Theis (13228) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2009
Bottle at Kiin Kiin (Slaget om Nørrebro) and at Papsø’s. Cloudy dark red/brown - offwhite head. Raisins, ryebread, sweetness, roasted, dried fruits, brown sugar, caramel, spicy, berries, alcoholic, licorice. OK - but us seemes a bit young and alcoholic.

JorisPPattyn (7773) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2009
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.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2009
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of Theis. Clear warm reddish amber with an off-white head. Aroma of overripe fruit and alcohol. Solid body, a little fruit and yeast. Massive alcohol burn. Really, really needs some aging to mellow down the alcohol. 300809

Skinnyviking (6746) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2009
Bottle. Nicely wrapped in golden paper, a black ribbon and with a pink label with flowers. Very feminin. High creamy and long lasting off-white head. Clear slightly hazy ruby body. Mild malty light spicy aroma with notes of straw. Flavor likewise deceptively mild malty caramel vineous without the expected hops bitterness commonly used in connection with Mikkeller beers. Low carbonation, short aftertaste. Alcohol very well hidden.
