Draught @ Mikkeller Barlusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Aroma is sweet but somewhat straightforward with soy sauce, licorice. Flavour has salty licorice, soy sauce, some coffee and distangt rubbery tones. Hides the ABV rather well. Perhaps a bit too salty and I also expect more richness with ABV like this. Starts to feel more rich when this warms up. Bourbon steps forward.
Draught @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Extremely black pour with a beige head. Aroma of roastiness, molasses, chocolate and grass. Rich flavour of dark bitter chocolate, wooden notes, elegant sherry notes, biscuit and licorice. Full bodied and oily mouthfeel. Heavy and enjoyable.
