A note from Papsoe: some bottles seem to develop excessive carbonation hence please chill well and open Hr. Papsø over the kitchen sink with a glass closeby!

Danish: Denne øl er opkaldt efter vores gode ven, Henrik Papsø, der i år er nået 10.000 ratings på www.ratebeer.com. Hr. Papsø har en sødme over sig, og dem, der har haft fornøjelsen af at møde ham, har måttet sande, at han er sød, imødekommende og fyldig, men også kompleks. Han bør nydes i små doser, men ikke desto mindre er det dejligt at lune sig ved Hr. Papsøs alkohol og gavmilde væsen. Hr. Papsø er blød, men kan sagtens gemmes. Langtidslagringen på træfad har bevirket, at Hr. Papsø bærer præg af vanilje, bourbon og trænoter. Hr. Papsø indeholder særproduceret mørk muskovado-sirup, hvilket giver ham sin fyldige krop og sødmen. Har du en hul tand, som du gerne fylder med søde sager, er denne øl særdeles velegnet, ja vi vil faktisk gå så langt som til at påstå, at vi har fyldt slik til voksne på flaske.

English: This beer is named after our good friend, Mr. Henrik Papsoe, who has reached 10,000 ratings this year at www.ratebeer.com. Mr. Papsoe reflects sweetness and those who have had the pleasure of meeting him have found to their cost that he is sweet, obliging, and solid, yet also complex. He is to be enjoyed in small quantities, but nevertheless his alcohol and generous nature is a delight to be warmed by. Even though Mr. Papsoe is soft, he can easily be aged. Due to long-time aging on barrels, Mr. Papsoe has notes of vanilla, bourbon, and wood. One of the ingredients is a special produced dark Muscovado syrup, which provides him with his full body and sweetness. If you have a sweet tooth that you happily fill with sweets, this beer is particularly well-suited. Well, actually we would claim that we have filled adult candy onto bottles.

Greasy oily golden, not much of a head. Oily soft spicy and nutty brightness. Initial taste is bright, oily malt and formalised sweetness. Soft carbonation and fading mouthfeel, certainly boozy but dusts of blackberry. Finishes lean lemon sweetness. Linger is fairly rich.

TorbenJensen (1278) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2015
The foam is rough and the beer is very sparkling. After a few minutes there is sporadic foam on the top and lack of carbon dioxide in the beer. It is extremely difficult to wait for first sip, because the flavor is really attractive. The flavor is malt, heavy ripe fruits like plum and raisin and a little yeast and vanilla. Warming alcohol with large plump fruit is predominant flavor. Furthermore, it offers a mouth feel that is bold and very vinous. The finish is long, fruity, winey and warming. In the aftertaste you will also find clear signs of its aging in Bourbon casks, and together it gives a splendid beer experience. It is a dangerous cocktail of vintage wine, beer and whiskey at once. Incredibly tasty. If you do not have a real glass such as a Westmalle glass, use a red wine glass as an alternative. Also make sure that it is not served too cold, 12-14 degrees Celsius is appropriate. In that way you get all the enjoyment values with. And believe me, there is plenty of enjoyment in this beer.

abemorsten (3288) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2015
25 cl bottle. Batch #97. Clear deep mahogany coloured body with a light brown rim. Vinous bourbon, liquorice, light soy sauce and vanilla stand out among the aromas on the complex and pungent nose. Heavy sweet, alco warm and full bodied. Barrel notes, vanilla and oak, even salty tones. Could be an all nighter at home this one.
