Bottled from growler, thanks hopsrus!!
Black, not much head. Tarry aroma. Overwhelmingly velvetty soft maltiness. Richly fruity and chocolatey. Well balanced sweetness and a salty, bitter finish. Possibly the best porter I've ever had!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2006
(Bottle 65 cl) Completely black and opaque with a handsome and frothy, light brown head - sort of shaving foam style. Aroma of roasted malt and vanilla. Fairly light body with notes of lightly burned malt and also vanilla in the flavour. Dry, burned, lightly bitter finish. Pleasant. 061006

Made with Mexican sugar. Dark brown porter with a very frothy tan head. Rich and strong. Subtle chocolate and a dark fruity note. The big frothy head gives a creamy feel but the finish is coffee and hop bitter.
