Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2012
On tap. Cloudy opaque dark brown with absolutely no head. Fairly subtle aroma, a little overripe fruit and booze. Huge body, low carbonation, plenty of overripe fruit accents, oxidized, herbal and medicinal with a burning alcohol in the finish. A beer that really unfolds from aroma to flavour. Clearly the best offering I’ve had from Uncommon so far. 120512

On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration.
Dark brown beer, opaque. A few lonely tan bubbles. Palate is dry and a little crisp. Dry rich woody notes - no oaky sweetness though. Rich malt. The alcohol is obvious in as much as it is drying as well as warm. All leads to a warm dry finish. An intriguing beer. Although warm it’s doesn’t taste anything like 14.5%. Just a little too dry.

fiulijn (14498) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2014
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Dark color, almost black, with virtually no head. Aroma of dark malts, glue, caramel, phenols. Flavor of caramel with some darker malts, a lot of chemicals, phenol, booze, enough residual sugars; some chocolate flavor, and quite sweet overall; it has a correct (or strong?) bitterness and some alcohol in the final. Unrefined and inelegant cowboy brew.
It could score high because of its strength and bold statements, or low because of its chaotic way.
