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

Rastacouere (6134) - 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 (5461) - 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 (2511) - 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 (5755) - 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 (3819) - 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 (6343) - 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.

Ocanatoledo (16) - SPAIN - MAY 4, 2012
Una especial recomendación de un amigo, no defraudó. Contundente con sabores de miel, tostados y café, espuma densa color café y un trago muy bebible pese al tipo de cerveza y la graduación. Con una buena carne se disfruta mucho, e incluso para el postre. Gran cerveza

Sigmund (5179) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2012
500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8.6%. Black colour, large to moderate tan head. Pleasant aroma of chocolate, caramel and black bread, also notes of mild coffee and honey. Smooth and soft flavour, plenty of chocolate and honey, without being cloyingly sweet. Mild roasty notes (coffee again), moderately roasty finish, low bitterness. Best at cellar temperature, very enjoyable.

Holmen1 (2573) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 30, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2012 500 ml shared bottle at Cardinal, april-12: Very tasty and fresh, with caramel, chocolate and honey. Smooth at 8,6%. Worth another try. Flaske fra Høkeren, delt med Astrid på hytta, nov-12: syrlig og sødmefylt kaffe i smaken. Stor, kremet munnfylde og veldig lang ettersmak.
