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.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle: Poured a black color ale with a large light brown foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with spicy hops presence is a bit off from the style. Taste is also a mix between some roasted malt notes with light hops presence with some light spicy notes which don’t really fits in that well. Body is light with good carbonation. Not bad but still a notch below other example of the style. Not sure if bottle is old or what but Simcoe hops really didn’t come through.

jsquire (3464) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Dark beer with ruby glints when held against the light. Huge foamy tan head. It took a while to coax the beer into the glass. Green hop and puffed grain nose. Very carbonated. Dark wet grains, chocolate ripe fruit, brown sugar, puffed wheat and burnt toast in the finish.

Maris (989) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2014
From a 500ml bottle on 12/5/2014 (batch number 606, BB 05/2014). Pours close to black with a big tan head. The aroma is a combo of roasted malt and fruity hops. Take a sip and you get some sweet caramel and toffee, stone fruit, followed by big firm bitterness which alternates between resin and grapefruit and roasty/burnt/coffee notes. The body is medium and it’s somewhat over carbed, which is the only real knock. A very tasty black IPA which could use just a few less bubbles.

erickok (3533) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 18, 2014
Fresh hop aroma mixed with dark roasted malts. Resin, grapefruit and quite fresh. I love Black IPA aromas. Taste is nice, but expected a bit fuller palate and with more outspoken roasted flavours. (50cl bottle from Beer City)
