Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Not only brown, this is very close to black and almost opaque. The head is light brown and creamy - almost Guinness like. This doesn’t come close to your typical malty sweet Swedish Christmas beer. This is dry with a some slightly burned aromas and a marked bitterness that seems to last forever. Unusual - and almost closer to a Dry Stout. 120302
