Alla spina al Beershock di Viterbo. Scura, schiuma poco persistente, al naso note di cacao e cannella, corpo robusto, finale amaro persistente. Perfettamente in stile, da provare sicuramente.

tabernae (178) - Latina, ITALY - JUL 29, 2011
Ottima davvero questa porter, nel bicchiere è color marrone scuro con una bella schiuma beige, al naso il cioccolato è predominante, ma è al palato che la birra da il meglio di se, speziata, come poche porter hanno il coraggio di fare, cannella, un pò di noce moscata, da riprovare e riprovare.

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!

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2009
Tap @ Ølfestival, Esbjerg, 2009.
Pours completely black with an impressive, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma is sweet with notes of coffee, sweet roasted malts and a lovely dose of Christmas-y spices (especially cinnamon). Medium carbonation, lovely creamy palate. Super Christmas-y flavour, lots of cinnamon (but never really too much), light coriander, super chocolate and lightly roasted. Really lovely!

From tap at Esbjerg beer festival and draught at the brewery. Pours a black colur with a nice light brown well lasting head leaving a god lacing. Pleasanr aroma of roasted malt and coffeee with spices (plenty of cinnamon). Good filling smooth mouthfeel. The flavour has a goodsoft roasty maltiness with coffee, spices, some chocolate, dark fruits and a pleasant soft sweet roasty spiced coffee finish. Great brew!

Christian (11027) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2009
Black with a red hue. Lasting tan head. Aroma of chocolate with cinnamon and vanilla. Sweet milk chocolate flavour with vanilla and cinnamon, dried fruits and coffee notes. Impressive clean and balanced flavour where each component stands out individually.

It’s pitch black with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, coffeee, vanilla and little different Christmas spice, but not in a dominating way. The flavor is moderately sweet with notes of roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, the cinnamon is almost not there, but it’s dryness gives it away. I also find other Christmans spices, and I think this is a “Christmassy” beer in the right way, harmonic and nice without a the entire self of spices dropped into the brew.
