fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2009
Blind tasting at Papsø’s
Hazy amber to dark amber color; small creamy head. Nice aroma of caramel and American hops, a bit dusty later, then hazelnuts. Very good mouthfeel, both for the strength and for being smooth; excellent caramel flavor, sweet enough for my tooth, with an extreme hopping that brings some resins, some oils and some fruitness (oranges). There is a good balance between the sweetness, the fruit touch and the bitterness; also the alcohol warming final contributes. Strong and powerful final. Excellent!
