Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Reddish brown - almost Kriek colour. Hazy with a nice, creamy, off-white head. Incredibly lovely and very delicate nose - aromas of coconut! Delicious, lightly vinous and dry with a touch of acid. Good full body and very, very delicate. Jolly Pumpkin uses open fermentation which might explain the acidity, and they let their beer age on oak which explains the obvious notes of Bourbon and/or Rioje red wine. Yummy indeed. But a "Bire de Garde"?? Not really, this is far better. 240705

Strong aroma. Very pleasant. Almost like sherry. Totally cool label with a pirate cat! Powerful flavor, warming effect. I wouldnt mind drinking this in front of a fire place in winter time.

One of the best beers Ive had in a long time. Elegant, distinctive, very drinkable and even a cute label to boot. Cant wait to try more of the Jolly Pumpkins offerings. Great stuff!

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Deep amber color, almost brown, tan head. Interesting, malty, spicy, mild funk, anise. Medium bodied, somewhat alcoholic, especially for only being 7.2%. Kind of a strange beer, but I dug it for the most part.

Pours hazy orange/red with a short off white head. Interesting nose of rubbing alcohol, toast and nut. Chocolate, brown bread, toasted grain, burnt caramel in the back of the mouth, and some toasted butter. Really quite warming. Nice.
