COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This lip-smacking dark ale is mellow and malty. The aroma is reminiscent of bittersweet dark chocolate and the caramel and roast malt flavors are exceptionally smooth. Medium bodied, with a slightly sweet edge but a dry finish.

hayduke (3344) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 10, 2009
This poured from the 22 oz bottle a very dark brown that let in no light and raised a light brown head with good retention and good lacing. Nose of roasted malts with chocolate, coffee, and ripe fruit. Soft creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is heavy on the coffee and the finish is dry. A very decent porter.

alexanderj (3311) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 5, 2009
On tap at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. Color was dark brown iwth a light brown head. Aroma was good, with roasted malt, caramel and vanilla. Flavor was really nice for the style. Caramel, roasted malt, coffee, vanilla and cocoa. A bit of chalk, but it wasn’t detracting. Good beer.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Pours dark brown with a hint of red and a medium sized white head. Nice chocolaty malt aroma with a similar flavor and a solid mouthfeel. Not the best porter in the world, but it’s hard to mess up this style and it was a solid enough offering.

madsberg (10144) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2009
Bottled. Dark brown with a red gleam. Light brown head. Roast, chocolate, coffee in the aroma. Quite nice. Flavour is dusty with some light roast and chocolate. Compared to the aroma the flavour is very bland. Medium bodied. Dry. Sweetish and roasty end. Its all about looks and smell in this beer. Flavour is not even close to par with the aroma.

thewolf (11158) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2008
Bottle at Madsberg 2008 Tasting. Pours light brown red with a small, cappucino, film head. Aroma is lightly roasted, some definite rubber and chocolate. Highish carbonation, a bit weak mouthfeel. Flavour has coffee, is rather dry and roasted. The rubber is in the flavours as well, and really detracts for me.

Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of bu11zeye. Dark brown with a vague reddish hue and a small off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma of hard roasted malt. Medium body dominated by the hard roasted malts. Surprisingly bitter finish. 291208
