(on tap @ Mikkeller Viktoriagade) Pours pitch black with medium, toffee head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Decent regeneration. Aroma is nicely smoothly roasted with notes of coffee and chocolate and a hint of smoke. Very smooth. Creamy texture, medium body, medium carbonation and a lingering, mildly sweet finish. Flavour has some ascerbicity from the roasting but it is complemented nicely by a carefully moderated residual sweetness that never gets cloying. A well balanced and quite drinkable porter.

"This robust porter had a little age on it, and was sweet-leaning in the aroma, and the flavor. Complex mix of malted chocolate, roast, and dark fruits. Great medium-full bodied feel without any alcohol heat. Nice bittersweet finish."

Light tan foam along dark brown to black brew. Aroma of bittersweet chocolate. Big roasty nose, oh this was wonderful. The big malt flavor and well balance roast to help balance. The coffee and toffee really shoots through. Great Brew!!!
