[email protected] Nordic, Tampere. Very deep ambery brown colour, small brown head. Aroma is mildly ashy, quite roasted as well as some slight notes of dark dry fruits. Flavour is roasted malts, some slight ashy and toffeeish notes along with some dark dry fruits. Mild notes of akevitt as well, but not disturbingly much. A very pleasant porter.

Travlr (26276) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 2, 2010
Bottle at the Publick House. Black, dark brown head that doesn’t last, but does leave slight lacing. Aroma of roasted coffee, milk chocolate. Taste is big roasted malt, subtle grappa in the middle, very subtle oak apparent only at the end. Interesting a complex, flavors are not overpowering. Well done!

Bottled, thnks Rune! Very black, rich creamy beige head. Sweet and soft, hugely full bodied. Creamy with salty licorice and milk chocolate before a peppery warming finish. Interesting and flavourful beer.

Opaque black - brown beer. No head. Dark malt nose with fruity spirit and a whisper of smoke. Dry palate. How to judge this beer without ever having tried Akevitt? Well it’s a porter with smooth dark malts and a trace of sourness but also lactose sweetness. No oaky vanilla barrel here - so what does the Akevitt barrel add? I think a fruity spirit that contrasts nicely with the dark malt. Decent.

Papsoe (25055) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2010
Bottle 50 cl. Pours an opaque dark brown with an orange hue and a beige head. Sweetish hard roasted malts and vanilla in the nose. Quite full-bodied, a little low in carbonation. Sweet notes of hard roasted malt, chocolate and vanilla. The Akevitt accents are rather distinct and so is the wood. The finish has warming alcohol combined with some malt bitterness. Nice one! 090110
