Copenhagen Beer Fest. Had a few by the time this came out on Saturday. Intense spicy apple nose. Rich malt and more intense spicy apple. Wasn’t capable of more depth by that but the beer was clearly unapologetically Calvedos!

2009-05-16, draught at Københavnske Øldage 2009, 8-5-9-4-17=43
Hazy dark amber color; small creamy head. Nice creamy aroma, very strong: caramel, apples (how?), possibly vanilla. Strong body, caramel flavor with strong alcohol feeling, apples again. Extreme as usual from Mikkeller. I prefer Barley Wines like the Bad Worse, but very enjoyable anyway!

Handbottle, 20 days later, 7-4-9-4-17=41
Hazy brown color. I will say only that it has an excellent caramel flavor, woody, with warming alcohol.
