Cervezon probado en el bar de mikkeller, con un olor impresionante y un sabor el cual al principio parece un poco fuerte, pero que según avanza es más y más deliciosa. Volveré a probarlo sin lugar a dudas.

Aroma: liquorice, Laurate Nobilis, dark fruit, roasted malt, soy, chocolate , a hint of coffee,sweet molasses Quite complex.
Taste: Taste is quite Dark following the aroma: heavy sweet and moderate bitterness. Liquorice, with some dark fruit, soy, roasted malts, chocolate. Huge taste and complexity, Alcohol is very well hidden, Full body, soft carbonation Great complex brew.
A bit different from what I recall from the Mikkeler version. Specially as this one has a decent nice head and seems a bit more fruity.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of dark malt, soy and dark chocolate. The flavor of the coffee, burnt malt and dark fruits. Fairly heavy bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the mouth forever. To be as strong as it was fairly easy to drink. Notably, there was no alcohol odor or taste. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Birthday bottle from Cornelius, thanks to me (the best gifts you need to buy yourself). Pours black with dark brown head, oily texture. 15.2% version. Very strong and sweet aroma. Roasted malts and coffee, sweet vanilla, salted liquorice, light whisky, tobacco, slightly boozy but not much considering what it is. Taste is sweet, salted liquorice, vanilla, strong roasted malts, sweet toffee. This is more liqueur than beer. But it is the beer for special occasions. I may be a bit generous with points today but... Fantastic.
