Bottle, 22oz, at RBNAG-11. An unclear, brown beer topped by a small, light beige head. Ham-like notes in the aroma, roasted, and with some caramel and dried fruits. Some bitterness towards the end of the flavor, with ham, roasted notes, caramel and dried fruits. Full body. A bit too much on the ham-side this one, sort of unusual, and also quite nice. 111015

Tap @ Mikkeller and Friends, Cph. Pours deep red to black with a small, creamy, beige film head. Aroma has light smoke, somewhat stale, dark chocolate, nuts, soft roasted. Low carbonation, fine dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has firm roasted malts, dark chocolate, affirmative smoke, fairly sweet. Lingering malty bitter finish. A bit simple and brash really.
