Pours very dark brown, almost black, tan creamy ring on top. Mint, fresh, roasted acidic aroma, dry Arabica grains. Medium bodied with hints of charcoal, dark grainy roast submerged in acidic solution. Rounded, whole porter. CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 20, 2007
(500ml bottle) Purchased through the Bieropholie Private Imports. Pours a gorgeous, cream brown head and an opaque body. Nose of intense soya sauce, molasses and cold coffee. The flavour is somewhat unbalanced - much like Sam Adams Triple Bock - I don’t know if this needs to age (its only 7.5%) as the taste is too ripe. It almost has a salty, iodine overtone to with the flavours of molasses and coffee in the finish. A decent beer all in all but overly praised for its uniqueness when there are numerous of this robustness. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2007
500ml, courtesy of Maria--thank you! This is another European classic that I’d been itching to try. I must confess that it’s a further exhibit in the evidence that I have an insane sweet tooth even in the beer world. Big dark pour with a thick, creamy, moussy tan head. Vinous, sharp nose, lots of dark fruits puckering around the edges, plus some smoke for even more sharpness. Big forward attack, sturdy body with some oiliness to it and a big splash of flavor: roast, char, coffee, and a clingy long finish of sour saltiness. I don’t know how you get such a decent big body out of a beer that’s so completely attenuated without putting out something on the order of 15% abv. I can respect the skill inherent in that, but this is just too dry for me to really flip over. rederic (3344) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2007
Deep dark color, with a tan-colored head, sweet chocolatey roasted malt nose, with some subtle smoky, dark coffee accents, with a yeasty fruity winey note in the aroma follows through on medium-bodied palate with a yeasty winey fruity, and a rich sweet dark roasted malt character, a liquorice accent, with a good dark coffee grain roastiness, with a floral hop leafiness, leading towards a dark malt roastiness finish. cpagh (1) - DENMARK - MAY 14, 2008 does not count
A grade Danish porter with a black body and a tight creamy head.
The aroma is light, with notes of roasted grains.
The flavor is light malty with a long bitter finish.

Bottle from 07, shared by Derek. Pours a deep dark black, thin dark tan head. Coffee, slight oxidization, char and roast. Oxidized, sweet plum and prune, malty and lots of char though. But the plum and prune notes are tough to get by. Chocolate and char, more coffee. Long roast bitterness and more oxidization. Lingering roast and char. POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2011
Dark beer with a ok fine brown head. Aroma is slightly fruty and roasted. Flavour is Roasted and bitter. Lenusik (119) - Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
I must have had a bad bottle because this Porter didn;t wow me like it wowed others. In fact, I thought it was average at best as far as beer goes, and below average for a porter. The pour is nice dark brown (I matched it against some coal I have and it certainly failed to be jet black) with a brown head. The aroma was weak chocolate, weak coffee, and noticeable alcohol (a no-no in a 7.5% beer). Flavour is all over the place, a little coffee, a little chocolate, a little licorice, and a little vanilla, but nothing stood out as being supreme.
