2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasting at Papsø’s
Hazy red-brown color. The aroma turns out to be soapy, artificial, feet, almost infected, a bit dusty. Weak body, with some roasted malt and caramel flavor, but also a light sourness that links more to a light infection than to the oranges; low bitterness.
Not very pleasant.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of maneliquor. Pours a clear orangey brown with a creamy beige head leaving some lacework. Slightly tart orange aroma. Medium body, an initial discreet roast and then the orange zest that could be mistaken for an infection. No real hop character. 160612

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a dark brown color with a white head. The aroma is full of chocolate and roasted malt, with a hint of cream. I don’t get any of the orange zest in the aroma, but it comes through up front in the flavor. It is joined by some cream and roasted malt and chocolate. Even with all of this, something just doesn’t work with this beer and I didn’t really care for it. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

22oz bottle gushes then settles into a watery, translucent deep brown with some foamy white head. Nose is weird, malty, brown bread, some light citrus. Flavor is the same, something is not quite right, chocolate, some bitterness. Medium bodied.

hazy chestnut, thinnest white ring. Prune and date, paper bitterness, bit of celery. Flavor of light date, watery, light leaf, bubblegum esters. Not my thing.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with brown highlights and a small, off-white head.
Nose shows cocoa and chocolate with little else noticeable, although some roasted coffee is present later. Citrus is barely noticeable.
Flavours mainly focus on plain roasted malt, with some very faint coffee in the background. Again, very little citrus.
Body feels a bit watery.
Seems like a schwarzbier.
