gyllenbock (4657) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2012
Bottle at Mikkeller Bar, November 2012. A bit hazy dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma and taste of licorice, whisky, chocolate, some earth and fruit. Smooth mouth feel. A tasty one with a bitter finish.

Lowenbrau (1948) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle. Nice dark amber colour, with persistent tan head, creamy. Medium body, average to low carbonation. Aggresive bitternes, matured and balanced, but enjoyable.

garza (568) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - SEP 27, 2012
Pours a dark brown colour with a beige faint head. Aroma full of caramel, raw sugar, maybe honey and some fruity notes. Complex flavour with wood notes, vanilla, spices and a hint of fresh berries. Medium sweetness, medium bitterness. Full body, sticky mouthfeel, soft carbonation and a dry bitter finish. Excelent brew, but Im missing all the IBUs here. I was expecting more bitterness. Still very good and special choice.

daje (2450) - NORWAY - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle shared at beer tasting. Dark brown, big beige head. Aroma of pine, citrus and caramel. Taste is sweet with lots of caramel, some wood, and hops. Neither as good or as hoppy as the regular edition I think. The probably high bitterness is camouflaged by the heavy amounts of sweetness.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2012
At a beer festival in Melbourne, Aus. Deep amber body with a fine beige head. Powerful aroma that lept from the glass. Seriously bitter....aggressively so. The length of flavour is impressive with many variants along the way. Lovely and challenging all at the same time.

Martinus (2818) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2012
Clear brown colour, reddish hue, beige head. Malty aroma, wood and vanilla, caramel and subdued fruity hop notes. Madeira sweet flavour, malts, dark chocolate, caramel and coffee. Finish chocolate, coffee, light sour notes, caramel, and quite a bitter finish.
The hops bitterness seems to be quite mellowed by the barrel aging, but still a nice beer in its own right.

Thx. to Beerdrifter // 375 ml wrapped bottle sampled @ RBBSG 2012 // nice presentation // final 1000 version to try // murky copper amber, surprisingly dark, much darker than expected given the original one, very interesting, not much in the way of the head // nose is filled with a thick layer of malts, caramel, tad molasses, heavy on sweet malts, wood with a layer of pine hops buried underneath but the sweetness buries them. not hoppy // thick malts flavours, caramel, toffee, tad molasses, light bitter, pine resin buried underneath, rounded by wood, touches of bitter hops pupping up in the back, brown sugar with a touch of whiskey in the finish // softer carb. thicker body // surprisingly different from the original, original brew, interesting and yummy stuff

750 cl bottle bought @ Mikkeller bar in Copenhagen. Bagged and corked. Usual impressive Mikkeller artwork abounds. Pours a dark maroon with no head or carbonation present. The aroma croaks "barleywine" not IPA. The beer is complex, too complex. So many flavors crowding together, fighting for dominance. My wife, who does not drink beer, but always gives it a whiff stated "That smells like booze, not an IPA". The beer was oily and heavy to my palate. High octane raisin notes were very present. I hate raisins but love Mikkeller. This is the first dud that I have experienced from these guys. Not my favorite.
