3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2009 Limfjords Porter delivers a characteristically smoked hint along with chocolate and (light burned) coffee taste; very tasteful! A rather inexpensive beer (No Offense)!
In its plain look it might fool someone not to buy it... but DO try it! Enjoy - one of a kind! Very, very good on tap!

Courtesy boboski. Black/dark brown. 1cm cramy light brown head. Smoked deli meat, burnt malt, dark chocolate, whole grains, subtle whole coffee beans, and some cookie like malt. Finish is roast, smoke, and a ton of dark chocolate. Medium/full body, smooth. Lower carbonation works well in this one. Excellent porter.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Engelsmann drunk on 6/28/07
Nice fluffy brown-tinted-beige head atop a glowing, ruby-amber body with low carbonation and a high clarity. Head eventually recedes to cover, leaving light lacing.
Dates, hazelnuts, marzipan, toffee, brown sugar!! Wow, this is some decadent stuff, but at least quite complex. Liqueur-like alcohol warmth mixes with the sweet, above-mentioned notes, while a profound toffee maltiness soothes the nose. Towards the end, I get an interesting note of bitter orange peel or resin, that seems to sit on the back of a lightly smokey, moderately roasty note. However, it ends decidedly more clean and sweet, with vanilla and brown sugar mixing together and tapering off in a toffee laden finale. Medium strength of aroma, no flaws. Interesting and like many of these cult beers, the complexity/originality of it is its strong point.
Raisins and toffee keep things sweet as I take a sip, while the smokiness comes out even moreso in the flavor. Really unique, lovely mix of dry woodsmoke, alcohol warmth and sort of a rum raisin note, for lack of a better descriptor. Top this off with some brown sugar, a very soothing, malty texture and medium-low carbonation that stays out of the way, and you’ve got yourself an excellent sweet sipper. Vanilla and oily prune-like vinousness dance about on the finish as well, and the smoke is done tantalizingly tastefully. Dosent blow you out of the water, but keeps you wanting another sip. On the sweet side, of course, but dosent bludgeon you with crude sugars or a syrupy body (though with warming and breathing, the creaminess does begin to get a bit heavy). Dosent seem like much of a baltic porter to me.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2009 Flaske. Flot sortbrun farve med et klassisk brunt porterskum. EN smul røg i duften, men den rammer først for alvor i selve smagen der er domineret af røg og tørv. Superlækkert.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 cL bottle. Pours utterly black with a chocolate creamy brown head. Thick roasted and smoked malty aroma, notes of chocolate and coffee. Medium bodied. Lovely thick chocolate, liqourice and coffee flavour. Thick smoke note into the bitter finish. A true classic and a masterpiece amongst Danish brews.

Black with a decent brown head. Powerfull complex aroma of smoked malts, english liqurice, tar and black chocolate, very nice. Flavor is so smooth and enjoyable. Thich creamy raw coffee and chocolate, again with a smoked touch. The taste sticks in your mouth like tar and leaves a nice smooth smoked and roasted bitterness. This is an exelent piece of maltwork.

Bottle. Black with a light brown head. Smoke! A lot of smoke for not being a dedicated smoke beer. Also notes of coffee, brown sugar and maybe some caramel. Medium body.
