33 cl bottle. No yeast in bottom. Very black colour with a nearly creamy head. A really pleasant smoke aroma. I love this flavour of roasted malt, smoke and hints of coffee it ends very smooth and tasteful.

Soapy cocoa-colored head. Very hoppy aroma. Tobacco taste at the end. Slight burnt taste that lingers on the palate. Nothing spectacular.

Out of bottle,thanks rich. Aroma of strong hops and mud. Pour was a dark brown. Flavor was dark roast almost burnt, peppery and tobaccoish. Palate was okay but I just couldn’t get past the earthen dirtlike taste. Overall it was okay just not for me.

dark brown with a fizzy ring around the edge of the glass. nose has burnt malts and licorice. flavor is very burnt, with a peaty tobacco finish. the burnt flavor is a little bit too heavy for my liking. there is a distinct hoppy vein running through the background on this as well.

This is the best porter ever made. Black colour with aroma of licorice and malt. huge brown mostly lasting head. Smooth taste of chocolate and a full body.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Quite creamy and roasty with a burnt mouthfeel - like a charred tree. Vinous and thick with plenty of flavor. Tar-like in some ways. A serious stout-ish porter for purists. Not to be trifled with. Perhaps the slightest hint of alcohol, which is remarkably subtle given its ABV. Well done!!!! A superlative example of the best Denmark has to offer.

On tap at Christian Firtal, Odense. Very dark, very smoky. Loads of coffee and dark chocolate. Licorice too. Quite a lot of sharp bitterness and some woody notes on the finish. Full mouthfeel. There’s a lot going on, but the abiding memory is of the smokinesst. Top notch.
