75 cL bottle. Pours hazy amber with a collapsing off-white head. Spiced and roasted malty aroma. Spiced and vague roasted malt base flavour with a light bitterness coming through. Quite spiced and yet smooth caramelish into the finish.

Ungstrup (39109) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2005
A hazy pale nut brown beer with a nice brown head. The aroma is sweet yeasty and malty, with very slight hints of roasted malt, much less than expected from a beer called a Porter. The flavor is sweet and seems stronger than the 6.5% ABV, and is very malty as well as slightly roasted. The end is dry.

Hazy dark brown beer. Good off white head. Quite crisp for a porter, good sharp carbonation. Not bitterness or smokyness, just good smooth malt with a vague streak of marmite.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2006
Ceramic bottle. Ruby red colour (alt. reddish brown), big offwhite head (no matter how you poured it, it foamed lots). Aroma is licorace, yeast, malts and caramel. Licorace, malts, yeast and caramel is in the flavour. Very smoothly mixed. Alcohol brings a bit sweetness to the whole, but is not disturbing.

omhper (26061) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2003
Bottled. Dark ambe with creamy head. Roasty coffee aroma. Sweet, malty and fruity, notes of plums. Woody, salty and quite pleasant. I'm always suspicious on beers in too fancy or gimmicky bottles, but this does impress.

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) This original version was brewed by Brouwerij Sterkens in Meer. Dark brown colour with a nice, beige head. Some roasted, malty notes and some sweet dried fruit as well - figs in particular. Rather light body with a dry finish. Very well balanced. 210598
