COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Das Bier der Gerechten" - limited edition.
Moderate Hopfung mit der Sorte Perle und Magnum unterstützt die kräftigen Malzaromen mit einer feinen Herbe. Caramel-, Röst- und dunkle Braumalze werden reichlich eingebraut und sorgen für die tiefschwarze Farbe, ein cremiges Mundgefühl und lassen ein kräftiges Duftspiel von Bitterschokolade und Kaffee entstehen. Lange kalte Gärung mit untergäriger Hefe lässt 7,5 % Alkohol entstehen, der den Körper wohlig wärmt. 16.9°

Kudos to the old Baltic pirate for exploring another inlet within the vast extension of the Baltic Porter Seas. After the sweet, cloying, brownish Hanse Porter, this Stark Bier goes further towards the other end of the style. It never really gets there though. Although nice and dark, almost black, with a decent, beige head, it is still sweet and extremely malty, with caramels, roasts, ashes, nuts and some smoke on the flavour and aroma. Not much of dark chocolates behind the mentioned flavours and aromas. This ship never reaches those boggy shores for the fruitiness of lingonberries and the tartness of cranberries. There’s indeed a pinch of saltiness in the finish, but it is overshadowed, or better – over diluted – by the rather thin, watery body. I’d like to see more of an oily, slick feel. We’d expect more adventure, blood, decapitations, from a brewery such as Stoertebeker.

Clear black colour, firm beige head. Aroma of chocolate, Schwarzbrot, caramel and molasses. Sweetish flavour, malts, caramel and banana. Finish caramel, banana and malts. Not my favourite porter, in my perception it’s even closer to a bock than to a porter.

MiP (14465) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle, 7.5%. Nicely roasted aroma. Roast coffee and a hint of salt liquorice.Almost black colour. Brown shine, seems clear. Good light brown head, semi-stable. The flavour starts off lagery, turning nicely roasted and bready. Like a strong Schwarzbier. A little salty in the finish, and also has some earthy notes, perhaps a little horse.

Bamsen78 (4414) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with airy light tan head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel with notes of roast and fruit. Bitter, roasty flavour, with sweet notes of caramel and malt, and touches of dark chocolate. Subtle hints of liquorice in the rather roasty finish. Nice, if a trifle watery.

I actually expected something like a Heller Bock before opening the bottle and therefore I was quite surprised of this deep black brew with smooth body and very low head that came out of the bottle. The nose was okay, but high malty with some hints of nuts. Taste is alright as well: Bittersweet chocolate, sweetened espresso, brown sugar and caramel. Hints of leaves. The finish is quaffable but little bit too malty for me. Anyway, certainly q good beer.

Ein wunderbares Porter. In der Nase mir viel Karamell und Röstnoten gesegnet, zur Mitte hin süß und zum Abschluss auch. Es bleibt einzig die Frage, ob Zucker zugesetzt wurde. Ansonsten süß und süffig. Echt nett.
