Bottle kindly shared by plovmand thanks a lot. :-) I had rather high expectations to this one, now the org. brunch for sure is a fantastic brew. Unfortunately they wasn’t fulfilled, but its still a very interesting experiment those brunch special editions. It pours pitch black with a small light brown head. The aroma is intense with lots of roasted malt, liquorice, coffee, tar, hops and alcohol. Flavour is dominated by alcohol with a hint of whiskey, but also with strong notes of roasted malt, liquorice, wood, coffee and hops. The after taste is quite bitter with roasted malt notes.

Had this at the Borefts Beer Festival, De Molen Brewery, Bodegraven, Netherlands 30-10-09 This is just so very different to the Speyside edition, its like its a totally different beer. This version retains the richness and fulness that the Speyside edition was lacking, there is a nice warmth from the alcohol, nicely bitter and roasty, lovely coffee and chocolate, a step up for more in comparison to the Speyside.

On tap at Borefts BF 09. I was just on a run of really good beers at this point. Black, lasting tan head. Bit hot, but the intense coffee comes through. I mean let me sit here for a while and enjoy. I like it a lot.

Finally getting to this - It’s pitch black which is nice for the occasion - just about to watch the PVR’d Rugby World Cup Final with New Zealand. I managed to keep the glutenous blobs within the bottle instead of letting them cannonball into my lovely glass. Produced a thin dark black cap with slippery spot lacing that moved back to the surface just like a now globe that has been left to sit. Excellent aroma - drool inducing rich roasted malts and chocolate, thick coffee that is not over the top, cream. Deep relaxed inhales bring a deep soulful meaning of indulgence. Only on deep smells after letting my beer sit can I pick up the scotch treatment hanging around in the shadows. HInts of berries and an even fainter licorice - the cookie dough hovers above both. Ahhhhhhhhh what wonderful taste - Mikkeller does everything right. Although I didn’t buy this here it’s sure great to have someone bringing in all these excellent Mikkeller beers. Massively rich malts, coffee and then chocolate combo. Whiskey bite notes continue on every sip at every point. My cat just licked my hand for 30 seconds.. such a long tongue!!!mmmmmmmmmmmmm.... Interesting spice hangs around - not quite cinnamon, not quite something else - odd. Light alcohol bite that works and doesn’t annoy. This beer is very well put together - so well that I had totally forgotten about the bitterness until right now when it obviously added up on my taste buds - I wouldn’t exactly call them my ’buds’ but I drink with them more than my other buds. This specific whisky treatment is much softer than the others and, in a way, much more enjoyable with its subdued ways that use little hooks to attach to your senses. There’s that berry quality again. Breathe in the alc. Breathe in the lingering harsh bitterness. Taste it... it’s there always. Now I note some whisky things - sharp bite with faint pear. Thick, smooth and velvety, long lingering hugely thick malt finish. I totally love this beer - so many subtle qualities - I’d email the brewery and tell them how to improve their beer but there is nothing to improve on. Lesson? Ass.
