Pours deep black, beige foam very nice retention and presentation. Nose is complex and spicy. Notes og coffee, dark sugar, Liquorice, chocolade and a warming alcohol. The beer ends medium sweet with balanced bitternes. No doubt one of the best IPS / Porters i have had so far. hefting81 (2) - - DEC 25, 2016 does not count
Nice porter with beautiful foam and a very balanced and lasting taste. Somewhat mild for a porter. I like it. Guruhso (998) - Grindsted, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2016
Bottle. Pitch black with big creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted, caramel, liqourice, coffee, rye and spices. Starts sweet but finish bitter with lasting roasted spicy notes. Light alcoholic warmth. Very good palate; Balanced and smooth - but a complex taste too. Medium body and oily texture. A good one. Korcz (3390) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 14, 2016

Tanken bag “Mørke” er opstået ud fra mit ønske om at skabe en øl, der har de samme kvaliteter som det mørke, krydrede og sødlige pumpernickel rugbrød. Den er derfor brygget med bl.a. maltet rug, mørkt sukker og fennikelfrø og kun let humlet.

deep dark brown colour, one inch, incredibly dense andstable beige head - even after 5 minutes half centimeter beige cream rests on the top of the beer; aroma of chocolate mousse, coffee, raisin and dried plum, maybe some herbs, too; taste of dark chocolate, coffee, dried plum, some herbal notes, spicy alcohol, rye bread and something milky, which makes it very smooth; great porter Alengrin (5722) - BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2016
Danish porter brewed in Norway, intending to imitate the taste of Pumpernickel, a German type of rye bread. Fairly thin but stable, creamy, densely structured, pale beige head opening rapidly in the middle but retaining in a steady rim around the glass and a ’veil’ of tan foam in the middle; black robe with mahogany edges only visible under bright light. Spicy and bready aroma of dried plums, soggy rye bread, toast, strong presence of salmiak candy, bayleaf, old dry thyme, old grapefruit peel, leather, sage, dried black olives, bitter cocoa, dry earth, elderberry, juniper berries, pine wood, old cigars, dried tree leaves, black tea, roasted peanuts, hazelnut shells. Onset of dried fruits (fig, raisin) but very low in sweetness, much more dominated by dried seaweed- and cured meat-like umami with a soft background sourishness, softly carbonated, lightly oily and smooth mouthfeel, brief caramelly touch quickly turning toasted bitter with this spicy rye quality to it and eventually becoming very stout-like roasted bitter (but more in the sense of burnt toast than e.g. coffee), enhanced by a spicy, leafy, slightly resinous hop bitterness ensuring an aromatic, very dry, long aftertaste where it all comes together, including impressions of old dried juniper berries and dry red wine. Not sure how this mirrors Pumpernickel bread, but in any case this is a rich, interesting porter with enough ’black’ maltiness or roasted bitterness to qualify as a stout - a common phenomenon in modern craft beer culture. Very enjoyable. djkatt (56) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2016
Draft @ Bootleggers CPH // 10 cl tulip taster
Pours dark brown/black with a reasonably-sized tan head. Rye malt seems to dominate the aroma with hints to the rest of the malt profile and fennel/liquorice, but it seems like mostly sweet rye. The taste follows this pattern, and the beer does not have any appreciable hop presence in this respect either. A lot of people apparently like it, and it is really not bad, but it also appears quite gimmicky to me, and the whole rye thing does not fall into my taste.

Gyönyörű, hatalmas, örökké tartó barna hab, fekete szín. Kávés, aszaltgyümölcsös illatvilág. Szenzációs, selymes, kávés, csokis ízbomba, aszalt gyümölcsökkel a háttérben. Testes, tökéletes egyensúlyú, nagyon finom sör, közepes, nem tolakodó keserűvel, enyhe szénsavtartalommal.

Draught at Taphouse, Cph. Pitch black with a thin, tanned head. Roasted aroma with dark malts, liquorice, coffee, chocolate, caramel malts, rye, dark sugars and spicy hints. Taste is lightly bitter. Full body with an oily texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes slightly dry with with dark malts, liquorice and fruity spicy hints. Red berries. Excellent Porter. Glad I finally could try this Danish micro brew classic.
