beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - DEC 13, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2012 Black, small to medium tan head. Chocolate, some coffee, dark fruit. Spices are subtle. Full body. Excellent balance and finish. Yet to have a Mikkeller beer I wasnt impressed with.

chocolate, coffee, wine, woody scent. dark brown almost black color. Initial sweet chocolate taste, a bit too bitter for me. Wasnt expecting it to be bitter. Other than that, pretty good.

Bov (12637) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 12, 2012
from Erzbierschof - black beer with a rather poor beige foam left; aroma of black chocolate with some coriander on top of it; pretty sweet; full-bodied; a light earthy tartness, residual sweetness with hints of candi sugar and chocolate; some lingering sharpness - not really convincing

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2012 Bottle shared with rbrazell, thanks! Pours a thick brownish-black from the bomber with thin tan head and light lacing. Aroma of red wine and chocolate. Taste is dark chocolate, bitter hops, spices that remind you of christmas, with a dry, ashy, chcolatey finish. Booze catches up as a burn in your stomach. Good stuff.

Deep brown pour with a small tan head. Chocolate, salt, ash notes of coffee and figs on the nose with bits of wood and vanilla. Chocolate covered raisins on front of the tongue with Belgian yeast, spices with hints of coffee. Medium bodied with hints of booze and a quick finish. Not bad.

Might need a rerate on this, as this did little for me. Found it to have little body for 11%, seemed underdone and wasnt exactly brimming with flavour. It certainly wasnt bad - the dark fruits, figs, cinammon and vanilla were nice, but it didnt go anywhere or hold my interest for long. Might need some time to come together. Body seemed a bit underwhelming and a tad undercarbonated.

Draft. Dark brownish maroon color, nice dark brown head, solid lacing. Aroma os slightly medicinal coffee. Taste is coffee spiked with a schnapps of some sort. Muvh tastier than the aroma would suggest.
