Bottle, thanks to Cole for the share. Pours murky orange, thin off-white head, no head. Nose is citrus hops, orange, booze, marmalade, grapefruit rind, caramel. Flavours are quite straightforward, citrus, booze, caramel. Meh.

Rune (9296) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2010
250ml from tap at Ørsted Ølbar & Café. Murky, dark reddish body, no head. Aroma of sweet dried fruits. Sweet hops and dried fruits in flavour, dominated by apricots. Moderate impact of alcohol on the palate. Alright sipper that gets a bit too sweet (Copenhagen, 09.05.2010).

oh6gdx (22478) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 31, 2010
Draught@CPH BeerFest2010. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, wood and some mild yeast, alcohol and gluelike sweetness. Flavour is fruits, alcohol, a bit gluelike sweet. A bit unbalanced, and not all too pleasant.

Draught in snifter....Clear yellow pour, seriously looks like budweiser or something similar...Aroma is sweet almost candy like...Taste is sweet with some caramel and fruit but mostly alcohol and more alcohol and when I got past the alcohol really just way too sweet.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 31, 2010
Unclear darkish amber colour, small white head ok lacing. Really sweet caramel toasty malty hoppy fruity aroma. Sticky mouthfeel. Very, very, very, very sweet cloying caramel syrup toasty malty frutish alco flavour, rather unpleasant. Long lasting too sweet alco finish.

cpetrone84 (1705) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2010
A-pours an orangish amber color, quite clear, with an off white head with a good lace. S-the nose has huge hops, cheese up front, notes of funk, a caramel malt lies up front but citrus and grapefruit take over big time and don’t quite. T-again huge hops, cloying sweetness up front, tons of cheese, notes of sulfer, hints of caramel, tons of citrus, grapefruit, tangerine. tons of hops in this with a light bitterness. M-a little grainy on the palate with a medium body and lots of carbonation and a crisp finish. a little syrupy but soft on the tongue. D-this is different, the flavors are off and don’t work well together. the hops and cheese just don’t seem to be a nice mix. not very enjoyable but the huge hop finish is interesting.

DocLock (8526) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2011
12.7 ounce bottle from Capone’s. Pours relatively clear dark straw with minimal white head. Quite frankly, this one looks wimpy. Nose is perfumy floral spices, hops, and sadly some plasticy fusels, almost to the level of a yellow rain coat thrown in a blender. Tastes rich, sweet, with notes of malt, syrupy honey, dark fruit, floral spices, and hops. Comes off like a spicier Irish Mist mixed with apple wine. Heat is apparent early and often. This one is unique and unconventional, but it cannot be denied that it is a bit of a mess. This one makes Weyerbacher Insanity seem like Fullers Vintage Ale. Rerated 11:51, almost finished. This one degrades as it warms, getting pretty bad late. This is the first Mikkeller beer that I have had trouble finishing.

Dazz3 (1669) - Hällefors, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2011
4/10 i mörkheten. Luktar spritigt och lite blommigt. Lite frän och oljig, ganska söt och spritig i smaken. Spritig och söt i eftersmaken.

375mL bottle, pours a dark amber with small bubbles as head. Nose brings out lots of caramel, dark fruits and alcohol - very potent. Flavour screams dark fruits, with loads of dates, figs, toffee, port, grapes and loads of alcohol. Too much for me - the alcohol is overburdening, though it’s not really that boozy for the ABV. Complex and drinkable slowly, but it gets really harsh after a while. Not my thing at all.
