Bottled. An unclear brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with a slight acidic edge - bret? The flavor is sweet matly and very much dominated by alcohol. Tasted blind. Thanks Storm for sharing.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 26, 2008
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of Storm. Pours an almost clear reddish brown with an off-white head. Very distinct oak aroma. Quite full-bodied, sweet and sugary, plenty of roasted malt and a little yeast. No real bitternes. Extremely sticky - way, way too sweet and off balance. 190408

Opaque very dark brown beer. Some oak and sour malt on the nose. Semi soft palate with next to no carbonation. Sour dark malt with a bare whisper of marmite - well integrated. Oaky sweet note but no vanilla. Dark fruit - a little cherry and plums, surrounded by chocolate liquer. Trace of dried fruits. The beer goes down easily and it’s complex flavour makes every sip an anticipation.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2008
Muddy brown colour. Toasty, oaky aroma almost like a brown sugary barbeque sauce. There is a subtle fruitiness, bouncing between citrusy and tropical. The body is dextrous, with an enlivening hint of acidity. The flavour is fruity, with intensely vinous oak notes, mandarin and yuzu. Big clean malts and a whiff of smoke. Finishes with an alcoholic splash. Fantastically complex, with great balance and drinkability, as well as a keen sense of style.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2010 (750ml bottle) Pours a dark brown body with mahogany edges and a small beige head. Aroma of toffee, raisins, chocolate, fig, vanilla, and brandy. Flavor of toffee, prune, raisins, caramel, and chocolate that dries with some subtle oak in the finish.
