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.

faroeviking (10291) - FAROE ISLANDS - SEP 3, 2007
Draught.Pours a big creamy long lasting light brown head. Aroma of dried fruits, bitter dark chocolate, coffee, well roasted malt, and sweet caramel. The flavour is dominated by the chocolate, roasty malt and coffee, lovely touch of the sweet caramel from brown sugar and some alcohol. Nice bitter aftertaste. One of the very best porters available in Denmark! Christian knows how to brew a reall mother of a porter.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2007 Pitch black with a beautiful, creamy, lasting, dark nougat head. The aroma has lots of roasted malts and the mouthfeel is oily. The flavour has nice notes of malt and bitter chocolate, dark fruit, licorice, brown sugar and a nice, long and bitter finish. It’s a really nice porter!

bierkoning (10007) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2009 Swing top bottle. Opague, dark brown creamy head. Roasted malt and a hint of smoke and dark chocolate in the aroma. Malty, medium to full bodied, very powerful porter. Loads of roast, hints of beechwood and cacao. Dark roasted espresso. Heavy stuff, although you really can’t taste much alcohol. 8 4 7 4 16 = 3.9 Can @ RBESG Grand Tasting 2009. The Old Swing top bottle version is history, so this one will count for the rating. Almost black and opague. Roast and apple syrup in the aroma and flavor. Roastbitter finish with some aluminium. Still quite OK, but in no way comparable to the ’old’ Olfabrikken.
