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

omhper (23428) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2009
Bottled at PBF. Black, small beige head. Rich licorice aroma. Full bodied with plenty of alcohol, tar and salty licorice. A lot of power, but much nuances. The bourbon does not a whole lot. Though this is far from bad I definitely prefer Braunsteins lager beers like their pilsener to their imperial stouts.

2009-05-26, draught at Plan B, Copenhagen, 6-4-7-3-13=33
Black color; medium head. The aroma is a bit woody. Maybe smoother than the other two versions, it has also less roasted malt character, and for once I don’t think this is a good thing; in the final there is an extremly light sourness that is out of place.

2009-05-16, draught at Københavnske Øldage 2009, 7-4-7-4-14=36
Black color, small creamy head. Like the other versions, it has a good chocolate flavor, this one with more roasted malt, some liquorice, maybe too young, and not the expected vanilla; the aroma is a bit cheesy.
