Rating #800. Jeg synes at min #800 ratebeer anmeldelse skulle være noget andet end den Protivinsky Granat de havde tilbage i Netto, så jeg måtte lige et smut forbi Toft Vin for at se om de havde fået lidt nyt på hylderne. Det havde de - deriblandt denne Sort Gul fra Mikkeller. En Mikkeller, en sort IPA, samt en anbefaling fra butikkens personale, så kan det vel næsten ikke gå galt? Det starter i hvert fald ganske formidabelt. Øllet er som forventet sort som en congonegers røv, og har en smule brunt skær til sig. Den lader et smukt kniplingsmønster forme efter sig på glassets kant efterhånden som den bliver drukket, så det er et top-udseende i min karakterbog. Skummet starter med at være adskillige centimeter tykt og falder ganske langsomt til en halv fingertykkelse, mens farven fortættes til en latte-brun omgang. Duften bredte sig fra det øjeblik kapslen blev knappet af med en skøn blanding af hindbær, jordbær, citrus, appelsin, vindruer, chokolade, ristet malt og sikkert meget mere jeg har glemt i farten. Tydeligst er dog aromahumlen der understreger at øllet er stærkt beslægtet med IPA af den amerikanske slags. Smagen er kraftigt mærket af appelsin og citrus, ristet malt og chokolade fra første indtryk. Dernæst kommer alkoholen til sin ret, en masse bitterhumle og en smule træ og vandpibe-frugttobak, måske med en anelse vindrue, i baggrunden. Duften lægger faktisk op til en mere eksplosiv smag end der præsteres, men smagen er absolut ikke dårlig, bare ikke så kompleks som forventet. Efter min smag kunne der godt være skruet en smule op for sødmen og en smule ned for bitterheden for at matche duftindtrykket. Øllet fremstår en smule tørt grundet den kraftige humle, men er ellers dejligt fløjsagtig, cremet og afdæmpet i munden. Kulsyren er tilpasset ganske fortrinligt til den kraftige bitterhed, og rent mundfølelsesmæssigt er det en af de lækreste øl i lang tid. Måske lyder det som om jeg roser denne øl til skyerne, men jg må indrømme at jeg havde forventet en smule mere. Det var selvfølgelig heller ikke den dyreste Mikkeller...

heavy (2663) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 15, 2016
Jan. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle that poured hazy brown, almost black body with medium sized beige head. Aroma of caramel, coffee, cacao and sharp herbal hops. Flavor was bitter, dry herbal with roasted malt like coffee and licorice. Lightly salty. Fine but seemed unfinished and too simple. Full body with longer dry finish. Didn’t impress me with its plain dry bitterness and overall simplicity, but it was a very fine, fresh and very effective brew despite that. Far from the top notch for me though.

Fules (646) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 30, 2016
Hatalmas, nagyon tartós, bézs hab, fekete szín. Illata fekete csokis, némi kávés vonással. Pörkölt malátás, feketecsokis, némi kávéval, markáns narancshéjas, citrusos aromával. Kicsit édes, alacsony szénsavtartalmú, testes, selymes, tökéletes összhangú ital. Nagy sör.
