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.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2011 (50 cl bottle from Kvickly) In celebration of my rating #100 on Ratebeer I decided to try the best Doppelbock and the best Baltic Porter in the world (both with percentiles of 100 within and outside the style). Pours black with a rich, toffee head that laces the glass heavily. The aroma is coffee, chocolate, toasted malts and smooth, herbal hoppiness (BB: April 25th 2013). The brew is creamy on the palate, full-bodied, softly carbonated and full bodied with a long, dry finish. The taste is medium bitterness offset by a light sweetness and full of pleasant, aromatic notes of caramel, chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Very smooth and drinkable. Girlfriend says: "It’s really oily."

JanLaursen (3063) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2011
Can (bought 2009): Pitch black beer with a nice delicious nougat-colored head and a roasted and smoky aroma of bacon, coffee and campfire. These nuances are reflected in the taste, which is bold and smooth and also contains notes of figs, dried fruit, dark bitter chocolate and English liquorice. The finish is long, dry, medium bitter, voluminous and overwhelming. Excellent beer.

33 cl can. Vintage 2009 drank in 2011. Dark brown/black liquid with small brown head. Malty smell with notes of dark chocolate, licorice, rye bread, pumpernickel and maybe some cherry. Taste is also quite malty with lots of licorice, light to medium bitterness and sweetness. Medium to full bodied with ok carbonation. Nice!

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Bottle from 07, shared by Derek. Pours a deep dark black, thin dark tan head. Coffee, slight oxidization, char and roast. Oxidized, sweet plum and prune, malty and lots of char though. But the plum and prune notes are tough to get by. Chocolate and char, more coffee. Long roast bitterness and more oxidization. Lingering roast and char.

Koelschtrinker (10480) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 10, 2011
Sehr schokoladig malziger Antrunk, ausbalanciert, kräftig, aber angenehm. Das Bier wird weiter würziger und röstmalzig, dieses Aroma hält sehr lange. Zuletzt kommt eine holzig-herbe Note auf. Vielleicht das beste Bier des LCRBM, und da waren einige Knaller! Test vom 11.9.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 13,13,13,12,11,13 - 12,75

Pours black with a tiny brown head. Aroma is coffee, dark fruits, light alcohol, dark chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is chocolate, liquorice, espresso, roasted malts, coffee beans, wood leading to a dry end.

Nickls (1829) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - JUN 1, 2011
Bottle. Very dark opaque brown with a darker tan head. Bitter roasted malt, chocolate, and dark fruits in the aroma. Nice dark fruitiness in the flavor, but that gives way to a must toastier and chocolate driven finish. Medium body with bubbly carbonation.

brnandersen (1866) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2011
Sample from bottle at CBF 2011. Black colour with a creamy tan head. . Aromas of chocolate, coffee, and notes of alcohol. Moderately sweet with roasted malt flavors, coffee, and milk chocolate. the alcohol is pleasant and warming. Only mild bitterness, moderate carbonation. Consistent and perfectly balanced beer. Silky, full mouthfeel, WOW - the best porter I ever had, and the best beer sampled at CBF 2011. Hope that the shitty Harboe Brewery don´t mess this one up.

Bottle at Ølfestivallen 2011: Light brown head, black. Nose with dark chocolate, seet filtercofee and a light fruit. Fat, medium body and a bit short. Taste is bitter chocko and bitter coffee, a bit one dimensional but surprisingly fat
