Ba monks elixir w/ cranberries... On tap at mikkeller bar... Pours a dark mahogony cola brown with a thin soapy quickly dissipating light beige head... Aroma of tart cranberry, a light vineousness of red fruit and dark plum... Flavors continuing on a similar wavelength with cranberries, wood, a little bit of leather as well as providing a light warmth, contributed by the barrel. A slight medicinal quality although not too distracting. Semi-lively carbonation and medium bodied overall. 8/4/7/3/15

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2011
Draught, shared with omhper at Mikkeller Bar. Deep, dark brown. Low, off-white head. Oaky dry aroma with berries beneath. Comprehensive taste character with the berries to the fore supplied by dark malts. Tartness, sweetness and dryness in fine harmony. Good (Copenhagen, 26.05.2011).

omhper (23513) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2011
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Cloudy dark brown, small head. Evident tart cranberry aroma. Syrupy sweet with lots of molasses. Thick and sugary with a light cranberry tartness. Slight resiny bitterness. Messy, sticky and tough to drink. Not at all my cup of tea.
