2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen on two consecutive nights Dark brown, no head. Cherryish nose with plenty of acidity. Sweet, despite the acidity with dense full body. Sour carameland sweet syrup. Feels heavy and compact. peppery alcohol plays a significant part and adds further burn to the stinging sourness. A beer with everything at once, yet not much complexity. A very interesting experment, but I don’t know what to do with such a beer. A tough beer to rate - like no other beer I’ve tasted, but in the end I figure I just don’t like it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph.
Pours muddy brown with a small, frothy, off-white head that soon fizzes away. Aroma is crazy! Plums, red apple, sourness, blue grapes, tannins, black currants, oak. High carbonation, great dry and light mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of sweetness, caramel. But also lives up to its name, black currant tartness, very vinious, almost menthol-like, raisins, grapes. Almost out of proportion and difficult to compare to anything, let alone the RB scale. Fabolous, but also crazy as f..k.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap @ Mikkeller Bar. Reddish black, beige rim, no head. intriguing aroma of both leather, tar and smoke, folowed by a taste with a tartnes, some wet dirt and forrset berries. Not at all knowing wahat´s going on here, the brew stries me as a Imp. Stout on a Marsala trip. Very complex and extremly interesting.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2010 Tab @ Mikkeller Bar. Hazy and muddy brown/red pour with no head at all. Aroma has a lot of rum, vanilla, oak, port wine, alcohol, a bit of sourness, red berries, sweetness, sour berries. Taste has rum, port wine, vanilla, oak, wood, sour wine, alcohol. Big body, medium, fizzy carbonation, long duration.
This is a massive beer. It tastes and smells like a mix of rum, port wine and red wine. Indeed different from anything else I’ve tried. Goes to your head very quickly.

Is it a beer? IS it a plane? No, it’s Mikkeller again. Noe carbonation, lots of sweetness, vinous sour palate. I don’t know if this is an experiment or it was intended this way. Keep them coming!
