omhper (24524) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2010
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen on two consecutive nights Dark brown, no head. Cherryish nose with plenty of acidity. Sweet, despite the acidity with dense full body. Sour carameland sweet syrup. Feels heavy and compact. peppery alcohol plays a significant part and adds further burn to the stinging sourness. A beer with everything at once, yet not much complexity. A very interesting experment, but I dont know what to do with such a beer. A tough beer to rate - like no other beer Ive tasted, but in the end I figure I just dont like it.

On tap @ Mikkeller bar. The aroma is winey and has raisins, plums, grapes, black currant. Brown-reddish coloured beer with no head. The taste is sour, winey, sweet and fruity. Medium bodied. Very complex. Never tasted such a wine/beer. Mindblowing.

Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph.
Pours muddy brown with a small, frothy, off-white head that soon fizzes away. Aroma is crazy! Plums, red apple, sourness, blue grapes, tannins, black currants, oak. High carbonation, great dry and light mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of sweetness, caramel. But also lives up to its name, black currant tartness, very vinious, almost menthol-like, raisins, grapes. Almost out of proportion and difficult to compare to anything, let alone the RB scale. Fabolous, but also crazy as f..k.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAY 17, 2010
Tap @ Mikkeller Bar. Reddish black, beige rim, no head. intriguing aroma of both leather, tar and smoke, folowed by a taste with a tartnes, some wet dirt and forrset berries. Not at all knowing wahats going on here, the brew stries me as a Imp. Stout on a Marsala trip. Very complex and extremly interesting.

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - MAY 12, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2010 Tab @ Mikkeller Bar. Hazy and muddy brown/red pour with no head at all. Aroma has a lot of rum, vanilla, oak, port wine, alcohol, a bit of sourness, red berries, sweetness, sour berries. Taste has rum, port wine, vanilla, oak, wood, sour wine, alcohol. Big body, medium, fizzy carbonation, long duration. This is a massive beer. It tastes and smells like a mix of rum, port wine and red wine. Indeed different from anything else Ive tried. Goes to your head very quickly.

Is it a beer? IS it a plane? No, its Mikkeller again. Noe carbonation, lots of sweetness, vinous sour palate. I dont know if this is an experiment or it was intended this way. Keep them coming!
