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.

Bottle. Brown pour with tan head. Roasted malt aromas. Dark bitter roasted malts, brewer’s liqourice, better coffee. A little disappointing after all the hype..

Bottle, best before 08. Pours a pitch black color with a frothy tan head. Aroma is of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, alot of portwine vinous notes, dark fruits, liqourice and a touch of alcohol and smoked notes. The flavor is also very vinous with loads of portwine notes, along with coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, liqourice, light smoke and dried dark fruits. The body is medium with a dry mouthfeel. Overall a pretty solid beer, but the flavors are much more toned down in this older bottle. Fresher bottles/cans are much better, unfortunately its been a while since this beer has been brewed... Back in the day this was my favorite Baltic Porter.

Bottle thanks to Papsoe. Best before 2008. Pours jet black with small tan coloured head. Amazing aroma of milk chocolate licorice bullets. A little roasted grain and a hint of smoke in the back ground. Flavours are sweet but not overly so. Subtly bitterness comes through. Creamy mouth feel. Very nice beer.

Bottle 50cl from Papsoe thanks a lot, bottle to be finished in 2007 !. A dark beer with medium brownish head. Nose is on dark malt and smoked notes. Aroma is very malty, caramel malt, toasted malt, roasted malt and smoked malt, very creamy, dark chocolate notes, coffee / expresso notes, fresh brown bread notes too, fruit part is on licorice. Texture is amazing, so creamy, near to Nogne ones, so sweet, no acidity, not much astringence, smoked notes are nice, a very pleasant and easy drinkable beer, alcohol is well hidden. A very good one, thanks so much Papsoe.

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 (3227) - 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!

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.
