Fra flaske i Mikkellerbaren, mai-10: Heftige saker, smaksrik, kompleks og intens. Godsaker de luxe. En nytelse som er verdt å gjenta. Slik skal det gjøres!

Bottle thanks to Matt. I missed this one when it was on the shelves and have been wanting it ever since. Pours muddy brown. Nose/taste of dates, dark fruit, toffee malt, rich caramel, fried plantain, spice, sherry and port wine. Rich. A little alcohol burn in finish. Medium body. Good sipper.

SirLimpsalot (2106) - SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2012
Mikkeller Big Worst Barley Wine Bourbon Ed. (Flaska – Danmark – 19,2 %) Stor smak, mycket het, tydliga mörka toner av malt och plommon. Härlig munkänsla

ALLOVATE (2382) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2012
Tried @ Grain Cru - Roll Out the Barrels, Belgian Beer Café.
Deep ruddy brown and not quite bright; the appearance honestly of unused motor oil. Very little evident carbonation and headless, it leaves a sticky film upon the glass as it is swirled about. Nose has treacly sweet, toffee and caramel with so much caramelised stonefruit and sherryish notes to off-set the eye-watering, open and potentt, boozy alcohol that wafts like a thick vapour. There is little nuances of hazelnut, marmalade, palm sugar and dark candi in there that play straight onto the palate. Oily, liqueurish body, well rounded, spicy as hell with pronounced sherry and Muscat port notes. Sticky date pudding with a mix of dried fruits and peel - raisins, sultanas, muscatels, dates, orange peel - is broad across the palate. Light, almost residual carbonation allows the beer to dwell upon the tongue. Very long, warming, spiced fruit-port swallow edged by woody, nutty notes and a looming sweetness ends it. I was surprised by this one. As high in ABV as it was it showed such great balance and poise. Very nice. A memorable beer!! (Batch No.1, 2010 vintage, 17.6% ABV, Cellarbrations Carlisle)
