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

Sparf (175) - 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.

Duft av lakris, bek og sjokolade. Nesten sort av farge. Dekkende skum. Smak av lakris, vanilje og sjokolade.

Ernest (6729) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle from Kihoskh, Copenhagen (BB July 2014). Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is black (almost opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, caramel, roasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of vanilla, alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy/velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Good impy stout/porter...somewhat simple but very attractive nose (just the right amounts of the basics, with some flowery hop note for brightness), rich but drinkable, etc. Just a touch too sweet to drink a lot of, but very clean and tasty. Would buy this repeatedly if it were available back home.

The_Osprey (3241) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - 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!

Foffern (1431) - 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.

Sort farve med beige skum. Lukt av malt, bek, lakris og kaffe. Smak av malt, sjokolade og kaffe. Melkebaren.

PapaVillum (659) - Valby, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2013
50 cl, flaske, ukendt ABV, nydt på Christiania's Julemarked, 8. december 2013. Sort klar olie med minimalt flygtigt moccafarvet skum. Duft af kaffe, engelsk lakrids, brændt malt. Også svage noter af chokolade. Smagen er elskelig porter-bitter. Sød, bitter og tør-tør på én gang. Et afdæmpet kulsyreindhold, som en porter skal have. Hornbeer's høje niveau fornægter sig ikke, ej heller i denne øl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ripley93 (26) - 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.

Longmorn (5) - SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2013 does not count
What do you drink at a winternight? This porter will do the trick. Smooth as a falling snowflake. There is something odd with this beer thats satisfying in the palate...probable danish black winegums...yumyum
