50cl bottle from Slackermads, as part of the EU Local Swap 2017, thanks! A dark brown/black beer with a huge most good lasting tan head. Aroma of sweet and dark malt, chocolate, lactose. Taste of mild roasted dark malt, chocolate, sugar, lactose, nice! NosirIwont (2606) - Husum, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2017
Bottle. 5.9%. Best before 19.12.18. Pours an unclear/murky dark brown, with a tan head. Fruit and berry aroma, slightly tart. Light roasted malt in the background, increasing a bit as it warms. Plastic note as it warms as well. Weak flavour; (dark-ish) fruits, berries. Remote (citrusy) hops in the background. Not a whole lot else going on. Mildly bitter finish, hints of licorice, with a lingering metallic note and a dark chocolate-y bitterness. Bit of (roasted) malt and an ashy note as it warms, as well as light citrusy hops. A wee bit too much carbonation. Overall so-so; not bad, but really not too porter-like; too much fruit and too little malt, though warming does make it a bit better. Also, both aroma and flavour are somewhat weak. Inoffensive. 27.10.17. tiong (7669) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2017
Draught @ Kitty's, Helsinki. Pours pitch black with a tiny head. Aroma of licorice, roasty malts, rye and coffee. Taste is smooth, sweetish and slightly roasty with loads of licorice, hints of chocolate, cocoa and licorice. Finish is sweetish and syrupy with some roastiness and licorice. A bit unbalanced. huineman (731) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 5, 2017
50 cl bottle served in snifter. Pours cloudy mahogany with a rapidly vanishing tan head. Aroma is espresso coffee, bitter herbs, milk chocolate, cardamom. Taste is soft and very smokey, quite bitter indeed, and long-lasting. I do like it. k_gadeberg (219) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2017

Pours black with beige foam.
Easy drinkable, small notes of liquorice.
It could easily be stronger and more intense.

Flaske: Brunsort klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Suveræn tekst til etiketten. Duften er det svageste udtryk i øllen. Den kommer langsomt som øllen varmer op. SMagen er sødlig porter med et godt humlebid der gør den rigtig lækker og balanceret. Flot øl. kraddel (9170) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2017
