4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml bottle to celebrate Father’s day :) bbe 07/12/15. Pitch black, thin but lasting brown head. Aroma has roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, wood and sticky sweetness. Very complex, at first it feels overly sweet, coffee with half a cup of brown sugar, but later on the hops kicks in, getting citrusy hoppiness towards finish. No alcohol at all. Long smooth roasted finish. Scaringly easy to drink. One of the best from Mikkeller, also one of the most complex beers I have tried.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
37.5cl bottle at home from Only Good Beer, Budapest. Body is black, head is medium, brown, rocky, average lasting, good lacing. Nose is sweetish light smoky roasty, flavor is chocolate, coffee liqueur, chocolate mousse, bonbon, light red wine, Belgian yeast. Light sweet, heavy roasty bitter, light sour. Finish is long lasting roasty heavy bitter, medium cherry sour, heavy alcohol warmth, later more hops, more bitterness. Full body, slightly sticky texture, average carbonation. Not that heavy, nice dessert beer, reminds me of some Belgian strong dark ales with more hoppy bitterness.

Draught at Craftsman. Pitch black body. Rich dark malt, coffee beans, cocoa, strong smokey notes, herbal hops, traces of alcohol, roasty finish. Quite a slow sipper, interesting and complex, would like to try some of the barrel-aged versions.
