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.

Pours a dark brown opaque body with medium tan head that sticks around like the creme from an espresso. Aroma is crazy sweet with chocolate malt and nuttiness--a touch of wood. Tastes insanely smooth and creamy; a ton of chocolate malt, complex sugars, and some coffee notes to round it out. Low carbonation allows for the complexities to come through unscathed. Minimal hop; and alcohol presence almost non-existent. A lasting bitterness that comes in late and stays for a while. One of the best beers I have had to date.

MuertosPorter (24) - California, USA - MAR 7, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2009 Bottle. Pours a rich oily black with a velvety brown soft fluffy head. Permeating aromas of V.S.O.P. brandy, baking chocolate, and Guatemalan coffee. Creamy smoothness. Perfect amount of carbonation on the palate. Very rich pronounced flavors. Dark chocolate, fine muscat wine, black walnuts, small touch of ginger, black treacle, dried mission figs. Ultra rich, luxurious and thoroughly satisfying. Outstanding! Heartbreaking news of the new brewery ownership.

Enmandslauget (19) - Fredericia, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2008
Flaske 2006+2007: Kaffe, Ristet malt, mørk chokolade, let røg. Fyldig, sød og meget cremet. Bitterheden fra den ristede malt samt noget frisk fra humlen passer godt til det cremede. Masser af smag.

blaheath (16) - Missouri, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Pitch black in color with a two finger head. Aromas of heavy roast, burnt sugar, chocolate, and slight smoke. Taste is full bodied, dark chocolate, roasted malts, slightly bitter, with a slightly less than long finish. A fantastic porter.

Bottle from GBBF07. Dark brown/black colour with a decent head. Aroma has coffee & dark chocolate. Tastes as it smells with some liquorice notes in there as well. A very good Porter indeed.
