4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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

Plummy goodness for the nose. Dark as a nordic winters night. Head is not bad. Not really as much chocolate and honey in the taste as you’d expect. though, Instead, the roasted malt really comes through and licorice is also a dominant feature. Warm and sweet it is not a bad nightcap wrapped in a blanket reading ancient tomes in front of the stove, this time of year.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Black with a white head. The aroma is full of chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is more of the same at first with some heavily roasted/burnt malt and chocolate notes. There is also a bit of pine and some off flavor I can’t really identify. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
