Ungstrup (29019) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2007
Bottled. A dark brown beer with a brown head. The arom ais sweet with very strong notes of chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, chocolate, and roasted malt, that lends it a bit of acidity, as well as light notes of coffee, leading to a dry and bitter finish.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2007
Very dark brown. Rich dark chocolate, molasses, malt aroma. Soft, yet chewy malt character with dark chocolate notes. Lots of roast. Slightly watery finish tempers this.

thewolf (11099) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2007
Bottle. Pours a reddish black with a firm off-white head. Aroma has plenty of milky chocolate and a good dose of rye. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin, only letting a medium of chocolate flavours come through.

Lubiere (9731) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2007
A deep dark porter with a thick moka head. A aroma of freshly ground coffee bean and bitter chocolate, wonderful. In mouth, a dry bitter chocolate with coffee grinds, light aicidity points, with a rich sustained bitterness. Wow! Thanks to Pintbypint for this one.

Dark chocalate with white head, and chocolate in aroma. Middling mouthfeel, bittersweet taste with drying finish. Quite good porter.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Bottle, Porter #100, extra special thanks to CapFlu for sending this my way! The aroma was a sweet and darker blend of very wonderful chocolate.. roasted barley and some mild herbal notes... mild-to-heavily roasted and really enjoyable! The flavor had a great blend of drier, semi-sweet chocolates with darker, even more roasted chocolate... dry grassy bitterness and some coffee-type bitterness.. very xhocolatey, and very tasty! About medium-bodied and roasty.. flowed very well! Left a very long, well-roasted finish. Great stuff!
