Danish: Tanken bag “Mørke” er opstået ud fra mit ønske om at skabe en øl, der har de samme kvaliteter som det mørke, krydrede og sødlige pumpernickel rugbrød. Den er derfor brygget med bl.a. maltet rug, mørkt sukker og fennikelfrø og kun let humlet.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2009 What a gusher. Pours nearly black with a full, foamy, frothy, tan head which is mostly diminishing but leaves a very small layer and some frothy lace. Nose is very pleasant with some dark chocolates German chocolate cake, restrained Columbian coffee, toasted almonds, hints of charred wood, and buttery dark breads. Flavor starts nice with similar notes, chocolate cake, toasted almonds, buttery dark breads, lightly spicy notes, hints of coffee and smoke, but also a light buttermilk note. Palate is creamy, medium, and soft to lively. Finishes with chocolate cake, buttery dark breads, and some moderately low bitterness and spice from the hops. The beer has so many pleasant things going on but the buttermilk note in the flavor is a bit offputting. It is hard for me to say the buttermilk notes were insignificant, but everything else was so wonderful that the beer still leaves me liking it. I don’t know if this is a new brewery I have never had yet or some offshoot of Nogne, but I am interested to see what else they put out.

A nice looking porter with a frothy head. Smoky aroma. Roasted flavor and a bit smoky and buttery. Pumpernickel (how do they do that?). Background hops compliment nicely. So very well done. I might have never had a better and more interesting porter.

50cl bottle at K&L. Very dark brown with a medium tan head. The aroma is a rich mix of creamy chocolate and spices. The flavor has plenty of rich, chocolately malt with enough spice and bitterness to balance the finish nicely. Great malt flavors with a lot of depth and balance, adding sweet and spicy bread to the more roasty and chocolately flavors that you expect in a porter. Medium-full bodied with silky carbonation. Very impressive beer.

Ashy tan head is big and tightly packed above a murky darkness. Nose has nuts, chocolate and creamed espresso. Thick, chewy texture. Nutty, musty and curiously spicy. Lingering tar. Snappy bitterness with bitter bread crust. Sweet cream, sour milk and soy milk made for some odd layers.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2009
Bottle at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Black, firm tanned head leaving tight lace. Hint of sourness and glue on the nose, spiciness, dark cocoa, gingerbread. Flavor has very nice mellow dark chocolate & coffee, coal, little licorice. Long roasty finish with cardamon. Dry and burned, but still extremely balanced. Medium to full bodied, silky soft carbonation. A great porter, love those spices

Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is nearly opaque black, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, coffee, dark chocolate), with notes of vanilla, cassis, cedar. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, creamy/oily texture, soft/lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Looks great and smells fairly good, but it’s got a strong sour twang that doesn’t seem right. Kinda fun to sniff and look at, but I couldn’t bring myself to drink much.

marcus (6489) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 18, 2009
This black ale poured with a massive tan head and a dark bread and plum aroma. There is a creamy treacle and licorice flavor with some coffee and a little chocolate. Very delicious.

Maria (10143) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2009
It’s black with a huge, creamy and nougat colored head. The aroma has notes of hart roasted malt, chocolate, rubber, licorice and fennel. The flavor is slightly sweet with notes of hard roasted malt, chocolate, rye bread, licorice and fennel. In some ways I find it a bit difficult to describe/pin point, but nice it is.

Aquilo (541) - Berkeley, California, USA - OCT 17, 2009
Pours pitch black with a thick tan head. Aroma is intriguing. There are the usual roasty malts, chocolate, dried fruit, and then there is a sharp grainy aroma that I can only assume comes from the rye. Flavor is very mellow and balanced. Chocolate, coffee, rye. Very smooth, velvety finish. Delightful.

Some chocolate. Roast. Not an intense heavy body, but a nice malty, toasty porter. A bit of pumpernickel bread in it too!
