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.

My Bottom Line:
This Imperial Stout-meets-Doppelbock proposes Munich and chocolate malts along raisiny caramel, while alcohol heat and herbal hop bitterness seal each sip with authority.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the brown-hinged blackness.
-Even though this is a mighty brew, it is not too sweet (which I appreciate).
-The soft effervescence makes each rather easy drinking for an 11% lager.
-This is as well executed as any other Mikkeller brew, but the recipe itself is not as compelling as some of his best work.

Blood red/black pour. Aroma has a lot of herbs and a bit smokey notes. Taste is rich with liqorice and coffee liqueur. Nice full body.

Pours dark brown with red at the edges and a creamy tan head. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, some dark fruit, and booze. Flavor is lots of sweet malt, fruit, some roasty notes, and a good bit of bitterness.

Big thanks to Blazer06 for another Mikkeller treat. Pours murky rutty mahogany with mocha head. The aroma puts out spicy black licorice, black strap molasses, a bit of roast, a mild amount of dark fruity esters and a wafer thin ring of sweet nuttiness rounded things out. The taste is smooth to start with a pulse of chocolate and sweet malts to go along with growing rich sweet dark fruity esters. By midway a black licorice note, some spiciness and chocolate all join in to take this to the finish. Yummy beer that goes above and beyond most of this style I’ve had before.

Deep brown pour. The nose is fairly sweet with a little bit of salty character. Soy-like chewiness. A soft toastiness in addition to a bit of plummy fruit. Salty/savoury character on the back. Full-bodied and a little bit chewy. Kind of odd, but it’s okay.
