A commemorative brew celebrating Kalamazoo Brewing Companyís 4000th batch. Considered to be a "double-mild" in style, Batch 4000 uses Sterling hops from a small farm in the Willamette Valley, and debuts an exclusive barley-malt, by Breiss Malting. It shows off some characteristics from the traditional English Mild, while doubling up the flavor profile and alcohol content. Brewed in February of 2000, this is beer is a one-time only brew.

Re-brewed for Bells 30th Anniversary in 2015

Sampled at Arg0ís Pre-RBSG Tasting at his pad: Golden amber, light haze. Notes of raisin, sherry, juicy caramel. The flavor is rich and chewy. Certain characteristics of quality beer, a bit old, questionably drinkable. Mellow. 8 years old? Sigh.

Thanks to Jason. Several year since this one has touch my lips and I think the time has done it well . Do we have an American Strong Old Ale category? Port, ripe dark fruit and heavy rich cream caramel course through the nose. Lightly oily liquid that thins throughout the sip. Oak, dark ripe fruit, heavy caramel and a touch of german chocolate. A hint of age, but quite refined and enjoyable.

Ungstrup (36901) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a fast dying orange head. The aroma is sweet spicy - with some notes of stale fruits - reminds me of a Belgian Ale. The flavor is very rounded with notes of caramel, malt, lots of fruit, going towards the stale towards the end. The alcohol shows of with a slight bite.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Strongly hazy with a yellowish head. Fat aroma of malt and caramel. Fairly full-bodied dominated by malt and caramel. Rather odd, underlying tang - perhaps itís a slight oxidization

My first Batch. The thing is, however, I am writing this from memory. So I probably will exaggerate. I donít recall it as being as intense as 6000, but it was an incredible experience. I was new to Michigan beer, and this one blew me away with the hops and malts. Fantastic.

Bottle shared by sick_boy282... thanks Alex, youíre my hero! Pours a cloudy brown color with small head and no lacing. Aroma is malty and slightly sweet. Flavor is rich and malty but very smooth and enjoyable. I was very impressed with how well itís help up over the years! Thanks again Alex!

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2006
Rusted ruby. Nice soapy off-white head. Fades to nothing. Alcoholified sweet brownies. Dry port. Soda-like malt, dry edges. Brownies. Oxidation, but okay in here. You can tell its died down perhaps, but it has a nice blend of flavors and has certainly held up exceptionally well over the last many (8?) years...

Big thanks to Jason for sharing this one. Aroma of complex and chewy caramel malt, dried dark fruits, and some fruityness. There was some oxidation that reminded me of smoke. Ruby-orange in color with a super thin head. Chocolate and caramel, fruity malts and again, Iím picking up oxidation in the form of smoke/cardboard. The cardboard isnít strong and doesnít bother me much. Medium body, fairly creamy and fairly sweet.
