COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Una birra forte e specialissima ad alta fermentazione. Uno stile tra la Strong Ale e la Birra D’Abbazia. Ha un colore scuro ed una schiuma densa e persistente. Nonostante l’alta gradazione alcoolica è caratterizzata da un corpo non eccessivo che la rende facilmente bevibile. Va servita attorno ai 15°, temperatura che evidenzia il gusto di frutta matura: ciliegia e marasca, liquirizia, legno e un leggero affumicato. Accompagna molto bene le carni saporite i formaggi stagionati, i dessert ed il cioccolato, in particolare la torta Sacher. 18.5°

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2010 Bottle 75 cl. Pours a hazy amber with a lively off-white head - comes gushing. Sweet aroma of caramel and brown sugar. Medium body, sweet burned caramel, dried fruits and a little yeast. There’s a vague underlying tartness and combined with the gushing it indicates an infection - just like the bottle I had 5 years ago!! No real bitterness. 100910

Bottle 75 cl Dark, reddish amber, unclear with a light brown collapsing head. Fresh, tart, fruity nose. Has some of the same rustic, earthy malty notes also found in the Baladin beers. Weird underlying sourness - I wonder if it’s intentional or a sign of infection? Interesting if not exactly formidable. 6/3/5/2/12= 2.8 180505

joergen (21533) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2005
Bottled. Cloudy red brown colour with a small beige head. Nice flavour with lots of malts, dried fruits and sweetness. Malty flavour with notes of tobacco and dried fruits. Strange acidic finish. A nice attempt of making a belgian ale, but not quite succeeded.
