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.

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.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2008 Canned version 2008- Black with a beautiful and lasting pillow of light brown head. Roast malt dominates the aroma with some chocolate and the faintest hint of metal. Tasted next to a 2007, bottled porter, the flavour lacks quite a bit of the character it used to have. Thinner, more straightforward roast flavour, dry and without the fruitiness that used to make it such a perfect beer. Original rating, way back: Rich roast malt aroma, with some chocolate and a hint of coffee. Perfectly balanced flavour, dry with some (dark, dried) fruity sweetness and lots of bitter, roast notes. Full bodied and despite the intensity, very easy to drink. 9-5-9-4-19

black, thin brown head, sweet roasted and chocolate aroma, rich chocolate flavor, long bitterness, big bitter roasted dominates the profile

chocolate coming in stronger in the aroma and flavor, but then the big bitter roasted kicks in

Score: 3.0 to 3.7
Words: Green’s

huge roasted from the beginning with the dark chocolate in the background, the chocolate grows in conjunction with the body becoming huge and a bit sludgy, plenty of hop flavor and bitterness keeps it dry, this time the roasted receeds enough to let the rich and creamy chocolate take over

Tasted both the 33cl can and the 50cl bottle version. Bottle version is superior. Great beer.

bhensonb (10748) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 18, 2007
50 cL bottle (conditioned). Deeply dark chocolate aroma. Opaque brown/black color with a decent head that is nearly brown! Full bodied. Decent carbonation, light, almost creamy. Starts with toasted malt bitter accompanied by chocolate. There is a strong burnt character that follows. The finish is quite dry, and more unsweet toasted malt than bitter, but there is a coffee bitter presence, and suggestions of smoke. Really very good.

Pinball (10723) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 23, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2010 supermarket can at $2. 33cl. Nice coffe aroma. Black, brown solid foam. Great taste, none of the disturbing nuances you usually find in a cheap port. aftertaste is dominated by roasy notes. Tastes great. Palate is nice too, full and smooth. This is real good, and outstanding for a canned beer at $2 retal. I wonder if it has been brewed by GB or ølbryggeriet. I’ll buy some more of these. (blind tasting 2010:8,4,7,3,15)

A: The pour is nearly black with an initially fluffy tan head which dies down to a nice layer on top of the beer. S: The nose has some excellent roasted malt and coffee aromas which go along nicely with some molasses, dark chocolate, and perhaps even a touch of dark fruit. T: The flavor offers up a nice contrast of mildly sweet and bitter chocolate along with coffee, roasted malt, and then some more roast for good measure. M: The body is medium to full with a fairly low level of carbonation and a bitterness on the finish. D: An excellent porter and very representative of its style. I’m glad to have tried this one and would definitely do so again.
