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.

Tap @ C4, Odense. Pours black with a small creamy head. Grapefruit, vague roast and liquorice. Smooth , dry and with the fresh hops lingering throughout. Tasty stuff and very well executed. Cheers Henrik.

Though that was retired. Jet black color with brown head. Malty and caramely aroma, with not much hop presence. Coffee, dark fruits, roasted malts and a bit of pine on the flavour. Slightly bitter aftertaste.

Svesse (6715) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2014
(Bottle) Almost black colour, hints of ruby when seen through light. Huge rocky beige head. Malty, roasted, hoppy nose with notes of black-currant, coffee, pine needles and possibly a touch of mint. Malty, roasted taste with black coffee, cacao, roasted malt (almost burnt), black-currant, pine needles and a generous piney bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. The comparatively moderate alcohol level makes it quite drinkable, despite the impressive bitterness. Very nice.

SlovakSniper (3551) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2014
Batch 606. Liquide presque noir avec une impeccable tête brune. Au nez, ce sont des notes chocolatées qui se fusionnent à des houblons citronnés et floraux. Encore frais! Au goût, c’est un amalgame intéressant et plaisant entre la fleur verte, les agrumes et les grains rôtis. Surprenant! En bouche, je découvre un liquide crémeux bien fouetté par les bulles. En finale, l’amertume contrôlée est à la fois verte et noire. Agréable!

Une bouteille avec Patrick. Une robe profonde avec une mousse collante et durable. Un nez légèrment chocolaté avec des notes de houblon. La bouche est simple, mince avec des notes de chocolat légèrement poussiéreux et fruité.

Boutip (4995) - 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.
