Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin dark brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, soy sauce, roasted malt, bourbon, and some vanilla. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of peated smoke, wood, vanilla, and bourbon, as well as medium notes of roasted malt, coffee, and soy sauce, leading to a dry, roasted, and somewhat alcoholic finish.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2010
Bottled@The Chriso Rock The Roof Down pre-GBBF shindig. Pitch black colour, tiny brownish head. Aroma is quite much brandy/sherrylike with also some liquorice, chocolate, mild vanilla as well as some alcohol. Flavour is liquorice, some vanilla, mild cocoa, chocolate with also some sweet alcohol. Finishes in a quite brandy/sherrylike burn. Still rather much of the Hel & Verdoeminis left, which makes this very drinkable.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle 18 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours an opaque dark brown with an orange hue and a rough light brown head. Lovely barrel aroma and hard roast malts. Solid body, rather low in carbonation, hard roasted malts and lots of chocolate again with a barrel edge. No real bitterness but quite a boozy and warming finish. 250810

Bottled, thanks Baggio! Near black, small head. Rich coffee aroma. Mid sweet with full body, oily dense mouthfeel. Lots of chocolate and coffee, some whiskey. Mildy warming with seemless mouthfilling flavours. Top stout!
