cloudy dark brown, minimal head. Meaty soy sauce aroma. Takes full bodied to the extreme. Very sweet withlots of caramel. Thick with lots of power and even more molasses. Syrupy finish. Too thick and raw. Needs a century or so to mature.

oh6gdx (20923) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2009
Bottled@The Bishop’s Arms, Vasagatan, Stockholm. Quite much pitch black colour, no head. Aroma is wood, liquorice, alcohol, burnt sugar and some spices. Also dark chocolate and some espresso coffee. Flavour is wood, sweet liquorices, ashes, burnt wet wood and some slight notes of dark fruits. Big liquorice, herbs and ashes in the finish. Very wellbalanced and hides the alcohol really well.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2009
0.25 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Pitch black color, almost no head. Rich sweet and roasty aroma with licorice, grass, soya sauce, leather, warming alcohol and Jägermeister liquer. Sweet roasty aroma with burnt sugar, burnt grass, raisins, licorice, fennel and madeira wine. Some warming and sharp alcohol. Thick body with some roasty astringency. Long drying spicy finish. Excellent herbal bitters aroma. The flavor is a bit hard to drink, perhaps there could be less fennel or this should be aged. This is extreme beer but not so extreme compared to fernet branca or gammel danks bitters. I’d like to cellar few bottles of this.

Bottled at 3 små rum, Gothenburg. Thx gnoff&ekstedt Balck. Vinous aroma with chocolate, coffee and licorice. Too much alcohol and an unbalanced flavour.

Bottle at 3 Små Rum, Göteborg, on August 30, 2009
Black color, no head. Alcohol, roasted and chocolate scent. Salty, licorice, sweet taste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
Guess it wouldn’t hurt to let this one rest a couple of years to get the sharp alcohol edge to wear off a bit.
