Ungstrup (29484) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 17, 2005
A pitch black beer with a small brown head. The aroma is very fruity and also contains notes of prunes. The flavor is sweet with notes of prune pudding, chocolate, and roasted bread. The end is dry.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2007
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a hazy, dark brown with an orange glow and a small, beige head. Some smokiness in the nose. Rather full-bodied with sweetish, roasted malt and a whiff of peaty smoke and some coffee accents. The bitterness is discreet. Pleasant. 030807

omhper (19670) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2006
Bottled. Clear dark brown. Strong cocoa aroma. Dryish and fairly soft with some tobacco and chocolate. Medium bodied. Diminated by intense cocoa flavour all the way through to the tarry finish. Interesting and tasty, although perhaps not very complex.

Dedollewaitor (14040) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2007
Again heavy stuff from Alcazar: Bottle: Pitch black with a bubbly fast disappearing head. Sweet vinous, roas, liquirice, coffee. Soft mouthfeel - though body is very thin. Sweet , sugary/vinous. Tasty for a 6% porter!

harrisoni (13856) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2005
500ml bottle. Black beer with thick frothy dark beige head. Plenty of dark roasted malts, even a bit of toffee. Dark choc/coffee. Quite smooth in mouth, bit of sour liquorice, but a well balanced beer and the best of the bottled Alcazar beers I’ve had. Dark roasted raisins too on the flavour

yngwie (13700) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle. It pours a clear, brown body and a minimal sized light beige head. Some oxidation on the nose, with coffee and some chocolate. Smooth on the palate, medium to full body and a flavor of chocolate and coffee, quite a lot of coffee actually. A pleasant, tasteful and easy drinkable beer, especially the coffee flavor is nice. 111105
