Mikkeller Vik. Three Floyds tap takeover. Glass share thanks to Fonefan who wouldn’t reveal where his glass came from. Maybe (shock horror) he pilfered it! Clear deep red beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and semi dry, mild fine carbonation. Paint like ester sweetness. Mixed berries, touch of spice. Tangy berry finish. Not Three Floyds finest but okay.

TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2014
750 ml bottle picked up from the brewery (Munster, IN). Shared with the IU Crew. Pours a rich deep blackish pour, dark and ominous, richly dark. Some gentle brownw glow on the edges. Frothy light brown head sits atop ok, sticks around well and laces ok. Aromas are touches of soap, florals, and oak. Gentle vanilla, warmth, touches of tannic blackberry and richer acetylhyde like green apple issues are pervasive. Some gentle seediness, cocoa and oak. Initial is medium bodied, a touch thinner with some oak, gentle roast and faint cocoa. Firmer blackberry cassis element is a bit seedy, tannic with gentle tartness and roast play. Some nice oak, gentle spirit and vanillin. Some nice blackberry skin really gives some life. Backend is dry, tannic and oaky. Decent whiskey barrel is flavorful but not hot. Green apple tartness, awkward. A bit flawed, something went wrong/is going wrong here.
