3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lovely aroma of roasted malt and licorice in limited quantities. The taste is evident of English liquorice and have little roasted malt in after taste. Rich and bold porter tastes long liquorice. Finally, a beer that dare to live up to its name. I have tasted too much beer called something with smoke, chili, etc. we really have to look far for the taste. It does not apply to this licorice porter - it has a lot of liquorice in themselves and in a way that still expresses it as a porter. It can’t be shown more accurately.

Impressive beer for the low alcohol. Full bodied, plenty of liquorice, hints of chocolate. The brewery’s best beer...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,5 L, flaske, denne version på 6,1 % ABV, BB 29/01/17, Batch # RØ533, købt på fØL 2015 i Frederikssund, 2. marts 2015.
Sort "olie" og ufiltreret Porter med minimal brun skumtop, som svinder til kun kant.
Fyldig aroma af brændte malte og masser af lakrids. Noget alkohol og tjære.
Fuldendt engelsk lakrids-fyldig smag, sødlig og bitter. Medium sødme og medium bitter.
Mellem fyldig krop med velafbalanceret karbonering under medium niveau, yderst delikat. Olieret konsistens.
Bittersød og let sur lang eftersmag.
Glimrende Porter, som kan nydes, som den er, men mon ikke, den skulle prøves til en omgang god vanilleis?

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Roasted aroma with mainly coffee, some vanilla and some chocolate, less liquorice than expected, but it is there in small quantities. Taste begins malty, a bit burnt and somewhat alcoholic but soon liquorice take over and make a long lasting intense liquorice finish. Nice porter with interesting complexetity in the earlier part of the taste, burnt, malty, bit charchetuery but that is unfourtunately soon overshadowed by the liquorice. However the liquorice taste is very nice so it is pretty okey anyway.
