omhper (19953) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2012
Bottled, from Systembolaget. .Completely black, beige head. Tarry spruce aroma. Sweetish with full body and clean mouthfeel. Massive piney shampoo-like bitterness overkills everything in its way, leaving my tastebuds as sooty ruins. Some spice and caramel, but really - the super aggressive shampoo bitterness is just extreme.

DuffMan (7028) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle, shared with Parksy, Grippitis, and Ian. Very dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, hints of dark fruits and spices. Chocolate centers the palate, but there are distinct woody elements, and some dark fruits here too (plums?cherries?...hard to pin down), but most surprising and pleasant is how the spiciness really comes forward. It is an odd spice character, but in a complementary way-- maybe fennel ? I can’t place it with certainty (the palate is a little worn out at this point in the evening), but I really like it. Mikkeller delivers once again!
