COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

henrikb (1260) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2007
Draft - Dark red amber body, VERY creamy beige head; Very fruity spicy nose, deep but not really fitting (to a beer); Soft texture and carbonation, slightly sweet and juniper harsh; Juniper aroma in finish mixed with some malty sweetness. Strange and not at all my kind of beer.

Svesse (6967) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2007
(Draught at Plan B, Copenhagen, 3 Aug 2007) Dark amber colour with frothy beige head. Malty, spicy nose with lots of spices, liquorice and something bittersweet (sweet gale, sloe, juniper?). Malty, spicy taste with dark fruit, liquorice and ... sweet gale? Rather sweet. The spices get a bit overpowering, but i can’t help liking it. Strange but nice.

jakoblinaa (13) - Aarhus N., DENMARK - SEP 3, 2007
A special beer. really spicy, lot of herbs. Reminds you almost of Christmas glögg or mulled wine. Somehow bittersweet and sour at the same time. Nice dark amber colour.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2007
0.5 l bottle. Reddish amber color. Sweetish aroma with star anise, licorice, cola, vanilla, toffee and some alcohol. Malty and cola-like flavor with heavy taste of anis, licorice and ginger.

Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2007, 2007-05-11, 5-3-6-3-11=28
Amber color with red hue. Herbal aroma (mint…). Medum body, maybe some malt, honey, but nothing special.

Draught at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen, 2007-03-16, 6-3-6-3-13=31
Dark amber to mahogany color; poor head. Light herbal aroma, similar to heather. Medium malty body, some sweetness, caramel, herbs and traces of liquorice. Quite high ending bitterness. Not bad, balanced, but I don’t see the interest in herbal Ales.

stouby (4109) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2007
Bottle at home. Brown with a creamy light brown head. Aroma moderate/heavy malt and hoppy, heavy spicy (ginger, cinnamon). Flavor moderate sweet, heavy spicy. Light/medium body. Definitely not a favourite.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2007
On tap@Lord Nelson, Copenhagen. Thin khaki head over a slight unclear deep amber, soft carbonatied body. Spicy aroma. Notes of plums, rum and medicine. Taste is light sweet malty and spicy. Low hopbitterness. Light to medium body. Short sweetish and spicy finish. Enjoyable, but a bit unbalanced.

Dedollewaitor (14811) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2007
Tap, Lord nelson: Amber with off white head. Malty & very spicy overall. Cinnamon & earbal like. Not my favorite style personally, but good experience!

pivo (2641) - GERMANY - JUN 30, 2007
Complex nose with notes of berries and fruit along with a whiff of cracked grains. Lovely deep auburn color and low head. Syrupy sweetness is balanced by a nutty middle and then a dry woody end. Some hops, but subdued and well blended. There is a light whiff of alcohol in the nose after the swallow, though not strong or overpowering. Well done. Thanks for this, Eric!

unibaren (157) - 8000 Århus C, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2007
Bottle: fresh aroma with hints of caramel, honey and a dash of boiled vegetables. Amber colour with lots of carbonation and average head. Complex - and slightly uneven - flavour with caramel malt, spices and some sourness to compliment the restrained hops bitterness. Mouth feel is slightly dry with a long lasting aftertaste. A good beer.
