Pours pitch black with brown head. Nose of sweet chocolates and malts, very appealing. Nice, smooth aroma of sweet chocolate, hints of caramel and balanced coffee presence. Right up my alley! You Danish people know what you’re doing!

Nice, quite christmasy porter.

tfredvik (1120) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2012
Black body with a large, creamy head that unfortunately is short-lived and doesn’t leave much lacing. It never completely disappears, though. Strong delicious aroma with a thick chocolatey feel, roasted notes, coffee, fruits, sweet sweet vanilla, with some faint hoppy and yeasty notes in the back. Light sweet taste that lasts into the aftertaste, the spicy finish is moderate bitter. The flavours are roasted with coffee notes and fruits upon a lovely gently spiced background. Medium to full body, pretty dry texture and soft carbonation. A very nice beer, I really like the way the spices are integrated into the flavour profile.

berlinoise2go (613) - NORWAY - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle (50cl) from Vinmonopolet, Oslo. 7.5% ABV. Small, but lasting light beige head that sticks nicely to the glass when swirling. Black colour. Aroma of roasted malt, licorice, cinnamon, smoked meat. Medium/full body, soft carbonation. Quite complex, semi-sweet ’meaty’ and spicy taste (cloves, aniseed, menthol) that becomes drier towards the finish. Well-balanced with high xmas factor.
