Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Dark amber with a huge head. Very unclear - almost muddy appearance. Some spiciness - perhaps even coriander for Joris’ sake? But also a lovely malty feel, some toffee and caramel with a balancing bitterness in the finish. Nice indeed. 020198

Pale borwn. Sugary pineapple aroma. Rather full bodied, but the sweetness kills the flavour.

Light and frothy dark brown ale. Subtle fruit to start leading to a milk chocolatey mid and then some tangy fruit and a dry malty finish. Decent!
