From bottle, blindtasting #6. Pours hazy and golden deep amber to brown with huge tan and slowly collapsing head. Dry malty and slight hoppy, vague yeasty note. Sweet malty, slight metallic touch. Light spice note and roasted caramel malt base. Ends with a light bitterness. Ungstrup (37558) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2010
Bottled. A hazy deep red beer with a lazing tan head. The aroma has notes of malt and citrusy as well as dusty hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and both citrusy and dusty hops, as well as light notes of prunes. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2009
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Miver. Clear orangey brown with a tall, firm and lively shaving foam style beige head leaving some lacework. Spicy, roasted malt aroma. Medium body with hard roasted malts, lightly burned accents and a dry, lightly bitter finish. 010209 brokensail (16444) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 8, 2011
A: The pour is incredibly light for a porter. Seems like a dark amber color with a big khaki head and a lot of carbonation.
S: Very fruity, almost like cherries. I get a strange woody note out of the nose. Still some roasted malt there, which is one of the few indications of this being a porter. Also seems to be a bit of cough syrup.
T: The cherries and cough syrup are picked up right away on the palate. That woodiness is there again, which I can’t quite figure out. Maybe some grapes, too, and a mild roasted malt character.
M: Medium in body with a moderate to high level of carbonation.
D: Eh, sort of what you would expect from a 3-4 year old porter. Hopefully not too many people are really holding on to these anymore.
hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2007
12oz bottle. Poured a medium to darker brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of roasted/toasted nuts, light chocolate, caramel, and a little earthy. Tastes of caramel, roast, light chocolate, and coffee. Body on the thinner side.
hopscotch (11078) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2007
Bottle... Clear, deep orange ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Earthy, herbal aroma of chocolate, almonds and raw-hide with a whiff of smoke. The flavor is balanced nicely; caramel, toffee and citric hops. Crisp and refreshing for a porter. Medium-bodied with medium carbonation. Short, crisp, mostly clean finish. I’m not quite sure where the brewers were going with this one, but their efforts resulted in a mellow, very drinkable porter. Thanks go out to mgumby10 for breaking out the bottle at boboski’s! kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

Bottle from Capone’s. Dark brown pour with 2-finger khaki head. Aroma of big roasty dark malt, brown sugar, some chocoff and cherry notes. Medium palate heft, with flavors of dark malt, slight chocoff, slight cherry, and a big finishing hop bite. This one seems to get hoppier and drier as it warms.

Dark brown with a huge beige head. Herbal aroma with roasted malt and caramel notes. Flavour was sweet with roasted malt, caramel, chocolate and bourbon notes. 3fourths (9341) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 7, 2007
12oz bottle. Deep garnet colored body with a light, off-white head. Nose of roast, cream, some scotch, some rye bread, and some light grassy, lightly minty hops. Similar nose to Dead Reckoning Porter, but less hoppy/minty. Fresh cocoa and light roast up front, turning heavier, more charry on the back. Smooth, light and thin on the palate, and pasty in a creamy, roasty finish, with lingering soft hints of campfire wood smoke.
