garza (573) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - OCT 20, 2010
Pours black coffee look with a timid brown head. Sweet aroma of spices, roasty malt, some notes of wood. In the taste denotes presence of coffee, dark chocolate and some smokiness. Medium sourness toguether with medium sweetness. Medium body, creamy, soft carbonation, and a mid sweet after taste. Ok.

500mL bottle from DK. Pours black with tan head. Amazing nose of oak, smoke with some alcohol coming through. Taste is nice oaky notes, roasty malt, dark chocolate, Akevitt and some spice. A bit sour character. Finish is smooth and warming.

Dark dark brwon, but no foam at all. I think there was something wrong with this bottle, so you should test this beer out for yourself. Nice nose with yeast, burnt malt and a hint, just a hint of carraway. It ends up with coffee as well. No foam in the mouth, it got a rich taste with just alittle to much sweetnes, got spice, vanilla and licorice. This bottle had to be flawed, thats the only thing explaining the lack of Co2. If it had any Co2, it would been a different story!

Had this in a bottle at Sergios Beers of the world. It poured like motor oil and had a rich deep taste that wasn’t discernable at first. Amazing stuff.

KM (416) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2010
Bottle. Very dark brown body. Large fluffy pale brown head. Heavy aroma of cocoa, dried fruit, smoke. Complex heavy flavour. Smoke, dark chocolate, brown sugar. Pleasant carbonation. Fresh bitter and sweet finish. Nice. Not too heavy. (At home, 03.06.2010)

vyvvy (6524) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Pours very dark brown with a deep tan frothy head. The aroma has roasty malt, cola, dark figs, odd alcohol notes (probably from the barrel aging), light spice and some vanilla - quite nice. Medium / full body with some sharp carbonation. The flavor starts a bit thinner than the aroma with lots of dark fruit, milk chocolate, sharp alcohol (type of barrel?), light sourness and some burn. The finish is fairly hot and has a bit of phenolic spice. Nice porter.

This is a very good beer. The consistency is fantastic and the taste is full. Ive had two bottles of this beer, both batch 247 I feel that the first bottle had more oak and akevitt(aquavit) taste than the other? Might just be me, but i liked the first bottle better... Its very light carbonated, I cant help wonder if it would have been even better it it had a little more... Its not possible to get any head at all.

lusikka (7814) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2010
(Bottled batch #247 - brygget 30.09.2009. Tasted @ 04/14/2010) Beautiful dark colour with a minimal but lasting brown head. Roasted aroma with notes of coffee, syrup, alcohol and wood. Flavor has the same elements as the aroma but with an addition of smoke and of course akevitt. Lots of syrup and roasted coffee on the palate with a light carbonation. Long, almost wine-like and dry finish. This is almost like an imperial stout.

douglas88 (9425) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 29, 2010
500 ml bottle. Pours a pure black color with a medium brown head. A interesting aroma; herbal, lots of alcohol, earthy, sweet roasted malts. The flavor is similar; rich herbal flavors, moss, hot alcohol, chocolates, bitter roasted malts, some milkiness. Interesting. Tangy metallic and herbal flavors.
