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.

Plovmand (6176) - Helsinge, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a big steady beige head. The aroma is fruity hops, licorice, grass and citrus. The flavor is spicy and fruity hoppy with notes of licorice and light toasted malt. The roast is most profound in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beer4000 (4322) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2013
500 ml bottle @ Cardinal. Very dark, almost black body with a big, creamy tan head. Lovely aroma of sweetish, dark malt, citric fruit and pine. Flavor is sweet, slightly roasted dark malt, citric fruit, pine and quite bitter with some notes of chocolate. Medium body and decent aftertaste. Very nice, but the hop flavor here seems to be a bit out of balance with the dark malt. The biterness is a bit sharp edged. Still an enjoyable beer well worth a celebration.

larsga (5962) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2013
Huge brown head. Clear dark red body with a few floaties and strong carbonation. Earthy minty resiny aroma with roasty metallic notes. Dry-sweet resiny earthy roasty taste with minty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, fizzy mouthfeel. Dryish resiny minty pine needle aftertaste with salty roasty tropical fruit notes. It’s nice, but a bit too fizzy and hoppy. It doesn’t really gel the way it should. (0.5l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

Ibrew2or3 (6523) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Enjoyed at the 4de Gents Bierfestival, 2013. The 50cl bottle pours with a deep dark body that supports a tall tan head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, some molasses, chocolate, brown bread and then a touch of lime peel. The taste starts with a light degree of dark roasted malts and then it moves into hop bitterness that has a Mt Hood spicy black licorice sensation to it as well as some citrus hop notes. Pretty darn nice as the roasted malts and various hops blend well together.
