COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional black porter, with a surprise twist - it's dry-hopped!! We've expanded the porter category a bit, adding a delightful, dry hop aroma to blend with the sweet caramel and chocolate characteristics of a Robust Porter.

12 fl oz bottle at Ølbaren. Pours dark brown with dense chocolate brown head. Roasted malt aroma, hints of choolate and a vague chalk note. Flavour is roasted malt, smooth chocolate and a very light acidity. Ends roasted malty and slight acidic. Lovely flavourful and yet uncomplicated.

Ungstrup (29286) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2006
A very dark brown beer with a slight red shine under a fluffy brown head. The aroma is lovely both hoppy and roasted malty, the hops giving it notes of citrus, and the roasted malt giving it notes of coffee and a bit of chocolate. The flavor is sweet malty with quite strong roasted notes, but in a very smooth way, opposite many porters more dry roastiness. The flavor also contains notes of good coffe and chocolate, as well as a bit of citrusy from the hops. The end is very smooth but also OK bitter, with the citrus and chocolate lingering for a long time. The body is quite light (especially considering the alcohol content), but in the aftertaste the alcohol bites slightly in the tongue and cheeks. Nice one.

Bottled. Dark ruby red colour, mediumsized foamy beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate and malts. Flavour is coffee, malts and chocolate. Not too much roast in it, which is a bit sad. Otherwise very nice.
