From tab, Gustav Wieds, Roskilde. Black beer not alot of head, aroma with ploums and roasted malt. Taste amazing, roasted malts, coffee and liquorice, aftertaste from lagering on oak barrels, whiskey/bourbon, sweet from prunes. Amazing beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gluepot (200) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2015
A Mikkeller Christmas present. The nose is quite unique, featuring a damp woodiness, roasted coffee and a touch of chocolate. The woodiness continues through into a complex taste profile. Other elements include roasted coffee, a touch sourness and bitterness, some nutmeg, alcohol, and finishing with a touch of cherries and dark berries. Really well blended and feels bigger than its 8% abv. A real treat.

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Nice brew with a lot of dark chocolate and some spices.

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Pours an opaque black with a massive light brown head and tons of lace. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, light dark fruits, and cocoa. Flavour is lots of roasted malts, cocoa, coffee, medium dark malt bitterness, just shy of tasting burnt and a mild-medium dry finish.

Svesse (7052) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2014
(Bottle) Brownish black colour with lasting brown head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty, roasted nose with notes of black coffee, dark chocolate, pine needles, orange peel, black rye bread, liquorice and hints of roasted almonds. Malty, roasted taste with dark chocolate, cocoa, black coffee, pine needles, citrus peel, liquorice, hints of spices (cinnamon, anise, nutmeg) and a generous cocoa bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with just a touch of sweetness. Tasty and warming winter porter. Very nice.

Dry bittersweet notes of coffee. spice and an overabundance of malt. I always like this beer and the 2012 is no exception.

Thanks to koelschtrinker... Pours very dark black/brown with a light brown head. The smell is molasses, slight sourness, leather. The taste is slight sour, dry bitter roast, dirty underwear. The body is medium with average carbonation.

Rund malziger Beginn, in dem die Gewürze nicht so störend sind wie sie im Geruch wirken. Rund, etwas Espresso, trocken röstig, leicht herb. Harmonisch, gut. 12/12/12/11/8/12
