1 pt 6 fl oz. Pours deep black brown with light brown head. Slight chocolate and malty note aroma. Dry rye malty, smoked, dried raisin flavour. Finish is smoked. Great flavour and aroma. Ungstrup (38382) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2004
A red-brown beer with a disappearing brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of chocolate, but not much smoke compared to a Bamberg beer. The flavor is dry, slighty sour but also sweet and with light notes of chocolate. The end is quite roasty. I can’t detect the smoke, but it is a nice porter. joergen (29216) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2005

Bottled. Almost opaque black colour, small off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts, smoked wood and slight "babyrauchbierish". Flavour is American hops, caramel and a bit wood. Aroma has the smoke/roast in it, but the flavour seems to totally lack that part... 8 4 6 3 14

Really dark brown. Hints of licorice and smoke in the aroma. Medium bodied, somewhat roasty, slightly malt sweet with bitter finish. Only a hint ofg smoke, I would have expected this beer to be more aggresive, but it is rather well balanced. madmitch76 (25537) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2009
8th August 2008. On tap at GBBF. Lovely rich fruity porter. Chocolately, mellow mellow smoke. All very well joined up in to quite a sumptuous porter.
