38cl, as Mikkeler Special Series ’Calvados Barrel Aged X Imperial Stout’, retired exclusive Danish brew, thx alot to Philip for bringing over this old rarity!, very complex sweet Stout, roasted/alcoholic and slightly fruity/woody, yet not too heavy, balanced, cloudy, nearly no head, very good brew, yet very expensive!, WOW!, ’Happy to see that this masterpiece from Mikkeller aged very well.’

Bottle thanks to somebody, rating from my backlog. The smell is malts, roast, coffee, chocolate, wood, alcohol, and fruits. The look is dark black with really no head. The taste is sweet, charcoal, smoke, alcohol, and wood. Smooth and easy. Great!

Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Session II. Pours dark brown with a frothy brown head. Sugary chocolate aroma, some dark fruits, hints of torched wood. Hugely sweet flavor with more burnt wood, dark sugars, molasses, raisins. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with dark fruit sugars, charred wood, brown sugar, some sweet chocolates. Another super sweet offering from the Mikkeller X range.

Tap @ CBC 2013. The pour’s black with no head. The nose is charred wood. Hints of mint, menthol. Bitter chocolate. Roasted berries. The taste is sweet roasted apple, liqueur-soaked wood. Sweet, thick and hot. Ashy finish. Thick, decadent stuff. A bit sweet, though not nearly as bad as the 2006 in that regard.

brnandersen (1668) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2013
Sample from tap, CBC 2013. Pitch black with a thin, fading tan head. Roasted aroma with rich, roasted and caramel malts, chocolate, coffee, oak, vanilla, alcohol and a hint of tart apples. Taste is heavy sweet. Full body, thick feel, soft carbonation. Finishes slightly bitter with rich, roasted, caramel malts, a tart apple note, which I guess is the calvodos barrel. Excellent and complex.
