henrikb (1263) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2006
Draught – Almost black body with beautiful brown edge, huuuuge brown head forever lasting, beautiful laces; Very big nose, lacks a bit depth: bitter English licorice, which almost becomes medical, but also lots of bitter chocolate, and dried fruit; Very soft creamy textured, with time in mouth some bitterness appears; Extending into nicely bitter, quite hoppy finish that lasts forever. The body has perfect balance, evolving perfectly with lots of late hop and fresh nuts. One of the best bodied beers I ever had.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2006
Draught. Deep black with a small mocha head. A whack full of bitter chocolate and coffee roastiness in the aroma...I found it to be a lot more full in the aroma than the coffee porter. Beautiful silky roastiness, toffee toast, bitter chocolate, coffee, and a hint of alcohol. Super smooth with a delicate balance and layers and waves of chocolate flavour. The bitterness also tends to stick around for a while. Sampled at the Ølfabrikken Brewday on May 19, 2006.

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.

JorisPPattyn (9912) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 27, 2006
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.

Gusgus (237) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2006
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.
