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.

This one is amazing. I’m completely in love with it. It’s got roasted and coffee flavors without being too harsh. Subtle hints of spices to it that elevate it to a whole new level. EXCELLENT brew.

Bottiglia. Miglior porter mai bevuta? Assolutamente si! I nordeuropei sono maestri nel genere.

Comes out of the bottle (foaming like nobody’s business!) a very dark sable, only a whisker above black, with a very thick, fine-bubbled, light beige head. Rich aroma is smoky with an overtone of fresh pumpernickel bread and hints of malt and molasses. Mouth-filling flavor is like liquid pumpernickel with mocha and molasses undertones and just a teeny hint of hops and a whisper of sweetness. Lively, fizzy texture is fairly smooth and leaves a nice tingle.

Daggone, I feel guilty about raiting this as high as a 4.6, but the numbers don’t lie... LOL.... On the trainer for the first period of this olympic GOLD game, stress carried on despite this, and in the second period when I opted for a bio-chemical approach to the intensity, since I "needed a beer here," I suppose the label caught my attention. Been sitting on this for a while now. Bottle from SL. Freaking great pour, big huge head, slowly developing, but then it just kept on coming and coming. Choco colored on top of a great big dark brown-black body, intense looking. Aroma was strong full roast, chocolate, minty styrofoam hops. The flavor was big and bold, yet totally smooth, all the aroma elements mixed in, I guess pumpernickel was in there too, but heck, I’d certainly not be able to place that if it didn’t read that on the label. The mouthfeel may have been the best, dry finish to a smooth and silky body, just hearty, feeling almost like an oatmeal stout, rich, great, highly drinkable. Fantastic stuff! If it was rare and available by hand-bottle international trading only, this would be up there!!!!! GO, USA!!!!!! (Stress still high!)

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1 pint .9oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label has a list of ingredients and the abv% (7.5). Appearance: On top of a very dark brown to black body sits a tall thick and very creamy head. The tan colored head hangs on forever and makes lots of thick sticky lacing that coast the glass. Smell: The aroma is wonderful and inviting right from the poop of the cap. It is full of rich chocolately and dark bready maltiness with a hint of black licorice. Taste/Palate: Not to be outdone by the aroma its medium to full body is packed with tasty chocolate like maltiness with dark roasted notes and dark bready rye malt flavors. I am also picking up some light hints of black licorice or star anise, as well as a very slight hint of caraway seed. All of this is wrapped up in pleasant mellow boozy warmth that blends right into the finish with some nice earthy hop flavor and moderate bitterness. The palate is maybe a touch light but still very enjoyable and smooth. Notes: This porter is outstanding in my opinion and would definitely recommend it. I will also have to seek it out again as it was the last bottle at the beer store and it has not been restocked.

THOUGHTS: Brilliant. I was disappointed when I looked this beer up because the guy at the store told me it was a Nøgne Ø, but I tasted it as was very surprised and pleased. Reminded me or Tröegs Dead Reckoning Porter and was a little like Beer Geek Breakfast. It’s crazy that not many others think this smells or tastes like pumpernickel bread, because it does. It was way better than I ever expected. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark brown that was an opaque black in the glass with a large, light brown head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma was moderate to heavy dark bread, pumpernickel, roasted and burnt malts and rye; a little less chocolate and coffee; and licorice and cola. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and bitter; while the finish was slightly sweet and rather bitter. There was roasted malt, dark bread, pumpernickel, rye, dark fruit, licorice, coffee, and a little bitter chocolate. The medium to full body that leaned more toward full was a bit oily, but somewhat creamy had fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.

500 ml bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown with about a 2 inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. Aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate, pumpernickel bread and some caramel. The taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some coffee and charred/burnt malt in there. The brew has a good lingering bitter roasty/burnt finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s coating and creamy, and it’s well carbonated. Drinkability is good, it goes down easy and it’s smooth. I think it’s a pretty good brew overall, I recommend it. Due to the price it’s not something I’d drink all the time, but I would definitely buy this again in the future.

bottle from superdave on 4/18/10. very dark nearly opaque black with an orange tinted pale brown head. there’s a nice rich, mellow and sweet smoky aroma mixed with chocolate, mint, caraway seed, roast and some sourness. the flavor is the same... very rich and chocolate-y with a nice ashiness and earthy spiciness on the finish. the body is full for a ’regular’ porter... smooth and rich yet crisp, hoppy and dry. 8.5/5/8.5/5/17/4.4
