faroeviking (10295) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 31, 2010
Unclear darkish amber colour, small white head ok lacing. Really sweet caramel toasty malty hoppy fruity aroma. Sticky mouthfeel. Very, very, very, very sweet cloying caramel syrup toasty malty frutish alco flavour, rather unpleasant. Long lasting too sweet alco finish.

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2010
A-pours an orangish amber color, quite clear, with an off white head with a good lace. S-the nose has huge hops, cheese up front, notes of funk, a caramel malt lies up front but citrus and grapefruit take over big time and dont quite. T-again huge hops, cloying sweetness up front, tons of cheese, notes of sulfer, hints of caramel, tons of citrus, grapefruit, tangerine. tons of hops in this with a light bitterness. M-a little grainy on the palate with a medium body and lots of carbonation and a crisp finish. a little syrupy but soft on the tongue. D-this is different, the flavors are off and dont work well together. the hops and cheese just dont seem to be a nice mix. not very enjoyable but the huge hop finish is interesting.

DocLock (10091) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2011
12.7 ounce bottle from Capones. Pours relatively clear dark straw with minimal white head. Quite frankly, this one looks wimpy. Nose is perfumy floral spices, hops, and sadly some plasticy fusels, almost to the level of a yellow rain coat thrown in a blender. Tastes rich, sweet, with notes of malt, syrupy honey, dark fruit, floral spices, and hops. Comes off like a spicier Irish Mist mixed with apple wine. Heat is apparent early and often. This one is unique and unconventional, but it cannot be denied that it is a bit of a mess. This one makes Weyerbacher Insanity seem like Fullers Vintage Ale. Rerated 11:51, almost finished. This one degrades as it warms, getting pretty bad late. This is the first Mikkeller beer that I have had trouble finishing.

4/10 i mrkheten. Luktar spritigt och lite blommigt. Lite frn och oljig, ganska st och spritig i smaken. Spritig och st i eftersmaken.

mcberko (15013) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2014
375mL bottle, pours a dark amber with small bubbles as head. Nose brings out lots of caramel, dark fruits and alcohol - very potent. Flavour screams dark fruits, with loads of dates, figs, toffee, port, grapes and loads of alcohol. Too much for me - the alcohol is overburdening, though its not really that boozy for the ABV. Complex and drinkable slowly, but it gets really harsh after a while. Not my thing at all.

Hansen (8489) - Assentoft, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2010
Nice color, ruby-brown, but no head. Heavy aroma, sweet, odd kind of port-wine. Sharp pepper. Heavy sweet flavor, sharp alcohol. Buy a good sherry or port instead of this beer.

delnoche (505) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - JUN 7, 2013
12.7fl oz wax sealed bottle poured into a pint glass. Cloudy orange with a small white cap. Aroma is candy sugar, honey, biscuit. Flavor is honey, honey, biscuit, alcohol kick, and honey. Wow. Majorly sweet. Alcohol very warming. Definitely a slow sipper. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bacterial (2888) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle shared at Darkness Day 2015, somehow forgot to put my entry in. This was a 2011 bottle. My notes: Flat. Oxidized. Garbage.

PhillyCraft (6309) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours a moderately carbonated pinkish orange. Medium head, small amount of sticky white lacing. Aromas and taste of bannana bread, fuel, slight dogfish nail polish remover yeast, sweet barley, tons of caramel malt and crystal malt. I understand this beer was 18% but it was still very hot in the chest. Not hidden well at all. Finishes with a boozey mango mead flavor and aftertaste

JaBier (7146) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Tap at Holy Grale for Zwanze Day 2013. Pours clear amber with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, creamy sweetness and some fruit. Malty flavor with slight banana and alcohol before a syrupy finish. Not my thing.
