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.

!muchas gracias! if you’ve sent me one of these!!!! viscous pour is nearly black and topped by a fluffy purple cappuccino colored head. aroma is very baltic like...brown sugar/molasses, cocoa, wood, charcoal, dried fruit (cherries,blueberries and raisins) and a bit of alcohol sting. flavor is packed with everything you’d want in a baltic as well... super roasted almost ashy malt, dark dried fruits, chocolate, licorice, light molasses sweetness and soy. coffee even pokes it’s head in the aftertaste. the finish is lightly acidic. full bodied. the mouth feel is past creamy (if that’s possible)... very ’tight’ carbonation when its sloshed makes it seem if it is non existent. ya’ll can keep sending me these ;-)...

Bottle, pours an opaque, black body with dark brown head. Delicious, rich chocolate aroma with some coffee. Complex flavor profile that starts with sweet chocolate, then roasted malts, then smoke, and finishing with coffee. Earthy, dark roasted coffee finish/aftertaste. Solid, smooth, medium to heavy mouthfeel.

2005 22oz bottle courtesy of Mcbackus. Pours a jet black with ruby edges with a brown 1/2" head and a small amount of lace. Nose is chocolate & malt. Mouthfeel is smooth, dry and wonderfully creamy. Goes down like silk. Flavor is an almost perfect combination of semi sweet chocolate, a massive amount of malt & a hint of coffee. Taste was well balanced without any one flavor overwhelming anoher. This was delicious and I’m glad I have two.

pours muddy black with a large rocky light brown head. Aroma is heavily malty of roasted malts, carmel, and cookies lightly hoppy and yeasty of dark fruits and a bit of bannanna and alcohol. Flavor is balanced twords sweet a bit, roasty malts, carmel almost toffee flavors, and dark fruit like figs. Finishes a little more bitter tha it started but roasty flavor finish it off. Fluu bodied, creamy and softly carbonated. Great!

Heathen (1470) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 6, 2010
THOUGHTS: Good God, this was heavenly. It was like alcoholic, chilled, mocha coffee. This could almost be considered a Baltic Porter. It became more and more fruity as it warmed. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark brown that look opaque, black in the glass with reddish, amber at the very edges. It had an average, light brown head that mostly diminished, but left good lacing. The aroma was heavy roasted malt, chocolate, strong coffee and chocolate syrup; soy sauce, plum, black cherry, fig, dark and sour fruit, and slight alcohol. The initial flavor was light to moderately sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was very sweet, slightly sour and lightly bitter with a fairly long duration. There was chocolate, coffee, dar and sour fruit, caramel, molasses, roasted malt, brown sugar, burnt malt, maple syrup, slight soy sauce and tobacco. The medium to full body was silky and then dry with slightly fizzy carbonation and a dry and slightly alcoholic finish.

Incredibly dark brown head settles to a thick, creamy film over an equally impressively dark and dense inky black/brown body. Looks and smells luscious. Aroma is powerful in sweetness and alcohol. Rich chocolate syrup, thick cookie-like malt, green-wood smokiness and hints of dark fruit drowned in a potent punch of Malibu rum. Thick on the palate, soothing on the throat, ending with a slight chalkiness. Wonderful full flavor, intensely chocolatey but not overly sweet... and the alcohol is not as overbearing as I’d expected by the nose. A pleasant burnt bitterness of well-roasted malt reveals in the finish, and the finish lasts a long time. As my glass slowly empties, I detect a slight taste of pencil shavings but that’s really the only thing that detracts from a simply incredible beer. ~~~~~~~~~~~ Cellared for about 2 years, purchased at West Lakeview Liquors, Chicago, IL.
