COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Planet Porter is a big beer for everyone. Don't be afraid of the dark; this beer is very drinkable and remarkably smooth, brewed for a malty, coffee-like flavor. A once almost extinct style of ale, Boulder Brewing helped revive the category and this is now one of the oldest American porters.

Ungstrup (37216) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. A pitch black beer with a thin borwn head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt as well as strong notes of chocolate and light notes of alcohol that burns slightly in the throat, which surprises me at 5.5% ABV.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a very dark brown - close to black - with a reddish hue and a small, beige head. Sweetish, roasted malt aroma. Medium body with lots of sweet, roasted malty flavours and loads of chocolate accents. Slightly burned finish with touches of aroma hops. A very pleasant brew. 060706

Theydon_Bois (19189) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle at DIA - 04/06/12. Very dark brown approaching black with a thin tan head. Light roast malt nose allied to a little sweet chocolate. Chocolate taste, malts, dark fruit backdrop. Lightish body a little on the watery side, drinkable though.

2.1
Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2008
Hazy brown. Some chocolate and coffee aroma with a little bit of caramel. The flavour mixes cheap coffee, diacteyl, and vague nuts. The body is light and the mouthfeel is creamy, but that butter has got to go.
