From cask at Bishops Arms, Malmö. Pours dark brown with a small golden glare and with a small tan head. Dark roasted malt aroma. Mild fruity accent beneath a deep dark and hardroasted malt base with a distinct liqourice note. Medium tolight body. Lasting roasted acidic flavour into a solid dark malty finish.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2005 [Cask at the Danish beer festival] A black beer with a light brown head. The aroma is slightly smoked, slightly metalic and a little flat. The flavor is very soft, somewhat smoked with notes of licorice and somewhat flat. The sweetness lingers on your lips. On my tastebuds this one doesn’t have enough power for a porter.

Sampled cask conditioned at the Danish Beer Festival.
Dark brown. Perfumy and roasty. Light bodied, soapy and mild with medium bodied. And I used to like this porter so much some years ago...

Dark brown. Too poor aroma and taste with some caramel and absolutely not interesting.

Cask. Very dark brown colour. No head. Thin fruity flavour. Not my idea of a porter, but it is not bad.
