Brewed on Maris Otter ale malt, British Brown Malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, two types of caramel malt and brown sugar.

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.

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.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2008 On tap. Pours dark brown with a brown head (the darkest I´ve seen) Medium sweetness and high bitterness. Aromas of rich dark chocolate some coffee and a hint of vanilla. Never had a beer with such richness and fullness. Full bodied. Low CO2. Bitter chocolately finish with a hint of cigar smoke. Very nice.
Added after ølfestival 2007: Bit more smoke than the normal version. 9-4-8-4-17
-Slightly aged (2 months "too old")
Wauw, slightly more fruity and less dry than a fresh version. Made me tweek the numbers.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Draft @ Ølbaren, Cph. Very roasty aroma, as it opens the aroma reveals a very nice fruityness with some underlying yeast, notes of espresso and bitter chocolate. Jet black body with huge and rocky dark tan head. Lots of sweetness in the flavor, yet very roasty, very fruity for a porter, notes of coffee, ends in a lingering and pleasant bitterness. Leaves the palate quite dry. Excellent beer!
