This had an average aroma.It had a great head and color.The color was a very dark brown,almost black.It tasted mostly like a stout,with hints of chocolate,has a bit of a sour bite.Very slight hint of musky spices.Pretty good beer,but for this style I would rather be drinking Fuller’s London Porter.This beer is very close to being a stout.

On draft at Stone bistro. Dark brown, a bit overly carbonated for me, but it has a nice aroma and flavor of spices with the peppers balancing it.

Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of JohnC. Pours a clear orangey brown with a lively and dissipating off-white head. Sweet cinnamon aroma - almost like a pumpkin ale. Solid body, lively carbonation with big bubbles. Lots of spice and brown sugar, some phenols and molasses. A little chocolate as well. Discreet bitterness. 231109

madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2009
Bottled. burgundy coloured. Unclear. Dense light brown head. Aroma of berries, spice, fruits. Quite peculiar and offensive in the nose. For me that is. Flavour of berries, caramel, spice, fruits and some grass. Medium to full bodied. Dry frutiys and caramelly end.
