Vanilla Rye Porter There is absolutely nothing SEXY about the Danish winter. It’s WET, cold and gray. The only sensible THING to do when winter comes knocking is to find the nearest cave, STOCK up on beer and HIBERNATE until spring time. That’s why we brewed this BEER. So you can bring it to your CAVE. A dark beer brewed for dark times. And unlike the DANISH winter – this beer is in fact very sexy. BIG oily mouthfeel, ENORMEOUS frothy brown head, VULGAR spicy rye and CHOCOLATE aroma, followed by a SMOOTH roasted aftertaste.

yespr (39991) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2012
From tap at Ølbaren. Pours hazy dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malty and caramelish. Toasted malty, overripe fruity and light yeasty. Vague vanilla, chocolate and fruity, strange, seems slight off. Dry malty finish.

Ungstrup (34023) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2013
Cask at Bishop Arms, Copenhagen. A dark red-brown beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, straw, moldy grass, and hints of chocolate, leading to a dry finish.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy reddish brown with a lively light brown head. Lively and dissipating as a soda pop head. Medium body, very, very lively nose - the kind that almost gets in your nose. Some sweetish roast but also some yeast and phenol character. Roasted malt bitter finish. Not a bad beer, but has some flaws in this incarnation. 140313

Opaque dark brown beer with a big fluffy tan head. Airy dry palate with fine carbonation. Brown malts with a little tang. Trace of Camp Coffee. Finishes dry and airy. An over carbonated plain porter. Meh!

yngwie (16423) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle. More or less black body, topped by a dense, creamy beige head of moderate size. Lots of vanilla in the aroma, roasted malts, coffee and a little sourish hint. Some sweetness in the flavor, but it’s quite dry, with lots of carbonation. Roasted malts, coffee, vanilla and some sourish maltyness in the flavor. Full-bodied and lightly oily on the palate. Lasting finish with roasted malts, chocolate and vanilla. Quite decent, but sort of messy. 140608

saxo (16377) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle @ fonefan berliner weisse, cream ale multistate tasting. Nice head with good duration. Color is dark brown. Aroma and taste are dominated by prickling from the carbonation so it can be hard to distinguish. But behind the carbonation some notes of fruits, roast malt, caramel and hops.

Bottle @ Berliner Weisse Takeover Ulfborg, 2013. Day 2. Pours dark brown with a frothy head. Overcarbonated. Yeasty and dusty nose and flavor. DMS. A bit of roast and chocolate. Close to an infection.
