Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours an opaque black with a small, rough beige head. Soft and smooth yet intense Bourbony oak in the nose atop a layer of subtle roasted malt. Full-bodied with a soft carbonation, sweet roast, sweet licorice, plenty of vanilla and dried dark fruits - heavy on the dates and prunes. Again soft and pleasant Bourbon accents and a fairly warming alcohol in the finish without ever getting boozy. Very pleasant, very elegant. 161111

Opaque black beer, short lived tan head. Smooth and almost silky palate. Smooth dark malt. Coffee, mild spice. Slightly tangy and semi sweet bourbon. The famous Hill Farmstead balance - nothing dominates. Finishes semi dry with the mild spice a little more noticeable. Light on it’s toes and pretty drinkable. Lacks a wow factor and thus not in the highest echelons.

Pitch black color, oily, with small brown head. The aroma is spicy (ancho chilies), with roasted malt, chocolate, wood, nice coffee and some vanilla. Good body, round mouthfeel; strong flavor of dark chocolate, very rich, with moderate but pleasing sweetness, tar and tobacco, vanilla, very light liquorice, some wood; correct bitterness; the final has a light spicy vein too; there is some alcohol warmth, but the alcohol is very well hidden.
Excellent.

brokensail (10741) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Pours pretty much black in color with a very small khaki head. Intense roasted malt and bourbon aromas. Lots of vanilla notes to it. There’s a bit of the honey coming through as well as the coffee. I don’t get much spice, though. A nice bit of chocolate in the back ground. The flavor is a touch boozy at first, but otherwise quite nice. Excellent vanilla and bourbon notes with some roast, coffee, and dark chocolate. Really smooth and well done. Medium to full bodied with a low, smooth mouthfeel.
