Ungstrup (29332) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2004
A dark amber beer with a fine beige head though disappearing. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and straw. The flavor is sweet too with notes of cinnamon, caramel - to end on a slight sour note. It is way too sweet for a Porter - even though it holds 9.4% ABV. Thanks to Per (omhper) for trading this with me.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 23, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Very dark, almost black with a light brown head from the dark malts. Very sweet (sweetened?) almost vinous in the direction of portwine. Somehow reminds me of dark Trappists (yes, really...) just not quite as complex in the flavour pattern. Not much bitterness. For a beer this strong it goes down scaringly easy, you don’t really sense the alcohol. A pleasant surprise. 110704

joergen (20807) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2005
Bottled. Dark brown coloured with a small beige head. Aroma of dish washer, liquorice and chocolate. Flavour of dried fruits, chocolate and liquorice. Well hidden alcohol.

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2007 Bottled. Black opaque colour, brown foamy head. Chocolate and toffee in aroma along with roasted malt. Flavour is very roasted and bitter with hints of dark chocolate. Smoothens up a lot as it gets warmer. Some weird sweet flavour is also present.

omhper (19378) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2013 Bottled, Best Before 2004. Very dark brown, minimal head. Slight raisin and madeira up front. Mid sweet with medium body and soft mouthfeel. Caramelly with signs of oxidation, but in a madeira-like very pleasant way. The initial sweetness has dried out and now it drinks very well. Low bitterness. Glad I saved a few bottles of this!
Old rating from 2003 - Bottled. Dark mahogany. Fruity licorice aroma. Syrupy mouthfeel, some coffee, very rich and warming with sugary finish. (7/4/6/3/13)

anders37 (16697) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours a black color with a small tan head. Has a fruity malty dark fruit and chocolate aroma. Sweetish malty fruity sugary dark fruit flavor with some hints of chocolate. Has a very sweet malty chocolate finish.

Roasty and sour, some vinegar. It went off.

Malty and with a soft liquorice line; some sweetness. Pleasant but not enough bitter.

Dark amber color. Light malt, malt and vegetables aroma. Sweet; caramel, nuts. Average, for the common drinker. Thanks Jens (Ungstrup) for this bottle.

cgarvieuk (14287) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 12, 2008
Bottle at home ... that to Pat for this ... Deep deep brown little red tinge ... good soft roast no bitter malt nose ... over fizzy .... good chocolate ... lots of roast malts ... A decent Porter all in all this is a solid pint.

harrisoni (13733) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottle at GBBF 2006. I hadn’t realised the strength of this. Very deep ruby colour with some nice raisins and a bit of caramel. Bit milky. Amazing dark dried fruit in the mouth. Prunes, raisins, currants. Smooth and rather lovely. Some burntness. Rich. Like Christmas cake.

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2006
Bottle. Sweet liquorice aroma. Almost black colour. Very small head. Quite sweet flavour, a lot of liquorice here too. Low bitterness. Maybe a bit too sweet, but quite nice.
