COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with American Amarillo.

Brassée en Angleterre à partir du 18ème siècle, cette variante plus forte du Stout traditionnel était destinée à la cour de l’impératrice Catherine II de Russie. La Postiche est une héritière moderne de ce style, où les saveurs torréfiées des malts s’équilibrent aux arômes citronnés des houblons américains (Amarillo).

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2011
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of anders37. Pours an opaque black with a dense beige head leaving a neat lacework. Citrusy hops dominate the aroma and actually overpowers the dark roast. Medium body, lots of chocolate and licorice atop an ashy roastiness. Some warming alcohol in the finish, and a subdued bitterness. An Amarillo based Belgian Imperial Stout, now I’d be damned! 161211

Black color, with generous brownish compact head. It has a seducing aroma of malt and chocolate, with hints of vanilla, followed by coffee and hops. Good body structure, with a fantastic chocolate flavor, with some roasted malts, light coffee, cream, some wood, light smoke. Correct bitterness.
It has thrills and balance. Excellent beer.

Bottle shared with the Kernel crew. Opaque black - brown beer. Good tan head. Somewhat airy light palate. Very light touch of dark malt. Odd papery, bretty things going on. Soil. A little roast malt and dark chocolate towards the dry bretty finish. Gets quite bitter at the finish and through to the aftertaste. Weird! But not offensive!
