Thin but durable foam appears when gently pouring from this gold wrapped bottle from Mikkeller. It has a very vinous aroma where little cherry stands out. The taste is rich, thick, inter alia, roasted malt, prune and cherry. In its heavy fruit nuances and vinous complexity appears also a hint of dark chocolate. Estimates protracted fruity aftertaste with warming alcohol to follow. Certainly a beer that should be enjoyed for a real gourmet dinner. The very vinous character and distinct flavor of alcohol in the final, causes it to protrude slightly from its beer style as dubbel. I think the closer acts as a cross a dubbel and a Belgian quadrupel. So if you expect a good full dubbel you should maybe choose something else, for Mikkeller has once again challenged the usual expectations and created something ground-breaking. rouhlas (3986) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JUN 26, 2015

Note: ridiculously expensive!
Clear dark amber to red brown beer, aery irregular fizzy beige head, unstable, dissipates quickly. Aroma: very oxidized, lots of caramel, sherry notes, bit nutty, port, alcohol. MF: soft to no carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of milk chocolate, caramel, bit sugary, soft bitterness, bit lemony, sour. Aftertaste: very oxidized, caramel, nutty, lots of chocolate, little bitter, alcohol, sugary. Damn, I bought this bottle like 3 years ago, but apparently the beer was already 2 years old, then... To conclude: NEVER, EVER, EVER do this again, just put (preferably bottle) dates on bottles, all right? Kthnxbye!
