(Draught at Plan B, Copenhagen, 22 May 2009) Pitch black colour with lasting, pale brown head. Roasted, malty nose with chocolate, coffee and a touch of wood. Malty, roasted taste with notes of coffee, dark chocolate and hints of wood and vanilla. More than medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Nicely balanced with alcohol well hidden. Very nice beer.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2009
On tap. Pours completely pitch black with a small light brown head. Sweetish aroma of hard roasted malt, a little licorice and a very vague whiff of bourbon. Medium-bodied, hard roasted malt and licorice and in the flavour the bourbon notes really come out. Yummy. Lightly sweet vanilla and a dry, malt bitter finish. 150509

Draft. A black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of sweet and roasted malt as well as light notes of wood. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, bourbon, hard roasted malt, and alcohol, leading to a dry and roasted finish.

Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2009
Draught. [Beer festival 2009] Most noticeable difference from the steel tank version and the oak aged version in my opinion was the diminishing notes of smoke. It seems like the wood barrels had soaked up some of the smoky notes and “replaced” it with the notes of (in this case) Bourbon aroma and flavor. This added to the overall complexity of the beer. Small beige head that mostly diminished. Fair display of lacework. Pitch black color. Aroma was quite complex with notes of Bourbon, wood, mild smoky notes, roasted malt, liquorish, dark chocolate, mild coffee, vinous and somewhat dried fruity notes in there as well. Full bodied with a soft carbonation and mild alcoholic and thick texture. Heavy sweet and bitter flavor in balance. Lingering smoked salami and roasted malty finish. Even better René!

stouby (4455) - Holbæk, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2009
Draught in Valby 2009. Dark with a small brown head. Aroma heavy malty (roasted, burnt, smoky, oak). Flavor moderate sweet, heavy bitter. Fyull body. Nice experiment, more harmonic, but not my style that day.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2009
