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.

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.

From a can - but nice to buy canned beer of such quality! Poured into a pint glass it looks amazing - like the "ur"-porter, if there ever was one. So balanced that it’s almost too much. Everything is in its rigth place. Taste is not too sweet, but hold together by a vaguely hoppy dryness. Rough, but still drinkable, Perfect!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep black. Incredibly dark head, which looks great. Extreme hoppy aroma, but it’s balanced by very caramellike rich malt characteristics.Aromas of chocolate, roast and burnt fruits. Flavor is complex and with nice roasted malts.

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.

Ølfabrikken Porter pours up with a modest carbonation that creates a small tawnish-brown colored head that sits briefly atop the opaque deep dark brown-black body. The heavily roasted aroma is dominated by a big chocolate malt presence and some mild fruitiness (black cherry, mulberry, plum). Background notes of black malt, arabica beans, earthy hops, and woodsy licorice root aid the overall complexity. These interplay nicely as the beer warms in hand and allows for some intoxicating alcohol vapors to dance at the rim. Nice! All that roastiness is definitely carried over to the flavor that starts off rather bold, but eventually mellows to show espresso coffee overtones, toasted caramel, and smooth bitter chocolate undertones. The acidic, bittersweet finish is slightly smoky with a subtle warmth. This medium-full bodied Baltic Porter is a touch oily and finishes heavy. Enjoy with some traditional smoked mackeral, creamy chive havarti, and slices of buttered rye bread. Here’s to Christian Anderson and his pioneering Ølfabrikken brewery.

This porter poured black with light brown head. The aroma was of chocolate and coffee. It had a nice smooth malt flavor. There was a hint of smokiness in the finish.
This was one of the best porters I have ever drank. Highly recommend.
