Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Steasy66. Vintage 2012. Pours a pitch black with a small light brown head. Lovely oaky nose, more oaky than sweet bourbonish. Medium body, dark roast, loads of dark dried fruit and a subtle oaky edge. Has a slightly tart edge to it but doesn’t appear infected - more like a roasty tartness. 140712

Pitch black color, oily. Wonderful aroma, rich chocolate, roasted nuts, tobacco, leather, a hint of smoke and vanilla, phenol; powerful and persistent. Thick body, the mouthfeel is quite oily; strong flavor of chocolate and roasted malt, with an evident presence of liquorice; strong vanilla too, from the oak; some molasses; it’s not very sweet, the body is thinner in the end, when the alcohol is stronger, warming; roasted nuts final; if just one thing, the liquorice is too strong.
Chaotic but excellent.

Growler, shared by Nightfall. It pours a black body under a finger-thick tan head. Licorice, roasted malts, soy notes, molasses and alcohol on the nose. It’s full-bodied and warming, sort of sticky sweet, yet dry on the palate. The flavor too is quite intense, with soy sauce notes, molasses and a roasted touch. Lasting finish. Overall, a wonderful beer, but it’s too intense and sweet to be really enjoyable in more than small doses. I think. 110820
