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 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.

Looks great. Taste is one dimentional chocolate, roastedness. Taste is similar and a bit boring in every aspect.

Bottle. – 7/4/6/4/12. Pours pitch black with a big, but diminishing, brown head. Some lacing. Roasted aroma. Remote notes of vanilla and chocolate. Flavour is sweet and roasted. A bit cloying. Finish is bitter with roasted notes. Slightly oily palate. A well made porter, but not too exciting. 01-05-08.

Can. – 6/4/5/4/10. Pours pitch black with a big, creamy brown head. Nice lacing. Roasted aroma with smoked and slight notes of coffee at first. As it warms it develops a sour touch; a bit like a urinal, but not in an all together bad way. Flavour is roasted and sour. Cloying. Finish is slightly bitter and sour with roasted notes in the background. The bitterness lingers. Not that great – only individual aspects make up for an otherwise mediocre beer. 01-05-08.

Rated the bottle and can versions against each other. They were quite different; can had better head/lasted longer. Very different aromas, flavours and mouth feel as well. But neither are worth the hype imo.

Plimmer (252) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2008
Can 33cl. Pitch black body with a nice large brown head. Lots of roasted malt in the nose. Roasted malt, cofee, chocolate and licorice dominates flavour. Very bitter finish.

piscator34 (1974) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 14, 2008
Bottled sample via boutip (I think),and shared with oakbluff. Black in colour with low to moderate carbonation. Very vineous aroma, with lots of oak char, chocolate, syrah grapes, and some tar. I think we must have had an off bottle, as this one was quite sour in the mouth. Some chocolate and roasted malts were evident, but any residual caramel sweetness that might have been there was totally gone. Some grape and stewed fruit notes were present. Still quite drinkable, even though it was infected/soured.

INteresting, thought it was going to be a fake success but it was real good even though it was over reccomended temperature.

Bottle. Brown pour with tan head. Roasted malt aromas. Dark bitter roasted malts, brewer’s liqourice, better coffee. A little disappointing after all the hype..
