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.

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 (9998) - 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

Nickls (1765) - 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 (1672) - 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

22oz bottle, very sweet aroma, rich chocolate. Very full bodied, chocolate with a back end of nice roastiness. Times alcohol very well, a bit caramel. Delicious.

rmussman (1688) - California, USA - APR 18, 2011
Awesome brew. This brew packed the punch of a greatly crafted 11 percent brew. The malts on this one is so well made that it is certainly worth the $10 a bottle you will probably pay.

2007 bottle poured into a goblet. The bottle says its 8.0% ABV, the site says 7.5%, close enough. Beer is black and forms a thin broken brown head. Carbonation is a mystery. Some lacing is left on the glass. A slight alcohol in the nose, mostly roast, like strong coffee without the steam. Beer is medium to low in body. A nice sweetness up front followed by a lot of bitterness and roast at the back end that lingers for a long time. No aftertaste but all in all, a clean beer. The roast stays with you but its an extension of the original flavors not something new, something old. Second taste, more midpalate flavors this time, a slight sourness that fades quickly. This beer has been ages for years on the yeast in the bottle a few off flavors could be coming up. Overall the beer is well balanced and really good. Way better than I expected. Drinkability is high. I’d get it again. Serving type: bottle

The beer pours black with a nice tan head, good retention and lacing. The aroma is nice chocolate, coffee, smoke and vanilla. The taste is the same and nothing short of phenominal. It starts off with sweet chocolate, adds some awesome smokiness and finishes with a light taste of vanilla. The feel is super smooth and there is outstanding drinkability. The beer is great, one of my favorites.
