look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: The color is almost black, the head is mocca brown, extremely tall and compact. Dissipation takes forever and the lacings are rich.

S: Hard roasted dark malts, almost a bit smoked. Notes of vanilla - oak?. Chocolate and strong black coffee. The licorice is very faint.

T: Rich sweet malt with loads of licorice. Hard roasted, a bit smoke and also some vanilla. Molasses. Strong black coffee. Bitterness.

M: Long bitter smokey aftertaste. Body is full, while carbonation is kept low.

O: A nice American Porter with the hard roasted malts. The licorice was modest in smell but strong in taste - that made this beer a bit syrupy - not bad.

The colour is dark brown (55 EBC), the liquid clear. The gigantic head is compact and pale brown; it sinks very slowly leaving some lacing on the glass. The beer is bottle conditioned.

Sour malty roasted flavours dominate the smell. Hints of alcohol, sweet candy and light touches of smoke and alcohol. The smell is very robust and quite strong.

The taste is robust and malty with roasted malts (including some sour notes) but then there is a not-that-sweet round liquorice note in the background that makes this beer a little special. Some alcohol and a mild balancing bitterness. The beer is full bodied. The aftertaste got a growing bitter flavour as well as a dry, roasted note and a delicate liquorice flavour that adds just a hint of sweetness. The finish reminds of fine English sweet liquorice.

The carbonation is medium to strong; the bubbles are large and a little tickling in the mouth. The liquid is semi-smooth.

An interesting take on the porter style, but I think the base beer was a bit too raw for the liquorice flavours.

My first beer review so I thought it fitting to combine it with the first review of this interesting danish porter.

Appearance: Pours up into a really dark brown almost black beer with a dark brownish head.

Smell: A nice sweet aroma of roasted malt with a slight hint of liquorice in it.

Taste: At first a nice rich taste of roasted malt as a good porter in my opinion should have. The malty taste grows into a rich sweet liquorice taste and and finishes off with a bitter sweet liquorice taste. Just a hint of alcohol that

Overall a nice porter in small quantities, the amount of liquorice is just about right. Much more and the liquorice would overwhelm that lovely roasted malt and be a bit too much. An interesting porter that is well worth trying.
