mcberko (14659) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
On tap at Redwood Curtain Brewing, pours a deep dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma brings out cocoa, smoked malt, and toasted nuts - also some weird off-flavours here. Flavour is vey cloying and syrupy, with toasted nuts, caramel and syrup. Something wrong here - it’s not a disaster, but this can’t be what was intended. Tastes in no way like a porter or a Belgian beer, with an infected syrupy mess.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2012
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours a very dark brown with a vague whiff of orange and a creamy beige head leaving some lacework. Sweet roasty nose with quite some evident Belgian yeast up there. Medium body, soft carbonation, again sweet roast, minerally and yeasty with a little late licorice. Pretty ok - in spite of the Belgian yeast. 150512

A big 22 oz pour at Cafe Marina in Eureka, CA. Came a dark brown with a big tan head and sticky lacing. Nose is roasted malts with some aromas of chocolate, coffee, nuts, and ripe fruit. The body is medium and the mouthfeel clean and smooth. The flavor is rich with fruit dominating, with some raisins, chocolate and flowers. Finishes lightly bitter. Great.
