COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For 14 wonderful years, we have been creating libations for ourselves in the hope that some others out there would share our eccentric palates and support us. Many thanks to all of you who do! Here is yet another quirky brew: a very dark and different, dry-hopped ale. Style? hard to say, you decide. Just expect massive molasses maltiness, limitless fruits on the nose and an imposing floral & zesty dry-hop finish. Peace to all and follow your dreams!
1.090 OG, 60 IBUs.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of boboski. Pours a beautiful, warm chestnut brown with a tint of red and a dense, beige head leaving some laces. The aroma is rich with sweetish, burned caramel. Quite a full body with about a ton of roasted malt and and again these accents of sweetish, burned caramel. Solid if not exactly overwhelming bitterness. 150807

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2010
Bottled. Quite much black colour with a mediumsized beigeish brown head that leaves some lace. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, mild spices, some quite strong notes of hops, but yet quite hidden in it all. Flavour is chocolate, coffee, some caramel malts, mild alcohol as well as some mild spices. Quite bitter in the finish. Strong flavourbomb, but still rather balanced and nice.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2007
Bottled at RBESG ’07. Clear dark brown. Cinnamon and grapefruit aroma. Sweet and solidly malty with full body. Salty and very hoppy. Intensely flavourful and with in your face bolf flavours that leaves no doubt it’s an American beer.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
anders37 (16250) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2007
Bottle. Pours dark brown color with a small off-white head. Malty hoppy aroma with some spicy hints. Sweet malty spicy hoppy bitter flavor. Long warming malty hoppy finish.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2007
Dark brown color; creamy head. Nice aroma, not too strong, balanced, perfumy, where some nice hop preveals over the sweet caramel; in a short while the hop increases. Medium thick mouthfeel, quite oily, with strong malt/caramel flavor, some sugars, just balanced by an equally strong hopping. The final is less hop-aromatic than expected, maybe even less long (or is it the caramel to be too much?). But very good indeed (hedonistic).

madmitch76 (14285) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2009
16th May 2008. Smooth chocolatey start with a faint molasses tone. This leads quickly to fruity hops that are not bitter. A little like a barleywine but this is something different.
