Thick dark malty, roasted, chocolate and more pronounced coffee. Light fruity smooth touch. Rich dense malty and creamy finish, alcohol presence but otherwise very nicely balanced.

Ungstrup (29107) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2011

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Pours thick and syrupy pitch black with a massive 2 inch light brown head with a lengthy retention - probably one of the best looking beers I’ve had for a long while. Sweetish chocolate aroma combined with licorice overpowers the roastiness in the nose yet maintains a certain freshness. Solid body, incredibly velvety smooth mouthfeel. Again the roast is downplayed leaving room for sweet chocolate, vanilla, raisins in rum and then also some lovely aromatic hops that prevents this from ever getting cloying in spite of a low bitterness. Incredibly smooth and well balanced. 130212

Bottle from Olbutikken. Opaque black beer with a thick dark tan head. Soft viscous palate. Semi dry. Smooth rich dark malt. A whisper of roast. Traces of coffee and licorice. Mild lacto glues it all together. Finishes soft and smooth and dry. Licorice and coffee linger on. Nice porter - soft and drinkable.

Bottle from Havnens Vin & Tobakhus, Vejle
Black color with brown creamy head. Roasted malt aroma, and coffee, initially; with semi-pungent spices (maybe ginger and cinnamon), followed by some cardboard; clumsy, it feels like 7-eleven while waiting for the train in the night. Good body strength; the flavor is a very good mix of dark chocolate and roasted malt, with a good share of liquorice, while the spices are fairly covered, therefore less evident and more pleasant, although some cinnamon tries to stick out; good balance.
Very good, but I’m not excited by this usage of spices.
