Bottle. [thank you, Yespr]
Pours hazy dark amber with a thin rim of foam. Aroma is vinous, sherry, caramel, toffee, light oak. Almost completely flat, but pleasant oily palate. Sweet, malty flavour with caramel, toffee, lightly toasted and a great, slight note of milk chocolate. Good hoppy bite in the finish. Fine.

The very last bottle of this unique masterdon from Mikkellers young days. Thanx alot for opening up your closet for these last bottles of goodies Mikkel. This one used to be very very hoppy to balance the huge sweetness - over the years most of the hoppiness has disapeared though. The nose has a lot of spices in it with a huge sweetness on top. The taste is sweet like crazy with a distant taste of alcohol...and it is a bastard that holds 15 % alcohol. The carbonation is very low and the palate is yhick and sticky - it has allmost turned in to an interesting dessert-wine topped with the taste of cloves and orange-peel. Thx Mikkel

500ml bottle shared courtesy of Ughsmash (another big thanks for taking yet another beer off my wish list). Bottle labeled best before 2050. Poured a deeper orangish color with almost no off white head. Hmmm, interesting. Aromas of fruitiness, caramel, dark fruits, and some citrus. Tastes of oranges, citrus, caramel, dark fruits and all around fruity. Syrupy and sweet body. Alcohol burn in the finish. The last sip reminded me of cough syrup. I had a harder time putting the aromas and tastes into words on this one. Wow, 500 IBUs...

500mL bottle. Poured medium golden with hints of copper and just a few loose bubbles of head around the edges. The aroma was very rich with molasses, treacle, and darker fruity sweetness leading the way.. drier, somewhat oxidized fruity hoppage.. syrupy overall. The flavor also had a rich syrupy sweetness with caramel, darker fruit (including raisins), and molasses.. bitterness was moderate-to-high, but far removed from what the label states.. you really feel the power toward the end. Thick and syrupy on the plate with no apparent carbonation.. the warmth really showed in the belly.. OK mouthfeel. This was an entirely interesting brew, and I’m glad for the opportunity to try it.
