Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Pours lovely amber chestnut with a small, staying, frothy, off-white head. Heavy caramel aroma, light smokey, some roasted chestnuts, vinious. Low carbonation, fine light oily texture. Flavour has sweetness, rather powerful vinious, caramel malty, light fruity and a good smoke note. Some peity oak in the finish. Perhaps a bit too harsh in alcohol.
Pour is ruddy brownish amber with a thin dense skin of a tan head...smell is boozey and sweet up front with some strong notes of wood...vanilla, molasses, prunes...taste is sweet and one sided with prunes and booze...some hints of char or bitter wood too...quick finish...thin bodied...far from offensive and easily drinkable, but boring. mar (5415) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2010

Thanks for the bottle MagicDave! Wow, a BrewDog Mikkeller collab? YIKES! I should have been prepared for this assault on my senses. It pours reddish brown with a tall fizzy disappearing orange head. The aroma is metallic, tart, spicy and salty with a touch of molasses. Very rude on the palate with apples, vinegar, and a burning alcohol sensation in the back of the throat. It has a bitter semi sweet bakers dark chocolate flavor in the finish. This is brash and way too early to be sampling. I enjoyed it more as I allowed its intoxicating qualities to take effect, but it could definitely use a couple years of age. hopscotch (11078) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Bottle… Hazy caramel ale with no head. The bouquet releases earthiness and whispers of caramel and raw oak. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and understated carbonation. The flavor is alcoholic, bitter and lightly acrid. Finishes raspy, dry and red hot. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian! BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 7, 2010
2010 bottle (Batch 406 marked 11/02/10) thanks to angrypirate06. Pours with a tan head and a brown body. Aroma of alcohol, caramel and brandy. Taste is a bit ashy, alcohol and caramel. A ton of alcohol burn, even for the ABV. Not as much fusel as the burn would indicate though. Dry finish. I think last years version was a bit smoother and more enjoyable. dyetube (1378) - Hurst, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2010
This beer pours a deep muddy amber with a thin off white head. The aromas are dates, leather and pepper. The palate is quite lively and sweet. This was an interesting brew. Cheers!
