COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark unfiltered brew is medium-bodied with a deep roasted malt aroma. The molasses and licorice in this brew are authentic to American porters of the colonial era, as is the more assertive hop finish.

12 fl oz. Pours deep brown with light orange/red hue and a light brown head. Aroma is slight roasted and with a dried fruity note. Liqourice flavoured, dry with bitterhops breaking the liqourice heavy flavour. Dry finish.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2006
A dark red-brown beer with a thick brown head. The aroma is sweet with light roasted notes. The flavor is sweet and very roasted as well as malty, but also with a acidity from the roasted malt is lingering in the background. I find it boring - it needs more punch.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Pours a slightly hazy light brown with an orange hue and a dense, creamy, beige head. Distinct aroma of roasted malt and licorice. Medium body with burned and slightly ashy malt notes and again these very distinct licorice flavours - almost salty - before a fairly bitter finish. 180807

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2008 Bottled. Dark brown, rich h ead. Aroma of cocoa and licoirce. Sweet with burnt malt and plenty of salty licorice. Boldly malty with some molasses. Salty licorice domiante the finish. A bit brash, but interesting.

BBE Oct 06. Opaque dark brown beer. Crisp palate. Lots of bitter toffee and molasses and unsweet licorice. Finishes crisp with some carbonated bite and more unsweet licorice. Another unusual beer in the Patriot collection. Very drinkable and rich.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2008
Bottle, 10 months past BB date. Very phenolic aroma. Very dark brown colour with a red shine. Very small light brown head. The flavour is also very phenolic and has lots of raw liquorice. Late liquorice aftertaste. I seem to be alone in tasting the phenol, but it is nevertheless horrible to me.

(12oz bottle) Clear red-black body with creamy tan head. Aroma is medium sweet, chocolate (milk, light bittersweet), roast. Taste is medium sweet, chocolate, roast, some earthy, lactic sourness. Creamy medium body.

bhensonb (11528) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 16, 2006
Smoky aroma, more hints of chocolate than anything else. Dark brown color, hints of red in strong light, tiny bubbles. Tan head which persissts. Definite licorice/anise in the start. It lingers, but some bitter comes forth to finish. Maybe some herbs. Don’t know what happened to the hints of chocolate.

Bottle. Poured dark brown with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Light caramel roasted malt aroma. Medium body. Medium sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of short duration.
