Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a pitch black with a small beige head. Sweet roasty nose with an....edge most likely from the Sorachi Ace. But in general the hops battle the hard roast base. Rich body, chocolatey roast, a slight tartness and some malty bitterness. Some late warming alcohol. The Sorachi Ace doesn’t really come through. 030812

oh6gdx (22398) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Bottled. More or less black colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is some liquorice, alcohol and quite interesting herbal and grassy notes. Not that evident Sorachi Ace actually in combination to the IS elements. Flavour is liquorice, some slight ashy and roasted notes along with some floral and grassy notes. Pleasantly balanced.

Opaque black - brown beer. Little tan head. Smooth palate, softish. Creamy and smooth dark malts, not bitter or roasty. Nice Sorachi hops - the lemon cream blends in very well. Smooth and well joined up. Nice one Kees.

Bottle from Brewery Creek; bb 2015-12
Black color, small head. Excellent Imperial Stout, roasty, tarred, moderately sweet, with leather notes; there is also some liquorice flavor, blue cheese aroma, cocoa nibs, light malt sourness; good bitterness level, but not necessarily evidence of Sorachi Ace.
Overall, an interesting, excellent beer.
