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.

Black with a creamy tan head. Wonderful roasted aroma with hints of chocolate and coffee. Flavour is dry and raosted with a fantastic lingering bitterness. Somewhat sweet in finish.

JorisPPattyn (9469) - 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.

Gusgus (235) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2008 Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2006. Very nice rounded caramelly roasted porter with some licorice and chocolate. Soft round and medium sweet taste, which I like. One of the better porters out there, but lacking some complexity and character.

thewolf (12078) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2006
Draught. Very dark brown colour with good head. Aroma is mostly burnt with coffee and fruity tones. The taste starts quite vinious then sweet and gets bitter-burnt at the end.

omhper (23428) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2006
[Draught at Købehavnske Øldage] Dark black, creamy head. Rich coffee aroma. Dryish and smooth. Tar competes with coffee for domination. Solidly malty, but towards the finish it turnsh somewhat harsh and inky. In my opinion Ølfabrikken makes other beers that are far better.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Bottle via trade with BierKönig - Thanks Jeppe! Pours almost black with a large pillowy tan head that stays very well and laces thickly on the sides of the glass. Bold robust aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and sweet chocolate. Flavor is coffee, chocolate and bold roasted malts, a little toffee, and mild hops on the finish. Quite creamy and robust on the palate. Oily but chewy in the mouth. Reminds me alot of Founders Breakfast Stout actually. Very nice brew and very worthy of it’s top 50 spot!

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Poured black with a nice brown head. The thick aroma started with coffee and very roasted malt. Nice amount of chocolate followed it up. The aroma was mostly sweet but a light tartness was also present. Huge roasted malt flavor. Chocolate and coffee abound with light notes of fruit. Hops held balance it out and finish with a big bitterness. The beer started sweet and finished dry.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2007 bottle at the Hampton tasting, thanks BBB63 - Exceptional. Pours thick and black with a moderate, enduring brown head. The aroma is heavy on the roast malt and chocolate. The flavor includes the same plus strong espresso notes and a pleasing hops balance. It’s full bodied, softly carbonated, and has a somewhat hoppy finish. edit: recently had a big bottle of this one all to myself at J.K. O’Donnell’s in Fort Wayne. It’s superb and I’ll stick with my original rating. Actually I’ll bump it up just a bit. Great beer.
