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.

Scipio (719) - 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.

Tap. Ochre creamy long-lasting head, thick lace. Dark roasted malts, black cyrup, dark cacao. Aroma has dark malts, ryebread and hints of herbs. Fast strike of liqourice. Pleasant balance, strong and smooth. Full palate is stong and bity, thick with lots of proteines. Long bitter and malty after taste. Excellent porter!

Tap @ Fairbar. Pitch black pour with a tiny tan head. Nose has lots of roast and some syrupy sweetness. Taste has ryebread, quite heavy roast, some tar and light licorice. Pretty tasty!

jookos (2607) - FINLAND - NOV 27, 2014
Tap@københavn. Dark brown, dirty tan top. Bit vegetal, strange spicy nose with sort of green beans, nutmeg, vinous tones. Smooth soft body, chocolate, soft roast. Great body, strange flavour. Long finish, nice.

Shark_Pants (262) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from Barny’s. Pours opaque cola with coffee head. Roasty and ashy aromas, with cocoa. Taste is toffee, caramel, coffee, dark chocolate, sherry, hint of pumpernickel with some charred meat in the very dry finish. Light bodied. Really fantastic porter.

nogva (16) - NORWAY - NOV 15, 2014
On tap at Crowbar. Pours black with a light brown head. Vinous aroma of coffee and bread. Full body, oily feel, soft carbonation. Taste starts off surprisingly dry with dark chocolate and licorice, but ends with a delicious finish with sherry notes.

ads135 (3078) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - NOV 11, 2014
A fantastic porter, though its difficult to say what the pumpernickel did for the beer. Thicker than usual bready base, but the cocoa is still dominant.

Bottle. Not the freshest bottle, but it still looked good in a glass and tasted ok. Would like to try again fresh.

Attractive basically black with inch and a half of brown bubbly head. Aromas the usual roast, toast, cocoa, espresso. Maybe clove & nutmeg. Taste is big, bold, bittersweet. Fruitier than the aroma suggests. Waves of different flavours roll over as it warms up in the mouth. Rye gives is a bit of a sharper, peppery character.

radiomgb (2368) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
500ml bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Near black in colour, thin but lasting beige head, good lacing. Aroma is or rye, roast, moderate sweetness, some dark chocolate. Flavour is of rye, some smoke, light sweetness, chocolate and some espresso. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, sweet, some roast. I like this one quite a bit, although it could use more rye.
