Sampled at the source. Dark clear brown color, light tan head. Aroma of lightly burnt toast. Taste has subtle cocoa.

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) "Blach & tan", back here we call it "Half & half" - both terms cover the same blend of half Lager, half Porter. I suppose this is not blended but brewed as a Dark Lager more akin to a Czech such or a German Schwarzbier. Quite dark, lightly toasted malts with a pronounced, crisp dryness and some bitterness. Light notes of coffee and a touch of chocolate and...vanilla? Actually quite good.

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2007
Bottle, July 2006. I knew I’d have to try this "classic" beer sometime. And I rather guessed that I’d be disappointed. And I was right. OK if you want a "Porter Lite" I suppose, and entirely inoffensive, but not really that much happening. Just a light caramel maltiness and a clean, light mouthfeel. OK as a quaffer. I would really like to find a beer from one of these old established regional US breweries that I really like but I guess I’ll have to keep looking.

rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2008
Bottle. Dark amber color, brownish head. Chocolate aroma, milk notes, cocoa and some cream. Chocolate flavor, quite malty and a bit too thin.

It’s more of a black lager than a porter. Nose is malty. Taste is much the same. Rated 6/22/02

2.4
brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 15, 2010
A: The pour is a dark, yet clear, mahogany color with a fluffy tan head. S: A bit of toasty and somewhat roasted malts and grains along with a mild sweetness. The lager portion seems to ruin the nose, to be honest. T: More of the same from the flavor. Just a mild roasted flavor and lots of grainy sweetness. There’s sort of a weird "off" flavor that I can’t quite identify either, maybe a bit of metal? M: Light in body with far too much carbonation to be enjoyable. D: Pretty "bleh" offering here. The adjunct lager is really overdone in this beer and just detracts from any part of it that could be enjoyable.

bhensonb (15747) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Bottle from Half Time. Pours dark brown with a foamy tan head. Dark roasted burnt malt with a treacle hint. Near medium body with lightly foamy carbonation. Flavor is not strong. Burnt/roast malt. Which seems to provide bitter in the finish. Decent drink.

3.1
Borup (15320) - Albertslund, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle. Black with a beige head. Aroma and flavour of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate and coffee.

Tmoney99 (14954) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2005
Bottle. Pours dark brown color with an average light brown frothy head that slowly diminishing. Good balanced aroma. Medium body with a creamy fizzy texture. Light bitter sweet flavor with a medium finish.

2.1
Lubiere (14151) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2005
Dark brown with a moka head. Light chocolate and grassy aroma. Sweet malt and boiled corn, no chocolate and light caramel. Light and boring.
