Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Bomber- pours a deep hazy orange/copper with a smallish head- lasts a bit. Aroma is citrusy, grassy, tons of thick sweet honey, very sweet toffee, big bready malts, toast, and some alcohol heat. Flavor is fruity- pear and peach, hoppy, earthy grassy orange zest, Belgian phenolics and bit fruity esters- light apple as well- huge honey sweetness, syrupy, bready and doughy pils and pale malts. Alcohol is apparent, but lots going on- not too bad.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle:   Caramel in color, slight ruby hue, hazy, small spritzy off-white head, dies quickly, sparce lacing.   Heavy Tripelesque like aroma, bready, slight biscuit, dull floral aspects.   Fairly similar on the tongue.   Wow, this one is really really meaty.   It is very viscous and thick.   Warming but not alcoholic.   Sweet, quite sweet, almost over the top.   Body and mouthfeel are quite big.   Thick and syrupy on the finish, warming, very warming.   This is very much like an Imperial Tripel or something.   Could be hard to finish for most, but not for this pro.   Finishes very much like a high octane kick in he nutz.   This one is pretty much just over the top.   Its like a Belgian Tripel on steroids.   Many thanks to JPDIPSO for the bottle!

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2009
bomber - thanks TAR!! slight pop and pours murky dark orange; very abrasive with heavy booze in the nose and flavor; mixed with oranges, grain, lemons and booze; overly strong and boozy; did I say boozy? the fact that I still drank the whole thin by myself on a wednesday night is proof of my drinking problem

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - SEP 27, 2009
22oz bottle from shawnm213, thanks for knocking this off my want list after along time on it. Rating #255. Dark orange color, with a kind of dull glow to it. Very potent and rich aroma, very heavy duty. Sweet, big grain flavor, really hard to describe and not nearly as hot as I though it would be. 񡹴)

daknole (8537) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 24, 2009
Finally I got to try it! Thanks to ogglethorp. Pours an amber color with a beige head. Aroma is spicy, yeasty, fruit and some alcohol. Big huge beer, tons of spice and some caramel and brown sugar notes. A bit too hot. I think this one would age nicely.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 14, 2009

Source:22 oz bottle shared at a tasting in Nashville.
Glass:Taster.
Appearance:Hazy deep gold pour with a one finger off white head.
Aroma:Rotten dark fruits and yeast. Bread dough as well.
Flavor:Yeast and dark fruits dominate with a defined alcohol presence.
Palate:Full body with soft carbonation.
Overall:This was an excellent beer. With Pannepot opened at the tasting, it took a back seat, but still very good.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2009
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of MaltOMeal. Hazy amber golden with an off-white head. Aroma of overripe fruit and a little yeast. Quite full-bodied, a little low in carbonation, sweetish overripe fruit - almost syrupy - with delicious Sherry accents. The finish is alcoholic with hardly any hop presence. Really, this is a Quad all over. 290509

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2009
Bottled. A hazy deep red beer with an orangey head. The aroma is sweet with notes of hops, grass, and grapefruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, hops, grass, and over ripe fruits. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2009
Blind tasting at Papss
Hazy orange-amber color. Sweet aroma, fruity caramel (Belgian style), with oak sweetness and light vanilla; persistent; later, a bit alcoholic. Good body, mainly due to a sweet caramel flavor, with malt, some fruitness (peaches, tangerines and sweet oranges), good bitterness, but too much alcohol at the end. Confused, but good.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2009
#17 Bottle. [Papso Shady blind Tasting 2009] Small beige bubbly head that mostly diminished. Spare display of lacework. Light cloudy amber color. Aroma of dried fruit, yeast, nutty, malty molasses, warming alcohol. Full bodied with an average carbonation and somewhat thick alcoholic texture. Heavy sweet flavor. Lingering raisin and dates finish. Felt more like a Quart at the time of tasting it even this was a blind tasting. 8 / 4 / 9 / 4 / 17 = 4.2
