From tap at MikkellerBar. Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma is smooth fruity hoppy, toasted dark malty, chocolate, bitter and smooth fruity. Light chli bite int the finish. Rather hoppy and more like a black ipa than a spice/herb/vegetable. Vague smoked touch too.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 8, 2012
On tap. Pours an opaque black with a dense and creamy light brown head. Very fresh roasty nose with very subdued imprints of the massive array of spices. Medium body, great and chewy roastiness, slightly sweet with a vanilla whiff. Has a distinct malt bitter finish. Very high drinkability in this one. Basically just a very, very good Porter - all the hip ingredients are very subdued which to me is quite good news. 070412

UPDATED: APR 13, 2013 12th June 2012
Thanks to Ben H for this and then another from Papsoe. Dark brown beer, small tan head. Palate is very slightly viscous with fine carbonation, a little dry. Rich dark malts, dry. Unsweet dark chocolate and a little coffee.Minty lime sort of thing going on but slightly vegetal. Dry finish with malt cream and a lingering malt aftertaste and a trace of hop. Another inventive and enjoyable beer from Mikkeller.
