Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2009
On tap. Pours a cloudy and completely opaque dark brown with an off-white head. Fat notes of aroma hops in the nose. Quite full-bodied, roasted malt accents, some coffee in the fore but then the American aroma hops really take over leaving a distinct bitterness. This is serious stuff! 250809
