Papsoe (25075) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 16, 2011
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Cletus. Pours a reddish brown with a beige head. Very distinct coffee aroma, dry indeed. Medium body, a little dark fruit but heavy roast - almost chili-like - with some fruit. Ends dry, not much malt astringency or hops though. But a pleasant and easy drink. 170411

Bottle shared by Evin and the Kernel crew, cheers guys! Hazy dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Light palate, semi soft and semi dry. Smooth coffee and dark chocolate in the dark malt. The coffee tastes like it’s hung around for awhile but is still potent. Semi dry finish. Minerals. Allright but I can’t help thinking it has a somewhat forced feel about it.

Guest tap at Willimantic. Very dark maroon brown color, thick tan head, solid lacing. Aroma of coffee, prunes, plums. Taste is dark fruity coffee. Light body. Tasty.

yngwie (15188) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 16, 2011
Bottle, shared by Papsoe. It pours an unclear, dark reddish brown body and a dense, finger-thick beige head. The aroma has a nice coffee scent, with roasted malts and some chocolate. A bit thin on the palate, and the flavor isn’t at the same high level as the aroma, but still quite nice. It’s mostly coffee, but also some chocolate. A bit like tobacco maybe. Medium body, smooth. Lasting finish with a nice roasted bitterness. Overall, a nice one, especially the aroma. 110416

Cask at GBBF Very dark brown. Coffee and roasted malt on nose, more chocolate than coffee really, not a big fan of this.
