Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2005
(Bottle 30 cl) Dirty, muddy appearance - head is fine though, creamy, light brown and rather stable. Light chocolatey flavours and doesnít reaaly get much from the burned malts this is based on. Very bitter. 100204

JorisPPattyn (9473) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2003
(Still brewed at Texelse bierbrouwerij) Light-brown head, quickly gone. Hazelnutbrown, hazy - yeast in suspension. Nose of roasted malt, chocolate & something sourish. Taste gives even more outspoken roasted malt, now with cigarash arome. Malty tones dominate, but they have the ring of quality malts. Little bitterness. There's no trace of the sourish nose or of the added spices. Surprisingly light bodied for a winterbeer, but it is not lacking. I can live with this. Aftertaste again some chocolate. A nice beer, not for the hopheads, however. If tasted blind, I would have guessed dark bock, rather than Belgian Strong.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2002
Very cloudy dark golden colour. Good, malty, almost fruity aroma. Initial flavour is sweet (roasted malts, toffee). Very nicely balanced by a long, dry bitter finish.

Dark brown colour, lasting head. Hoppy, malty aroma. Bitter, malty sweet taste with a lovely smooth palate of roasted malts.
