Draught @ Ølfestival Valby - CBF09, Copenhagen, Denmark.yespr (44706) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2009
Clear dark black color with a large, frothy, good lacing, fully - mostly lasting, light brown head. Aroma is heavy malty, roasted, burnt, chocolate, wood, vanilla. Flavor is heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium to full, texture is creamy, carbonation is soft. 
CBF09. From tap. Pours pitch black and with a small chocolate brown head. Smooth roasted malt, chocolate port wineous notes. Wood too. Smooth port barrel flavoured with a nice roasted malt base. Subdued chocolate notes. Light sweetness. Full bodied. Very intense. Acidic and roasted flavoured finish, light tarish. Lovely, yet a prefer the base version above this - sometimes the barrel ageing levels out the subtle complexities of a really well crafted beer.

Entered to celebrate my rating number 14,700. A black beer with a thin dark brown head. The aroma has strong notes of roasted malt with a burnt edge combined with notes of alcohol, fruits, and soy sauce. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt, combined with notes of wood, berries, malt, wine, and alcohol, leading to a dry roasted finish. The alcohol leaves a slight burn in the mouth. joergen (27970) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2009

Dry roasted and warming alcoholic finish. oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 25, 2009
Bottled (thanks brunnsbe!). Black colour, small brown head. Aroma is quite much imperial stouty along with very sticky sweet notes. Flavour is rather much the same. This one is quite much too sweet for my likings, but still rather drinkable as a slowsipper.

Lovely. 160509 omhper (24963) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2010
Bottled. One of my most sought after beers. Pours very black with small head. Aroma of licorice, tobacco and port. Very sweet and a bit alcohol where concentrated chocolatey flavours tries to swim in a sea of oaky alcohol,. The intense sweetness together with the high bitterness makes it too inky. However good I wanted this to be it feels like the extra sweetness from the port pushed i tover the edge into inkyness. madmitch76 (24360) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2012

Opaque black beer, short lived dark chocolate coloured head. Soft palate. Rich dark malt with unsweet dark chocolate and repressed dark fruits. I know Port Wine pretty well and Niepoort Ports tend to have some Sherry characteristics, so no big surprise to find some Sherry character from the barrel. As the beer warms up the nose opens up and reveals dark chocolate and the flavours integrate more. Minerals in the finish.
Bottle courtesy of RasmusOtt, thanks! Totally black, scant brown edge head. Aroma of dark chocolate syrup, liquorice, prunes, plums. Taste is concentrated cocoa, extra dark espresso, prune juice. Very nice.
