750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of light sourness/tartness, dark malts, dark fruits, oak and vanilla, a nice funkiness, and light spices. Flavor the same with a very balanced blend. Average texture. A really cool beer but I wish more stood out about it.

AdamChandler (4757) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Dark plum appearance. Mild head. Smell is fantastic. So cognac and liquor sweetness. Grapey and prune and toffee. Super grape forward. Fig and plum with sugar cane Splenda and some banana runt. The liquor cognac is really easy to pick out. So nice in the finish

Bottle bought @ The Mikkeller webshop. Pours reddish brown with a frothy beige head that leaves lots of spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is tiny malty, fruity and funky with dark bread, pink grapefruit juice, pineapple juice, passion fruit, moist soil, hay, barnyard, leather, raspberries, blackberries and lemon zest. Taste is sour, tiny bitter, malty, fruity and funky with dark bread, caramel, cereal, lemon juice, grapefruit juice, passion fruit, moist hay, barnyard, moist soil and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is soft, dry, tart and medium bodied. Finish is sour , funky and fruity with dark bread, lemon juice, pineapple juice, passion fruit, moist hay, moist soil, leather, barnyard and lemon zest. Really interesting mix of an oud bruin and the tropical fruit funk of the Anchorage brett. Quite cool!

Shared at RBSG 2014 in the Presidential Suite. Tart cherry in the nose. with some bourbon. Strongly acetic and a burning finish. Overall very tart without much else; in a chest burning way without much fruitiness or barnyard.
