Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Steasy66. Vintage 2012. Pours a pitch black with a small light brown head. Lovely oaky nose, more oaky than sweet bourbonish. Medium body, dark roast, loads of dark dried fruit and a subtle oaky edge. Has a slightly tart edge to it but doesn’t appear infected - more like a roasty tartness. 140712

Pitch black color, oily. Wonderful aroma, rich chocolate, roasted nuts, tobacco, leather, a hint of smoke and vanilla, phenol; powerful and persistent. Thick body, the mouthfeel is quite oily; strong flavor of chocolate and roasted malt, with an evident presence of liquorice; strong vanilla too, from the oak; some molasses; it’s not very sweet, the body is thinner in the end, when the alcohol is stronger, warming; roasted nuts final; if just one thing, the liquorice is too strong.
Chaotic but excellent.

mcberko (19869) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2013
Growler, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff!), pours jet black with a small brown head - beautiful looking. Nose is luxurious, full of oak barrels, wood, high quality dark chocolate, roasted malt and a little vanilla. Flavour is remarkably complex and luxurious, with velvety chocolate, moderate wood, a bit of vanilla, and great use of the oak barrels. The woody oak notes are what is left lingering, along with some melted dark chocolate. Palate is velvety, as noted, with amazing complexity. The oak barrels are used perfectly, neither dominating nor barely noticeably - perfectly situated amongst everything going on. Carbonation is soft and well-suited for the flavour profile. An absolutely wonderful barrel-aged impie that lives up to its hype.
