COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: Has also been brewed at Bryggeriet S.C. Fuglsang and Nøgne Ø in Grimstad, Norway
Introduced at ’Fynske Øldage’ 2005.

English: A dark and rich porter inspired by the Baltic porters traditionally made in Scandinavia. Roasted without being burned or bitter, with the flavor dominated by dried fruits and vinous notes. High amounts of residual sugars and a fruity aroma makes this beer the perfect companion for chocolate desserts, if served lightly chilled. Brewed on Maris Otter ale malt, British Brown Malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, two types of caramel malt and brown sugar.

Thanks to JCapriotti for sharing this! Thanks to his Secret Santa for ths hand bottled cask sample. The beer is a really coating beer. Has lots of legs. Thin head. Deep brown/black body. The aroma is largely espresso and desert with brown sugar. Has a light earthyness to it. The flavor is really good. This is what a porter should be. Robust malts that don’t remind me of stouts. It’s got that coffee and dry roasty espresso flavor. Sorta has a light raspberry and definitely has a graham cracker flavor. Mmmm... The palate is dry and creamy. A touch tart, but that is likely intentional. World class for porters.

Hand-bottled sample kindly shared by Jason and sent from a mystery Danish Secret Santa. Cloudy black body and no head, but I’m not going to knock it on that. Big aroma nonetheless - epsresso, alcohol, coffee cake. Big ass-kicking flavor! Tart, oily black malt throughout with sweet chocolate cake underneath. The finish exhibits some raspberry-tart hops, grahm craaker/chocolate cake sweetness and coffee beans. Not-thin mouthfeel that would have been helped by a bit of carbonation. This is the tartest porter I’ve ever tasted - very unique!

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2005
On tap at "Plan B", Copenhagen. Wow, this is a very impressive porter with loads of heavy flavours. Pitch, pitch black. Sweet roasted aroma with chocolate and coffee. Flavour is very rich too with hints of dark fruits and smoke. Balanced and dry bitter finish. Basically, this is an improved and fruitier version of the wonderful "Limfjordsporter" from Thisted.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 (On tap) Pitch black with a small, creamy, light brown head. Very roasted/burned aroma. Quite full-bodied, with notes of burned malt leaving a dry bitterness. Underlying sweetness, but rounded and very smooth. Very classical Porter of superior quality. 281005

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2006 Draught. Black with a baige head. Roasted light smoked malty, coffee, chocolat aroma and a full creamy roasted, light smoked malty, coffee, chocolat taste. Full body and a bitter dry light smoked finish. Just Great !!! 8-5-9-5-19 Bottle. Pretty much the same, just not as full and a bit thiner at all. 8-5-8-4-17

MiP (13535) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2012 Draught. Very malty aroma, a little sweet. Some chocolate. Black colour, very small head. Smokey, malty flavour. Roasted aftertaste. Mouthfeel is great, nice and creamy. 7 3 7 4 18

Bottle at KØ07 as Eksportporter. Good roasted aroma and flavour. Very black colour, small brown head. Nice roasted coffee flavour. Some hoppiness, getting sour, but nice. Overall quite roasted, but semi-balanced. 6 3 7 3 15

Can, 7.5%. Roasted aroma with some grassy hoppiness. Quite black colour, small brown head. Nice flavour, roasted with some chocolate. Some barley bitterness in the aftertaste. The carbonation is quite rough. 7 3 8 3 18

Can, 2 years past BB date. The aroma is slightly oxidised, but the beer seems quite fresh. Also quite flavourful still, but the hoppiness is gone, leaving only a bit of jam. A lot better fresh, IMO.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2005
Draught at Ølbaren. Served in Ølfabrikken glass. Black w/ nice, creamy tan head. The aroma is roasted and coffeeish, slightly sweet, and pleasantly citrusy. The flavor is perfectly balanced: lots and lots of chocolate, coffee, solid malt backbone and gorgeous citrus hop presence. Delicious, bitter and smooth finish. Full, pleasant mouthfeel. Highly quaffable. A superb beer.
