Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of thagr81_us. Pours an opaque black with a dense and lacing light brown head. Spicy, subtle cedar notes atop some sweet roast. Fairly rich body, sweet roast, subtle peppery cedar accents. No real bitterness. Very different. 131112

"I’m guessing this was released late last summer/early fall, but it’s held up very well. Initial aroma out of the bottle and on first pour is all-spice, pumpkin, dark roast and chocolate. flavor is much the same (at first) with a little lactose to smooth out the mouthfeel. just about everyone really liked this one. As it warms, the cedar becomes more and more the prominent player, adding a layer of complexity not expected. Very nice pumpkin beer, behind only Elysian & Cigar City (which ironically you think you are drinking since they are usually the ones to age on cedar)."

Nice dark pour with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, spice, and bread. Flavor matched aroma.

baraciisch (1975) - California, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Deep black in color with rich tan head... Aroma of smoked malts, intense spice notes, like sniffing autumn... Flavor is sweet lactose initially that gives way to smoked cedar, burnt roasted malts with notes of pumpkin and spices... Smoke is a little much, but definitely enjoyable... Solid per usual from the Bruery ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A: Dark Opaque Hue, Passes No Light, Light Brown Head, Good Lacing S: Strong Cedar, Smoke, Pumpkin T: Smoked Cedar, Sweet Potatoes, Vanilla, Milk Chocolate, Mild Lactose M: Decent Carbonation, Medium To Full Bodied, Mildly Bitter, Somewhat Watery Overall, this beer retains a lot of the cedar flavor and smokiness but it seems like there is too much going on at one time and almost cancels each thing out, way too complex.

BVery (6842) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Tap at the brewpub - should this really be retired if I just bought it today? Very dark thick looking pour with a light brown head. Pumpkin, ginger, lactose, and some spices going on here. This is yummy.

Bottle @ Christers. Pours black with a small light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, strongly spiced, cedar, cinnamon. Flavor is roasted malts, some dark chocolate, dark fruits, cinnamon and other spices, cedar. Medium body, highly overcarbonated. Pretty nice beer, but to spicy and the carbonation is to much. 030713

Bottle @ Aarhus tasting. Black with a brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, chocolate, cedar and rather spicy - Christmas spices. Flavor is quite sweet and moderate bitter. Dry and roasted moderate bitter finish. Why the hell did they have to add all those spices? 030713
