COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Thanks to fonefan for this in trade. Pours a pretty solid black with a chocolate brown head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roasted hazelnuts and Brazil nuts. Creamy mouthfeel, smooth on the palate with a nutty finish. Taste is dark chocolate, soy sauce, nuts, hint of coffee and dark fruits.

From 22oz bottle to English pint. Pour is a black with minimal head. Nose is roasted malt, raisin, other fruits, light chocolate, coffee. Taste is medium bodied, mostly sour with hints of sweetness from the sugar. Finishes very crisp with a strong finish. Awesome porter

Sweetish-Malty beginning. Intense malty with a very sticky sweetish body. Hints of sourness, intense sweetish with roasty coffee-like aroma. Sweetish-malty aftertaste, fresh but sticky, intense. Nice!

"Wish list brew from john. Loved the frosted and surprisingly choppy aroma. Licorice, chocolate, smoke...lots going on, and all very good. But not Wow good, so methinks 64th is a bit on the high side.

Black color with a tan head with short duration, medium lacing. Aroma with coffee notes, black chocolate, some ashes and roasted mals. Flavor is mild bittery with roasted and toasted malts, black coffee and chocolate, some licorice notes. LIght bitterness in the final with a slightly dry mouthfeel.

bottle to glass; from trade with a generous RB! not sure of age and/or how long I had it - a couple of tiers below my favorites in this style aroma was soft - lots of different kinds of chocolate, some roast. palate was good; Taste like aroma but did have some vinous to it that just doesn’t work for me.

Bottle. Thanks huhzubendah! Pours an oily black with wispy lacing. Aroma is a revelation: chocolate, brown sugar, and roasted malts. Flavor is massive, and everything a baltic porter should be. Dark fruits, fig, black cherry, vanilla, chocolate malt, port complexity. Finish is dark fruit sweetness. Outstanding.

Been looking for this one for years. And here we are chilling in my basement getting it on (sorta). Beer is dark brown and looks like a porter. I feel the earth move under my feet, etc. Seriously nice aroma and flavor. Stop! ...in the name of love, this shit is delicious. Danish roasted malt, light chocolates, vanilla, hints if cherry, prominent dark fruits. Silky smooth and wonderfully intriguing. Lovely.
