3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Bundobust, Leeds. Cloudy, dark gold. Thin, sticky, lasting, white head. Big, fusty mandarin citrus. Lots of pine resin. Fairly brash. Verges on minty and herbal. Taste is heavy bitter. Some sweetness. Full, chewy palate. A bit boozy. Finishes long, chewy, oily bitter. Loads of oomph, not much finesse. Still liked it a lot, though.

2/11/15 - Monk’s Pub (Chicago) Draft -Nice mixture of fruity hops and a taste of caramel. Tasted somewhat bitter, yet smooth and enjoyable to drink. Strong flavor and texture is a reason I liked this offering. Well done Mikkeller and hope to find additional offerings from this brewer down the road.
