Rauchig medizinsche Aromen & Flavours, Malz und eine permanente Schwere zeichnen dieses, trotzdem samtige Schwergewicht aus. Trotzdem nicht so aussergewöhnlich wie erhofft. MIKKELLER BAR Aarhus. 0,2/65 DKK. Tap.

pushkinwow (2568) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2016
Bottle brought back by Steve and Mel from Copenhagen. Dark brown with a dark mocha head that settles down to a thin film. Very smooth, bittersweet chocolate and roasted malt, a nice islay presence with a warming booziness - if scotch isn’t your thing probably not going to like this unless you let it age for a bit an settle down. Full body with moderate carbonation, slightly bitter, peat, tobacco, delicious.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 1, 2016
Bottle. Warm asphalt, coffee, sweet chocolate, fruit esters. Notes of leather and tobacco. Creamy, thick almost as syrup, coffeeish like a fresh made espresso, slick and almost perfectly smooth (almost, because of the sharp peat notes). Sweet and full bodied, hence balancing the bitterness really well. Creamy, brown, durable head. Awesome.

drjoeng (857) - SINGAPORE - MAY 21, 2016
10.9%ABV. Imperial Stout. Nose has charcoal with mesquite coming to mind. The smoke takes on an almost chemical dimension with liniment coming to mind. Mouthfeel is syrupy. Palate has smoke, Japanese bamboo charcoal, mesquite briquets, black honey, Chinese lo han guo, scientific name Siraitia grosvenorii. This fruit is used in Chinese medicine to sweeten otherwise unpalatably bitter brews. The sweet malt in this bear of an ale is just that dark, smoky, medicinal and nectary. No hops Nice alcoholic heat in the back of the throat to finish. Goes on Favorites List ! Goes on All Time Faves!
