This beer is awesome, it looks awesome, dark brown foam, black beer! Even when pouring I smelled chocolate. The taste is spicy, burned, beautiful. Coffee and cocoa, it’s awesome, one of my favorite seasonal beers...

Smells very nice of liqourice, caramel and chocolate.
Pours black with a brown frothy, head.
Medium bitterness, light sweetness.
Medium body, creamy, soft carbonation, bitter, long finish.
In the beginning, I found it had too much smoke to it but it only gets better and better. A decent porter.

This is a very complex beer. It has a long lasting aftertaste with changing flavours.

A porter as it should be. Creamy, velvety, yet sparkling. Initially you get the vanilla and complex roasted notes, then smoke and bitterness. More, more!

Good porter, with vanilla, chocolate, rope and very Smokey aftertaste. A bit to much smoke in my opinion.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Mikkeller and Friends, Copenhagen
Pitch black color with generous brown head (larger than the head of younger vintages). The aroma is essentially roasted malt, impression of wet cardboard. Smooth mouthfeel; roasted malt flavor, ashy, with a saccharine feeling; then traces of dark chocolate; ordinary bitterness, cardboard, liquorice, light spices; some final astringency.
Not super-nice, there is some mess; probably doesn’t age well.

In short: A spicy fruity porter with candy-like sweetness. Unfocused and low drinkability.
How: Bottle 750ml, consumed when over one year of age.
The look: Very dark mahogany body topped by a persistent large tan head.
In long: Nose is moderately spicy (cloves and others) along with black liquorice and fresh prunes. In mouth the beer feels heavy despite the generous carbonation. Taste is quite spicy (cloves, cinnamon and more), christmas candy cane, strange sensation of burnt flower petals, juicy prunes, soft black liquorice candy, roasted wood, some coffee, lilacs (!!!), purple jelly beans, more... All these flavors (and there are many) just do not mesh together very well. This is a tasty beer but it is also a beer that feels a bit messy. It is also too sweet and too spicy for my taste. The type of beer that is ok at first because it is very tasty, but it is the type of taste I quickly grew tired of. Judging by the ratings it appears lots of people love this beer, I am not a huge fan of people who are huge fans of things I am not a huge fan of, like huge fans of huge fans for instance, I hate interior wind.
