Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of bu11zeye. Pours amber with a slight haze and a huge and lacing off-white head. Explosive cork! Rustic, fruity nose - quite plummy actually. Swet, rich fruity body, overripe fruit and an elegant plum character. Nice and different. 250113

Cork exploded from the bottle like champers! Cloudy brown beer, big off white head. Frothy light palate, somewhat over carbonated. Dry malt. Sugary sweet. Trace of fruit. Dry finish. A mess and lacking flavour.

SDalkoholic (2124) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Poured a gloomy and glowing tea brown hue with a fluffy topping of foam for a head. There wasn’t much for me to smell in the aroma and the only scent I can manage to pick up on is a funky strain of yeast or yeast gone bad. The flavor is rancid and has deteriorated becoming a gloopy malt and dead yeast mess. I really hate breweries who don’t take old product off the shelf. I don’t know who to blame really, though, it could be the distributors fault or liquor store. I am able to taste a slight sweetness but not a flavor I would compare to plum or rock candy. I hate when I have to pour beer down the drain.

5000 (6178) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Bottle:   Towards the end of this bottle the color is very mocha like, thick, large pillowy sand colored head, nice lacing.   Nice plum aroma, comes out more as it warms.   Soft dank basement, smidgen of mustiness and candi sugar.   Soft figgy notes on the tongue.   I would say plum on the tongue, but its more dark pitted fruit than simple plum, but the aroma... now thats plum.   Spritzy on the tongue, seems well carbonated, and not too heavy or chewy.   Finish is sweet, candyish, with soft notes of dark pitted fruit and plum.   Finish is a little lacking in that its not as fruity as I woudl like, seems to fall off too quickly.   Thanks for the bottle Ron!

Hazy apricot color, not much of a head. Aroma of brown sugar, plums, lots of yeasty notes. Flavor is sweet, syrupy, plums come through in the flavor a bit.
