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

Skinnyviking (7069) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2011
Bottle. High white creamy lasting head. Black body. Roasted malt choccolate aroma with a heavy note of honey. Sweet honey choccolate roasted malt flavor with a mild hops bitterness and just a hint of coffee. Low carbonation, short sweet aftertaste.

sebletitje (6711) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2011
50cl bottle @ Delirium. Brune claire, col moka. Bière surprenante et franchement bonne découverte. Arôme a de bonne note de malt fumé, réglisse, chocolat et malt grillé. Le tout garde aussi des fruits noirs ajoutant un peu d’amertume. Cette bière se déguste bien avec un profile axé sur la malt donnant un palais sec et cendre avec du malt grillé, chocolat, café et réglisse qui rejoignent le nez. Note aussi entre ce medley de malt et de réglisse une douceur mielleuse allant sur le sirop, le tout garde un fini distinct mélangeant les saveurs du malt avec une fine amertume de fruits noirs.

mcberko (6560) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2014
500mL bottle, pours black with a medium tan / light brown bubbly head. Aroma is fairly subtle, with light roast, some burnt caramel and dry cocoa. Flavour is more or less the same, resembling more of a stout than a porter due to the roastiness, with an earthy quality that sort of resembles BO towards the end. Decent one, but a bit off the mark.

Plovmand (6501) - Helsinge, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2010
Bottle kindly shared by Faroeviking. Pitch black body with a creamy tan head. The aroma is hops, dark fruit, lots of honey and light chocolate. Light roasted flavour with notes of honey, chocolate, berries and dark fruit like plum and raisin.

lusikka (6267) - 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.

Ernest (6231) - 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.

olio (6231) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 2, 2012
50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Nordic, Tampere. BBE 08.10.2014.
Pours dark red-brown color with medium sized beige head. Aroma of mild salty liquorice, roasted malts and mild mocha. Surprisingly bland aroma. Flavour has mild fruits, some dry chocolate, roasted malts and some faint vegetables. Medium carbonation, quite bland alltogether.

Rastacouere (6131) - 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.

KnutAlbert (6110) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2011
Deep dark beer. Coffee, smoke, liquorice. Wonderfully complex, reminds me of Nøgne Ø Sunturnbrew. Sweet and dry, full punch, coffee in the tail.
