Danish: Et bryg med rødder i 1800 tallets engelske og irske eksport stouts, der blev brygget med en højere alkoholprocent og blandt andet derfor vandt popularitet på så eksotiske steder som De Vestindiske Øer, Afrika og i dele af Asien.
Vores udgave er blandt andet brygget med brown malt, der var en almindelig ingrediens på den tid, da en stout var den stærkeste udgave af en porter. Sammen med ristet byg, chokolade malt og sort malt er det med til at give stouten dens sammensatte ristede karakter med noter af kaffe og bitter chokolade. Øllet får sødme fra 2 slags karamelmalt. Som modspil og til at afrunde maltkarakteren er brugt en klassisk engelsk humle. For at tilføje stouten et strejf af jul er den krydret med appelsin, kanel og mørkt rørsukker.

Papsoe (25075) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of chrisv10. Pours an opaque black with a lovely creamy and lacing beige head. Sweet hard roast nose with quite some vanilla. Solid body, roasty indeed but also some chewy dried dark fruits. A little late ashes. Subdued malty bitterness. Fortunately the spices are very downplayed. 261111

Bottle. Looking really pretty in the glass this one, with its finger-thick tan head and jet black body. It smells nice too, chocolate, roasted malts and some coffee. A touch of licorice and ashtray too. The flavor is lighlty burnt, with chocolate, coffee, some licorice and enough sweetness to make it drinkable. Full-bodied, smooth and semi-sweet. Lasting finish. Hides the alcohol weel. I’d like more hops detectable in this one, else it’s a really nice beer. 111126

Nice black color, with an cremy chocolade form on top, it is a heavy beer for the christmas food but good to desserts. I will buy it again

Bottle, bought @ SuperBest, Christiansfeld.
Pours deep nut-brown with a big, firm, creamy, beige head. Aroma has esters, roasted malts, chocolate, light coriander and some cinnamon. Medium, kinda lively mouthfeel, okay dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of roasted malts, light chocolate sweetness, light cinnamon. Long, lingering malty bitter finish. Very dry finish, really.
