radarsock (1120) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Bottle, unexpectedly shipped from my father—thanks so much, dude! It’s an 11.2 FL OZ/331 mL bottle containing an inky brown-black combination with an ascending, amazingly fluffy mocha head, 4½. fingers in length which gradually sank to just 1½.. I may have to stand back the aromas are so intensely complex, but what I get almost immediate is: charcoal bricks, chili peppers (it most certainly teases the nostrils), cardamom spiciness (keyword here: "earthy"), chocolate almond milk (ironically, I had bought some recently and the nose is quite reminiscent of that), Dutched chocolate, tangerine peels (yes, there is indeed some citrus in this bitch, especially on the nose), wheat flour, cinnamon rolls/doughnut glaze, celery sticks, aluminum (oh, you know what I fuckin’ mean), Kero syrup, wormwood, anise, avocados (strangely, the avocado comes through in the aroma really strongly; didn’t think it would), pancake butter, pomegranates, roasted malts, brown sugar, and limeade. Tastes deliciously well-rounded, bittersweet, roasted, nutty, charred, and leathery with notes of chili pepper heat, almond butter, avocados, bay leaves, dark chocolate, burnt hay, and spent grains. Ends bitter and earthy; hops, spruce tips, white tea and bacon grease by swallow. Transformative! And I was starting to think that Mikkeller didn’t brew any beer worth good money. Fantastic fill!

pilsnerrogge (2643) - Finspång, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2015
Bottled:
When I read about all the different ingredients it contained I expected a mess of flavors. But instead I got a soft and well-balanced Porter with a long, dry, roasted finish. Maybe even a little chilli heat at the end. Good!

erickok (4322) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - AUG 2, 2015
Really solid looks, large tasty foam. Not quite the bizarre beer I was afraid of. A good thing. It?s a nice stout. Chocolate and roasted aromas, bit on the rough edge, but just because it has no brown sugar or filtered characters, which is a good thing. Enjoyable beer. Perhaps not super complex in the taste and very bitter, but I don?t mind. And for the abv it has a great body! (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)
