Ppurs very dark brown. Nose is roasted malt and dried prunes. Taste is brown sugar, burnt sugar, burnt malt, bit of pear, toffee.Roasted bitter and sweet malt on palate. Very alcoholic. Not enough fruit to counter the dry roasted flavours and strong alcohol for me.

I wasnt quite sure what to make of this one. Its certainly got the maltiness of a big bock, and a chewy palate but it was a bit unbalanced. I think I might have enjoyed a small taste on a cold night, but on the whole it didnt really work for me.

Mikkeller frelser. On tap s mikkeller bar... Pours a semi-lively cola dark brown pour with a quickly fading light beige head... Aroma of a malty chocolate and caramel malt presence, softer yet well-presented grains and a touch of roast... Dark fruit and caramel upfront, mostly sweet with a residual lasting sweetness. Chocolate and a slight faint roast on the backend. Medium to full bodied. Pretty nice for a doppelbock, somewhat resembling three floyds creeper to a certain degree but not quite at the same level of enjoyment. 8/4/7/4/14

Bottle, 75 cl. Color : dark brown with a superb mocha head. Aromas : roasted malts, chocolate, grapes, figs, hops, molasses, vermouth hints, alcohol and spices. Flavours : strong raisins, nice roastiness, bitter chocolate, hops again and fruity alcohol. Palate : medium to full body, soft carbonation, thick texture. Finish : hot and bitter, quite strong roasted notes. Overall : perfect sunday afternoon. Philip Kerrs Berlin Noir with another Mikkeller killer beer.

Bouteille de 750ml. Faux bouchon de lige (plastique). La mousse impressionne sur cette bire acajou fonce, les reflets rouges sont bien apparent. Les armes de pamplemousse, de beurre et de caramel sentremlent. La beurre dtonne du lot. En bouche le liquide est crmeux, moelleux, lalcool nest pas trop prsent sauf pour une lgre amertume en fin de bouche. Le got est trs malt, le beurre fondu est aussi prsent. Est-ce que la texture crmeuse serait le beurre ?

Koelschtrinker (19513) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
Herber Antrunk mit geringem Malzanteil, stimmig aber sehr mild. Das Aroma herb-malzig bleibt fhrend, so scheint das Bier monoton, zudem zu trocken. Im Abgang zustzlich hopfig. Naja... /8/8/10//8

Bottle shared by jtclockwork, thanks James. Poured a deep dark body under a small to average sized deep beige head. Aroma of dark fruit, alcohol, cinnamon, berries and vanilla. Flavor of raisin, dry chocolate, vanilla, and some dark bread. This one melds great and all the flavors/aromas are kick ass when combined.
