3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a slightly cloudy dark brown with an orange tint. Dense, light brown head. Lightly burned malt aroma. Medium body with a rather heavy carbonation. Roasted malt and burned, coffeeish touches. A surprising - for Mikkeller - subdued bitterness. Not much "Restsødme" (residual sweetness) left for Keller here. Perhaps the yeast ate it all? 211106

Sampled at Arg0’s Pre-RBSG Tasting at his pad:
Dark mahogany, tan head, lots of lacing. Nose of earthy, spicy hops. Very spicy and vegetal that blend with the nutty roast. The flavor is sweet, balanced and has plenty of body and character. Finishes chewy, nice. Thanks Jens!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark with a light reddish glow and a thick beige head (just like Keller himself). There’s coffee and licorice in the aroma along with the fantastic smell of wet wood. Just like when I was a kid playing on the playground in the rain. No wet asphalt though (damn!). With a nice sweetness at first and such a smooth bitterness in the end, this beer along with it’s flavour of espresso with licorice topping makes up a really great beer experience. Keller likes restsødme - MPA likes Keller (and Mikkel too btw)

Bottle. Thanks to sk8viking. Roasted malt characters, chocolate, caramel and a herbaceous hoppy finish. Some brown sugar also noticed at the start, lightly sweet, but with a nice hop bitterness in the finish. This was very pleasant and tasty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
<!-- i -->courtesy of Papsoe<!-- /i --> - pours a very dark brown colour with a solid creamy beige head leaving a solid lace; the roasted maltiness and a solid hop touch play nicely together in the aroma; notes of herbs and cocoa are noticable too; creamy mouthfeel and medium-bodied; long cocoa finish with herbal and metallic notes - this beer tastes very similar to the BFM Cuvéee du 8ème !
