Draught at "The Blue Monk" Mikkeller takes over. Pour is pitch black, tan head that is not very thick. Lacing hangs like a clumpy sheet on the walls of the glass. Smells so sweet and caramelized malt. Taste is incredibly sweet like molasses. Maybe a little woodiness as well. This was off charts of good flavor. I’m so glad I got to experience it on draught.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2011 Dark amber colour with a beige head. An aroma of port, liqurice, raisins, dark sugar, metallic and toffee. A flavor of sweets, liqurice, raisins, dark fruits, toffee and bitterness in the finish.

draft at Blue monk, Buffalo, NY> darker cola pour. big boozy aroma, of rich caramel maltiness, raisins & an assortment of other dried fruits. Taste was boozy richness up front with lots of dried dark fruits. STRONG & that lingers for awhile. A definite sipper, flavor ful but it wears the 11+% very evidently

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.
