(Draught) Almost black with a small, beige head. Sweetish-licoricey, moderately roasty aroma. Slightly sweet, nicely licoricey, smooth and pleasant flavor. Almost full body with low carbonation. Very well balanced, enjoyable and full-bodied stout, without being cloying. Splitenz (370) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 30, 2014
A porter of the "dangerously easy to drink" variety (it holds 7% ABV after all), this is a thirst quencher and a taste heavy beast all rolled into one. Pitch black with a crême brulée coloured foam. Then there’s sugary roasted malt along with a nice ash flavor (yes, I like that) and a coffee and licorice finnish.
And all this from Nibe, the former herring capital of the Limfjord.

Black colour, not much head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, strong roasted malts and also some slight stinging alcohol. Flavour is alcohol, sweet malts, coffee and mild roasted notes. Aftertaste gets bigtime roasted malts meeting alcohol. Even though the alcohol hints it’s a quite nice and wellbalanced beer.

Dark ruby, almost opaque color, small head. Licorice in the nose. Very solid, tasty porter. A bit sweetish, good malt profile, some licorice and coffee. Nothing extreme here, good! I like it and reserves a title "the best non-extreme beer @EBF 2008".

Nice toasty aroma with no roast; nutty and British-like. Black with nice lacy tan whisps. Excellent strong porter with no burnt, stouty character and very fruity and nutty. Medium body, moderate carbonation, clean finish. tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2008
