Aroma is light to moderate malty, roasted, mocca, moderate hoppy, citrus. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat.

Ungstrup (29286) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2006 A dark brown beer with a red shine, with a beige colored head, looking something like rising bread. The aroma is sweet with strong fruit notes as well as notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with a light roasted note, that gives the beer a dryness which mixes in with notes of chocolate. I find it very light for a Porter (though not out of style), so I’m a bit disappointed in it taking the style and brewery into account.

I had Redhook Nitrogen Porter, I think at R.F.D. in DC - I guess it is the same beer just on nitro. I gave it one less in appearance and one less overall - and only deviation in my notes is a comparison to Guinness.

Cask@GBBF2007. Dark amber colour, small bronish head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, burnt wet wood and some slight caramel. Flavour is coffee, some dark fruits and slightly yeasty. Also some slight roasted malts to be foiund. Pleasant, but quite watery palate.

cgarvieuk (14287) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 14, 2007
Cask GBBF ... Black but not solid ... sweet malt little hop nose ... watery for a stout ... rich caramel malts ... soft and gentle.

harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2007
Cask gravity at GBBF 2007. Black, virtually no head. Yes it’s got choc, but it’s a fairly unremarkable USA porter. Lacks intensity, except on a tingly finish. Not great.

Typical Redhook. Not bad, but not great.

bu11zeye (11942) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2006
(Bottle) Pours a dark brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and cocoa. Flavor is reminiscent of an English porter with rye, roasted malt, mild hops, and chocolate.
