2009-05-16, draught at Københavnske Øldage 2009, 8-5-9-4-17=43
Hazy dark amber color; small creamy head. Nice creamy aroma, very strong: caramel, apples (how?), possibly vanilla. Strong body, caramel flavor with strong alcohol feeling, apples again. Extreme as usual from Mikkeller. I prefer Barley Wines like the Bad Worse, but very enjoyable anyway!

Handbottle, 20 days later, 7-4-9-4-17=41
Hazy brown color. I will say only that it has an excellent caramel flavor, woody, with warming alcohol.

On tap at Copenhagen Beerfestival. It’s an almost clear, orange-golden beer with a minimal sized off-white head. Calvados, or just generic apple-booze dominates the aroma, with some sweetness and alcohol notes. It’s sweet and full-bodied in the mouth, with a lovely alcohol heat, and flavors of apple booze, vanilla, rum raisin, sour apples, some caramel, and a lovely hoppyness in the background. Resiny, warm finish with lots of sweetness and a good bitterness. A lovely one, but I think the Calvados leaves too much flavor and aroma, overpowering the base beer. But lovely anyway. (090516)

From [email protected] Øldage 2009. Deep copper colored with a ring of foam klinging to the glass. Rich and rounded fruit aroma with overipe apples dominating. Refined caramellish malts and alcohol too. Very flavorfull. Bitter-sweet and vinous with a strong, grainy malt body. Rich appely fruitiness in the flavor as well. Notes of wood and toffee. Not very hoppy, but the bittering hops is there to balance. Big body. Thick mouthfeel. Complex, warming finish. Very very nice.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2009
On tap. Almost clear amber golden with a small off-white head. Intense, woody Calvados aroma with some caramel. Very full-bodied, lots of caramel, wood and vanilla with an extremely warming alcohol. Hardly any bitterness. To me the best beer at the recent Copenhagen Beer Festival 2009, and I was glad when the brewer revealed that this is gonna have a bottle release at some point. 160509
