I paired this beer with: Nothing today.
Tasted on: Thursday September 23rd, 2010
Note: This beer poured a very dark brown almost black with a thin dark tan head which dissipated very quickly. The nose was sweet & smoky with hints of dark cocoa and coffee. The taste was coffee, dark chocolate, smoke, molasses and brown sugar, but not too sweet as it finished with some bitterness. The mouthfeel was smooth, creamy & with a medium to full body. The drinkability was excellent and leaves you wanting more.
Look it even comes in a can too:
On the Label: Ølfabrikken (The Beer Factory) is an experimental brewery on the vibrant Danish beer scene. oUr beers are unpasteurized and unfiltered, and are naturally carbonated (without added CO2) for maximum flavor, aroma, and mouth feel.
Our Porter is inspired by the weighty Baltic porters common in Scandinavia. The taste is slightly smoky, with vinous notes from brown sugar, leading to a long, rich finish dominated by chocolate, licorice, and coffee flavors from our special blend of roasted malts. Enjoy at 50-55° F in a tulip or tumbler glass.
From their website: Ølfabrikken Porter (7,5 %)
A dark and rich porter inspired by the Baltic porters traditionally made in Scandinavia. Roasted without being burned or bitter, with the flavor dominated by dried fruits and vinous notes. High amounts of residual sugars and a fruity aroma makes this beer the perfect companion for chocolate desserts, if served lightly chilled. Brewed on Maris Otter ale malt, British Brown Malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, two types of caramel malt and brown sugar.
Was in 2006 awarded Beer News of the Year (by Danish Beer Enthusiast) and Best Porter in the world (at Ratebeer.com)
