Aroma; roasted black malts, grassy mild hops, chocolate vanilla n liquorice notes. Look; black, flathead. Taste; roasted dark malts, dark caramel, careful liquorice, grass, milky notes - roasted malts and choco-milk in finish. Feel; solid, feels as lighter than 8.2 to me. Overall; there’s much more liquorice in X-porter from Midtfyns than in this, this is almost milk stout. [50cl.btl 8.2% BB08.09.2016]

The aroma is full of liquorice, coffee, chocolate, roasted barley and malts along with some dried fruits, mainly figs. The color is pitch black. The taste is full of chocolate, liquorice, coffee, dried fruits (figs), roasted barley and malt. A nice beer!

(5) Average at best. So this beer was given to me from my wife - an absolute surprise coming home from work - a great balanced and intense beer with lots of different flavours appearing.

Milter (834) - Nyborg, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2017 Lækker imperial stout fra Midtfyn, men ikke bedre end andre af denne øltype. Lidt for meget lakrids.

This stout is black with splendid solid foam where small yeast residues remnant on top and shows an unfiltered stout where all the flavor and aroma nuances are retained. An aroma of dark chocolate and coffee rises from the glass, but the thick rigid foam covers securely over more good surprises. The taste is good, bold dark chocolate with a sprinkling of distinctive mocha notes. Slowly smooths the mochas bitter tones in a taste of sweet english licorice with few bitter undertones towards the end. Finally, it provides a sweet stout with beautiful complex flavors of coffee, chocolate and especially licorice. Easy hoppy end pulls the aftertaste into an eternity which, for my part, like may last a lifetime. This stout is simply a masterpiece. A stout that should be enjoyed over a long time and which rewards the patient with long delicate aftertaste constantly change character and nuance. A wonderful stout!

50cl bottle, served in tulip. Pitch black colour with medium white/beige head. Aroma is liquorice and sweet malts (faint), not in line with regular Imperial Stouts. Same taste, lacks heavy dark malts...that is something most IS fans surely don’t like. Almost no bitterness, the palate is basically sweet. Medium body, good carbonation. It’s ok, different. With my eyes closed I wouldn’t have guessed it is an IS...something rather intermediate.

Clear, very dark brown. Fizzy, airy and unstable light tan head. Roasted aroma with licorice. Similar flavour, sweetish with roasted bitterness.

Bamsen78 (5273) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle. Pours cloudy nearly black with airy tan head. Clear aroma of caramel malt, fruit, liquorice and roast. Bitter, roasty flavour with sweetish notes of malt, caramel and yeast. Bitter notes of liquorice and hops. Roasty and estery aftertaste. Decent but not really extraordinary.

500 ml bottle @ Fox and Hounds, Aabenraa. Pitch black body with a creamy beige head. Aromahas dark, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and liquorice. Flavor is really smooth, sweet dark malt, gentle roasted, dark chocolate, coffee and perfectly integrated salt liquorice, not too much and not too little. Fine balanced body as well. Very well made. Thanx to Christoffer at F&H.
