A fusion of coffee, chocolate, and smoke make this one a brew to savor. Another nice offering from a brewer that, for my money, is one of the best.

Ungstrup (30937) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2004
A clear brown beer with a huge light brown head. The aroma is dominated by chocolate and coffee and is quite sweet. The flavor is sweet with notes of chocolate and roasted malt. A very delicious beer.

12 oz bottle. 52 degrees. Black with a red tint. MIlk chocolate, fruity nose. The taste was the same as the nose except with more coffee, roasted oats. Dryish coffee finish. Good mouthfeel.

Nearly opaque deep brown pour, medium light brown head. Light sweet malt aroma. Some finishing hops? Not much going on in the aroma, somewhat bland. Flavor is light as well... a little roasty malt, a little coffee, and some light bittering hops. A little lacking in flavor. Medium mouthfeel, very very short aftertaste, a little sweet. I must say, weak, but very drinkable...I could drink this all day.

Had this on tap at the Horseshoe Pub in Hudson. Has a very dark brown color with a small brownish head. Smell is is of roasted malts. Taste is of roasted/chocolate malts, nuts and finishes slightly bitter. Overall a fine porter.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Big tannish frothy head. Pale malty somewhat roasted aroma. Sweet malty flavor, a little in the mouthfeel. Bitter chocolate dominates yet has a zesty hop bite. Not an overbearing porter, still thirst quenching and tasty.

ambroze (22) - Old Hickory, Tennessee, USA - NOV 30, 2004
hico county’s version of a porter. This one is smooth, a bit roasted, but without the common nutty flavor found in many porters. Not too malty. Nothing dominates or jumps out as acutely deScriptive of this one.
