Aroma initially characterized by pepper that fight in a field ruled by a rich fruity fragrance of dried fruits with ripen banana, toffee and a soft sweet chocolate fragrance. The attentive taster shouldn’t miss a sharp floral of rose and a sensation of must of wine always pleasant.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2005 (Bottle 75 cl) Apparently brewmaster Teo Musso Matterino is quite an excentric, but he sure does produce a range of excellent beers. Dark brown beer wit a ruby red tint, very hazy from the lack of filtration. Full, light brownish head. A full-bodied, very rich ale with loads of flavours. Suoerb. 241203

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JAN 22, 2005
Very deep mahogany with thick off white head. Candied hop nose with a fruitness that is not apparent at first. Heavy weight with an intial sweetness that fades to a earthy dry fruitiness. Flavors of candied fruits, exotic chocolate, dried fruit, lots of spices come in and out as you sip and swallow. Interesting, it kinda reminds me of a cross between OSA and beglian strong ale, as far as the spice component is concerned. Not bad

Bottle thanks to Styles. Deep brownish color with some orange/red hues. Long lived tan head with great lacing. Dark fruits in aroma. Highly carbonated. Nice rich malt flavor. Some spice in taste. Decent.
