4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark red with a firm, lasting off white head. The aroma is packed with fruity notes of red berries, citrusy hops and caramel, chocolate and orangepeel due to the weinbrand cask. On the palate this is one of the best balanced beers I’ve had this year. There is nothing that is overdosed vis a vis other taste components; a great example of many contributions playing together instead of just playing as loud as they can individually. Very creamy mouthfeel and a very classy beer.

Rating #1093, flaske fra Voldby
Rødbrun, grumset øl med en lillebitte skum. Kæmpe gærklumper. Aroma af svesker, blommer, hindbær og portvin. Desværre bliver smagen for sprittet, men har ellers svesker, lakrids, blomme, en mild sødme og fin bitterhed Medium tyk. Lidt en skuffelse for mit vedkommende.

The aroma is full of prunes, raspberries, wine and chocolate. The taste is full of alcohol, prunes, chocolate, wine, caramel and small notes of coffee. The finish is long and bitter. I’m a big fan of these barrel aged beers that had been aged in strong alcohol beverages. There is also big pieces of yeast when the glass is empty. A sign of quality for sure. The color is dark red.

Opaque dark red - brown beer, good pale tan head. Sumptuous smooth palate with mild fine carbonation. Creamy malt with a toffee streak. Dry wood tang leads to clear and present brandy, mellow but fully flavoured. Mild orange hops bring up the rear and add a little bitterness. Semi dry finish. Lovely! Eighteen months ago, this was an appley green mess but it has developed wonderfully.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In short: A sweet woody purple ale of some kind. A rough sipper.
How: Bottle 375ml, consumed with some age on it but still more than 6 years before expiration date!
The look: Cloudy dark red topped by a persistent small beige head.
In long: Nose transpires sweet malts, strong girly scent (perfume-ish), strong barrel presence, dank notes. Taste is very sweet, toasted sugars, caramel, beets (!!!), red berries, notes of soap, a certain spiciness, sawdust sensation, fruity hops resin. Alcohol is apparent but not bothersome. Not a clean elegant beer that’s for sure, it is actually kind of “rough” imho, took me a while to work through my little 375ml. Feels like one of those gimmicky CCB wood and sugars orgy that throws a bunch of stuff at you. Really not my thing, although not unpleasant. Mikkeller is making too many new beers and they cannot keep the quality up with so many new offerings, in fact, statistically speaking by they it took you to read this rating Mikkeller has probably put out two or three new beers.

37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy reddish amber with a lot of sediment and an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is vinous, hops, oak, caramel, and vanilla. Flavour is much like the aroma with a dry finish.
