Bottled. Black colour, mediumsized brown bubblyish foamy head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, smoke and some hops. Flavour is roasted malts, coffee, some slight chocolate and some caramel. Some slight bittering hops in finish. Hoppy and roasted aftertaste. Smooth and pleasant.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2007 (Bottle 35,5 cl) Dark as a Porter is supposed to be with a reddish tint and a light brown head. Slightly burnt notes with a dry bitterness. Basically a very light beer without much body. A Porter by traditional British standards and far from the heavy stuff (Imperial Stout) we call Porter in Denmark.

omhper (23728) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2003
Bottled. Dark brown with rich head. Slight aroma of figs and honey. Sweet, fruity and reasonably malty with plastic bold mouthfeel and low bitterness. Remarkably similar to lighter examples of Baltic porters brewed in ex-Soviet countries.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2002
Very dark brown; aroma of liquorice, prunes, buckwheat honey, burnt raisins - this is macrobrew? Slightly fizzy, but fairly smooth in its dark malt palate - hints of black currant & liquorice, finishing slightly watery. A decent brew today; thirty years ago I would have been making pilgrammages to Pottsville.

bhensonb (14177) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 23, 2010
Old stubby bottle. Pours dark brown cola with a bubbly tan head. Kind of a dark caramel aroma. Medium body. Lots of chocolate character. Not too bitter, but enough to offset the malt. Not getting more than a hint of coffee. Decent but not destined for the top 10.

Tmoney99 (13618) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2005
Bottle. Poured a black color with a small rocky off-white head that was mostly diminishing. Light aroma. Medium sparkling body with a thin texture. Light bitter sweet flavor with short finish.

argo0 (13318) - Washington DC, USA - APR 11, 2003
Very dark brown with small mocha head. Aroma is raisin and chocolate, with some coffee. Taste is mildly sweet and chocolate-ish, but suffers in comparison with the aroma. Palate is adequate, but a bit overcarbonated.

Lubiere (12970) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2006
Deep black porter with a thin moka head. No aroma, no chocolates, no nothing. In mouth, chocolate malt, with rather cloying fruitiness. Short and light watery bodied beer. On tap at the CNY Brewfest 2006.
