COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: En stor og kraftig Porter med en umiskendelig og lækker kaffearoma. En blød og lækker øl, selvom den med sine knap 10 % er en kraftig herre. Både Cascade og Simcoe skinner fint igennem de ristede elementer og blander sig dejligt med den ristede aroma og kaffen.

English: It’s a beer that’s been thought about for quite some time – actually since the brewers first visit to Sherbrooke Liquor in Edmonton, AB, Canada a few years back, and finally I did it – I manned up and did it! After a whole freaking day of brewing coffee for this beer I can truly say it is Craft. If not devoted to the product who in their right mind would brew hundreds of litres of coffee for a beer? The result is a big and bold smooth Porter with discrete vanilla and coffee notes.
Hops: Magnum, Nelson Sauvin Malts: Pilsner, Caramel, Rye, Oats, Chocolate, Black, Vanilla and coffee.

Creamy white head atop a black body. Very cardboard front in the aroma, some buttery base. Flavours is gritty and coffee. Some soya. Very good.

Mørk, mørk brun med et lysebrunt skum, skummet la seg som et tynt lokk. Aroma av røstet malt, kaffe, vannilje og hint av karamell. S,aken følger aroma, men får litt innslag av sjokolade og treverk. Fin fylde og en ettersmak som varte en god stund.

Poured deep dark brown with minimal head. Aroma of roast malt, dark chocolate, roast malt and vanilla. Medium to full body, flavour as the aroma, bitter sweet finish.

Klimaet (77) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2014
Pours pitch black with a medium light brown head. Aroma heavily dominated by roasted coffee and sweet, dark fruits, some chocolate, caramel and some vanilla. Taste is very roast-dominated with a good but faint, sweet (and bittersweet) vanilla-aftertaste. Quite a good porter - would’ve liked some more vanilla.

Lawger (83) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Pours black with a finger of light brown head. The aroma has a very prominent coffee tone, like a quality espresso with a high amount of robusto beans. Add to that a heavily roasted, almost smoky maltiness, licorice and dark chocolate. I can barely detect a feint vanilla hint which I never would have got unless I knew it was there. Lighter on the palate then expected but with a creamy texture. Roasted tones to the fore and a massive bitterness (on par with a fresh double IPA) which stays on the palate for a long time. Not a great balance, but a cool brew.

Bamsen78 (2955) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle @ D-Day in Mojnlandet :-) Pours cloudy very dark brown with stable tan head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with notes of coffee. Dark flavour of roast, malt and coffee, with subtle touches of fruit and alcohol. Bitter afteraste with boozy notes. OK but where is my vanilla?

Pitch black, small beige head. Sweet, roasted aroma. Flavour has coffee, but not much vanilla. Creamy mouthfeel. Nice.

On tap at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Decent although very dominated by coffee and as such it lacks the finesse of some of the better examples in this style.
