38cl, at 10.5%Vol, as Monk’s Elixir (Lagret på rødvinsfade med Brettanomyces), new exclusive Danish brew Anno 2011, thx to Jeppe!, complex brew, fruity/vinous and slightly sour/woody, not too heavy, balanced, hazy, good head, good brew, yet very expensive!

delnoche (478) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - APR 24, 2013
12.7fl oz bottle poured into a Westmalle Trappist glass. Dark ruby/brown with fizzy tan head. Aroma is barnyard and slight candy sugar but later became red wine. Flavor is red wine, candy, copper. Rather sour due to the Brett. Medium carbonation, full body. Sour finish with a slight alcohol burn. Interesting beer, though not something I’d pick up again.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2011
Bottle @ Borefts 2011. Murky, brown color. Fruity nose with hints of dark fruits, caramel, a bit of drak chocolate. No taste of alcohol. Okay.

brokensail (13234) - 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.

Yorker (1584) - Herning, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2013
37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with a tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is red wine, brett, berries, oak, and vanilla. Flavour is red wine, berries, and brett – with a dry and tart finish.

Koelschtrinker (12655) - 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

Had this one at the ACBF 2011. Brown, black colored brew. Brett all over the place. Sweet malts and fruits, berries, raisin. Nice.
