COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Meaning "rye bread" in Danish, we took our inspiration for this beer from the Danes’ staple dark, whole-grain rye bread. Brewed with three types of rye malt, this robust brown ale showcases the earthy, spicy character of the grain, complemented by bready, nutty barley malts and a hint of roast. Loosely based on the Scandinavian Christmas beer or "Julebryg" tradition, this beer is perfect for the colder weather of winter, although it will be available year-round (because who doesn’t love a dark beer now and again, regardless of weather?) And don’t worry about the name, we can’t pronounce it either! But we do have a video of us and a lot of others trying our best at it.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours a reddish amber with floating impurities and an off-white head. Nutty aroma, some burned caramel. Overly carbonated, comes gushing for a long, long time. Medium body, lots of hard roasted malt - kinda Brown aleish. Dryish, hoppy finish. Simply way too carbonated. 080210

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
What is this? A deep red beer with a huge over carbonated tan head, how come it is so over carbonated? infection - definately not a Danish style! The aroma has notes of burnt caramel and spices. The flavor is sweet with notes or roasted malt, spices and an off-note.

Bottle. Caramel brown color, with a lot of beige head. Aroma is pit fruit, dark belgian malt and yeast. Flavor is the same, brown sugar, spicy rye, maybe some chocolate, and yeast. Pretty complex flavor in this one, and an interesting beer.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Aroma is lightly tart and rye spiced, like pumpernickel. Vigorous carbonation with a super rich mouth-feel. Flavor delivers more rye spiciness and some cocoa powder.

750 ml bottle.Initial pour was a sunburnt orange brown while the bottom of the bottle turned into a mrky muddy milk chocolate brown. The head constantly changed and started off beyond huge and frothy, changed to an average sized head comprised of large bubbles and finished tight and foamy, all the while being a light beige. The aroma was far more chocolate and sugary then I was expecting. Some fruity notes, motsly green apple, and spices come out towards the end. The body was full, thick and syrupy along with extra lively carbonation and lots of foaminess. The flavor was chcocolate and sugar dominant along with some obvious spice, I’m assuming that was the rye. Interesting beer despite it not being as rye forward as other rye beers I have had. Worth finding a bottle or two.
