Black colour, with a huge brown head. Smoke, chocolate, roast in the aroma. The flavour is mildly smoked and smoothe. Covers the alcahol well. Notes of chocolate in the flavour as well, and then a heavy and delicious bitter/smoky/chocolatish aftertaste. Lovely beer. Ungstrup (38413) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2002
A black beer with a nice brown head. The aroma nice and that of smoked malt. The flavor is soft and dominated by the smoked malt. A really nice beer for a late evening. mwesth (279) - Skovlunde, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2004 This is a beer that requires some training.
Very full, with licorice, coffee, smoke in both nose and flavour. Looong aftertaste... First time I had it I rated it 3,1, I guess it grows on you. pilsnerrogge (2997) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2002
Very roasted, very bitter. One bottle off this is almost too much!.......... Mads Langtved (2240) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2006 3 different heads on top of easc other. Very roasted and a bit smoked. Bitter finish. Quite powerful and fullbodied. A great porter.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2003 Full bodied and rich in flavour. The smoked malt gives this beer its remarkable aftertaste. It is different from the other Danish porters. It is especially good on tap. jonas (8035) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2002
The dark smoked flavour makes this beer really special. Burned and licorice flavors and a thick mouthfeel invite to enjoy it slowly. omhper (25742) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2003 Dark black, maybe because off the artificial colouring stated on the label. Big, malty body. Smoke and coffee in the palate. Rather sweet. A good beer, interesting beer. (6/4/8/3/15)HansJM (358) - NORWAY - NOV 29, 2001
However like most Baltic porters this is ment for keeping and will improve significantly with time. Thanks to the brewmaster who let me sample some of the 1988 version at the Danish beer festival I relaized how good this ber can become. The aroma was full of sweet licorice, chocoalte and coffee. It was sweet, complex, rounded and mature. perhaps the tobacco flavoured I sensed came from the brewmaster smoking pipe. The finish was mild and velvetty.
Almost violent start. It's BIG and strong. Burned, coffeish notes.Very good. Pitz99 (5) - DENMARK - APR 12, 2001 does not count
