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.

500ml bottle from Kamiel (one of many special treats). Dark brown with a nice mocha head that bubbles up and then fades to a nice film across the glass. Smokey, chocolate, coffee grinds, roasted malts, hints of vanilla, bit of tannin. Moderate body and carbonation, a nicely balanced beer that hints at sweetness but has some underlying coffee bitterness and roasted malts that even things out, becomes slightly dry, easy to drink, smooth, one of the best regular porters I have had. Thanks K!

Bottle: Batch 306: BB 01/04/10: Original swing top bottle, nit sure who brought me this one... (Got 3 bottles from 3 differet people, or was it two....) Medium sized mocha coffee brown foamy head on top of black colored beer. Aromas of garbage bag, earth, walnut, plastic tint, some rotten fruit and a light chocolate tint. Flavours of chocolate, earth, hazlenuts, malts, cacoa, toast, some dried leaves, mocha, bitters, creamy coffee with coffee milk tints, some smoke and peated malts, grainy/nutty bitter and some dry tones. Aftertaste is a dry mix of bitters, chocolate, nuts, malt toast and some grains. Low carbo, creamy oily close to silky mouthfeel, full body and a light oily texture. Complex beer, just over the top? Still very good stuff!

I must have had a bad bottle because this Porter didn;t wow me like it wowed others. In fact, I thought it was average at best as far as beer goes, and below average for a porter. The pour is nice dark brown (I matched it against some coal I have and it certainly failed to be jet black) with a brown head. The aroma was weak chocolate, weak coffee, and noticeable alcohol (a no-no in a 7.5% beer). Flavour is all over the place, a little coffee, a little chocolate, a little licorice, and a little vanilla, but nothing stood out as being supreme.
