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.

[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.
