COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With more substance and roast than our Nut Brown, this creamy porter is nitro-poured and has nice hints of coffee and dark chocolate. This ale is smooooooth and so very drinkable!

On tap @ SDBC: Poured a dark tan brown with a thin creamy layer of head. The aroma was tame yet had a presence of roasted down malts. Flavor is rich and is pure chocolate milk with a sweet base of lightly roasted malts in the background. Extremely smooth palate and my girlfriend almost started drinking it with a straw.

Draught Good beige head, very resistent over black beer. Black chocolate, tobaccoash, mocha, roasted malts. Sweet, very sweet chocolate, touch of mocha/coffee. Finish has bitter/roasted coffee notes, better. Well-bodied, slick to viscous. Long sticky aftertaste. Too sweet. Could easily be bettered by a bit more fermenting out/lagering, IMO.

On tap at SD Brew Co. I’m likin’ this one a lot. Dark brown to black with tan nitro head. Nose is rich with roast malt and oats. Flavor is thick malty and smooth creamy. Got a hint of peanut butter mixed in with the creamy cocoa. Yummy brew!

On tap at Newport Alehouse. Pours a deep chocolate brown with a thin head. Nose is creamy malts and bakers chocolate. Flavors enter with mild roasted malt. The chocolate flavors build slowly through the beer and build to a decent chocolate milk flavor and texture. Creamy mouth. Nice little porter.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2009
On tap. Pours a very dark brown - almost black - with a vague reddish hue and a creamy beige head. Intense chocolate aroma combined with the toasted malts. Quite a solid body, lots of chocolate, roasted malt and a coffee bitterness that comes late and balances the chocolate sweetness quite well. Some malt bitterness in the finish, that also holds some alcohol. 070709

From tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown to fully black with a small tan head. Aroma is dark roasted malt and mild acidic dark chocolate. Sweet chocolate flavoured, light roasted and vague toffee like. Light acidic and roasted malt flavoured finish. Nice lasting chocolate note into the far finish.
