Honey, grapes, oak, toffee and liquor like sweetness on the nose. Caramel, syrup, toffee, kalakukko (herring baked in rye bread), calvados sweetness, date and sweet white whine on the taste. The sweetness goes a bit overboard probably due to high alcohol percentage, but still highly enjoyable.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Bottle opened at my "Massive Mikkeller" tasting. Opened right next to the regular Big Worse. This one, in comparison, had a nice peppery spice aroma mixed with the boozy maltyness. Took me a while to get around to landing this one but I’m happy I finally got it ticked.

Vestergaard (910) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2012
Pours rustic, filthy, cloudy brown with a thick light brown head. Smells surprisingly fresh. The red wine is present already, and combined with the sweetness it’s almost smells like apple pie. The taste is sweet, but works very well with the wine. Toffee and malty. Very nicely executed!
