This beer is a robust porter with lots of dark malts of various kinds with a smooth taste and a nice fruitiness from the hops and a dryish aftertaste that lingers. 34 IBU’s

larsga (6930) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 25, 2005
Poured so carefully by the host that it had no head; deep dark wine-red body. Deep, firm, sweet, chocolate, toffee and coffee aroma. Almost too sweet. Deep, sweet (again, I know) taste, of burnt, toffee, with chocolate overtones. Faintly watery. Fades into lingering burntness, with lots of coffee. Very nice, although too sweet, and perhaps too clinging, for a proper porter. In the end, this is quite good.

rlgk (15335) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2005
Dark brown, small but lasting offwhite head. Nutty and milky aroma, malty, some peanuts, vanilla and creamy notes. Flavor is nutty and milky. A bit thin, hoppy and with a hoppy finish along with some coffee and cocoa.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2005
Roastiness in the aroma is strongly suggestive of coffee and chocolate. Opaque dark brown body with large bubbled tan head that recedes to ring. Roasty, somewhat chalky flavour is quite bitter with some finishing sweetness. Medium body with lively, crisp carbonation. Bottle sampled at RBESG 2005.

JCW (1277) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2005
Bottle, thanks Per. Very dark in color for a porter, stoutish. Flavor/aroma was coffeeish and roasty mostly with touches of chocolate. Flavor was slightly salty and acidic. Burnt flavor on the finish.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2005
Bottle. Quite nice, but it just felt a bit thin. Some nice smooth chocolate characters, slightly roasty towards the finish. Finishes a bit short. With a bit more body this could have been quite good.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2005
Bottled. Fast disappearing head. Sweet and slightly metallic aroma. Flavor is sweet with notes of chocolate. Watery mouth feel. OK, but could use more attitude.

Engelsmann (651) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2005
