Bottle. Pours brown/ruby with a big off white head. Big hop aroma but can immediately tell the bottle is out of date. Really a shame because the malt characteristics are outstanding. Lots of caramel, some vanilla and smoke. Mouthfeel is slightly thin. Will definitely buy this again to rate a fresh bottle.

33cl at home. Beau-ti-ful dark IPA - or brown ale? - from Mikkeller. Lovely light beige, firm head onto a ruby red, dark brown body. The aromas are full of hoppy flavours - nothing more, nothing less. The brew’s taste has clear features of coffee, dark chocolate and hint at a light stout with lovely bitterness. The lemon zeste, citrus mouth is so, so good. Lovely!

Pours the deepest brown with a big tan lacing head. Malty, caramel, chocolatey... with a big hop profile and lasting bitterness. Lovely beer, and a lot better than I was expecting.

Bottle. Clear dark mahogany colour with a big beige frothy head. Aroma has notes of hops, citrus and malt. Very good, and clearly dryhopped. Medium sweet taste with heavy bitterness. Notes of caramel and roasted malt. Medium body with lively carbonation and a long and bitter finish. Very tasty brown ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle in the Marketplace Ale House, Doncaster. Pours chestnut with a big rocky cream head. Seems massively lively with bubble rushing to the surface in waves. The flavour is chewy toffee with a slightly sour fruity edge - cherry perhaps. Hints of malt vinegar and red wine. Light spice also. Tasty.

Astonishing balance between all flavors, roasted, chocolate and caramel, drank lukewarm and maybe it’s better this way.
They say not all mikkeller beers are mind blowing but maybe this is one of these.
