4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer smells very lively. Lots of stong malt, fig, spice, earthy notes at first. After a while it smells very doughy, with some fresh alcohol and candied sugar notes. Flavor is just superb in its smoothness. It has the flavor and delicacy of a some fresh salad greens. It really reminds me of biting into some very clean and fresh dark greens. The palate is simply something to take a vacation into. It just wraps the mouth in this softness that rivals a milk chocolate mousse.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
P: Pours a dirty brown body with chunky floaters and a airy khaki head that settles to a swirled wake. Milky lacing slips and slides around the edges.
S: Oxidation has set in. A treasure trove of dark fruits soaked in spiced rum, old leather, slight vegetable matter, graham cracker pie crust, and faint whiffs of banana bread.
T/M: Oxidation has hit this hard with a soapy residue masking the flavors and covering the palate. Dark fruits, heavy handed spice and bitter apple peels still shine through. Anise star, clove, cinnamon, and pippali pepper, cardboard, bready yeast and Belgian candy sugar. Stick body that has wondered on the side of light-medium. A hefty dose of carbonation allows this brew to tingle the entire mouth.
O: This bad boy has been in my closet for about 2 years and I kept forgetting about it. Glad I finally pulled it out and enjoyed it. Slightly oxidized but overall a great beer. I really enjoyed the dark fruits, spices and rum mingled into the yeasty backdrop.

Botella de 33 cl tomada varias veces en el lúpulo, la ultima en septiembre de 2013. Una buena Quadruple al estilo belga, con un gran cuerpo y 10 vol que se notan en todo momento. Bastante densa con toques bastante dulces de caramelo, pastosos y maltosos. Bastante buena y genial alternativa a las quadruples belgas. Para repetir una vez mas.

Fra flaske, Bror & Beer. Restaurant Bror. Orange-rødlig brun øl med et lille beige skum. Bær-noter. Appelsin. Fudge. Brun sukker. Maltkrop med flere lag - godt gemt alkohol. Sød, men ikke piv-sød. Lang finish med en snigende humle bitterhed. Virkelig god ledsager til retten med kalvekæber og løg i flere teksturer.
