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

jeverszeuge (625) - GERMANY - AUG 12, 2012
# 3114 ersma: 28 grad hatte es heute, also der optimale zeitpunkt für ein schönes, dunkles weichnachtsbier mit schokomalz und honig. pechschwarz im glas, etwas beiger schaum, der sich aber weitestgehend zurückzieht. der rest sieht aus wie espresso. der geruch ist röstmalzig-süßlich mit aromen von schoko, kirsche und vanille. der antrunk ist ebenfalls röstmalzig-süßlich. schoko und lakritz sowie karamell sind zu vermelden. die mitte wird herber, lakritz und schoko bestimmen aber den geschmack bis in den abgang. der wird karamelliger, hier auch etwas trockenobst und vanille. die flasche mit dem etikett von gunhild rasmussen ist etwas schlichter als gewohnt, aber ansehnlich. fazit: vom honig merkt man weniger. ansonsten ein schönes, rundes porter, dem es aber etwas an tiefgang fehlt. gut trinkbar. 11,11,10,10,11,10 - 10,30 - 12/8/12

omhper (19926) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2012
Bottled. Near black, minimal head. Aroma of molasses and cocoa. Mid sweet with near full body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Milk chocolate and treacle, some tin in a finish with low bitterness.

rarbring (1530) - Linköping, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2012


The beer is black with brown hints, has a tan head that leaves little lacing but good curtains.

Smelling of toast, roasted coffee and chocolate, dark and lighter.

Burned bread, dark fruits, strong coffee, dark chocolate.

Medium carbonation, soft with a big body, a slightly dry finish.

In all a decent porter, to me more Baltic than American.

Bottle 500 ml

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2012
160211: Black color with a good beige head. Good roasted aroma. Sweet and bitter roasted taste.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2012
A small tan froth settles above the deepest brown hue and diminishes to nothing within a minute or two. We’re left with a malt monster, throwing liquorice and sugary molasses notes amidst a rather cold filter coffee roasted malt foundation that is not especially attractive. Sweet indeed, it even proposes vanilla/cocoa notes that would fit a bourbon barrel ale, maintaining its carbonation level on the low side and that accentuates the alcohol feel and thus the sweetness further, most of the bitterness seemingly coming from the roast. Rather loose malts and nowhere near decadent for an almost 9% strong dark ale. I have appreciated a lot of the Hornbeer stuff and particularly they black ales, so while a relatively good beer, it feels below what I have come to expect from them.

gunnar (5656) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with a big creamy tanned head. Aroma of roasted malts, toffee and coffee. Taste is dominated by a lovely smooth liquorice, some vague roasted coffee. Delightful from start to end.

pilsnerrogge (2533) - Finspång, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2012
Bottled:
Pours black with a small head. Aroma is cocoa, coffee, honey and a little bit of smoke. Dry, roasted flavour of ash and cold coffee. Harsh finish. Not one of Hornbeers greater moments.

laiti (5953) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2012
50 cl bottle @ hotel room, copenhagen, BBE 08.10.2014
Aroma has coffee and some sweetish, roasted malt. Flavour is sweet and roasted with coffee and some vanilla. A bit thin palate for this ABV. Too sweet and sticky stuff.

tiong (4009) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2012
500ml bottle from Kihoskh

Pours pitch black with a small white head. Aroma of licorice, roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is roasty and malty with chocolate, salty licorice notes. Finish is salty and chocolatey. Okay.

lusikka (6523) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2012
500 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with an off-white head. Weak aroma of roasted malts and some nuts. Flavour of roasted malts, nuts, cocoa and cardboard. Medium bodied, thin mouthfeel and a roasty cocoa finish. Disturbing notes ruin the show.
