COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mikkeller teams up with up-and-coming Danish band Ring Them Bells to bring you a coffee porter appropriately named Ring Them Bells. With the purchase of your bottle you receive a download code for their mp3, but unless you enjoy getting Rick Rolled I would advise against attempting to redeem it. The label, which some have described as ‘creepy’, features artwork from Ring Them Bell’s first single. P.S. Have you heard Ring Them Bells’s first single I Ride Alone? It’s definitely worth a listen!

ClubGonzo (5422) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2016
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours an onyx black body with a large creamy light beige head. Nose is espresso, dark chocolate, cocoa, chocolate ice cream and hints of cereals, caramel and dark syrup. Taste is heavily roasted espresso, burnt toast, ashes, licorice, cocoa, dark chocolate and hints of caramel, dark syrup and burnt sugar. Full body, medium carbonation. Extremely coffee-dominated, but nevertheless a solid imperial porter from Mikkeller. The alcohol is well hidden, and drinking this feels pretty much like drinking a beer version of an Italian espresso. Enjoyable.
