UPDATED: NOV 3, 2012 03-NOV-2012, bottle @home, norsk butik close to Mikkeller. Much more and lasting head this time from bottle. Sweet roast and loads of hops. Some alcohol. Just a fine porter. Raised the rating. Nor very often I prefer the bottle over draught version. ########## 10-MAY-2012, draft @DØE Ølfestival 2012. Almost black and almost ni head. Bready - rugbrød. Very malty. Rye is evident in taste but alsto in texture, Sweet. Fine brew.

Sampled at DØE Beerfestival 2012, TAP1. Pours a pitch black beer with a beige head. The aroma is malt, roasted, chocolate, coffee, notes of licorice and hops. The flavor follows the nose with additional alcohol and malt acidity. The palate is sweetness. Overall a good, rounded and complex beer.

MrHangover (3755) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle @ Nieuwjaarsborrel 2014, courtesy of jmgreenuk. Pours a very dark brown beer with a small brown head on top. Aroma is grainy, rye and has some licorice. Flavor is very sweet with a big grainy base in it. The sweetness is backed up by a big bitter flavor in the back. Balance is very good in this beer, yet it’s missing a few components to be a great beer. Still quite good.

mile (3725) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 11, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and roasted malt, light licorice and coffee. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light roasted malt, light licorice and coffee. Finish is average to long, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, light caramel and some roasted malt with light coffee, faint licorice and light hoppyness. Caramel sweetish IP with roastiness makes the finish bit drier. Way too sweet for me.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2013
16.9 oz bottle. Dark brown with a big bubbled tan head; sheets of lace. Nose is chocolate, rye, dates and molasses. Medium to full body with a tang. Taste is coffee and milk chocolate, getting bitter with licorice, fading into a dry rye finish. Simple but well conceived and executed.
