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.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2008 50 cL botte (batch 191). Pours black/deep brown with a thick chocolate head. Nice liqourice chocolate roasted malt and slight smoked aroma, classic with a slight orange feel. Flavour is heavy on all notes, classic Ølfabrikken to have a heavy bitterness into the finish. Before that chocolate, slight liqourice and roasted malt notes with a whiff of wineous dried fruits make out a great porter brew, very classic but just much more powerfull than other baltic porters around. Great brew that keeps lingering long after the last sip.

From 50 cl bottle brewed at Nøgne Ø for dist. with the Shelton Brothers. Distinct dark horizon aroma initially. Aroma is chalky, light smoked. Light fruity flavour. Domininantly smoked flavour. Ends lingering dry malty and smoked finish.8-4-8-4-17=4.1

A black beer with a nice brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted combined with notes of caramel and hints of alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of chocolate, coffee, wood, and nuts, as well as hints of tar. The mouthfeel is very creamy and slightly sticky.

Bottled. Pitch black colour, brown foamy head. Aroma roasted coffee beans with smoked malts along with plum, raisins and sugar. Flavour is smoke and roasted coffee. Strong roast and some bitterish hoppyness in aftertaste. A bit alcohol in finish. Awesome!

[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.

Opaque black porter, very thin tan head. Smooth and almost creamy. Mild roastiness but this is a very very smooth porter. Not bitter or too dry. Just a hint of fruit and hops. Very drinkable.3.4

Thanks to Scopey for another bite of this apple! 2005 bottle. Mild minerals. Unsweet dark chocolate and a touch of coffee, Little malt cream and a mild tang. Smooth finish with a forensic trace of something that may have been hops once!
