UPDATED: AUG 24, 2003 What a flavor. Definately smoked malt and laquirce. One of the few porters thats not as the rest. johans (36) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2008 Very strong and powerful beer. Black as tar and almost as thick. Notes of coffee, leather, tarred hemp rope and salty liqorice.. Strong flavour. LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2003
A perfect example that excellent beer need not be expensive
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2006 Pitch black colour with an impressively lasting brown head. Smoky aroma with coffee and chocolate. Flavour has roasted malts and licorice ending in a LONG, dry finish. The first time a tried this it was too smoky and heavy for me. There is, however, no doubt that this is a fantastic porter and one of Denmarks finest beers! mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2003
black with a nice tan head. big mocha aroma. nice balance of flavours, burnt sugar, raisin, smoke, and roast. very nice. Oakes (19027) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2003
Near black colour. Roasted espresso nose with bitter chocolate. Long, roasty flavours - lean and dry, with some burnt fruits. The flavours are pure and beautiful. Along with Koff and Zywiec, the class of the Baltic Porter style.

Black with a brown head. Smokey nose, light roasty organic notes. Body is nicely roasted with a good hint of smoke. Chocolate flavors, finishes with a milky moutfeel. Very nicely done baltic porter, I love this style more with every sample. Radek Kliber (7487) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 19, 2003
It’s very nice that few separate elements of aroma work out so nice mixing them self together in neat blend. Very, very nice, attractive to my taste buds, he. Gentle but with character, got something special. That makes this Porter unique. Top Class. fiulijn (21471) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2003

Black color, creamy head. The aroma doesn’t impress me too much, because it tends to show too much burnt paper and bad coffee, but somehow there is a familiar Danish touch too. The flavor is much better, mostly due to a very good body strength, with strong black malt first of all, then caramel and some dry liquorice too. The final gets slightly sweeter and the liquorice balances more the black malt. I’m not too excited by "coffee" beers, but indeed it’s a good one.

Black color, thick head. Good aroma of roasted malt, nutty, but also some cardboard. Good body strength, strong roasted malt flavor and chocolate, hidden but good malt. Somehow a very interesting mix. Strong ending bitterness, with burnt sugar too. Very good.

Dark color, creamy dark head. Nose of coffee, cardboard, roasted malt. Full body, strong mouthfeel without being alcoholic. Good malt and roasted malt, lightly smokey.
Black with brown head. Sigmund (7969) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2002
Smoked aroma with salami tones.
Chocolate and coffee flavor with bitterness.
UPDATED: APR 27, 2003 A heavy mouthful from one of Denmark's few independent regional breweries, which I'm always happy to support every summer. A nice region with nice people who make several acceptable beers - this is their very best one. However, I have to admit that Gamle Carlsberg Imperial Stout Porter is slightly better. Rerate: Characterized as a 'double brown stout' by the brewery, this stout/porter (in Denmark that's more or less the same thing) is really so different from Gamle Carlsberg Imperial Stout Porter that it's a bit unfair to compare the two. The smoked flavour is really something out of the ordinary. I've never had a rauchbier (*I have now!), but I guess this one has some elements in common with that style (* smoky, but not smoked meat, T.G.). I highly recommend a sample of Limfjords-Porter! Rerate 2: Hey, this beer grows on you! Black (okay, extremely dark brown) as the deadliest of sins, moderate thick tan head, aroma and flavour of tar, resin and midsummer bonfires. Overwhelming smoked bitterness. Tastes like it's been stored in a Viking ship through seven battles and a round-the-world tour. Simply outstanding.
