Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2011
On tap. Opaque dark brown with a small, rough off-white head. The aroma is a bit odd, a strange spiciness but also gluey with distinct alcohol. Full-bodied with dried dark fruits and brown sugars. Alcoholic finish. I bet age would do good to this. 041111
