jmgreenuk (4258) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2013
Tap at The Mikkeller Bar. Poured a dark mahogany colour with and orange hue. The aroma is rich fruity and alcoholic. The flavour is rich bitter and with an oily texture. There is lots of alcohol based liqourice but it doesn’t dominate. A truly awesome beer, but I’d prefer a lower ABV so I could drink more of it!
