Bottle from Fonefan, thanks! Almost black and opague. Roast, cream and dark chocolate in the aroma. Medium to full bodied. Creamy roasty flavor with dried fruit and lots of dark chocolate. Well balanced porter, not too sweet and full of flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
09-JUL-2011, bottle @Ulkløbben Summerparty. Served by the brewer.
Black with brown head.
Licorice and some smoke on the nose.
Taste is roasted, again with some smoke but just enough to make it interesting.
Sweet with low carbonation and full mouthfeel. Some hops ends it all and adds to the bitterness.
Quite easy drinking for a strong porter.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(50 cl bottle from Knud Bahr) Pours a deep black with rich, thick toffee head that laces the glass heavily. Pleasant, smooth aroma of toasted malt, licorice, coffee and chocolate. The texture is creamy with soft carbonation. Taste is full-bodied, medium bitter with a bitter finish. A very pleasant brew. (ed. note: The name for this beer is actually spelled "vodbinder" in Danish, not "vådbinder")

Tap @ Ørstad Bar, Copenhagen. Pours a near black body with a small tanned head. Aroma is sweet and roasted with notes of coffee and some thin and sour oaky notes. Medium-bodied, has a creamy mouthfeeling and it’s softly carbonated. Taste quite nice with a nice amount of roasted malts, thin coffee, some licorice hints, chocolate and has a light hopy finish and a dry and almost smoky aftertaste with notes of alcohol.

Tap. Jet black with curtains of light tan lacing after a rich tan head. Lightly roasted aroma with some light sweetness as well. Bready and a bit yeasty to go along with the roast and dark chocolate in the flavor, bit of dark fruit as well. Mediumish body. Not bad stuff at all.
