COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available brewery conditioned and cold filtered in 500ml bottles.
Hops: Challenger and Goldings.
This fine beer is a blend of a mature old ale with a younger light beer - just as a true Porter should be. The marriage produces an extremely characterful brew which is dark in colour and complex in taste.

Ungstrup (29332) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2004
A red brown beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted bread and so is the flavor combined with notes of malt. A fine beer, but nothing special.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Pitch black with a reddish hue. Handsome, creamy head that sticks to my glass. Distinct notes of burned malts, coffee and bitter chocolate - all the right characteristics for a good porter. Dry, fairly light-bodied and very drinkable. An aromatic and pleasant porter. 181201
