Bottle shared by TheAlum at Muckfest III...thanks Adam! - Pours ruby brown with a thin bubbly tan head. Nose is sweet bourbon with some cinammon that comes through the light tartness. Maltier than I expected, until I read the label and realized this was a sour porter. Taste is real sweet, but not cloying, with vanilla and brown sugar, a cherry sourness, and real mild tartness. Smooth and well-carbonated, this beer was pretty restrained for what it is--impressive.

bursts out of the bottle, a lot going on here. some dark fruit, toasty, vanilla, the sour brown component seems at odds with the bourbon barely trying to break through. the spiciness is nice but, again, doesn’t play nice with the rest of the flavors. Vlad Impaler knocks this one out.

Huge thanks to sideshowe for sharing! Pours a dark chocolate brown, almost black color with purplish plum edges and a 1.5 finger beige head that quickly settles into a lasting ring.  Streaks of lace left behind. Slightly spicy, vinous aroma with a decent barrel character along with dark malt, toasted oak, vinous fruit and earthy funk. Hints of vanilla and bourbon followed by grape, dark cherry and plum. Medium bodied with tight carbonation up front and a tart vinous red wine flavor along with some dry, earthy oak. Good balance of dry toasted oak, dark malt, subtle puckering acidity, vanilla and bourbon. Really complex but a bit too sweet for my liking.  Hints of toffee, vanilla, spicy bourbon, oak, chocolate and dark fruit.  Really sweet but not boozy with the abv dangerously well masked. Faint vinegar in finish but not overly acetic or solvent like.  Pretty good but I that there was more bourbon.  There’s a bit too much going, overpowering the bourbon and hurting the overall flavor.

22-MAR-2012, bottle @Papsø. Unclear brown with lasting beige head. Sour nose with roast. Taste is sour porter with roast and Flemmish-like vinegar notes. Black IPA meets sour? Strange beast, but really interesting.

Papsoe (25076) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Masterski. Pours an opaque dark brown with a beige head. Sweet Bourbon aroma blending in amazingly well with the Flemish sour accents. Medium body, sweet woody cherry notes, tartness galore but everything is blending in wonderfully with the Bourbon. rum, brown sugars, dark fruit - you name it. Ends tart, never bitter. Amazingly complex. 220312
