Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of JohnC. Pours an opaque dark brown with a small beige head. Sweet oaky nose with quite some booze shining through. Surprisingly only medium-bodied, sweet roast, pecan, loads of oak, dark dried fruit, chocolate - no surprise - and sweet vanilla. Roaring alcohol finish. However I expected this to be thicker and cloying, but it ain’t - still I couldn’t drink an awful lot of it. But delicious alright. Very sophisticated. 220312

Opaque black - brown beer. Small dark tan head. Nice chocolate nose! Crispy palate, semi dry. Rich chocolate! A mixture of dark chocolate but with a good dose of mild chocolate. Brandy like alcohol underneath provides mild warmth and dryness. Left some aside for a week and the alcohol really calmed down leaving a lovely chocolate that tastes like a fine bar of Green and Blacks!

Thanks to Ken for sharing this one ... chocolate roast malt nose ... hint of prune ... but most deep dark chocolate ... big boozy front ... sweet chocolate linger ... rich spicyness ... little warming alcohol on tounge ... light bourboness ... too much boozyness in linger ... light vanilla ... soft chocolate ... very nice but too much bourbon still just like the black tue
