COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: De mørke øl passer rigtigt godt til den mørke årstid. Hornbeer Winterporter er ingen undtagelse. Øllet er brygget på paleale-, münchen-, karamel-, chokolade- og ristet malt og der er brugt rigeligt med dansk bihonning. Vi har humlet moderat. Hornbeer Winterporter bør serveres ikke alt for kold – 12-15 grader er passende. Den passer rigtigt godt til desserter, til ostebord og helt alene

Brewhemia (15) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 17, 2014
I liked the almost black color with a nice dark head. Awful aroma of sour dishcloth. Did not make me want to take a sip. The taste wasn’t quite as awful though but not good. Got some taste of bark beside the dishcloth taste. Not a good porter in my taste.

SlackerMads (1259) - DENMARK - MAR 1, 2014
Tap @ Tap10. Black, small tan head. Heavy roasted malt, light smoke, charcoal, bitter dark chocolate, vanilla, dried elderflowers. Medium/full body, oily texture, medium carbonation. Clean. Light dry and lingering bitter finish. Perhaps simple, but it works. Less is more, and I will have one more to enjoy the walk home.

Finn (3807) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Drukket på RV124 3 Jul 13. Svart. Høyt mokkafarget skum som etterlater litt lacing. Aroma av lakris. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken er søt kaffe med innslag av vanilje. Blir nesten umerkelig bitter i ettersmaken og avslutter litt syrlig. KI=6.

CapFlu (4370) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Lasting creamy brown body with an opaque body. Nose of ash. Very roasted, dry, gritty and ashtray. Some sweetness but overall pretty yummy and dry. Amazing job hiding the nearly 9% ABV.

mcberko (5378) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2014
500mL bottle, pours black with a medium tan / light brown bubbly head. Aroma is fairly subtle, with light roast, some burnt caramel and dry cocoa. Flavour is more or less the same, resembling more of a stout than a porter due to the roastiness, with an earthy quality that sort of resembles BO towards the end. Decent one, but a bit off the mark.

Osprey87 (1186) - London via, WALES - JAN 25, 2014
Keg at Craft Brixton. Black with a beige head that doesn’t endure. Smell - not much going on - ash, hops, TCP. Body is medium, carbonation medium. Taste - ach, TCP abounds…caramel coffee in the background is taken over by TCP. Something must have gone wrong here, but it’s still drinkable. I still managed my half-pint, but I resented paying £6 for it!

Sparf (101) - Östersund, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2014
Torr choklad och kola, kaffe och sötaktig ört känns i doften. Kunde varit något större. Kompakt svart öl med tätt, varaktigt skum. Perfekt för stilen. Smaken bjuder på rostad malt, aning lakrits och en mild mix av kaffe och choklad. Kroppen är medelfyllig och har en mjuk kolsyra. Eftersmaken är trevligt kaffetät med en mild beska.

Foffern (1070) - Bodø, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle at home. One year old. Pours a very deep brown to black colour with a light brown, medium head. Roasted aroma with coffee, chocolate truffles and some lactose. The flavour still has a lot of roasted malt with a touch of something sweet. Nice lingering taste, and in the aftertaste there’s some hops and licorice. Slick and soft mouthfeel, and has a light bitterness. A well-balanced strong porter with a nice roasted touch.

Ripley93 (25) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle. Fragrant and slightly spicy aroma, crap loads of roasted and caramel malts. Notes of chocolate and licorice. Smooth mouthfeel with a dry finish. The malt character of this beer is truly wonderful. Honey and well integrated alcohol rounds it off. Excellent.

Gorm (875) - Sandnes, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2013
Sort farve med beige skum. Lukt av malt, bek, lakris og kaffe. Smak av malt, sjokolade og kaffe. Melkebaren.
