Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 21, 2006
A lactose-sweet porter with a milky mouthfeel. I guess it went well enough with the chocolate undertones. Not sure it was robust enough to be a porter but I can’t readily classify it otherwise.

Sofajoern (146) - DENMARK - APR 9, 2006
Looks better than it tastes. Deep red brown colourwith a good looking head, that never quite disappeared. Slightly bitter and smoked aroma. Taste is fairly dull dark malts with hardly any finish or aftertaste. So so effort.

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2005
Bottled (BB 02/2006)
Very dark brown, huge cloudy brown head, lace. Roasted, milk chocolaty aroma. Chocolaty, woody, slightly metallic flavor. Sweetish stout/porter. Malty profile is ok, needs more hops to balance.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2004
Chocolat roasted aroma with light spices. Dark brown color, almost black, light brown creamy head, good lace. Bitter start, light sweet, roasted, coffee, long lasting bitter roasted finish, little yeast, fruity, medium body, little dry. Reading the other reviews maybe the brewer changed it’s recipe because I loved it.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2004
An amber beer with sediment floating around and a beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of oranges. The flavor is sour with notes of chocolate and the body is thin. This is not a porter and the flavor is not pleasant.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2004
Amber/orange colored beer with a foamy off-white head. Doesn’t look like a porter at all! Thin and weak aroma, some grass and malt tones and a slight bitterness. Also thin in the flavor. Sweet with weak tones of coffee and chocolate. Ok taste, but waaaay to thin and weak for a porter!

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2004
Light reddish brown coloured with sediment. Weak aroma with fruity notes. Unpleasant flavour with lots of yeast flavour and not much else. Thin and watery.

SilkTork (5216) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2004
Bottle Conditioned. BBE May 2005. Good wine and coffee & chocolate flavours, somewhat spoiled by the harsh carbonation even two hours after opening.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2004
Amber color; creamy head. Delicate aroma, dominated by the vanilla. Quite good malty taste, with strong caramel character and decent hopping. Probably not a Porter, but the most enjoyable of this series of 3 Duimpje’s.

dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2004
Nice deep dark almost black color. They used very well prepared chocolate malts, because there is no burned taste at all. Well balanced easy drinking beer. Until now the best porter beer of the Netherlands(2004)
