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 wasn’t quite sure what to make of this one. It’s 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 didn’t really work for me.

@dmacs-750ml bottle-thanks to jtclockwork for sharing–pours a rich/foamy brown head and black color that sheets the glass. Aroma is rich dark malt-molasses, earthy, dark fruit-prune/raisin/cherry, spice. Taste is dark malt-chocolate/molasses, earthy hops, some ashy.

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 floyd’s 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 Kerr’s Berlin Noir with another Mikkeller killer beer.

Bouteille de 750ml. Faux bouchon de liège (plastique). La mousse impressionne sur cette bière acajou foncée, les reflets rouges sont bien apparent. Les arômes de pamplemousse, de beurre et de caramel s’entremêlent. La beurre détonne du lot. En bouche le liquide est crémeux, moelleux, l’alcool n’est pas trop présent sauf pour une légère amertume en fin de bouche. Le goût est très malté, le beurre fondu est aussi présent. Est-ce que la texture crémeuse serait le beurre ?

Draft at CCB Nielsbohrium Release Party. Pours very dark brown with a medium off white head. Aroma is raisins, figs, cinnamon, mollasses, and coca cola. Flavor is strong of figs, caramel, coca cola, raisins, cinnamon, unsweetened chocolate, and plums. Med/full body with decent heat. I liked this alot...very interesting.

Koelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
Herber Antrunk mit geringem Malzanteil, stimmig aber sehr mild. Das Aroma „herb-malzig“ bleibt führend, so scheint das Bier monoton, zudem zu trocken. Im Abgang zusätzlich 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.
