Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2011
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear dark brown with a vague reddish hue and a small and rough beige head. Iodine, ashes and hard roasted malts in the nose. Quite full-bodied, sweet hard roast malts, earthy and again iodine with a distinctly ashy and malt bitter finish. But a peaty beer that I for once find drinkable. 301011

omhper (19327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2011
Bottled at Bishop’ Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm. Very black beige head. The whisky aroma is more fruity, than smoky even if some peat seaps through. Sweet, full body, rounded mouthfeel. Sugar and coffee. Some peat and licorice. Marked alcohol in a finish with rather low bitterness. A sweet, heavy BA imperial stout.
