Thanks to 2 Danes of whom I don’t even know their names I was able to taste this terrific Porter during the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation. Very strong chocolate, coffee and hops aroma. Black color, brown head, good lace. Very sweet, lots of chocolate and coffee, almost like a coffee liquor. Intense viscous and dens.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fully black, jet black even; small dark brown head. Coffee nose, very black coffee, but slightly sweetened, swinging to moccha. Treacle, sweet with very burnt notes without becoming bitter. Coffee flavour as main aroma. Syrupy, treacle syrup-like, fully viscous. Very thick, but all in all quite usual porter flavours.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2008 Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2006. Very nice rounded caramelly roasted porter with some licorice and chocolate. Soft round and medium sweet taste, which I like. One of the better porters out there, but lacking some complexity and character.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Draught at Købehavnske Øldage] Dark black, creamy head. Rich coffee aroma. Dryish and smooth. Tar competes with coffee for domination. Solidly malty, but towards the finish it turnsh somewhat harsh and inky. In my opinion Ølfabrikken makes other beers that are far better.

Bottle via trade with BierKönig - Thanks Jeppe! Pours almost black with a large pillowy tan head that stays very well and laces thickly on the sides of the glass. Bold robust aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and sweet chocolate. Flavor is coffee, chocolate and bold roasted malts, a little toffee, and mild hops on the finish. Quite creamy and robust on the palate. Oily but chewy in the mouth. Reminds me alot of Founders Breakfast Stout actually. Very nice brew and very worthy of it’s top 50 spot!
