Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2006
(Bottle 65 cl) Black and opaque with a small, beige head. Malty, lightly burned aroma. Medium-bodied with distinct, burned, coffeeish accents and a burned, ashy, bitter finish. Good and well crafted, but just not the most interesting representative of its style. Thanks to Degarth for sharing this. 040406

Bottle. A dark brown beer with a ruby glow, clear, and with a small, beige head. Roasted, chocolate aroma with coffee and some hops. Chocolate, coffee and roasted malt in the flavor too, along with hops giving a pleasant bitterness. Nice carbonation level and medium to full body. The finish is long, roasted and quite bitter. A nice, quaffable beer with nothing special to it, not that it needs to. (080411)

Held to the light, it’s a beautiful ruby red. The chocolate is more bakers than milk. The fine carbonation tickles the tongue - this may be unpasteurized. The coffee is more like dregs than fresh - but the bitter aspects ameliorate the effect. Seems to be an elusive hint of cinnamon that ebbs and flows. Very nice porter. Another great creation from Coast Range - and kudos to whoever developed the recipe.

Bomber poured a clear very dark black with red highlights and a small diminishing brown head. Aromas of coffee, roasted malt and a bit of bitter chocolate. Palate was medium bodied. Flavors of burnt malt, coffee and bakers chocolate with a lingering bitter finish.

Bomber. Thanks, Tever! Jet black. Thick, bubbly tan head that falls to just a film before too long. Humongous coffee and roasty nose. Probably the most coffee-like porter I’ve had. Big coffee on the attack, too, and plenty more throughout the palate. Rich roasts and almonds and a bit of semi sweet chocolate everywhere, but more and more the closer the finish gets. Finish lands dry and nutty and a little puff of hoppy. This is fantastic stuff. Thanks, Tom!

Bomber. Poured quite deep brown with a tall, stately cap of tan head. The aroma was rich, roasty, and indeed robust with baker’s chocolate paired with molasses and well-roasted barley.. just a little pepper and floral accenting the edges.. warm and welcoming. The flavor had deep, almost burnt molasses and dark chocolate at the core with prickly dark fruit, black pepper, and lightly sour coffee bitterness.. long, roasty finish was just the slightest bit stale. Medium-bodied, dry, and very roasty on the palate.. long finish to it. Very good beer!
