En rejse gennem vores Porter minder om Dantes vandring gennem det hensides: Først er der mørket – skabt af kulsort malt. Siden er der skærsilden – med rensende røgmalt og humle. Til sidst er der paradis – med gejstens hellige virkning. For ”gær” kommer fra ”gist” kommer fra ”gejst”. Undergæret.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2007
It’s a black porter with a nice, creamy light brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and a hint of rope and tarr. The flavour is initially quite smooth, but then comes a burnt bitterness with notes of roasted malt and licorice. It’s an OK and quite nice porter, but a bit monotonous in it’s expression. 2259

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2007
Draught at Plan B, Copenhagen
Black color with a creamy beige head. The aroma is mild, but nice, with coffee notes and rubharb candies (I wonder if they exist in Italy only, though; it’s sweet caramel or toffee, but more sourish). Good body structure, good mix of malt (with it’s sugars) and roasted malt (with their bitterness and light sourness). In the final, there is the sweetness again with the bold, roasted bitterness, and a hint of salty liquorice. Good.

Bottled. A pitch black beer with a huge brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of chocolate. The flavor is sweet malty again with strong notes of chocolate combined with roasted malt, which gives it a dry and bitter finish.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2009 (On tap) Black and almost opaque with a reddish hue and a creamy, beige head. Some licorice in the aroma. Fairly full-bodied with a sweetish aroma of roasted malt, some licorice notes and a malt astringency in the finish. But generally a well rounded and pleasant Porter. 110507
