COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Der er fyret op under kedlerne med rigelige mængder bøgetræ da malten til dette bryg blev tørret.
Røgningen* giver øllet smag og duft af bål og bacon der blander sig smukt med den ristede malts chokolade- og kaffenuancer. Et unikt mørkt bryg der bør serveres tempereret (12-15 °C). *) Det hedder det altså. Brygget af røget bygmalt, rå byg, to slags karamelmalt og britisk chokolademalt, Northern Brewer og Fuggles humle samt vand.

Bottle (ChrisO Pre-GBBF2011 "Donkey Dork Lord" Shindig)
Rich smoky toasty roast - a great aroma. Beautifully dark and with a nice tight head. Roasted taste is bang on perfect for a porter. Palate soft, smooth and full. Smokiness and roastiness complement each other well in the mouth too. Super drinkable porter. So rich, no negatives at all.

Beer4000 (4565) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2011
Bottle @ Søgaards Bryghus. Dark brown, almost black body with a nice, creamy beige head. Delicate smoke aroma with roasted malt. Flavor of dark chocolate, roasted malt, caramel and hint of smoked sausages. Quite strong smoke flavor, still smooth and balanced, relatively sweet but in balance with the bitterness. Fine body and long smoked finish. A really nice smoked porter.

Scopey (7183) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2011
Bottle at chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig ’11. It pours red-brown, with a thin foamy white lace and moderate carbonation. The nose is smoky bacon, chocolate malt and HP sauce. The taste is smoked malt, caramel, charcoal, toffee, toasted brown bread, smoky bacon, chocolate and dark cherry, with a light smoky-bitter finish. It is not intensely smoky, which is actually a good thing. A very tasty, yet delicate smoked porter.

larsga (6260) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2011
Medium tan head. Deep dark red barely translucent body. Deep smoky milky chocolate pudding aroma is very harmonic. Dry-sweet roasty resiny milky chocolate pudding taste, again very harmonic. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry smoky resiny burnt aftertaste with chocolate and earth notes. Lovely! Highly drinkable and full of subtle flavours. (0.5l bottle, Skjold Burne, Århus.)
