Tasting at Papsø’s
Black color. The aroma is not fully convincing, because along with some roasted malt there is some cream and cardboard; not bad, but cheap. The dark malts and dark caramel flavor is quite good; there is some dark chocolate and a spicy and peppery touch, with correct bitterness and zesty finish.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
It pours hazy black with a nice thick brown tinted head. A good amount of lacing too. There’s a bit of bitterness to the nose with hints of coffee and a bit of fruitiness. The flavor has few surprises from that, and is dominated by a fairly full on chocolate flavor.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Iron Horse Taproom in DC. Diminishing deep brown mocha head on deep sepia to black. Salty green olive nose with puppy breath oddities. Taste is tangy, salty, briny green olive. Big pimento. Medium lace. Slightly bitten chocolate palate with drying character. Super bitter cocoa finish. Not bad. Not worth $10 a snifter pour though.
