Ungstrup (29604) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2005 A very dark brown beer - though not opaque, with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted with notes of caramel as well as slightly burnt notes. The flavor is sweet roasted with light notes of chocolate and coffee as well as slight hints of soy sauce, and a dry end. For a Porter the body is thin.

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 14, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2007 (Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of pineypower. Dark brown with a warm, reddish hue and a creamy beige head that leaves a pretty lacework. Sweet aroma of roasted malt and prunes? Medium body with sweet, roasted malts, licorice, some dried fruit - prunes in particular - and absolutely no bitterness. Nice. Perhaps more of a Baltic Porter really. 060407 and 070907
