COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Unclean, murky brown with a small, beige head. Sweet aroma of overripe fruit. Rather full and solid body. Sweetish malty with accents of overripe fruit - plums and apricots - and a slightly perfumy edge. Rather raw bitterness in the finish. 080806

Clear dark brown beer, tidy cream coloured head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Sweet malt, pinch of spice. Skewed coca cola with touches of paper and pepper. Dry finish. A bit weird but not awful.

fiulijn (14328) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 26, 2002
Dark amber ale. Malt aroma. Sweet malt flavour, strong alcohol, too much liquorice taste. Palate strong, but not convincing, lacks the aroma hop. Strong, without ’style’.
