JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle, 375 ml. Opaque deep brown with no head. Penetrarting woody, white wine odeour. Nose makes me wonder is this a beer? Taste is sweetish dark fruity, smooth roasty with hints of raisins and these penetrating notes of white wine barrels. Unbalanced. Has anyone from Mikkeller actually tasted this one?
