Danish: En engelsk inspireret porter. Porteren er en kulsort øl med chokoladefarver skum. Kraftig duft og smagsnoter af mørk chokolade og hårdt ristet kaffe. Porteren er tilsat røget malt og god mængde humle, der giver en fin kompleksitet.

500ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
6 Quite grainy aroma
4 Black even in a narrow class. Tan fizzy head.
7 Very roasted and burnt taste, quite grainy at first, but more burnt later on. A little harsh and papery. Not getting much coffee or choc. Perhaps some very stale coffee.
3 Carbonation lively. Finish an bit acrid due to ashiness. Hops there too, but not enough to win.
13 Not one to drink in any quantity, as it’s a bit overpowering

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 14, 2010
From tap@Lord Nelson, København. Dense tan cream head. Ruby shaded, black body. Subtle aromas of sourish dark fruits, light ashy dark malts and a soft roastedness. Coffee-ish and roasted malt flavor. Some smoke notes and a gentle bitterness. Very smooth and creamy in the mouth, with a soft sparkling carbonation. Mid-bodied. Finishes dry and light bitter. Elegant and well-crafted.

Draught. Nice porter with all the basics covered. Roasted, toated and smoked with everything that’s expected with it. Solid and doesn’t let you down without being a standout porter.
