3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Cloudy dark amber color, with red hue; creamy head. Strong hoppy aroma, citrus fruits with a tad of soil and dust, some cheese and then hop resins; maybe chaotic, but interesting indeed. The body is quite strong, with a powerful caramel flavor, some roasted malt and a tendency to earthiness; also, the yeast has quite some trace here; the hopping is obviously strong, very resiny and no longer fruity. The final is powerful, it almost becomes aggressive. It can be defined more as robust, and rough, than elegant. Very American.
