Hey my 50th German rate, happy to share with rate beer NYC crew at fruity cologne event at spuyten. Pours black with nice head. Nose of raisins, smoke, and grains. Tastes of raisins, plums, licorice, smoke and ash, malt, and the rye adds nice spice kick. Medium bodied and not very imperial tasting. But overall interesting and tasty.

Bottle from Mikkeller Shop, Stefansgade, Copenhagen; bb 30-07-2014
Black color with generous creamy brown head. Some aroma of dark malts and maybe cardboard. Smooth mouthfeel, rather dry; roasted malt flavor, a bit of ashes, some cardboard and liquorice; correct bitterness; in the final there is an impression of apples.
I dont think this is well brewed.

Fruity yet dark malts, white chocolate, basement aromas, light funky even. Not very imperial maybe but certainly unique. Sweet malts, bitter ending, fruity, dry. Like a bock with more hops and drier. I like it though, quite original. (33cl bottle from trade with Koelschtrinker)
