COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The intense flavors of dark-roasted malt in our rendition of the classic English porter are perfectly balanced by a generous and complex hop character. Bully! Porter’s robust nature makes it the ideal companion to a variety of foods, from seafood to chocolate.

Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 24, 2006
An opaque brown beer with a huge brown head. The aroma is very sweet and lovely roasted, but also with hints of alcohol. The flavor is very roasted giving it a very dry mouthfeel right from the beginning, but it also contains light spicy notes and hints of cellery. The end is dry and roasted. Quite nice. Thanks Papsø for sharing.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2006
(On tap) Black and completely opaque beer with a creamy, beige head leaving some neat laces. Fat, rich, malty nose. Medium body with plenty of hard roasted - but not burnt - malt. Notes of chocolate and a dry, pleasant but not overwhelmingly bitter finish. A great, light porter. 210306

omhper (19374) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2005
Bottled, thanks beerhandy!Very dark brown, average head. Appley coffee aroma. Dryish and medium bodied, very fruity for a porter. The mouthfeel is light and somewhat fizzy and the finish salty. My least favourite from an otherwise solid brewer.

yngwie (13558) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2013
Bottle. It pours a clear-looking reddish dark brown body under a dense, finger-thick light beige head that lasts for a while and leaves nice lacings. The aroma has that lovely blend of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate, mixed with a vague touch of dried fruits, caramel and malty sourness. Licorice too maybe. It’s full-bodied and soft on the palate, and a tad too much carbonated I think. There’s a pleasant hoppy bitterness and notes of piney hops in the flavor, with roasted malts, coffee, chocolated and sweetness. Still, it feels rather dry on the palate. Some pleasant sourish hints towards the bitter and roasted finish. Certainly a beer I’ll buy more of, it’s tasteful and pleasant, and dangerously easy drinkable. 130326

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 9, 2003
Very large head, rocky and with sizeable bubbles. Burgundy-tinged dark brown colour. The aroma shows a black malt acidity, the cookie part of an Oreo, and hints of coffee. Dark malt bitterness pervades on the palate, with cocoa, almond shell, and a touch of flowery hop far in the background. Slightly tart in the finish. Thin body overall. I can see the popularity of this beer - it shares many traits with the great one (St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout) - the bitterness, strong dark malt character...but it is neither as complex, nor rounded, nor full of body as the great one. It is decent, but definitely Tier Two or Three.
