TheBeerGod (5329) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Bottle - gift courtesy of my friend Noel. Dark cola colored brown with a tall, fluffy tan head. Aroma is strong wood notes, smoked cedar, and faint vanilla. Taste is chocolate covered cherries, peat, oak, roasted malt and vanilla notes. Body is light-medium with soft, creamy carbonation. Ends with more chocolate covered cherries, wet oak, smoked malt, peat/iodine and soft vanilla.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Appearance: pours smoky brown under a voluminous tan head which fades slow and blotchy. Swirls creamy like whipped chocolate mousse.
Nose: smoke, vanilla, caramel, chocolate nougat, and bourbon in the back. Rich. Smoke all around. Melting caramel and vanilla. Tannins in the nose.
Palate: unfortunately much thinner than the nose implied with an unexpected tannic tartness leading the way – cherry skins and leather. Smoke, plums, and tart cherries. Leather and old wood in the finish. Sides of cheeks tingle. Peaty meaty bacony smoky middle with a weak beginning and a weak finish.
Final Thoughts: the nose was amazing but unfortunately the palate didn’t really measure up. Not bad but definitely not great – just alright.

Very unique brew here. Smokey, yet somewhat sweet from the vanilla with a faint tartness of black cherry.

jesperhammer (3048) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2012
03-JUN-2012, bottle @Papsø tasting. Dark, dark brown with low tan head. Fruity nose, dark malts, a little roast. Very faint smoke. Overwhelming vanilla taste. Really too much. Perhaps a little smoke. Some tartness - infected? More and more roasted and porter-like as it warms. Strange.

Ungstrup (29802) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2012
Bottled. A dark brown beer with a thin lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of smoke, whiskey, roasted malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of vanilla, smoke, whiskey, and caramel, leading to a dry alcoholic finish.

yespr (31769) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2012
12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and golden deep amber with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malty and light caramelish. Vanilla, roasted malty and citric sour. Smoked and light tarish. Vanilla and citric finish. Very strange, yet not offensive.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2012
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a clear orangey brown with a creamy, light brown head. Aroma has roast, subtle oak and even subtler smoke. Medium body, the lactic acidity hits you straight away revealing that this clearly suffers from a bad infection. Same notes as in the aroma are here: roast, ashes smoke and oak with a vanilla whiff, it’s just all overpowered by the sourness. Ends dryish and ashy. Shame. 030612

burg326 (3863) - Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2012
12 ounce bottle, pours a dark brown, aromas of chocolate, vanilla, some oak, light smoke, and light booze. Flavors are the same, blended nicely, not overly sweet, and a little thin for me to be a porter.
