Pours pitch black, with a thick brown head.
Dense, complex aroma, lots of roasted malt, toffee, caramel, hops, wood, vanilla, dried fruits, nuts, spices, tobacco, prunes.
Semi-sweet, full bodied, high bitterness, creamy CO2.
Compact taste, heavily roasted, malty, chocolate, espresso beans, licorice, tobacco, smoke, wood, vanilla, ashes, prunes, spices, cinnamon. Very smooth and well balanced, the sweetish Port character helps to mellow the tannins out. Sweet!

(37.5 cl bottle from Amager Bryghus; Batch 245) Pours black with frothy, toffee head. Impressive retention and lace. Aroma has oak, vanilla and raisin. Smooth and pleasant. Creamy texture, softly carbonated, full-bodied with a subdued, roasted finish complemented by oak and raisin notes. Taste is dark and roasted with a mild bitterness and a hint of acidity covered well by the aroma. Alcohol is well hidden. Surprisingly drinkable. The barrel maturation has really rounded off the character of this beer. Very recommendable! Ratman197 (15376) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 18, 2013
