COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Bock from Mikkeller is called Frelser. Means Savior in Danish. The name is a subtle reference to all Bocks Mother: Salvator. Originally the monks brewed Salvator because they needed a very strong and rich beer during Lent. Do not drink this beer instead of a meal, it contains 11% alcohol.

Sampled on tap at SIB, pours dark brown / black. Aroma of sweet roasted malt, fruit, sweetness and alcohol. Flavour follows accordingly. Fantastic.

On tap at the Brick Store Pub. At first glance, I thought this was a stout. It’s a very dark purple color, with a minimal head. The aroma is mainly fruit and alcohol. It tastes like vinegar, with a wine-like fruit flavor. It is sweet, with very little hops bitterness. The mouthfeel is light, and made little impression on me. Overall, an interesting beer.

Draft at Brick Store Pub. Pours deep but brilliant - dark ruby brown with a hint of purple (like a cool-hued garnet). Thin offwhite head. Thick, vinous, chewy, tangy malt aroma. Tangy malt sweetness in the flavor. Rich dark fruit (raisin cakes) with hints of chocolate. Full sweet finish with fruity malts. Mouthfeel is full, almost syrupy, with very strong carbonation, which does a good job of adding a sense of levity to the full texture. Overall, a very thick and rich, malty brew - but a bit too sweet.

omhper (19309) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2010
Draught at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Dark brown, minimal head. Sweet and full bodied with clean syruåy mouthfeel. Dense and caramelly, a bit edgy and sticky. Low bitterness. Too much power, feels aggressive and rough.

Bottle. Mahogony beer with a nice tan head. Malt and toffee aroma with light dried fruit. Malt and caramel/toffee flavor with figs/dates. Medium-plus bodied. Figs/dates linger with caramel/toffee and light cocoa.

GT2 (8354) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 17, 2010
Tap at Paradiso. Pours a clear, deep ruby red with little head and decent beige lacing. Red licorice nose- very like Salvator actually. Taste is very syrupy sweet up front and then moves to a forest floor, herbal, medicinal bitterness that I get with some of these Danish style beers. Not really a hoppy bitterness. More like a throw everything you can find that is somewhat bitter into the primary to balance out such a sweet base beer. After it warms it gradually improves to taste like old flan syrup.

Leighton (10683) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2011 Tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours dark brown with a slight, off-white head. Some malt in the aroma, along with candy and dates. Flavor is outrageously sweet, with molasses, some grape, light caramel and tons of raisin. Flavor struck me as similar to that of a barley wine. Thick in body, a little syrupy. Lingering sweetness and stickiness in the finish. Not too shabby. (3.7) On tap at the Craft Beer Co., London. Lots of malted barley in the nose. Pours clearish amber with a tight, light tan head. Sweet as shit, tons of malty sugars, mild caramel, some ripe fruits. Full bodied with average carbonation. Warm finish, more malt sweetness, candy, mild toffee, brown sugar. Very delicious. (4.1)

Draft. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Caramel malty aroma with some dark fruity sweetness. The flavor has a raisin/plummy dark fruity sweetness, caramel malts, and toffee. Good, not great.

[Draft @ 4th Ave Pub] Dark brown mahogany color with a small, light tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of soy, oxidation, chocolate, roast, dark fruits, and alcohol. Taste of caramel, chocolate, roast, figs, raisins, some smoke, and alcohol.
