12 fl oz bottle. Pours dark brown to black with a lacing off-white head. Roasted malt, chocolate and hops in an almost perfect blend. Flavour is smooth roasted malt with a mild hops note. Finish is lingering roasted malt, chocolate and mild hoppy with a light bitterness. Very easy to drink and with a nice composition.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Very dark and pretty with a warm, reddish hue. Creamy, dense head and a nose full of roasted malt. Flavour of roasted malt, but not sharp, bitter or burned - this is surprisingly sweet with notes of chocolate. Very high drinkability and accessibility, with strong flavours in spite of a rather light body. 181005

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2009 2008-08-27, draught at Cockney Pub, Århus, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Dark brown color with mahogany shades. Some roasted malt and caramel, medium sweet, not aggressive, but not too complex.

2003-11-05, bottle, 9-5-7-5-16=42
Dark color; beige creamy head. Very nice aroma: malt, roasted malt, coffee, hop, light cardboard, phenol. Dry mouthfeel, but very well balanced. Very good final, quite complex, dominated by the roasted, and then the caramel, the hop, the liquorice.
