Definitely not your Dad’s Wimpy 30 weight. An enormous & luscious dark ale that’s as opaque and dark as the most well used motor oils.

yespr (40453) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2007
From bottle, blind tasting at Papsoes - beer no 10. Pours black with a red hue and a lacing light brown head. Vanilla and chocolate aroma. Flavour holds a decent liqourice flavour to the smooth chocolate and mild vanilla. Finish has a persisting chocolate smoothness. No bitterness from hops, perhaps some from the roasted coffee notes.

Ungstrup (34350) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2007 Bottled. A pitch black and somewhat murky beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is acidic with notes of vegetables combined with chocolate. The flavor is like slightly acidic chocolate sludge combined with notes of grapefruits, leading to an end with a slight alcohol burn. The body is thick.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2009
Bottled@Konttori, Tampere. Pitch black colour, nt much head (the small there is is brown). Aroma is liquorice, caramel malts, some alcohol, coffee and also some dark berries. Very sweetish aroma. Flavour is liquorice, some roasted malts as well as caramel malts and a bit of old coffee. Feels more like a stout/porter than American Strong Ale.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of Degarth. Cloudy, dark brown - close to black - with an off-white head. Woody, bourbon-like aroma with hard roasted malts. Quite full-bodied, hard roasted malt accents - almost burned - with bourbon accents and a bitter finish. There’s an ashy twist also. Still incredibly yummy. 021107

Bottled, thanks cquiroga! Dark black, minimal head. Tarry nose. Very swet and thick with lots of molasses, burnt roasty malt and oily syrup. Very full bodied with salty rye bread and tarry finish. Hugely flavourful, but a bit rough.

Bottle at home Huge thanks to the Cheesman. Opened today since hes the DD. Deep solid black ... roast malts and a hint of spirit that must be the bourbon ... good mouth feel ... rich Malts ... cocoa and bitter coffee... lacking a bit in its finnish ... bourbon shows too much for me over time.
