Danish: “Jeg anmelder – derfor er jeg til”. Disse få ord af tvivlsom valør har gennem mange år været selve drivkraften bag Hr. Papsø. I årevis rejste han nært og fjernt til eksotiske steder som Onetaka, Windischeschenbach, San Diego – ja selv til Køge – i hans konstante søgen efter den hellige gral: den perfekte øl. Det, som startede som en måde at fordrive ventetiden på for 25 år siden på et vandrerhjem i Newcastle, mens han var romantisk stærkt involveret i en helt særlig pige, skulle siden gå hen og blive en livslang lidenskab, hvor han simpelthen bare måtte anmelde enhver øl, han mødte på sin vej. Med sin trofaste følgesvend – Mr. Pink – og sit sæt af guldbelagte smageglas i fingerbølstørrelse – har Hr. Papsø nu nået hele 25.000 anmeldelser på verdens mest velestimerede ølanmeldeseshjemmeside www.ratebeer.com. Og det skal naturligvis fejres.

English: ”I rate – therefore I am”. These very few words were for many years the simple governing rule for Hr. Papsø to live by. For years he would seek out exotic and faraway places like Onetaka, Windischeschenbach, San Diego – yes even Køge – in his constant quest for the holy grail: that perfect beer. What started as a way of spending time while being romatically involved with a certain girl at a youth hostel in Newcastle, NSW turned into a 25 year long passion of rating every beer he encountered. With his faithful companinon – Mr. Pink – and his set of gold coated tasting thimbles always ready for action Hr. Papsø has now reached 25.000 ratings on the world’s most renowned beer rating portal www.ratebeer.com. And that for sure calls for a beer to celebrate. “Hr. Papsø In Black” is such a beer combining three of the things Hr. Papsø really loves in a beer: that cool darkness, a fresh and crisp dryhopping and high drinkability. Be calm – be cool. Enjoy.

Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 12, 2013
from Au Trappiste, Bern - hazy dark brown beer under a solid foamy beige head; a solid hoppiness where licorice dominates, black cherries and mint; medium-bodied, assertive and solidly bitter; very dry and long bitter hoppy finish with more notes of prunes and licorice - straightforward, fresh and good

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 3, 2013
Hugely hoppy which i tend to like but this is a little bit out of balance with the rest of the beer. Jam, licorice and tropical fruits at the end but all underdone by the sheer power of the hops. Good, v.good in fact just a touch out of kilter.

McNeillR (1207) - SCOTLAND - NOV 29, 2013
Firm brown with a decent film tan fur of a head. Rich red berry and charred hops. Easy going crisp, tight hoppy and wee bit dry pithy. Firmly sweet tight carbonation, foamy ice cream coke float finish. Got better as it got warmer/sedimentiery.

Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle. Huge thick creamy light brownish head that really lasted. Dark mahogany color. Excellent lacework left in the glass. Light chocolate, hint of roasted malt, citrus, grass, floral and light fruity notes. Over the palate came smoke, light dark chocolate, roasted malt, citrus, grass and floral hoppy notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Light bitter and sweet flavor in harmony. Lingering light roasted and bitter hoppy finish. Excellent beer.

gunnar (5290) - Sandnes, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2013
On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours black with a small creamy tanned head. Aroma of dark fruits, roasted malts, liquorice and grapefruit. Taste is intense roasty and hoppy, tar and bitter chocolate, lots of bittering hops. Tasty and crisp, very good beer.

Keg@CBC2013, poured by man himself Dark, almost opaque black color, steady brown head. Grassy, sweaty hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Very hoppy, citric flavor with some sweetier caramel in the background. Decent, hoppy-dominated version of the style.

ComradeK (1022) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - NOV 12, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with lots of floating sediment and a huge beige head, which lasts very well and leaves good lacing. Pine resin hops, mild black coffee and roasty malt make up the aroma. Pine needle hops up front lead through a touch of plum to a blend of roasty malt and black coffee in the mid-palate. Mild citrus hops keep the finish fairly clean. This could perhaps do with a little more by way of hops, to put it properly into black IPA territory, but on the whole it is pretty good.
