Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of fiulijn. Pours an opaque black with a small off-white head. Roasty nose, a little cocoa. Medium body, heavy roast and a massive, rough and unsophisticated bitterness with close to no aromatic qualities. Very harsh. Not how I like my IPA’s! 230213 joergen (27983) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2013

650ml bottle Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 29, 2012
Part of the 2012 Tree Brewing feature at the LCBO. I tried this beer on June 12, 2012 after purchasing from the King/Spadina LCBO outlet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer pours a coca-cola black colour with a half inch tan coloured head. The aroma is roasted malt, weak citrusy hops, and coffee. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour is roasted coffee grains, decent citrusy hops, although no strong grapefruit presence. Still, an excellent beer
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2013 Pours an opaque black with a nice brown head that dissipates quickly but leaves some foam across the top and some sticky lace. Aroma is a citrus/floral chocolate, roasted malts and coffee. Taste bitter dark cocoa that transitions into chocolate sweetness that has a very smooth and gradual warming from the 8.8abv and then it throws some citrus hop bitterness on the very end. Very complex and full bodied but not heavy. andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 28, 2012
Pours a very dark brown/black with decent tan head diminishing to a nice sticky ring that laces the glass with a light covering that seems to stick around. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malt, some coffee and light grassy bitterness. Flavour is a mixture of bitter citrus, chocolate, roasted malt and sweetness that blends together quite nicely and for being 8 percent abv its not a boozy beer at all. rederic (3335) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2012

Did not expect this after the abomination of hophead red. A beautiful purely opaque black, huge roasted malts and a sweet chocolate note. Not too hopped up but quite bitter on the finish. Not well balanced but a solid session brew.
