Real chitl label on this 1!
Pours basically black with a small well retained head and some lacing on the glass.
The aroma is dark chocolate & coffe. It’s rich and aromatic, plenty inviting without much fruit when it’s cold... more lemon/lime sorts of aromas start to open up as it warms tough.
The flavor is a wave, plenty of tartness right up front.. plenty of orange, plenty of lemon and lime & then it’s basically porter from there. The fruitiness fades pretty quick, but I think that’s kind of the charm of it.... sort of a changeling on the palate. There is a bit of lingering juniper as well. The beer is plenty roasty with some nice dark chocolate, a really fantastic bitterness, it’s richly malty & overall pretty fantastic.
Shelf beer; would drink again.

Mikkeller ha dimostrato che osare con la frutta sulle porter frutta buoni, anzi ottimi risultati. Questa birra è stupenda: partendo dal sostegno di una porter ottimamente interpretata, si espande con una nota tostata-cioccolatosa che si chiunde nel citrico dell’arancia. Non si può non provarla.
