Massive Mikkeller pt.2 Out of the three vintages (11’,09’,08’) this one tasted the best. Sweet and very flavorful. Seemed a little more mellow then the others but the flavor was still very in your face. Awesome!

Abio (1518) - Waasland, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2011
Brown beer, a good sized head. Yeasty, milky, red fruits, chocolate, spices. Hoped more from this beer. Nothing really inside that makes it interesting, but neither bad ofcourse.

Pour out of bottle is hazy brownish almost black with off white head, aroma has notes of lots of ginger, clove, and cinnamon spices, hints of chocolate, dark fruit, caramel, and toffee in there as well. Taste is spice heavy with clove and cinnamon, ginger notes in there going into some dark fruit and toffee, finishing fairly sweet, alcohol subdued nicely.

75 cl bottle. BBE 06.10.2015.
Originally rated on 20091113.(9+4+9+4+17)
Pours murky red-brown colour with small head. Aroma has lots of plum and dried, ripe fruits. Caramel, wood, spices, mild vanilla notes and hints of liquorice. Flavour of ripe fruits, plum, dark malts, spices, hints of vanilla, some liquorice and caramel. Very complex brew still, though the flavours have smoothened a bit and the alcohol burns through more.

laiti (4943) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2011
75 cl bottle @ Nurmo
Aroma has raisins, darkened sugar and cherries. Also some hops and hints of spices. Flavour has peppery spices, licorice, anis and some hops. Also some herbs in the finish. Feels a bit like an expectorant. Good and well preserved, the overwhelming hops have been tamed during the two years.

Bottle courtesy of Cheeseman. Compared to the 2008 version this is less herbaceous with about the same sweetness. The cocoa powder shows through on this one, matched with some pepper.
