3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Small yellow head over red-brown beer. Bock-like nose with sweet bread, but with a more spicy touch. Sweet, very much liquorice - roasted liquorice? Toffee, too, bit perfumey. Medium bodied, but very slick and lots of alcoholwarming. Doubtful. Maybe my least favourite Mikkeller. Despite the alcoholwarming, I’d never guessed 12% ABV.
