Draught@EBF2008. Black colour, not much head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, strong roasted malts and also some slight stinging alcohol. Flavour is alcohol, sweet malts, coffee and mild roasted notes. Aftertaste gets bigtime roasted malts meeting alcohol. Even though the alcohol hints it’s a quite nice and wellbalanced beer.

++Draught at European Beer Festival, Copenhagen.++ Black, small beige head. Roasty coffee aroma. Dryish and heavily roasty. Medium bodied with some dark chocolate. The mouthfeel seem to consist of a solid core with mushy edges. Some asphalt lingers in the finish. A solid porter with lots of things going for it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at John Bull, Aalborg. (as Old Anchor Porter) A next to black beer with a diminishing, dense tan to beige head. Nice lacings too. A bit weak on the nose, with roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, nougat and a tiny little sourness nicely blended. Some sweetness in the mouth, smooth, quite dry and well-carbonated, with chocolate and coffee. Some bitterness towards the finish, mostly coffee-like. Medium duration. An elegant, unchallenging porter with good drinkability. (080914)
