   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
GoufCustom (1816) - HONG KONG - NOV 6, 2016

500 ml bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Looks: Opague deep blackish brown with a thin layer of dirt-like yeast sedimentsExplosive four finger head with crumpety beige foam which lasts for 4 minutes; Good sticky lacing with slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant sweet dark malt, with strong roastyness, rich chocolate, cocoa, roasted coffee, caramel, sticky toffee, strong toast, raisins, cream, sugar, dark bread, strong yeast and very light grass.

Taste: Mid to strong sweet full dark malt, with strong roastyness, rich cream, fresh toast, liquorices, toffee, caramel, chocolate, fair black coffee, floral, strong molasses, strong bread, yeast, lime, quite strong bitter hops and grass.

Body: Medium body. Slick and very creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Full dark maltyness in a solid background. Very creamy and smooth. Liquorices and rich cream are omnipresent, with black coffee and chocolate seems hidden. Good caramel and sticky toffee, so are the bready fresh toast with floral and strong molasses. Moderate lime to round. Very tasty and nice!

Hoppiness: Light grass in nose. Floral, lime and grass in taste; Bitterness is quite strong for a lasting, mid to high astringent toasty malty finish.

After Taste: Quite Dry; Very creamy and sweet bitter to mouth.

Comments: This is one of the few standouts from Ørbæk and with good reason: Great head and looks, layered and colorful aroma, very creamy and toasty dark malt taste, and ends with good limey hoppiness with liquorices. This is almost like a compacted Baltic Porter, with all the good bits shine with good effects. A great Porter and will definitely buy again!

P.S.: So this this my 1666th rating? Nice! Thanks for the Slayer “Raining Blood” video! :-)

Look; huge mocca cream on jet black body. Aroma; black roasted malts, cocoa, coffee, grass. Taste; black malts, roasted malts, fruity liquorice, coffee, cocoa - leading to a dark chocolate finish. Alright on palate, uptempo carbonation. Overall tasty, why no plums? But ok anyway. [50cl brown bottle, abv7%, BB180317, [email protected] Middelfart DK]

yngwie (16760) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle. A dense, two-finger dark beige head sits on top of a black-looking body. Cute. Leaves lacings too. It’s really pleasant on the nose, with mocha, a touch of dark chocolate and caramel, some roasted malts and even more coffee. It’s a bit thin on the palate, with a nice carbonation level. Full body. Chocolate and coffee in the flavor too, but not as intense and pleasant as the aroma. Nice anyway. Lasting finish with a faint touch of grass. Well, this must be the best I’ve ever had from Ørbæk. Especially the aroma is nice. 131231
