CBC Session 3. Nice too see Mikkeller has some beer available this session! It’s opaque black and only has a few tan bubbles for a head. Rich dark malt with a touch of dry bitterness but also good dark chocolate. Sweetish bourbon and tangy fruits. Mild spice and a little vanilla oak. Dried fruits. Smooth dry finish. Rich and tasty.
