brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Pours a dark amber color with an off-white head. Plenty of dark fruit notes on the nose, mostly cherry, raisin, and grape. A little bit of tartness balances out the sweetness somewhat. Dark candi sugar and toasted malts are also prominent. The palate is fairly sweet and malty with a good amount of dark fruit flavors to it. Just a hint of Brettanomyces funk, and maybe a light tartness. Just kind of okay.

Bottle shared in London for Josh’s farewell tasting. Thanks to Josh himself for this one. Pours hazy brown with a creamy beige head. Lots of lightly tart fruits in the nose, berries, wood. Medium sweet flavor with a bit of woody alcohol, bread, mildly tart fruits, ripe citrus, faint toffee. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with lingering tart fruits, mild acidity, slight caramel. Nice.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Säuerlich-malziger Antrunk mit wenig Süße. Die Malzigkeit ist dabei trocken und spielt der Säuerlichkeit zu. Es ist weniger Abwechslung als bei dem Ausgangsbier gegeben, daher wirkt es für Mikkeller Verhältnisse in Teilen eindimensional. Trocken-malzig-säuerliches Finish. /10/11/11//11
