Cerveza negra. Olor afrutado. Un gran sabor complejo, a frutas maduras, higos, ciruelas, pasas, también especias. Una gran cerveza con gran cuerpo para después de una cena, el postre o para un día frio de invierno.

Bottle 330 ml from a trade with Countbeer, thanks. Into a snifter, ABV 10%
Dark mahogany brown colour on the body, with a bit more than a finger of head, tan in colour, thick but kind of froathy, with good retention neverhteless, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Aroma has prunes mainly, some faint chocolate, berries, red grapes. Taste is moderate sweet with a light acidity in too, with prunes once again, grapes and vinous notes, light caramel on the finish. The alcohol very well hiiden for its level.Medium thin body, good carbonation. Overall very good, very close to the better trappist ones.

Nice dark brown colour and a thin, offwhite head. Aroma has malts, sugary sweetness, and some caramel. Taste is very interesting, not in line with the aroma at all. A hint of bitterness. You get kind of a hollow feeling in the sense that the taste dissipates quickly. It’s quite usual Mikkeller beer, they take on a beer style and put their own twist into it and usually the results are pretty good.

On tap at Bier Station 3-8-14. Brown with orange highlights, a finger of off white head and good lacing. Aromas of plum and fig along with brown sugar and anise. Taste follows nose with those dark fruits and a brown sugar sweetness. Light anise flavor along with some clove spiciness and just a trace of alcohol and warmth. Finishes with some of that spiciness but is mostly dry. Medium bodied with a medium/high carbonation. Well integrated flavors. Good but not outstanding.
