COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An imperial sweet stout brewed with cherries and cacao nibs, which is then aged in bourbon barrels. This beer is brewed in collaboration with Mikkeller our generous friend from Copenhagen, Denmark. What you have here is a modest attempt to emulate the experience of biting into a chocolate-covered cherry candy. We hope you enjoy it but you never know what you’re gonna get.

Tap på Mikkeller bar Viktoriagade. Svart. Doft av alkohol, russin och tung bourbon. Flytande choklad med alkohol. Lite väl spritig för min smak. Viss sötma.

hombrepalo (1824) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Sampled at DLD 2014, thanks! A black beer with a rim of dark brown head. The aroma has notes of chocolate, roasted malt, and alcohol. The flavor is overly sweet with notes of chocolate, roasted malt, alcohol, and exotic fruits. A bit too hot and sweet for my liking.

Bottle kindly shared by kermis at the CMLSG14 cellar tasting. Overall a well balanced beer in bot aromas (roasted malts, chocolate, sweet coffee) and taste (chocolate cake with cassis and cherries). Definite like.
