presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, - AUG 22, 2010
Bottle. Very dark brown with tan head and lacing. Aroma is more alcohol from the barrel than hops. Hops seem lost in the alcohol and rich caramel-molasses sweetness. No where near as enjoyable as the non-barrel version. Kind of like a sipping liquere with an unfished roughness.

Quack-Duck (9369) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2015
bottle. Deep dark golden, small head. Brown sugar, coffee, toffee and bitter chocolate, not as bitter as expected, but quite dry.

mijustin (1) - Vernon, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014 does not count
Drank this very late; expiry date was 22/03/13. (Beer had a cork, and was stored in darkness) Poured dark and flat with lots of black liquorice and molasses on the nose. Very pungent. No sediment that I could see. Front: very sweet, fruity (blackberries), and black liquorice. Mid: a bit flat half-way through. End: Big finish. Smoky and oaky, leather, caramel, sherry. (no bitterness since Id aged it for so long) Comments: the aging process definitely smoothed out the hops + bitterness. Very sweet.

slowrunner77 (11487) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
was too expensive for what ends up being not as good a beer as the base (also too expensive). a sweet booziness replaces some of the hop aroma and flavor. unique, but a little odd and just not worth the coin.

Visual: Pours molasses brown with lots of suspended sediment, zero head, just a few countable larges bubbles around the perimeter; Not all that appetizing for a beer. Nose: smoked woody malty sweet brown sugar. (lvl-8)-pungency Attack: FLAT, incoming super sweetness Mid-palate: alcohol, (lvl-8)-sweetness, (MAIN) roasted coffee, malt, brown sugar, cacao nibs, oak, whiskey Finish: orange peel, lingering coffee bitterness + hops, malty sweet finish. Summary: Lots of flavour once you get past the fact that it is non-carbonated. The first few sips are discouragingly uneventful since one would expect a crisp bite when drinking a beers. About a third way through the buzz and (therefore) the character start to emerge. Many others are reporting a head so perhaps this was an expired bottle..? (BB 8/3/2013). Still it was corked. Tasting THIS bottle, its overly sweet and my least favourite so far of all Mikkellers plentiful offerings.

sebletitje (9912) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2014
Bouteille 37.5cl, Bizarre le papier montre une BB 18/03/2013 le papier un BB 22/03/2013. De couleur cuivre prsentant qcq sdiments, col fin blanc cass. Arme est unique. Mattendant un plein de houblons, je me retrouve sous lemprise dun bouquet single malt tourb. Ce dernier le don de prendre le dessus sur les houblons qui dailleurs ne sont pas en reste et parviennent encore offrir qcq effluves citronnes. Palais joue bcp sur le profil tourbe. Ce dernier est dominant et il fallait bien 1000EBU pour arriver couvrir ce dernier. Cest un peu ici que sarrte le ct IPA car ce ct tourbe est trs prsent, dont avis aux amateurs. Amertume citronne perce un peu en toute fin de bouche mais contribue peu en terme de complexit du houblon. Le tout reste lgrement liquoreux sur la fin.

angel77 (3119) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 28, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl en Llamas. 22-05-13. De 2d2espuma. La segunda botella ya. Color negro intenso con espuma oscura que desaparece rpidamente. Cuerpo fuerte y con prcticamente nada de gas. Sabores quemados y tostados con algo de dulce y sobretodo un gran final a madera quemada con notas de madera de barril de whisky. Ligero toque de chocolate. poco amargo, menos del que me esperaba. Aumento del cuerpo y de la sensacin de licor a medida que va calentando. Una gran cerveza de toques quemados y con intenso sabor de madera con el matiz del whisky seco. Imprescindible tomar de nuevo. De las grandes de Mikkeller.

gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2013
375 ml bottle at home. Pours murcky deep reddish amber with a light beige head. Madeira nose with nuts and raisins, dry plums. Does not have the typical DIPA characteristics at all. Body is quite sweet and peated, bitterness only comes in the back. Slightly better than the straight 1000 IBU.

pentaz (1264) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle @ Mikkeller&Friends. Pours light hazy deep red/brown with a small creamy tan head. Aroma is quite malty, dark fruit, complex and layered caramel, chocolate, raisins, oak, iodine, dark toffee, light peat, brown sugar, pine and citrus. Taste is moderate+ sweet and light bitter. Body is light+, texture is sticky, carbonation is soft. Finishes sweet and warming with whisky and wood. Pretty hard to recognize the base-beer. Interesting to see how much time and barrel aging can change a beer. A nice treat.

janubio (777) - SPAIN - MAY 18, 2013
Sample of an out dated bottle and its noticeable, I think. Dark brown lour, with no head and no lace. Smell: At first I only noticed alcohol esters and acetone, then whiskey and chocolate. Very low carbonation and light body. Taste of whisky, chocolate and toffee. Not as bitter as aone could think. Guess ill try to get another one in good conditions, its interesting and it should be much better then.
