3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Pours a almost clear dark brown with a small off-white head. Smells of leather. Quite sweet with aromas of smoked malts, caramel, wood and lots of leather. Some residual sugars. High carbonation. Full body. Smoked, dry finish with with hints of oak and alcohol. Good but has a bit too much of everything but water.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
<i>Bottled. </i> Hazy amber, small head. Rich medicinal rauchmalz aroma. Medium sweet with and aggressively flavourful. Oak collides with smoke and sugar. There are evident medicinal notes. A warming and potent beer that certainly stands out in the
typical Mikkeller fashion. By far not my favourite from the though.
