Editor’s note: Previously brewed by Djævlebryg at Brøckhouse, Hillerød, Denmark.

English: Mystikale is a top-fermented red-brown beer inspired by Sottish as well as Danish brewing traditions. Mystikale is brewed with 6 different spices, among others liqourice root and hip shell, which give the beer a complex and intriguing taste. Mystikale goes very well with traditional Danish lunch and spiced poultry dishes.

Dark red colored, fastly vanishing yellow head. Cloudy appearance. Cardamoom dominates in christmassy aroma, berries, licorice and some sweet caramel also there. Medium bodied, obvious carbonation. Flavor has again this traditional Danish-hoppiness, which somehow reminds me of spinach :) Cardamoom, caramel and licoreice also there in good balace, aftertaste has berries with mildly drying touch.

bierkoning (12589) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2007
Bottle. Sparkling brown color. Ginger and red berries in the aroma. Ginger in the sweetish, rather herbal flavor, again with red berries. Rather grainy. Drinkable.

Beneath the swiftly vanishing foam, a slight body. Behind the deep copper, one-dimensional cilantro spray. I was looking immensely forward to this brew after sampling their rather nice stout, but find little to be enthusiastic about with Mystikale. There’s also something odd about the carbonation and the way the bubbles fizzle out -- did they hire Carlsberg to do this part for them? Not well made, back to the drawing board.

This is an eccentric; The brewer told me they had been inspred by Scottish ale and indeed I can feel northern heath in this beer; The taste is complex and very interesting; It is definetely worth a try and I will be looking forward to drink it again.

Muddy orange, brown colour with a tan head. Roasted malty aroma with a spicy note and hints of liqourice. Roasted malty flavor with a light coffee note and a dry, spicy finish.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2007
Dark amber with a nice, creamy head. The aroma has notes of caramel and anise. The flavour is spicy, and anise is the dominant spice. But I also find notes of peat, earth, smoke, caramel and light sweetness and bitterness. A nice and "different" beer. 1818

In deed a mystic ale. Reddish colour with brown medium head. Aroma dominated by rosmary and licorice. Very dominating. In the long run it makes the beer a little unbalanced. Taste as well dominated by rosmary and licorice. Quite dry finish. It reminds me quite a bit of Esrom Kloster from Brøckhouse, but I prefer the latter. Anyway it´s special, so give it a try.
