Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a cloudy opaque black with a light brown head. Sweet roasty nose, lots of raisins up there too, almost rummy. Solid body, sweet roast, but the dark dried fruits dominate, lots of dark chocolate - even marzipan and cherry, all stuff you wouldn’t really expect in an Imperial Stout. But this is....different. Roasty finish with quite some warming alcohol. Very enjoyable. 030312
