COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: En stor og kraftig Porter med en umiskendelig og lækker kaffearoma. En blød og lækker øl, selvom den med sine knap 10 % er en kraftig herre. Både Cascade og Simcoe skinner fint igennem de ristede elementer og blander sig dejligt med den ristede aroma og kaffen.

English: It’s a beer that’s been thought about for quite some time – actually since the brewers first visit to Sherbrooke Liquor in Edmonton, AB, Canada a few years back, and finally I did it – I manned up and did it! After a whole freaking day of brewing coffee for this beer I can truly say it is Craft. If not devoted to the product who in their right mind would brew hundreds of litres of coffee for a beer? The result is a big and bold smooth Porter with discrete vanilla and coffee notes.
Hops: Magnum, Nelson Sauvin Malts: Pilsner, Caramel, Rye, Oats, Chocolate, Black, Vanilla and coffee.

visionthing (5413) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 1, 2013
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet, Valkendorfsgate. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and vanilla with notes of dark chocolate, dark fruits, hops and citrus. Sweet and roasty with nice coffee flavour and a well balanced bitterness. Full bodied and quite smooth with well integrated alcohol. Tasty, flavourful and surprisingly nice. I’m not a huge fan of vanilla in beer (except Southern Tier’s Creme Brulee Stout) but it’s well integrated and fits quite well with the other flavours. Nice!

LicoriceKing (48) - DENMARK - APR 25, 2013
Bottle. Black with a tan head. Aroma: Chocolate, pretty fruity, sweet, coffee not noticeable. Taste: Chocolate, coffee, licorice and roasty. The taste is way more bitter than the aroma. The palate is pretty smooth. I don’t get any notes of alcohol. It’s extremely drinkable for it’s strength. Great beer and pretty affordable. I imagine it would go well with desserts..

Rune (13002) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 24, 2013
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet bestillingsutvalget (nettbutikk). Huge, bubbly fawn-coloured head with a solid stand, leaving artwork to the glassware. Body is just as dark as black coffee. Very good looking, indeed. Aroma of coffee, burnt sugar and vanilla chocolate. Coffee to the fore followed by the taste of dark vanilla, and a gentle touch of roasted, dark malts. Bitter coffee grounds to the finish. Velvety mouthfeel. Nice sipper on a Saturday eve (Tromsø, 20.04.2013).

Skvader (151) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2013
The aroma is not particularly interesting, even a bit rough like mud. But the taste is interesting, clear presence of vanilla and a good ammount of acid. The texture is smooth and the enduring thin layer of foam is a plus

yngwie (17078) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2013 Bottle. A black one, topped by a small, dense, finger-thick tan head. The aroma has coffee and some vanilla, chocolate and then even more coffee. The same goes for th flavor, it’s coffee that runs the show, helped by some sweetness and notes of vanilla and chocolate. Soft on the palate, with a tad too much carbonation. Overall, very, very nice, although a bit one dimensional. Rating: 7-5-8-4-16-4.0. 121116

Bottle. A more or less black one, with a reddish hue, topped by a dense, dark beige head of two-finger head. Nice lacings. The aroma has coffee, some vanilla, a touch of coffee and some chocolate. Some alcohol notes. It’s super soft on the palate, semi-sweet, nice carbonation. Coffee, chocolate and some vanilla in the flavor. Sure nice, but not extra ordinary. 130327

tfredvik (1985) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2013
Pours a deep brown body with a small, creamy to frothy, medium brown head that laces the glass well. The aroma is strong and pleasant, although not very complex: this is mainly strong coffee and roasted notes. Also some light yeast in the back. I actually don’t get any vanilla. The taste is moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Strong roasted flavours of coffee, and the beer opens up somewhat as the temperature increases, and reveals vague hints of vanilla and fruits. Full bodied, creamy and smooth texture, soft carbonation, well hidden alcohol. A nice one.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 16 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Online]
