3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Hetk in Tallinn (various occasions during summer/autumn 2014). Pours a deep dark brown with a huge, frothy beige head - retains well, good lacing. Nose is caramelly, roasty, malty, slightly lagerish and chocolaty. The caramelly aspect kind of reminds me of the classic lemonade ’Buratino’. Taste... a luscious mix of the sweet caramelly malts and bitter+sweet, citrusy hops; it gets somewhat chocolaty as it warms. Medium body, crisp carbonation, dry palate. Probably my favourite Mikkeller we regularily have around here. Should maybe write a more in-depth review in the future.

Wow, a warming brown ale, that kicks a hop punch, and gives a drying hop finish. If you only had to drink one brewers beer for life, it would have to be mikkeller . The king .

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours hazy brown with a lasting big creamy tan head. Aroma is caramel, nuts, oats, earthy and herbal hops, licorice root, mild roasted malt,
and very mild coffee. Taste is moderate sweet, near moderate bitter and very light acidic. Body is medium, texture is very creamy, carbonation is moderate. Finishes mild dry with licorice and mild dusty. Great creamyness, but I don’t appreciate the finish.
