Bottle 50cl. yespr (48207) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2009
Clear medium to dark brown color with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, sweet roasted malt, smoke - peat. Flavor is moderate to light heavy sweet and moderate burnt bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
50 cL bottle. Pours pitch black with a thick, creamy and chocolate brown head. Light fruity, hard roasted malt, breadish, vague liqourice and vague sugarish aroma. Liqourice, dark chocolate, mild coffee and breadish roasted malt. Vague sweetness nicely counterbalanced by a good bitterness. Vague roasted acidity too. Fennel spiced finish. Smooth and solid flavourful brew, a bit too much fennel. Ungstrup (38597) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2011
Drunk to celebrate my rating number 21,300. Bottled. A pitch black beer with a huge dark brown head. The aroma has notes of sweet and roasted malt, bread, and a bit of spice. The flavor is quite sweet with notes of coffee, bread both newly cut and some toasted, sweet and roasted malt, and just a hint of spice, leading to a dry toasted finish. joergen (29397) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2009

Bottled. Pitch black colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is very sweetish sour liquorice along with roasted malts, coffee and mild alcohol. Flavour is spices, liquorice and quite much roasted malts and coffee. Feels way more burning alcoholic in the flavour than 7.5 sounds...Otherwise very nice.

Opaque black beer. Good tan head. Minerally dark chocolate on the nose. Semi soft palate, a little dry. Pretty light for a 7.5% porter. Dark chocolate, a little cream. Subtle spice and fruit. Minerals and a touch of roasted malt. Not a shouty beer but has nice subtle flavours. Finishes dry and soft with minerals and dark chocolate. Very well joined up porter.
