jesperhammer (2836) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2014
24-JAN-2014, draft @Mikkeller & Friends. Hazy Brown, lo off-white head. Weak aroma - perhaps too Cold as with all Mikkeller tap beers. Only a little bread and brown sugar on the nose. Taste is bread, , spice, roast, Brown sugar. Quite hoppy bitter finish. Full body and lively carbonationi. This is still a really good X-mas brew

elosop (140) - SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2014
Mkt mörkröd. Bra skumkrona. Karamelldoft ock kryddor. Maltig smak. Smakar som färsköl. Lång, lite eldig eftersmak. God & inte så mättande. Dessutom bryggd i Belgien!

boxofrane (2055) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Draft at bistro on bridge. Pours dark brown nearly black with a medium sized tan head. The aroma has light licorice, toffee, not pungent really. The taste has some dark fruit, semi sweet, well hidden alcohol.

Kosmokrator (456) - ITALY - JAN 25, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 Alla spina. Limpido color marrone con riflessi color mogano e un soffice velo di schiuma beige poco persistente. Aroma dolciastro con note di uva, zucchero caramellato, luppoli floreali e frutta fresca. Gusto in bilico tra dolce e amarognolo con note fruttate e maltate di media intensità; finale corto, corpo medio-lieve, effervescenza debole. Birra meno strutturata dell’atteso e forse anche un po’ acquosa, l’abv è fin troppo celato poiché manca quella sensazione rotonda e liquorosa al palato che contraddistingue determinate birre invernali. E’ particolare ma "sa un po’ di poco", da Mikkeller mi aspetto di più.
