Complex aroma of brown sugar, oak, red wine, caramel, ripe red fruits, toffee, a touch of alcohol. Flavour is quite sweet with a lot more note of red wine. A bit sticky and cloying. I enjoyed this better than the original Big Worse, a bit less sweet and the wine barrel aging has paid off well.

375ml bottle. Pours dark bordeaux with a smooth white head. Aroma of caramely malts, vinous notes, wood, oak and berries. Taste is sweet, malty and vinous with notes of berries, wood and oak. Finish is stingy, sweetish, vinous and woody with notes of tart berries, caramel and oak. A bit unbalanced and too vinous. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sample @ home, thanks veliempojot!
Aroma is rather oaky with some red wine tones and hints of alcohol. Flavour has red wine, oak, some caramel and toffee-like ’Mikkeller house aroma’. Hides the alcohol relatively well. Not much of the original beer left. Better than I expected still.

lusikka (6027) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 24, 2014
375 ml bottle. Pours a dark ruby colour with a small head. Aroma of sweet caramel, red berries, grass and lingonberries. Flavour of caramel, red berries, herbs, grassy bitterness and wood. Red wine is rather well hidden. Medium bodied and a dry, malty, grassy finish. Alcohol warms. Good balance.

DwarfeD (839) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2014
375ml bottle from BierNavigatie. Pale brown with flocks of sediment and a small creamy off-white head. Full body with light to moderate carbonation. Sweet with bitter tones and some slightly sourness. Herbs, brown sugar, wood, spices, caramel, citrus and dark fruits. A great complex full flavoured brew.
