Tap at Borefts, shared with Mathieu87.
APPEARANCE: pitch black beer with very small unstable beige head.
NOSE: amazing nose, very fruity and lots of alcohol, though maybe a little over the top? Alcohol is quite overwhelming.
TASTE: alcohol warming feeling, nice burned malts, somewhat fruity.
Very good brew!

Borefts 2013. Bizarly-complex, but unfortunately un-balanced beer. Far too boozy for my liking. Interesting, but after the Brunch Weasel disappointing.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at Borefts í13. Black colour on the body, a thin beige head on top. Good retention, light lacing that struggles to stay attached on the glass.
Fantastic aroma, lots of dark fruits, then sweet red grapes, quite wine-like, bring a strong porto to mind. Aromas of cognac on the surface, after a deep inhale it becomes more evil, with the alcohol smelling more medicinal than it should.
Taste of very dark and very roasted malts, alcohol that gives a warming feeling, so warming that actually burns, strong cocnaq on the finish that last for a moment and then gets replaced by tons and tons of coffee. Aftertaste of bitter coffee with long duration.
Thick body, good carbonation. Sticky on the palate but also kind of dry. Except for the burn the alcohol doesnít hit so strong, so be careful.
Overall fantastic beer. For some reason I donít remember I donít keep Mikkeller very high on my books but with beers like that I see myself changing opinion very soon.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Borefts, 2013. Nose of chocolate, coffee, soy sauce and some vinegar. Flavors of molasses, chocolate, and cola with a very bitter finish. Decent but rather unremarkable on a day of amazing stouts.

@Borefts. Good beer. but a little bit too overwhelming. All the different tastes are strong and attack you simultaneously, leaving you a bit smoothered.
