COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2009
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.

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 (10123) - 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 (533) - 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!

Thick, rich and dark, Beer Here’s Mørke Pumpernickel Porter is a delicious porter with a big roasted malt flavor. The beer pours very dark brown, opaquely black in the glass. There’s a thick mocha-colored head that laces the sides of the glass with a mass of bubbles as I drink it. The aroma is sweet, roasted malt but noticeably simpler than the flavor. The flavor is round and full. There are notes of black coffee, dark chocolate, hot cocoa and burnt caramel in the malt. The hops add a hint of earth and minerals. The beer’s thick, creamy mouthfeel accentuates the flavor very well. It reminds me quite a bit of a bitter, complex (and cold) cup of hot cocoa. I don’t know how it was brewed, how pumpernickel was utilized, but it works exceptionally well. Without knowing the name of the beer, I’m not sure that I’d really pick up on it, but there do seem to be some rich toasted bread flavors in the beer. The creamy mouthfeel married with the rich malt flavors is really what makes this beer stand out. Absolutely delicious porter.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 7, 2009
Sampled on 12/2/2009. This porter pours an eclipse black color from a 50cl bottle. Medium sized tan foamy head, with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is coffee and chocolate, some dark malt. A medium bodied Porter. The malts are chocolate and coffee, some rye and fruit. The hops are earthy and floral. Nice balance. Good carbonation. Very nice porter, the touch of spiciness from the rye adds to the coffee and chocolate. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
