4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Courtesy of Masberg. The body of this beer is a lightly glossy black and it holds a frothy, thumb thick, tan head that is mostly lasting.
The aroma holds molasses, stewed raisins, hearty bread grains and mild licorice and caramel.
Very light malty, molasses influenced first sip. The mouthfeel thickens toward the finish becoming creamy about the same time prune and raisin flavors develop. There is also more of that hearty grain flavor that suggests a filling sweet bread spiked with molasses and raisins for sweetness. There is a silky roundness to what is essentially not a very thick beer that makes it feel fuller than it is. As it warms the finish takes on cooked sweet cherry/marzipan notes that add the suggestion of candy hardness to the finish. A very subtle beer this that keeps challenging you as you sio at it. Very nice.

Wow. Bottled 330ml, bought at Beer Paradise, Holstebro. A glorious porter. Aroma molasses, caramel, maybe smoky. Good lacing, frothy tan head, glorious flavour, liquorice, fruity and caramel. Beautiful stuff. The bottle I got looks different to the one shown here.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, 300ml, Pasteurised. Deep chestnut with white head. An impressive choice of bottled beers are available in this pub and it would be rude not to try one or two. This has a strong dark licorice flavour, burnt and woody with a strange effect of foaming on the tongue. Fruity strawberry and a burn of alcohol. Not bad at all.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 8%. Dark brown colour, small light brown head. Smoky flavour, a little bacon. Too sweet and too smoky for me.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2006 Almost black, has an amazing very clear dark copper colour, and a medium off-white head. Aroma is very faint, chocolate, some earthy hops and some light caramel and alcohol. The body is magnificently full, I have to idea where the aroma went, as the palate is beautifully balanced with only a small amount of roast malt coming though. There is a slightly buttery feel in the mouth, as well as some molasses. A toffee like sweetness comes out in the finish, the alcohol is non-existent. A great beer, not sure if I’d call it a standard porter though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2006 Really interesting "porter"...strong roasted flavors of caramel, brown sugar, molasses, with definite smoky notes. Alcohol is very prominent, enjoyably so, though. I’m not particulary bothered by the incongruities to style that seem to trouble the other raters. This is a fine, drinkable porter/doppelbock, and I would seek these out again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a clear, reddish mahogany with a small, off-white head. Sweetish, roasted malt aroma. A very solid body with roasted accents of malt. Sweetish with a bitter malt finish. Decent all right, but there isn’t much Porter about this. 130806
