TorbenJensen (179) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2015
Nougat colored rich foam that covers its mysterious aroma and sets the expectation of a good porter up. But you have to sit and wait until the foam falls before you can sense the touch of smoked malt mixed with hard roasted malt and peat. The taste is a feast of coffee, dark chocolate, hard toasted / roasted malt, licorice, smoke and a little bit dark dried fruit. A little bit of warming alcohol character are pressing towards the end and with its soft carbonation gives good starting point for a moderate hoppy bitterness that maintains its many fine flavors long. The finish is medium dry. This is a porter brand that I like them. Robust, full-bodied and velvety in the mouth.

larsga (6676) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 30, 2015
Big brown head. Opaque black body. Roasty smoky vanilla aroma with earthy licorice notes. Sweetish earthy smoky tar taste with spicy roasty notes. Fullish body. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Sweetish earthy chocolatey smoky aftertaste with vanilla and burnt notes. Sooty wooden flavour lingers. Partly great and partly flawed. Certainly interesting. (0.33l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

Cheers to the Leightonator for this country tick and for the shower before hand - I enjoyed the squishy feeling beneath my feet (post shower!), 02/09/14. Black with a well appointed tan covering that dissipates but retains to good effect. Nose is earthy roastings, papery notes, dark malt, dark chocolate, brown bread, light spice. Taste comprises mellow dark fruits, spice, chocolate vanilla fudge, sweet licks, light roast. Medium + body, fine carbonation, smei drying close with sweet notes. Decent.

Bottle thanks to L-Dogggg. It pours cloudy dark brown with a small bubbly tan head. The nose is bitter-sweet, dark chocolate, earth, fruit and gateaux. The taste is bitter-sweet, rich dark chocolate, earth, cocoa, coffee, mild acidity and light ash with a dry finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Quite nice. Nice dark chocolate action.
