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.

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.

[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.

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!

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.

Bottle provided to me by Mads Berg and shared at the Hampton Inn Friday Night Party, hope TAR finds his rating: Extreme oily black color with a long lasting tan head. The aroma has notes of coffee, chocolate, toffee, brown sugar, walnut, prune, and hint of grassy and piney hop, and some chalky yeast ester.

WOW, a heavy bittersweet flavor of espresso, mocha powder, dark fruit, and hops done right. Wonderful balance supported by an excellent oily and lightly chewy mouth feel. There is an interesting sharpness on the aftertaste, vinous and even a little salty.

Outstanding "porter" than could easily be called a stout. Lived up to expectations, heck it honestly surpassed them.

Great aroma of lots of chocolate, strong plum, light black licorice, and faint roasted coffee. Pours an inky black with a moderate brown head that lasts a minute or so. The flavor starts with light chocolate with some faint black licorice. The chocolate really builds in the finish and combines with a moderate-strong roasted coffee bitterness giving it a nice cafe mocha flavor mixed with plums, charred wood bitterness, and a hint of vanilla and caramel. Full bodied with a slick creamy mouthfeel.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 19, 2006
Bottle shared by ClarkVV. Pours a deep dark black color with a thick, sticky dark brown head. Nose is dark chocolate, lots of roast malt, a slight salty meat note (that noone else noticed or I imagined) a nice hop scent as well is present. Flavor is more of the thick chocolate and roast. Very oily and sticky on the palate.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2006
Deep, opaque black with dark brown hues at the edges. The brown head is initially large, but it settles done to a thin, persistent layer of foam. A cool aroma of heavy roasted malt, espresso, dark chocolate, dark fruits, molasses, light hoppy pine and perhaps even a hint of cinnamon. The body is thick and robust with a soft, velvety carbonation on the tongue. The flavor is outstanding: tons of roasted character, some caramel and cocoa for sweetness, rich coffee and that brown sugar/molasses element. What a tasty beer: creamy, sweet, smooth, bitter and just down right enjoyable.
