Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 3, 2012
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head. The nose is all sweet and lovely Cognac and sticky toffee with surprisingly well hidden booze. Solid body, lowish carbonation, sweet caramel and again lots of Cognac flavours. Not so much of a wood character really but somewhat minerally. The booze really builds up towards the finish. A wonderful sipper. The barrel has really tamed this monster of a beer. 030412

Very hazy amber beer, tidy off white head. Removing th cap gives a lovely nose of aged Port wine and toffee. Pouring the beer brings an unwelcome niff of blue cheese. Palate is smooth and dry with fine carbonation. Smooth malt with dry cream. Caramel - toffee and wood, slightly aged tasting, again as if from a fine old Port. A little spice but not much alcohol heat. Blue cheese follows the nose. Sweetish dried fruits, well buried. Dry finish. If not for the blue cheese this could be great.

9th March 2014
The bottle has been open all night and day. It now pours far less hazy and all the blue cheese aromas and flavours are gone. Emphasis is now on lovely toffee malt, mellow cognac and wood. Little dried fruits. Lovely!
