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.

Opaque black with deep tan head. Aroma malty and very roasty with chared notes. Flavor dominated by roasted bitterness reminescent of dark chocolate, slight sour undertone. Finishes dry with roasted flavors lingering. Somewhat one dimensional with too much emphasis on the roasted flavors.

Poured dark brown with a dark brown head to match. Aroma was largely roasted, with a hint of coffee. Reminded me more of a baltic porter, similiar to the Gonzo. Flavor was a flat roasted chocolate coffee. Oily mouthfeel with a dry bitter roasted finish. Too flat or something just wasn’t right about it.

[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.

Nose was of rubbing alcohol and so was the first note on the old tastebuds. Getting past that was diffucult, but provided a nice chocolate, malty, espresso treat. Lots of gulps actually made me think I had cracked open the rum barrel aged capn lawrence I had already consumed. It was really potent and really strong liquor dominated.

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.

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.
