COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Let’s just be honest about it: throughout history Denmark has always had troubles with the Swedes. There’s no end to the many times our small and peace loving country has been attacked by our huge bully of a neighbor. Some modern historians claim that we may not always have been entirely innocent, but then again…. historians have been wrong before. However, in times of pain and agony and Swedish aggression it’s good to have friends, and exactly such a friend was Polish nobleman Stefan Czarniecki, aka. The Red Hetman. Having had their asses severely beaten in Poland in 1658, Swedish troops on the run had cowardly invaded and occupied the Danish locations of Koldinghus and Als. But Czarniecki - commonly known as ’The Swede Slayer’ was not satisfied. So he simply chased the Swedes and entirely wiped them out of Denmark during the Siege of Kolding. A true hero that we are only happy to share with the Polish. The Swedes however, when not busy pissing their diapers, would for decades tell their kids "Eat up your dinner, or Czarniecki will come and get you". Had it not been for this brave soldier, the Danes may even today have had to visit a government store to buy their liquor, or actually believe Falukorv to be a sausage - oh the horror! If any, Czarniecki deserves a beer named after him, brewed with our Polish friends at Pracownia Piwa in Krakow. And like him it had to be rich, potent and extremely powerful. Na zdrowie!

Tasting @ Tim's. Pours dark brown, bit of beige nose. Hazy. Nose has lots of spices, toffee, dark cherries with some caramel. Taste has booze, lots of sweetness, charred caramelized cherries with some herbs. Cinnamon and Christmas spices, good bitterness and dry herbal linger in the finish. Sweet black bread pudding. Good stuff, enjoying this a lot.

Medium brown color. Very sweet nose with massive sakura mochi, toffee and dark fruit nose. Sweet palate, cinammon, sakura mochi, tons of dark fruit. So light bodied for 11%. Warming finish with cinammon finish that lingers. Awesome.

From notes: app: dark, no head, aroma: apple pie, some dark malts. In taste plum, cinnamon, some apples, caramel. Soft carbonation. Very interesting beer, especially for baltic porter. The taste was something unexpected but I really loved it.

From Boxbeers. In Teku glass. Playing Space Pilgrim Episode 4. Curious baltic porter, with vanilla and notes that remind me some kind of red fruits. In any case, its very original and easy to drink

Bottle 0.5 l, Tap Hous, Kraków, Poland.
Ciemnobrązowe piwo z niezbyt obfitą, beżową pianą oraz intensywnie rozchodzącym się, słodkawym, owocowym i zbożowym, lekko palonym aromatem. W smaku gęste i złożone, słodkawe, na pierwszy plan wysuwają się ciemne owoce i mleczna czekolada, w tle pozostaje kawa, finisz natomiast jest przyjemnie palony oraz rozgrzewający.

Bottle, bought @Kvickly, Middelfart. The rating that AB-INBEV didn't like (or that I didn't quite save'. Anyways, it's been a while since I had the beer, so have to rate from memory. Classic Black with a small head. Aroma has tar, roasted malts, chocolate. light spicy edge. Lowe carbonation, fine dry and very oily mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, sticky, som tar and soy sauce, slightly boozy edge to it, lingering malty bitterness.

Rune (14045) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2017
Many thanks to Skinnyviking for a 500ml bottle of this one. Stable bubbly beige head. Fragile lacing. Coal black body. Attractive aroma of dark brown malts and dark spices, mid-sweet. Rather sweet taste profile of dark dough, raisin and cinnamon - porridge impression. Welcome roasted ending. Yuletide qualities. (Hotel room, Copenhagen 10.08.2017).

Apple pie, spices, bisongrass, chocolate, caramel, coffee in nose. Pours dark brown with beige head. Taste is sweet with chocolate, caramel, bisongrass, cinnamon, nutmeg, apple pie, coffee, prunes. Medium bitter finish, average to full body, soft carbonation. Overall very unique porter with nice twist, not really my thing but I appreciate it.
