Cloudy light brown/dark orange on tap. It’s like drinking sandpaper (in the best possible way). You feel like peeling off the inside of your mouth (it’s bitter from start to finish, surprise!) but you enjoyed the experience. Aroma is citrus and floral I suppose, but most of all, it’s just really bitter. An experience.

Ça sent évidemment les houblons mais jamais à l’aveugle je n’aurais détecté que cette bière se veut en fait un concentré d’amertûme. Je dirais même que l’odeur est plutôt discrète, fruitée et sucrée. En bouche : bon, là au moins c’est clairement amère! La toute fin de la gorgée est particulièrement intense... Une boit avalé, le liquide n’a en effet pas dit son dernier mot et c’est à ce moment qu’il dévoile toute l’agressivité qui contient. Ça se boit quand même étonnement bien, somme toute! Je suis content d’avoir essayé.

33cl bottle at home. Hazy dark orange / brown with a medium slightly off-white head. Full body with low carbonation. Bitterness all over the place and in the distance some fruity sweetness. Pine, grapefruit, more pine, some yeast, peach and spices. This is quite the hop bomb!

Al paladar no es tan amarga como parece, tiene un buen olor que luego no se corresponde con el sabor. Buen cuerpo. Tomas una y no quieres dos.

Bottiglia 33cl Colore ambrato/arancio scuro, molti lieviti in sospensione, con cappello di schiuma color nocciola, persistente e consistente. Al naso le note di malto si sposano alla perfezione con quelle del luppolo, sprigionando aromi speziati, fruttati, agrumati, leggermente tostati, di biscotto. In bocca i leggeri sentori maltati e caramellati hanno vita assai breve, sopraffatti subito dall’amaro robustissimmo, sfacciato ma ben utilizzato, che trova comunque un certo equilibrio con i sentori di malto e frutta. Il finale non lascia scampo a nulla, se non ancora all’amaro. Corpo medio alto, carbonazione bassa. L’alcool si avverte nella bevuta, che rimane comunque piuttosto gradevole. Equilibri tutti propri per questa birra, in pieno stile di Mikkel, che rimane comunque un esemplare unico per gli amanti(come me) del genere.

Flaska delad med @msbrindbergs, tack! Mörk bärnstensfärgad vätska med gräddigt skum. Doftar humligt och för första gången känner jag att det luktar beska. Beska beska beska men jag tycker ändå att smakerna sitter... Sa jag att den är besk!

Flaska från Mikkeller webshop. Mörk grumlig bärnsten med ett mastodontskum. Ser ut som vispgrädde. Doftar granskog och svettig gympadoja. Man hinner ana en lättare sötma kort innan monsterbeskan slår sönder allt. Jobbig beska som sätter sig långt ner i halsen. Nej inte gott, men kul! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A tough one to place. Hop lovers will go for the Dank hoppy nose. The taste profile is obviously dominated by bitterness, including grapefruit, grapefruit rind, citrus and kiwi fruit. The hops build in the mouth over a three or four second timeframe. The astringent hops are bravely backstopped by caramel malts, nuttiness and a substantial, rich body. I’m in.

Bue en fin de journée, en chantant à tue-tête "aux sombres héros de l’amer" et en grignotant des cacahuètes au wasabi ( tant qu’à faire ... ). Donc, oui c’est amer et donc avec ce type de bière, on flirt avec les limites de l’acceptable et au début, on a un peu peur ... Et bien, finalement, ça se boit bien. Oui ça cogne pas mal, j’en reprendrai pas une deuxième de suite. Mais ce côté frontal est amusant ... Une expérience ( + 0.5 pour ça ).

Bottle. Hazy Dark caramel color, small tan head. Hoppy Nose, hoppy taste, minor floral note. Very bitter long finish. Heavy body, average carbonation.

oliodnb (494) - ITALY - APR 20, 2015
33cl bottle. Pours clear reddish amber with a solid thick beige head. Huge yeast flakes floating. Aroma is sweet malts, citrus peel and a lot (really a lot) of resinous vegetal notes along some spice. Taste is almost immediately overwhelmed by the crazy amount of hops, very strong dry bitter finish with lots of resinous and vegetal flavors. Extreme one but still drinkable.
