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.

madsberg (10459) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2009
Bottled. Pitch black coloured. No head what so ever. Alcohol, sweetness and ripe fruits like dades and prunes in the aroma. Flavour as wee has this ripe fruit/porty touch of dades and prunes. Alcohol heavy notable. Sweetness is balancing on the cloying edge, but just manage to keep on the right side. Has some herby roastyness as well. Medium to full bodied. Alcholwarmth and roast dominates the end. Extreme.

Ljunkan (530) - SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2009
Bottle, big thanks to Alexander for this one. Pours a pitch black color with a small, almost non-existing head, which soon becomes a small ring of foam around the glass edge. Aroma is really powerful and nice; riesen (dark chocolate toffee), nuts, coffee, spices and liquorice. What a wonderful aroma ... Flavour is as powerful as the aroma with much riesen, dark chocolate, nuts, spices, coffee and liquorice. Fullbodied, thick on the palate, very smooth, almost oily/creamy mouthfeel, no carbonation. Warming, but the alcohol is extremely well hidden for 16%. A fantastic beer, all categories, and it feels balanced for a super strong imperial stout/porter. I love it!

bierkoning (10563) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2009
Bottle @ RBESG Grand tasting 2009. Deep dark brown color, no head. Malt, just a bit of vennel, caramel and raspberry in the flavor. No carbonation whatsoever. Alcoholic, roasty flavor, vinous and caramelly. Still needs a lot of time to fully develop.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2009
Bottle. Tre Små Rum. Gothenburg. Black colour with no head at all. Aroma: Roastiness, brown sugar, licorice, strong wine, alcohol and some chocolate. Flavor: Lots and lots of salty licorice, less sweet then the aroma indicates, a bit medicinal, some alcohol, some bitter chocolate, Full bodied, thick mouthfeel. No carbonation. Not very complex taste. Interesting, but one bottle for two persons was a bit too much.

hirigalzkar (2358) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2009
Bottle. This was a real bomber... lots of salt licorice and chocolate liqour that hides the alcohol well. Another great beer from Beer Here!
