Had this brew at Belgian Cafe as my night cap. Enjoyed it very much. Pours a solid dark body with nice lasting head. The aromas and flavor had caramel, malts, and raisins in it. The alc was pretty well hidden although it created a surprising amount of action on my palate when I first sipped it.

Colore ambrato-rossastro , schiumamolto compatta come un cappuccino... ;-)
Equilibrate note etiliche ( anche se ha 11 gradi ) e soprattutto forti le note del malto molto caramellato.
Prevalente il sapore dolciastro che rimane per primo al palato con delle punte di amaro... eccezionale anche se non è il mio gusto preferito.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Ørsted Ølbar. Pours very dark reddish brown with an off white head. Crystal clear. The colour is a bit too dark for my taste but otherwise a nice appearance.
The aroma is very malty with caramel, fudge and dried fruit and a hop note, that is very present vis a vis the average Doppelbock but very downplayed for a Mikkeller beer.
On the palate there is nice carbonation to lift heavy malts and make this quite drinkable. Finishes more hoppy and with more bitterness than usual for the style, but it works very well with the sweet and malty flavours.
