Ungstrup (29369) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 17, 2004
A pitch black beer with a huge chocolate brown head. The aroma is of coffee, chocolate, alcohol, blueberries and roasted malt. The flavor is great, roasted malt, lots of bitter chocolate, coffee, toffee, raisins, prunes, plums, slight notes of smoke, and hints of the alcohol on the palate and in the aftertaste where it blends well with the bitter notes from the roasted malt. A great beer.

joergen (20861) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2005
Dark brown colour with a small but lasting beige head, that makes laces. Fruity aroma with notes of alcohol and liquorice. Nice flavour with lots of liquorice and chocolate, and notes of alcohol and hops. Aftertaste of chocolate and hops. It’s a bit amazing, that this good porter is cheaper than most other porters in Denmark.

omhper (19447) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2004
Bottled, 1999(?) vintage. Near black, rich firm beige head.cSweet and rich, still a bit sugary. Lightly roasty, tarry and very salty. I don’t really think aging this beer does it very good - the hop character is probably all gone by now, but oh well, it was worth a shot...

Warning! Early amateur rating! Opaque black porter, moderate carbonation. Bitter coffee start and finish. A little malt in the middle. Okay. Gets easier to drink. An aquired taste.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2010 2009-07-19, draught in Warsaw, 7-4-7-4-15=37
Black color. The aroma plays with caramel and roasted malt, the flavor with roasted malt and chocolate, oxidised; medium to strong body. Strong chocolate and roasted malt at the end. Light liquorice; alcohol warmth.

2004-12-11, bottle, 8-4-8-4-15=39
Dark color. Interesting aroma: caramel, nuts, roasted malt. And the taste goes along.... Thanks Jens (Ungstrup) for this bottle!
