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

berlinoise2go (688) - NORWAY - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle (50cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Very dark brown colour. Fingerthick offwhite head, quite good retention. Aroma of roasted malt, wood, licorice, smoked meat, caramel (maybe a hint of honey). Pleasantly soft palate, medium/full body, soft carbonation. Semi-sweet aroma that becomes rapidly drier and more roasted bitter - in a good way, giving an overall well-balanced impression.

Bottle 50 cl, BBE 12.11.2015. Pours very dark brown in color with thin tan head. Roasted malts, mocha and milk chocolate in aroma. Nice. But the taste is even better. Roasted malts again, some chocolate, but more in the vein of bitter chocolate this time at first, some slightly aged wood also. Light notes of salty licorice also. Tasty and the alcohol is well hidden. Creamy, mocha, sligthly burnt in aftertaste also. There is some element that remains untold, can’t really put my finger on it, but it feels like something ’sharp’.

Erasmus_ro (2509) - Alabama, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle. Thanks tstm. Pours pretty much black with a small dark mocha-colored head. Aroma is pretty porter-like. Roasted malt, coffee, light chocolate. A lot of roast. Taste is very sweet and really shows that there’s something added to it. Still very roasted, some coffee and chocolate, but much sweeter than these kinds of things usually. The sweetness of the honey is very much in the forefront even if the flavor isn’t so much. Perhaps too sweet for a 500ml bottle, unless you’re sharing it. Palate is full and smooth.

BelgiskOlklub (1048) - Viby J, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2012
Black hazy body and a large creamy dark brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, honey, prunes. The taste is heavy sweet and medium bitter. Well balanced and a not to bitter finish. Full body and a creamy texture.

Not much odor, but more flavor and taste. Maybe not the tastiest Porter but clearly approved. Not much more.

anchr (18) - Trondheim, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2012
Lots of ’dark’ aromas, but also significant bitterness, notwithstanding what the label says. The honey is hardly detectable. It’s a good and a nice beer, but it is perhaps a bit brutal, which is hardly surprising, given the origin.

mile (3810) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown, small to average and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty - some oat and sweetish aroma, some caramel, roasted malt - faint burnt malt, light chocolate and light hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty - some oat and sweetish flavor, light caramel, roasted malt - faint burnt malt, some chocolate and light hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty - some oat and lightly sweetish, roasted malt - some burnt malt, light chocolate and light hoppyness, faint alcohol. Not too sweet IP - not too much coffee, roastiness makes the finish bit drier.
