Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Beautiful, clear dark amber with an off-white head. Aroma of cherries and alcohol. Rather solid body with a warming alcohol, lightly spicy and with the cherries popping up again in the flavour. Even without any real hoppiness this manages to remain harmonious and very drinkable. 060706

bottle thanks to fyrecrakker05. Pours a very clear, reddish brown color with no head or lacing. Aroma is slightly spicy with warm molasses/carmel hints. Flavor is good and slightly malty with a definite presence of warm molasses and a definite spice presence and bubbly on the palate. Very enjoyable beer

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2006 Re-rate, Dec 2006: Much more impressive than earlier versions, this one had a substantial cherry and light nut/banana malt background. Spicing was present, cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander, but it wasn’t overdone. At 11%, this thing will sneak up and get ya, man it was smooth for that high of alcohol content. Much better than whatever they did the last two years. Bumping up the numbers (minus appearance) for sure. Original rating(s): Wow, quite a let down, only interesting for its uniqueness. The pour was ruby red, but completely flat, no head, no lacing, nothing - a complete miss within the style. The aroma was slightly yeasty with some light spicing. The primary flavor was too sweet (just like their doppelbock) and a mix between a belgian and an oktoberfest or pumpkin ale... Significant cinnamon and nutmeg. A cardboardy aftertaste with a touch of hops to lightly bitter things. I had to go back to the bottle to verify that this thing was 11%ABV when I went to rate it. Never noticed it in the flavor or aroma. The mouthfeel was rather thin for the style. Resampled one year aged version (2004) in Nov. ’05... very much the same, no head, and the aging didn’t change the flavor profile. Still nice stuff.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 6, 2006
Deep red color with a thin white head that diminishes to film. Light cherry in the aroma but plenty of honey. Tart cherries really take over in the flavor. Low carbonation. Light alcohol burn at the finish. Pretty easy to drink for 11% ABV.

A great holiday party beer. It looks great with a bright red color and a small head. I has a great flavor, not too hoppy, but very fruity and sweet. It has a fairly high alcohol content, but it doesn’t taste like it. A couple of these will catch up with you!

pivo (2660) - GERMANY - MAY 27, 2006
Light berry nose, ruddy pale amber color, low tight head. Honey sweet malt, fruity and berry notes. Light spice end. Thin body for such a big beer. Smooth. Nice.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2006
Clear reddish/copper with a weak white head. Some notes of yeast, cherry, nutmeg, malt, alcohol. Medium body with a trace of syrup in the mouth. Starts off spicy and potent and then the fruit sweetness emerges towards the end. An interesting beer.
