Pour is black with a small off-white head. Aroma is very sweet and malty with subtle roast and smoke notes in the background. Flavor is a bit more mellow than I would have expected with notes of raisins, cherries, and chocolate.

Thanks Geist. Chocolate and a bit of sweetness. Roast and mild oxidation and a slight oakish character. Light and not enough depth.

The beer is dark brown with a quarter inch of oily beige head. The aroma offers smoke, booze, oak. Reminiscent of a rauchbier. Smoke presence throughout with only a hint of sausage. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty tasty beer. I’m glad I got to try it.

Bottle 65 cl. Pours a cloudy opaque dark brown with a beige head. Roasty nose, a little manure and smoke. Full body, a little low in carbonation, roast and a little chocolate. Fairly discreet hopping. But a good strong Porter. 280712

Bottle @ Fanø Slumber Party, 2012.
Pours muddy dark brown with a small, creamy beige head. Aroma has sweet malts, chewy, liqourice, smoke, light roasted malts. Medium carbonation, fine dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is rather dry, chocolate, liqourice, no smoke really. Still a very fine drink.
