Bottled (from Estate Wine, Holstebro). Deep brown colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, some spices, quite mellow along with toffee. amd some mild dark fruits. Flavour is dark fruits, rather ashy and roasted along with some mild oxidized notes as well. Yet very nice. TBone (18553) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2010

Dark brown color, decent brown head. Coffeish, cocoa aroma. Medium-bodied. Lots of cocoa, roasted malts, some bready notes, coffee, chocolate. Very soft palate. Enjoyable.
Draught at KØ10. Mild roasted aroma, hint of liquorice. Black colour. No head. Roasted flavour. A bit of tartness. Tastes a bit infected, but of course, it has been cellared for a few years. cgarvieuk (26365) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2010

Bottle at Tom’s Tasting, April 2009. Dark brown colour. Big roast burnt malt aroma. More on the palate. Also some chocolate. Plus some hop bitterness. Medium bodied. Good stuff.

500. Thanks, Maria! Pours jet black with occasional ruby sparkles in the corners. Gorgeous, delectable-looking, surging bubbly tan head that settles before long to a thick, creamy mousse. Looks so like chocolate. Nice sweet roasty milk chocolate nose, with a bit of stale CO2/compressed gas smell. Decidedly creamy body on the attack that settles to a pleasantly light and drinkable level across the mid-palate. Nice roasty chocolatey mid-palate flavors. Mildly roasty baking chocolate finish that sticks around a fair bit. This is a nice drinkable porter; taking the same flavors and making them bolder would boost it a bit, and killing that compressed air smell would help a lot as well.

A Mes rate: bottle at The Cadster’s Spotify tasting.Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2009
Black with a good light brown head. Big earthy malt with a distinct roasty character. Loads of bitter dark chocolate and a spicy wood finish. A little straight down the line but still very enjoyable.
Black of color with a brown head. An aroma of rasted malt, malt, spice and dark chocolate. A flavor of metal, roasted malt, spice and weak chocolate. ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2009
