Papsoe (25094) - 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
