DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Purple wax bomber (No. 991, 2009) shared at Hamilton’s Tavern: Blackest black and topped with larger frothy bubbles on the pour, but the head dissipates nearly immediately. An intriguing, sweet aroma filled with oak, campfire smoke, roasted malts, bittersweet dark chocolate, espresso, raw dough balls toasted on the outside, red fruity esters, vanilla, and plum. Flavors include sweet malts- entirely balanced by bitter chocolate, pulpy fruit, smoked thick oak, vinous tannin qualities, vanilla and somewhat of a lactic finish and aftertaste. Full-boded, softly carbonated, and exceptionally smooth feel throughout, which is reinforced by a fair amount of accompanying, alcoholic heat. Drinkability: Pure and unexpected characteristics makes this brew a first-rate knockout. Pairing: Roasted lapin over asparagus. Rebuy: Yes. #450 on 16052010, DG.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2010
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of byaeger. Pours a clear very dark brown with a tint of red and a smallish beige head. Aroma of Bourbon - and brown Malaco licorice allsorts... Rather boozy nose. Medium body, some hard roasted malts, very hot and boozy rather than woody. Some malt bitterness and a shitload of booze. 270310
