yespr (48207) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2007
From bottle, no 11 at Papsoes blindtasting. Pours hazy and amber with a fully diminished off-white head. Dry malty and breadish aroma. Flavour holds a slight sweetness and strong flavours of dried fruit. Has a mild malty chocolate smoothness into the finish. This keeps lingering on top of the mild breadish notes. Nice.

Bottled. A slightly hazy amber beer with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet with notes of over ripe fruits as well as metallic notes of alcohol. The flavor is slightly acidic with notes of brettanomyces, metallic alcohol, berries and lighter notes of caramel and over ripe fruits, leading to a dry bitter and alcoholic finish.

Koelschtrinker (21844) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Dieses Bier kann man in einem Wort beschreiben: Malz. Von Anfag bis Ende ein lockerer, ausgeglichener Malzgeschmack. Den Alkoholgehalt schmeckt man zum Ende hin leicht heraus. Zudem ist es raltiv süffig. Lässt sich schön trinken!
Test vom 24.5.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,10,10,8,10,10 - 9,60

2007-11-30, Papsø’s Blind Tasting
Hazy amber color. Aroma of chocolate and of mature malt. Medium-thick body, strong caramel flavor, a hint of hay and honey, quite sweet. Not bad, but somehow not impressive.

500ml bottle (HBF2011)

6 Mustardy aroma, initially heavy and sticky.

4 Deep orange-red-brown, brief head.

7 Fairly hoppy, but mostly sweetish malts. Rich esters in the retronasals.

4 Sweet smooth palate, soft carbonation. Some gently noble hoppiness in the finish.

14 Goes down so easily - almost feels sessionable.
