Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2010
Draft. A brown beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of sweet and roasted malt combined with cocoa. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of cocoa, roasted malt, and caramel.

Nickls (1809) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - JUN 25, 2010
(Old BA rate - tap) Poured with a half-finger of darker tan, frothy head; Deep, dense black color. Alcohol show up first and is a little oppressive; woody; dark bittersweet chocolate in the aroma. Wood; earthy; warming alcohol in the taste isn’t as overwhelming as in the aroma; vanilla and bourbon notes. Thicker and pretty full; lush; nice carbonation level to spark it up a bit. Nice layers

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 19, 2010
On tap at Pap. Dark brown pour with a creamy head. Lots of good stuff in there, including dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt and vanilla. Slightly sweet and highly tasty!

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2010
Deep brown-black pour. Thick tan head. The nose is fairly nice. Soft cocoa aroma with a kiss of toasted maltiness in addition to a touch of booziness. It’s boozy and a little bit sweet. The cocoa is there more in the nose than in the flavour. It’s kind of non-descript and I prefer the regular version.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - DEC 25, 2009
sampled side by side with the regular version 11/12/2009 on tap at papago. same black appearance with sheets of foamy off white lace. this one seems to lack the abundance of sour cream apparent on the nose in the regular porter. it shows more roast, notes of coffee, brown sugar, wood, vanilla and cocoa. the tartness on the palate is much more refined while the flavor seems more well rounded. the taste reminds me a lot of nice coffee thickened with cream... flavors of butterscotch cream, mild wood, cocoa, toasted nuts, loads of coffee (especially in the aftertaste), a touch of sourness and a dry crisp finish. it is medium bodied but richer and more lux than the other... 7/4/7/4/16/3.8

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Growler acquired from Papago. Really enjoyed this one. Dark leather pour results in a 2-finger latte head that left a decent amount of lacing. Aroma and flavor are all cocoa powder, roasted coffee, vanilla, dark chocolate, brown sugar, caramel, and toffee...a lot going on. Pretty complex and the creamy mouthfeel enhances this one. Nicely done porter.

Draft. Blackish beer with a tan head. Chocolate aroma. Sweet, smooth chocolate flavor with malt backing. Medium bodied. Sweet chocolate and malt lingers. Nice.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Sampled during RBSG 7/10/2009 on tap at the brewery. This porter pours a dark black color from the tap. Medium to small sized beige foamy head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, vanilla beans and a touch of oak. A medium to full bodied porter. The malts are chocolate and coffee, with some roasted malt. The hops are earthy and floral. Strong chocolate and coffee flavors in this one. There is a hint of wood as well. Nice balance. Good Carbonation. I kind of wish the body was a little fuller. Hides the alcohol well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter chocolate.
