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.

Helt igennem en fantastisk porter. Klart den bedste jeg hidtil har smagt. Og dårligere bliver den ikke af, at nyde på Halsnæs bryghus på havnen i Hundested. Lakris/kaffe/let røg??

Rating #326, sample from Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010

Amazing porter from a brewery I had never before heard of, and they apparently almost only distribute the beer locally. The beer was pitch black with a yellowish medium high head. Aroma has everything I want in a porter - liqourice, coffee, smoke, tar, and old rope. Flavor was very likewise just more complex, maybe with some dark chocolate added to it. Finish was solid bitter, and palate thick and creamy. A very good porter in the same class and taste-style as the beloved and classic "Limfjordsporter" - maybe even a little better! Fantastic.

Smells fine of coffee notes mixed with a little dark chocolate. The taste is very well balanced with hard toasted malt, light coffee tones that carry over into dark bitter chocolate, then a slight smoked malt stand out and return to a stronger coffee flavor with good hoppy aftertaste.

Appears very dark with a +3 finger light brown head which disappear slowly. Aroma pleasant with notes of dark berries, coffee and sweetness from malts. Taste is liquorice, coffee, smoked malt and little spicy. very well balanced beer with nice bitterness from hops and roasted malts. I enjoy this baltic porter much! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Ørsted Ølbar. Very dark brown with a small, creamy head. Nice chocolate aroma, moderate roast. Bitter chocolate flavours, some acidity, nicely balanced. Full-bodied. A great beer.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2011 Bottle. Black with two finger foam. Roasted tar- like licorice aroma. Long bitter-fresh crisp taste. Pleasant harbourbrew. Second tasting just as well or better

A fruity smelling, nice foam, dark beer of the porter type. The beer is like the fishermans goodlooking daughter. Sweet fruity and with a taste of licorice with a small peppermint overtone. Down to earth but too refined for working in a harbor. A nice beer for nice homes and relaxed company. Even for your own company, dvelling in introvert reflections.

esox (1226) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 17, 2012
Bottled. Very dark brown beer with a creamy and lacy head. The aroma is rich in bready maltiness with soft and chocolatey roastedness and a hint of smoke. Starts sweetish but dries as the bitterness increases in the finish. Dark ripes, a hint of yeasty spiciness and some molasses in the finish. Medium to full bodied, silky texture. Very nice porter.

0,5 L, flaske, 7,6 % ABV, Batch no 0916A, BB 25/07/15, overdraget af Peter Sonne på fØL 2015 - tak! 11. februar 2015. Sort, rolig og ufiltreret Imperial Porter med høj og flot moccafarvet skumkrone, 4-5 cm tykkelse. Svinder til 1/2 - 1/1 cm tykkelse efter en halv snes minutter. Aroma: sandkage, milde og lette kaffe-noter, chokolade. Smag: mild/let til medium sødme og medium bitterhed. Let røget uden at være overdøvende. Intet surt eller salt. Meget fin balance. Kroppen er mellem fyldig, karboneringen klart under medium niveau, mundfølelsen blød og lækker. Brygget har en cremet konsistens. Skulle prøves til en isdessert én dag, og er i sig selv ganske lækker og velsmagende. Lækker porter i en interessant katagori af øl.
