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.

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - 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!

wavers1 (872) - Notown, California, USA - JAN 13, 2010
bottle courtesy of danish secret santa, thank you! 25cl, everything about this beer is viscous. the pour, the aroma, the taste, the mouthfeel, everything. the aroma is concentrated dates, prunes, raisins and figs, with lots of very nice more subtle sweet notes of vanilla, oak, caramel, coconut, and cocoa spiced with anise and clove, some smoke and a touch of funk. the taste is a similar melange of flavors, but there is a lot more bitter, smokey cocoa stepping up in a very nice way, especially in the finish. plenty of peaty, meatiness throughout. it starts more sweet, then finishes with a smokey, tart feel. very port like, this is a special beer. i have never seen a porter of this magnitude.

gyllenbock (4570) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2011
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.

SirLimpsalot (2123) - 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!

jesperhammer (2866) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2009
15-May-2009 Bottle at Ølfestivalen. Black and wild. Mild stout, creamy. Bitter, asphalt, delicious, full. This is the last beer at Ølfestivalen, and an appropriate way to end. The next day I find my glass, and put my nose in it, and the loveliest chocolate, charamel smell comes up:-)

Enjoyit (3455) - Vadum, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2009
Black with no head. An aroma with liqurice, spice, sweets and weak prunes. A flavor of sweets, liqurice, spice and a weak hint of bitternes. Nice oily flavor.

Christian (11056) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2010
Black with a tiny brown head. Intense licorice and molasses aroma with dark caramel, brown sugar and a hint of meaty smoke. Very rich and intense burnt caramel flavour. Sweet but nowhere near cloying. Touch of peppermint. Very warming, but not at all hot alcohol. Very different from other super-strong black beers. A masterpiece to be proud of!

Palme (3311) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2011
0.25l bottle @ The Bishops Arms (Vasagatan), Stockholm. Pours a dark as the night body with a thin and quickly fading and light bubbly off-white head. The aroma is dark dark dark with chocolate, burned roasted malts, coffee, dark licorice and sugar. Soft carbonation in a oily as hell and light sticky mouthfeel. Fantastic roasted, sweet, boozy and black flavors. There is dark Belgian chocolate with lots and lots of roasted goodness in here. Warming as hell in the finish. Greatness x 2. It’s just such a great sipper and a fantastically flavorful beer. Love it.

Dedollewaitor (13902) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2009
My 2700th rating. 25cl bottle at KBH-Festival, 2009. Waaauw. This kind of reminds me of nogne ø’s, dark horizon 1st. edition. Pours pitch black with a creamy brown head and lacings. Oily, slick, vinous, smooth and phat palate. Lots of coffee, vanilla and chocolate. Well balanced and overall just very complex and tasty. Alcohol well hidden considering its 16%. Lovely!
