Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. It’s thick, it’s syrupy - it’s pretty damm massive! Pours a cloudy and almost opaque giolden with an off-white head leaving broad curtain of lacework. Solid body, sweet, a rich fruitiness and then of course intensely hoppy, bordering herbal and dusty. Heavy booze finish. But it...works! 160212

fiulijn (14513) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2012
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Cloudy light amber color with a dull hue; creamy head. The aroma is strong, fruity (plums, yellow stone fruits), but also overripe or rotting fruits a bit later, cheesy later again. Some malt and caramel flavor, strong bitterness, some resins and light fruitiness without excellence of hop qualities, and it has a sharp boozy character; all this really not cohesive, and it tastes like half and half of IIPA and Tennents Super. It’s incredible, but (even if I would have liked to taste them side to side) this is worse than the bottom fermentation version.
40kr (7$) per 20cl, for a own beer, is very steep.
