Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2010
Bottle 50 cl. Pours an opaque dark brown with an orange hue and a beige head. Sweetish hard roasted malts and vanilla in the nose. Quite full-bodied, a little low in carbonation. Sweet notes of hard roasted malt, chocolate and vanilla. The Akevitt accents are rather distinct and so is the wood. The finish has warming alcohol combined with some malt bitterness. Nice one! 090110

Opaque black - brown beer. No head. Dark malt nose with fruity spirit and a whisper of smoke. Dry palate. How to judge this beer without ever having tried Akevitt? Well it’s a porter with smooth dark malts and a trace of sourness but also lactose sweetness. No oaky vanilla barrel here - so what does the Akevitt barrel add? I think a fruity spirit that contrasts nicely with the dark malt. Decent.
