Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2012
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a cloudy orangey brown with an off-white head. Heavy glue aroma, somewhat acetic with hardly any notes of the Bourbon. Medium body, sweet caramel and overripe fruit with a little Bourbon coming through now. But still these horrible glue notes. Same as with the Raspberry edition, really spoiled by the barrel here. 130612

Opaque dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Sour wet wood and emulsion paint nose. Not great! Smooth palate, airy with mild carbonation. Milky bourbon, trace of sourness. Whisper of paint. Soft semi dry finish. Okay, a bit clunky.

Leighton (18222) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s 30th Birthday Bash - CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thanks to Jack and his drunken impulse buys! Pours dark brown with a fine beige head. Rich raisins in here. Big sweetness, some alcohol. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately warming to finish with dry raisins and dark bread. Very good stuff overall, even if my rating doesn’t reflect the goodness.
