4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
At Craft & Draft, where it was advertised as "Man in the Moon". Creamy, lacing, pale beige head, black robe with burgundy edges. Strong and interesting aroma of soy sauce, bitter chocolate, balsamic vinegar, nut shells, coffee grounds, stewed beef, cured meat, wet oak. Intensely umami (cured meat) onset with balsamic-like sourishness which will last till the very end, overspanning a journey of subdued dried fruit sweetishness, softly carbonated and smooth ’full-bodiedness’, deep nutty and toasted malt bitterishness and peppery hops, ending in drying wood accents and warming, cognac-like alcohol. Rich and opulent as ever with Mikkeller stouts, but perhaps a bit too much in the balsamic-like sourishness and not enough in sweetness. Still: a classy, deeply layered beer, highly recommended.
