0,33 l bottle courtesy of Balazs, thanks!
Deep amber-reddish-orange one with a nice foamy tan head. Honey and caramel based aroma with raisins, huge ammount of resin and herbal hops. Nice oily texture, honey and caramel at first, vanilla, raisins. After the first slip the hope bits a big with their own resiny, herbal character, stays in the dry aftertaste. Wow!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow - a perfect blend from these two brews. The beer pours dark amber with a nice head on top. The aroma is sweet, malty, and hoppy, smooth and pleasant in the nose. The flavor is delicious - sweet, juicy, malty, hoppy, and the body is perfectly balanced with all of these flavors. This collaborations is awesome - best Brew Dog beer I think I’ve ever tasted.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: A bit unclear, stable yellowish off-white head with a good lace; piney-hoppy nose with a solid caramelly background, some drops of cough-syrup behind; solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied, soft; warming brandy-like finish with robust hops and a malty tinge. Heavy, well balanced hoppy brew......

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to Pete for picking this bottle up for me from State Line.
Pours a copper-caramel color into my tulip. Single-finger white head quickly dissipates and leaves a few bubbles atop the brew. Not much lacing. Nose is some light citrus and floral hops with a few tropical notes. Definitely some sweetened malt in the background. Really faint.
Taste brings a pretty good dose of bitterness as well as a bit of green-hop heat, although I don’t believe this uses fresh hops. Crosses over into some booze. Slight caramel and toffee base. The feel is a bit boozy with a pretty good amount of bitterness. A very dry finish and a bit of cardboard shows up after the swallow. A bit off.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. A dark copper coloured beer with a big white head. A massive hoppy nose with big grapefruit notes. A large body with again lots of citrussy hops. The malts give some balancing sweetness. Not a lot different to regular hardcore really. Very scrummy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma consist of orange. Has a very strong floral nose. The malt aroma is nonexistent because of the hops. The appearance is a cloudy with a thin white head and spiderweb lacing. Has an orange-red color to it. The flavor is a very hoppy. This is a full-bodied beer with a somewhat creamy texture that finishes rather long. Mikkeller is becoming one of my favorite beers. Have not been dissappointed by any of the ones i have tried.
