DraftDodger (1303) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2016
Copenhagen 27/7 2016. 50 cl bottle from Fakta. Ancient rendering of Brewers doing their thing with huge barrel. Pours opaque dark brown with big beige head. Settles as fat creamy layer of foam. Thick lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee and alcohol. Soft carbonation and creamy oily palate. Flavor is pronounced sweet and slightly roasted. Followed by medium bitterness. In the better league of the Willemoes brand.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2016

500 ml bottle at abv 8.5% bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Looks: Clear deep blackish brown colour with a thin trace of yeast sediments; One and a half finger head with crumpety beige foam which lasts for 2 minutes. Poor sticky lacing and zero carbonation.

Aroma: Fragrant and sweet dark malt, with roasted coffee, strong caramel, toffee, chocolate, plum, light cream, liquorices, strong sugar, yeast and light grass.

Taste: Very strong sweet dark malt, with moderate roastyness, strong caramel, toffee, black coffee, light dark chocolate, cola, strong alcohol, strong liquorices, floral, strong sugar, light earth, yeast, lemon, strong bitter hops and strong grass.

Body: Mid to light body. Slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Solid dark maltyness in a fairly thick background. Fairly good roast but pretty much overwhelmed by strong alcohol, sugar and lots of liquorices bitterness. Good black coffee, caramel, toffee and some dark chocolate. Strong lemon to round. Very strong indeed!

Booze: The 8.5% alcohol if fueled by strong liquorices and come out strongly with just the first few sips. Feels like its 9% or more. Yet its not too warm and the liquorices makes it agreeable. Just okay.

Hoppiness: Light grass in nose. Floral, earth, lemon and strong grass in taste; Bitterness - hops and liquorices - is very sharp and strong for a lasting, very high astringent sweet malty finish.

After Taste: Quite dry. Very sweet, boozy and strong bitter to mouth.

Comments: This is a fully pump-up Baltic Porter, strong in every aspect without being sophisticated. The added liquorices makes the strong sweetness and booze palatable, yet the buried nice coffee and dark maltyness feel wasted. Less gonzo and wacky could go a long way. Still pretty drinkable for the style.

Strk smag af kaffe. En stor smag af lakrids i eftersmagen. Der er ogs lidt spritet over den.

ALIBALI (1430) - Kiel, GERMANY - APR 7, 2016
Tolle Optik (ein wenig dunkelrot im schwarz). Ein sehr angenehmer Duft macht Lust auf den ersten Schluck. Dieser ist dann von Beginn an sehr schlank und immer komplex. Mal rstig frisch, dann wieder sherrylastig und manchmal auch nur ein tolles Porter. Fett. 0,5l Flasche aus Padborg, ca. 3 Euro.

Quite a good beer. The taste is quite strong with roasty and sweet flavours. Appears a bit better when a bit warmer.
