4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle; pours very dark brown with thin head that dissolves quickly. The aromas are made of citrusy American hops, dried fruit (figs and raisins), toffee and some chocolate. On the palate it’s mediumbodied with a fine balance between the very present sweetness and the bitterness. As always in a Mikkeller brew you DO notice the bitterness, but much less so than the IBU value would indicate, which is definetely due to the residual sugars.
The taste is primarily a nice - not over the top - caramel flavour with coffee notes and of course, plenty of hops.
What can I say? They’ve done it again....

Pours deep clear brown with a big, frothy head. Disappears slowly. Super aroma, lots of chocolate and a little dose of coffee. Lightly roasted with slight notes of dried fruits. High carbonation that mars the mouthfeel a bit. Flavour is wonderfully dry and roasted. Some plums and a great, dark chocolate finish. Almost like eaten 80 % cocoa-chocolate. Nice!

Dark brown colored, slight red hints. Medium sized light brown head. Nice rich Mikkeller aroma: good flowery-vegetables, spices, chocolate, mild licorice, this Danish character from hops and yeast nicely present. Medium bodied. Flavor is even richer with strong spicy tones, yeast, aftertaste dries strongly with again this flowery yeast. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2007
