Massive Mikkeller pt.2 Another bottle provided by an ever generous trader in CA, you rock dude. This one was past it’s prime sadly. Carbonation was a little dead, as was the flavor. You could tell it was something special when it was fresh but not today.

Ughsmash (7136) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Magnum. Poured slightly hazy medium amber with a very tall, creamy, sticky, beige head. The aroma picked up peppery and earthy yeast, darker fruits, and sour, more tropical fruits.. some oxidation was setting in.. just a little biscuity sweetness beneath.. seemed like it was degrading a bit. The flavor was fairly sour throughout, with fruity skins leading.. peppery and fruity yeast throughout.. pale and biscuity malts supported.. lots of tart oxidation and fruity notes on the long finish. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. dry and a little stale feeling.. more sour than I needed, and the bitterness didn’t really help.. this may have been better at one point, but it didn’t work for me.

diabel (1607) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2011
Deep brown (with some reddish shine) to black, cloudy body. Slightly off-white head. Aroma of hops: flowers, orange, apple, pomelo, ... Harshly bitter (of great hops), light sweet flavour (and some spices): perfect marriage.
