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.

Consumed at the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation, Opstal, May 2006

Thanks to some unknown Danish RB folks who brought it down to the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation. Subsequent bottles have proved to be equally as good. Nose is oily, smoky malt scents. Flavor is smoky, creamy but rough, with cream, amaretto and chocolate. Some creamy alcohol, cherry and bourbon scents. Sweaty scented at times, but not in a bad way. Palate is creamy up front, slick, then the more rough hops come through. Robust and creamy, that’s how I would describe this porter. Very good.

Subsequent bottles have been just as good.

Draught – Almost black body with beautiful brown edge, huuuuge brown head forever lasting, beautiful laces; Very big nose, lacks a bit depth: bitter English licorice, which almost becomes medical, but also lots of bitter chocolate, and dried fruit; Very soft creamy textured, with time in mouth some bitterness appears; Extending into nicely bitter, quite hoppy finish that lasts forever. The body has perfect balance, evolving perfectly with lots of late hop and fresh nuts. One of the best bodied beers I ever had.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2006
Draught. Deep black with a small mocha head. A whack full of bitter chocolate and coffee roastiness in the aroma...I found it to be a lot more full in the aroma than the coffee porter. Beautiful silky roastiness, toffee toast, bitter chocolate, coffee, and a hint of alcohol. Super smooth with a delicate balance and layers and waves of chocolate flavour. The bitterness also tends to stick around for a while. Sampled at the Ølfabrikken Brewday on May 19, 2006.

Thanks to 2 Danes of whom I don’t even know their names I was able to taste this terrific Porter during the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation. Very strong chocolate, coffee and hops aroma. Black color, brown head, good lace. Very sweet, lots of chocolate and coffee, almost like a coffee liquor. Intense viscous and dens.

JorisPPattyn (8198) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 27, 2006
Fully black, jet black even; small dark brown head. Coffee nose, very black coffee, but slightly sweetened, swinging to moccha. Treacle, sweet with very burnt notes without becoming bitter. Coffee flavour as main aroma. Syrupy, treacle syrup-like, fully viscous. Very thick, but all in all quite usual porter flavours.
