First impressions are a very high carbonated porter with nougat colored foam. It decreases with time to a moderate but sustained volume and releases the delightful aromas of hard roasted malt and caramel. The taste is rich in caramel, roasted notes, anise and dark bitter chocolate. Its hoppy bitterness is retracted and maintains most of the roasted notes with anise in a long time. Its carbonation dots on the tongue right at the beginning, and just its relatively high content of carbon dioxide is what distinguishes it most from the many other similar porters. larsga (7690) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2012
Big brown head. Opaque black body goes deep dark brown at the
very edge. Roasty blackberry aroma with earthy notes. Dry-sweet
blackberry alcohol taste with chocolatey earthy notes.
Mid-to-light body. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish earthy
roasty chocolatey taste with blackberry metal notes. Nice,
quite light and drinkable. (0.5l bottle, Kihoskh, Copenhagen.) sunevdj (4157) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2012

07-JUL-2011, bottle @home, from "Barleywine".
Huge huge light brown/grey lasting head on brown body.
Very roasted with chocolate and coffee on the nose.
The same in the taste and also charamel and a good dose of hops.
A bit to high on carbonation but other than that very pleasant.
One of the best porters I have had.

Bottle. A huge, creamy, beige head sits on top of an almost black body. The aroma is roasted with chocolate, coffee and a good dash of hops. Some sourness blends in. It’s roasted in the flavor too, with the same chocolate and coffee found in the aroma, and a pleasant bitterness leading to a mostly roasted finish. Full-bodied and dry on the palate. A beer that is maybe a bit one dimesional, but nice anyway. 110311 JanLaursen (3226) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2011
Black with big and long live cappucino-foamy head. Smells like coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malt. The taste also has a little tart tone and a nice hop bitter bite that lingers in the mouth for a long time. gunnfryd (15652) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2011

Bottle from Bunkerbeer. Pours deep brown with frothy, caramel head. Rich sweet and bitter taste with aromas of licorice and coffee. Well balanced beer with a nice balance of dark sweetness and subtle yet rich bitterness. Unpretentious but hits the spot. Good on its own in an easy chair in front of the fireplace after a day out.
