Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a clear, amber golden with a small, off-white head. Rather unusual aroma, slightly nutty, but not overly clean or pleasant. Medium body with a very alcoholic note and some very distinct bittering hops. Whatís in between the aroma and the finish is a bit uncertain, Iím just not very fond of it. 110606

Bottle at Chris_oís The Wolf tasting. Actually Rene, I brought this one. Amber colour with thin beige head. Little bit of must on aroma. Good Fullers beer with decent flavours in mouth. Aroma isnít great, but the rest is very good and drinkable.

Pours a wonderful golden amber with a small, creamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet, light port, nuts and mild hoppiness. Fine mouthfeel, good carbonation. Flavour is dry, light oxidized, port and quite nice.

bhensonb (10688) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 28, 2007
Bottle purchased at the Griffin Brewery. Bottle conditioned. Malty aroma. Deep amber color with a vigorous, frothy, lacing near-white head. Starts very malty. Lightly roasted malt impact. Passes to complex flavors, which seem to include chocolate. The chocolate stays, the malt goes, and the hop arrives. This is passing strange. Good, but strange.
