Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle 100 cl. Courtesy of fiulijn. Pours a hazy orangey brown with a beige head. Vanilla and subtle roast in the nose. Medium body, subtle unclean roast, some vanilla with a bitter finish. Lacks crispiness - sort of a Stout with extra hops which is not my idea of a Black IPA. 250213

2013-02-24, bottle from Central City Liquors, Surrey, 6-4-7-4-13=34
Dark brown color with medium sized compact head. Aroma of dark caramel, with some roasted malt, and dirty water. The body is lean, the mouthfeel is quite dry, with strong flavor of roasted malts, some dusty feeling, strong bitterness, enough hop resins.
Hard brew, I enjoyed it more on draught.

2012-12-31, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 6-4-8-4-14=36
Black color, with brown hue; small creamy head. The aroma of roasted malt is quite dusty too. Lean mouthfeel; roasted malt flavor, very good, not excessive, yet dry, with some nice black coffee, and vibrant hopping, bitter and partially resiny. Long final.
Very good.
