Pours really really dark brown with a brown head. Aroma is somewhat shy but full of coffee notes and spices. Mouth is fresh and far from heavy, which is really nice for a porter of that strength. Flavors are again coffee, roasted malt and I’m starting to get the licorice now. Silky smooth, it goes down too easily, really. More complex than your average porter it is quite enjoyable, a mighty good one I should say!

MPA (913) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - MAR 31, 2016
Bottle, mht. 20.05.12, rated march 31, 2016: Black with brown head. Aroma of cocoa, coconut, chocolate, slight coffee, syrup and brown sugar. Flavour not as sweet as expected with loads of burnt, malty bitterness covering the tongue. Full at first, but going down it displays a lighter body keeping it both very drinkable and longlasting in flavour at the same time. Flavour would have me expecting a richer palate though. Nice beer for sure.

Nevalainen (464) - FINLAND - AUG 2, 2015
The color is black with very nice tan head. There is at first a cookie like aroma, then comes coffee, licorice and vanilla. Taste is sweet with smokey and licorice flauvour. Well balanced beer all the way. It’s an experience in World class.

KoNrRiI (1036) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2015
0.5 bottle. Opening accompanied by a new-years-champage-like burst, dark brown color and a medium, (discounting the champagne effect), cream head. Sweet aroma of caramel, dark fruits, delicate molasses, and some wood. Taste is sweet, dark fruity, malty, a tad tart, prune, very well-balanced. Full body, creamy/thick texture, and a flat carbonation. Finish brings even more prunes, more dark fruits, and more unusual sweet and sour goodness. Overall the infrequent burst did not seem to influence the beer’s enjoyability at all and the brew is splendid; the unusual prune-like flavor works well in its favor.

Flaske 0,5 liter, en super dejlig og lækker porter, smager bedst ved de 8~10 grader ikke varmere.

probstblueribbon (3628) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2015
50 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. BB 28-11-2013.

App.: Deep brown-black with a decent mocha head. Aroma: Lots of dark chocolate, a touch smoky, very deep, dark, sweet, rich and inviting, milk chocolate, molasses, that grape jelly aroma that I get a lot from big dark beers, a bit of bright berry-like fruitiness, this has held up well. Palate: Medium+ body, somewhat restrained carbonation. Flav.: Lots of slightly bright dark dried fruit (big prune/plum notes), dark chocolate, lightly tart, molasses, a bit of black licorice, so much “fresh” dark dried fruit; off-dry with moderate bitterness and a long, mouth-coating finish that has prune/plum as the main element with a bit of dark chocolate behind it.

1.5 years beyond shelf life and holding up nicely. I have a more recent bottle from LCBO...how will it fare?
