Fanø Kunstner Øl nr. 1, i lokal daglig tale kendt som "Johnny Madsen", er en fantastisk imperial porter, brygget med espresso, franske egeflager, Cheery-Heringer og diverse andre lækkerier. Øllen har været en kæmpe succes, og blev blandt de 5 bedste nye danske øl over 6% i Danmark brygget i år 2011.

Rune (10928) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2012
330ml bottle ,batch 300, bought at Ølbutikken in Copenhagen in May this year. Oily pour revealing a huge, bubbly brownish head with good retention and fine lacework to the glass. Jet black body. Aroma of chocolate and cocoa. Gentle confectionery chocolate to the taste buds. The sweetness is downplayed by dark fruits and a vibe of roasted bitterness. Very smooth in the mouth. Excellent Yuletide sipper (Tromsø, 26.12.2012).

0,33 l bottle at Timo A’s. Black color. Sweet aroma of salty licorice, dark fruits. Firm roasty flavor with coffee, rum, warming alcohol. Woody spices (clove, smoke) in finish. Full body. Not so drinkable but still a nice sipper.

Bottle with many thanks to Ramy. Pours black with brown head. Nose is fantastic - lots of fudge brownie, smoked chocolate malt, smoked licorice, vanilla, cinnamon, gingerbread christmas cookie and mild spice. Taste follows suit albeit slightly less pronounced. Medium body. Well balanced.

Ousen (32) - , DENMARK - DEC 7, 2012
Pitch black with a massive reddish brown head that lasts. Aroma of dark fruit with alcohol and malty notes. Taste is malty, roasty, complex with light acidity from cherries. The taste lingers in the mouth a while leaving rich fruity notes and a hint of bitterness. Nice beer.

Bottle. Looks very good! Black with a big brown head. Heavy roasty notes in aroma, and also small notes of licorice, red wine and milk chocolate. Taste is dark and roasted at first. Very chocolaty with some vinousity and a touch of hops in the finish. And coffee!

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Serving: 330 ml. bottle via Papsoe. Thanks Henrik! It pours almost pitch black with a monsterous brown head. The nose is lighter than I was expecting given the looks of this brew. Light roasted malt, cocoa, and light dried fruit notes. The flavor brings a big blast of roasted bitterness. There is light smoke, burnt notes, earth, a slight metallic twinge, and a little boozy fruitiness. Lots going on in this one. Definitely full bodied with lots of smooth carbonation. Very nice indeed.
