yespr (40837) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2011
37.5 cL bottle. Pours dark amber to brown with a huge tan head. Aroma is wooden, acetone and phenols. Rather chemical - my wife gave up on this after a few sips. This malty, persisting chemical and ethanol dense. Light raisin sweetness beneath. Acetone and sweet malty finish, light pine touch way underneath. Difficult.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2011
Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours a very dark brown - close to black - with a creamy beige and lacing head. Odd acetone aroma, there’s really heavy paint thinner here! Solid body, some sweet overripe fruit but the acetone overpowers everything. No real traces of rum though. Something went seriously wrong here! 131011

Dark brown opaque beer, good mid - tan head. Light palate, semi dry and quite crisp. At first sip it comes across as a sour dark beer but as you adjust it’s quite a sweet barrel beer. Rum that is more than offset by tangy spices. Finish is dry and minerally spicy. More of a Christmas style beer than previous editions but ironically falls in to that trap of being a tad over spiced. Also it’s a bit dry but overall hard to dislike!

Courtesy of Jens, thanks a lot!
The color is dark brown, almost black, with a nice creamy head, beige, reducing to a collar. Some smell of paint thinner, that covers the roasted malt, and is persistent. Good body strength; flavor of roasted malt, some dark chocolate, some spices, and strong, burning alcohol; also some chemicals, paint thinner, very light acetone.
Boozy and chemically challenging.
