Very strange brew. A bit hoppy with some smokeyness. A bit like soda. Not for me.

.5L bottle shared with BeerGestapo and TheCaptain. Dark reddish brown pour with a semi-lasting head. The smell was of toffee, prunes, and a little bit of earth. The taste was similar but also included some plums and just a hint of smoke and the back of the tongue. Sweet and boozy. I think I should have given this one some time in the cellar. As it was it was alright but a year or two and it might be something special.

Skinnyviking (7905) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2009
Bottle. Low but lasting creamy light brown head. Very dark red brown body. Roasted barley malt aroma with coffee caramel prunes, a light touch of smoke and a hint of alcohol. Coffee caramel liquorice flavor with a bit of smoke. Low carbonation. Long aftertaste. Alcohol very well hidden.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2009
Bottle 50 cl. Pours an almost clear amber with a small off-white head. Sweetish caramellish nose. Quite full-bodied, lots of burned caramel. Only a very discreet bitterness. I really need some more hops to counterbalance the massive caramel sweetness. 170509

LilBeerDoctor (3539) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Bottle at PPRBSG09. Pours a cloudy brown. Aroma of sweet malt and light smokiness. Flavor of some smoke (more smoke than smoked meat), lots of sweet malt, and iced tea notes. I was excited for this one, but it let me down. 6/4/6/3/13 (3.2/5)

500ml Bottle: Aroma of fruit, light caramel, hops, slight smoke, slight vanilla, and light roasted malts. Poured brown in color with a tiny, off-white head that disappeared quickly. Cloudy. Not sparkling. Full of small particles throughout. Flavor is lightly sweet and slightly hot. Tastes of slight alcohol, smoke, malts, hops, tar, slight caramel, and slight dried ripe fruits. Medium to full body. Viscous, syrupy texture. Soft carbonation. Alcohol, slight smoke, slight caramel, and slight roasted malt finish. A little too hot.

PilsnerPeter (3030) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle: Deep brown with a wispy head. Aroma mixes some plasticy phenolic notes with a malt presence of caramel, sweet peat and mild woody smoke. Slick mouthfeel- peaty flavor- mildly smoky with a solid caramel chewy body. Has a balancing noble hop variety bitter finish. Not very smoky, but pretty damn tasty.

PPRBSG09 and a Bottle at home. Pours a dark brown body with a tan head. Sweet etoh latent fruit with a subtle rye and smoked malt. Dark chewy smoked malt, meat tenderizer salts, dark chewy etoh latent fruit and oh yeah its 11%, guess this will be my batch one 110K +OT. Cheers.
