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 (3375) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 14, 2016

Tanken bag “Mřrke” er opstĺet ud fra mit řnske om at skabe en řl, der har de samme kvaliteter som det mřrke, krydrede og sřdlige pumpernickel rugbrřd. Den er derfor brygget med bl.a. maltet rug, mřrkt sukker og fennikelfrř og kun let humlet. Lore (2671) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 18, 2016
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 (5262) - 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.

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. alexsdad06 (10282) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2016
500 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99 originally years ago and retried recently. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, dark chocolate, earthy bitterness, dark grainy rye, I don’t know if I would call this pumpernickel or not, ashy, decent porter nonetheless. kapusil (1413) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 20, 2016
0.5l bottle. Pitch black body, light brown head. Aroma and taste of chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, oak and nutmeg. Low carbonation and velvety texture. Very nice.
