Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2011
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a hazy dark brown with a beige head. Another slow but massive gusher from Alvinne! Lovely sweet aroma of overripe fruit and wood. Medium body, great initial flavours of plums and overripe fruit - kinda Quad-like - but later on comes some plastic and rubbery notes. Quite some hops in here. Warming alcohol finish. A bit messy but lots of good things in there. 180311

Leighton (19503) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle shared at the CBC - Clerkenwell 1st Birthday Party, London. It gushed significantly, FYI. Pours cloudy amber-brown with a large, tan foam head. Big sweet aroma, ceramel and super ripe fruits. Big sweet flavor as well, tons of fruits, among them grapes, assorted berries and plums. Medium to full bodied with super high carbonation. Warming finish with loads of ripe fruits, candied fruits, grapes, cherries, alcohol. It has some nice, mild aged malts and old fruit tones as well. Pretty good, if a touch beastly.
