The ABV and a strong carbonation makes it ideal for fat fish and

thewolf (12079) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Tuscan Vine, Haderslev. Pours a pretty, clear dark brown-red with a small fizzy head that quickly disappears. Aroma is sweet, quite fruity with some strawberries mixed with caramel. Nice enough mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, lightly spicy with a clear vinious streak to it. There is a nice hoppiness, a slight feeling of cardboard, but not too much. Good caramel sweetness overall. Nice.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Alcohol is 6.9% according to the label. Pours a handsome, clear orangey brown with a somewhat rough, off-white head. Malty aroma with distinct notes of spruce needles. Solid, malty body with lots of sweetish, roasted malt. No real bitterness. OK as such, but not that bockish. 231206
