COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
1/4 of the experimental X series presented by Mikkeller at Københavnske Øldage 2006. X Big Tony is a tribute to Tony - a great guy, a big fan of Mikkeller and a regular at Ølbutikken. This IIIPA is a true mad man!! At alc. 15% vol. and 500+ IBU’s (!!!) it simply doesn’t get any bigger than this....! Cheers Tony :-)

Dark amber beer with a nice beige head. Low saturated. Smells sweet, malty, caramel and a bit of hops, hint of raisins and a little bit yeasty. Has a alcoholic mouth feel and medium saturation. leaves a long sweet-bitter but great palate!

jesperhammer (2926) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2013
21-NOV-2013, draft @Mikkeller & Friends. Hazy dark amber with lastig tan head. Wonderfull aroma with sweet bread, dried fruit, touch of spice, orange peel. Taste same. Sweet but never cloying. A little bitter. Alcohol can be tasted. Very full body with medium carbonatio. The carbonation makes it easyer drinking. Really a big one but 15%...? Really? Fantastic brew. Love barley wine.

Draft as Big Tony 2. A hazy dark amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of hops, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, alcohol, caramel, and candy sugar, leading to a dry alcoholic finish.
Earlier Rating: 10/3/2006 Total Score: 4.3
[Another century celebrated with a Mikkeller beer - this time 6800] A hazy amber beer with bubbly off-white head. The aroma is sweet with a complex combination of fruit, hops, grass, grapefruit, and pine needles. The flavor is a crazy explosion in the mouth - but in the good sense. It is very sweet, but in a nice juice way and not sticky as very sweet beers usually get - the sweetness is acompanied by strong hoppy notes with citrus, grapefruit, and alfa acids. Soon the alcohol makes it presence known, though in a very subtle way - especially taken the 15% ABV into account, it is more like a warming sensation on the tongue and the palate, but a very discrete one. The end is dry, sweet, and bitter - with the hops and the alcohol mixing in perfect harmony. The mouthfeel is silky soft, but the big body is felt.
