yespr (40454) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2007
From bottle, no 10 at Papsoes blindtasting. Pours hazy brown to deep orange and with a lacing off-white head. Hoppy and caramel malty aroma. Soft woody and dry hoppy flavour. Has a very subdued sweetness with is completely outconquered by the barley and the hoppy flavours. Has a mild spice note lingering into the finish and leaves a nice complex sensation. Ends mild and yet complex.

Beautiful red-amber color. Very nice malty aroma, and vanilla oak. Strong malt and toffee flavor, sweet, lightly phenolic, with an evident nutty edge. Still strong bitterness. Warming alcohol presence. It can hold up a few years more, but it won’t ever be too exciting.

2007-11-30, Papsø’s Blind Tasting, 8-5-7-4-15=39
Cloudy red-amber color; creamy head. Very good malt and hop aroma. Good malty body, with its fairly strong hop share, caramelly and chocolatey. Good Barley Wine or American Strong Ale, even if a bit unemotional; but I like it.
