Bottle. A very dark brown, almost the color of dark chocolate. Decent light brown head, foamy with some larger bubbles mixed in. Very dry in the mouth and roasty taste. Finish is dry, leaving the mouth pleasantly coated with the nice roasted taste. As the beer gets warmer more hints of dark chocolate, but the beer never gets bitter.

Ungstrup (34362) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2003
A black beer with a beutiful brown head. The aroma is smoked and of roasted malt. The flavor is very smokey though mild and sweet - ending in a good bitterness. And with a great palate. All in all a great porter.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2005
(Bottle 55 cl) Very dark brown with a handsome, creamy head. Full-bodied and rather dry with some almost smoked notes from the roasted malt. But quite pleasant drinking and not heavy in any way. 050303

Opaque black beer with a good pale cream coloured head. Palate is crisp and a little dry. Very mild dark malts, no roast or bitterness. A mild fruity tang and lots of lactose. Finishes semi dry. A pretty milky porter! Okay.
