That’ll be me 20K then @ ChrisO’s. Hazy deep amber beer, small cream colour head. Some light oxidisation on the nose but it burns away fairly quickly. Palate is light and semi dry with reasonable fine carbonation. Smooth caramel malts, dried fruits and ripe fruits. Mild spice. A light and slightly crispy finish. Tasty. Has survived remarkably well. These Fullers old Vintages are a bit stiff price wise but they have clearly been looked after!

Papsoe (25055) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2012
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Bottle # 07111. Pours a clear amber with a small, rough off-white head. Oxidized and lightly fusty aroma with quite some caramel. Rich body, lowish carbonation, caramel and manure, quite some overripe fruit. Warming alcohol finish. Oxidized of course, but still enjoyable - after all these years. 200912

Medium sweet flavour with light earthy bitterness, toasted grains, caramel, toffee. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation and lightly oily texture. Warming finish with moderate earthy bitterness, light ashy tobacco, dried fruits. Nice one. Has aged quite well.
