COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Tanken bag “Mřrke” er opstĺet ud fra mit řnske om at skabe en řl, der har de samme kvaliteter som det mřrke, krydrede og sřdlige pumpernickel rugbrřd. Den er derfor brygget med bl.a. maltet rug, mřrkt sukker og fennikelfrř og kun let humlet.

Scipio (820) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Pours black with a big, foamy tan head. Aroma is stronger and very enticing, with dark chocolate, mint, coffee, raisin, and licorice. Taste is plenty of chocolate and even more coffee, along with hints of licorice. Aftertaste is the same but with more chocolate and lasts a long time. This one has a very syrupy texture. Medium in body with some subtle carbonation. Some bitterness as well. I thought this was very good.

Alengrin (4429) - BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2016
Danish porter brewed in Norway, intending to imitate the taste of Pumpernickel, a German type of rye bread. Fairly thin but stable, creamy, densely structured, pale beige head opening rapidly in the middle but retaining in a steady rim around the glass and a ’veil’ of tan foam in the middle; black robe with mahogany edges only visible under bright light. Spicy and bready aroma of dried plums, soggy rye bread, toast, strong presence of salmiak candy, bayleaf, old dry thyme, old grapefruit peel, leather, sage, dried black olives, bitter cocoa, dry earth, elderberry, juniper berries, pine wood, old cigars, dried tree leaves, black tea, roasted peanuts, hazelnut shells. Onset of dried fruits (fig, raisin) but very low in sweetness, much more dominated by dried seaweed- and cured meat-like umami with a soft background sourishness, softly carbonated, lightly oily and smooth mouthfeel, brief caramelly touch quickly turning toasted bitter with this spicy rye quality to it and eventually becoming very stout-like roasted bitter (but more in the sense of burnt toast than e.g. coffee), enhanced by a spicy, leafy, slightly resinous hop bitterness ensuring an aromatic, very dry, long aftertaste where it all comes together, including impressions of old dried juniper berries and dry red wine. Not sure how this mirrors Pumpernickel bread, but in any case this is a rich, interesting porter with enough ’black’ maltiness or roasted bitterness to qualify as a stout - a common phenomenon in modern craft beer culture. Very enjoyable.

Draft @ Bootleggers CPH // 10 cl tulip taster Pours dark brown/black with a reasonably-sized tan head. Rye malt seems to dominate the aroma with hints to the rest of the malt profile and fennel/liquorice, but it seems like mostly sweet rye. The taste follows this pattern, and the beer does not have any appreciable hop presence in this respect either. A lot of people apparently like it, and it is really not bad, but it also appears quite gimmicky to me, and the whole rye thing does not fall into my taste.

Fules (725) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 18, 2016
Gyönyörű, hatalmas, örökké tartó barna hab, fekete szín. Kávés, aszaltgyümölcsös illatvilág. Szenzációs, selymes, kávés, csokis ízbomba, aszalt gyümölcsökkel a háttérben. Testes, tökéletes egyensúlyú, nagyon finom sör, közepes, nem tolakodó keserűvel, enyhe szénsavtartalommal.

brnandersen (3238) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2016
Draught at Taphouse, Cph. Pitch black with a thin, tanned head. Roasted aroma with dark malts, liquorice, coffee, chocolate, caramel malts, rye, dark sugars and spicy hints. Taste is lightly bitter. Full body with an oily texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes slightly dry with with dark malts, liquorice and fruity spicy hints. Red berries. Excellent Porter. Glad I finally could try this Danish micro brew classic.

500 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99 originally years ago and retried recently. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, dark chocolate, earthy bitterness, dark grainy rye, I don’t know if I would call this pumpernickel or not, ashy, decent porter nonetheless.
