Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2011
On tap. Murky opaque dark brown with a small off-white head. Roasty nose but also rather distinct and boozy whisky aroma, doesn’t really appear like Bourbon though. Solid body, low carbonation, heavily roasted bordering burned malt, some vanilla and again massively boozy whisky in the finish. A bit much. 260511

Bottle # 198 of 374 @ run to 10k session. Rating # 10.000! As I have finally learned to appreciate bourbon barrelled imperial stouts it had to be one of those, since I have done my share of downratings of those. Nice head with good duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are roast malt, bitter chocolate, fruits, vanilla, coffee and hops. Dry finish with some alcohol present.
