UPDATED: SEP 12, 2006 Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2006.
Looks like a perfectly made espresso; black and with a dark brown head.
The aroma is an explosion of espresso, notes of grapefruit from the American hops, tobacco, red and black fruits, dark chocolate, smoke and noticeable alcohol.

On the palate it is full-bodied to say the least; it’s actually massive beyond description. But even though there is quite a lot of sweetness, it never gets cloying, as the alcohol and the acidity from the roasted malts and the lactobacillus adds the balance.

A superb beer that belongs among the fines brews I’ve ever had.

090906; bottled. The aroma and taste has developed even further.
Now the bretty horseblanket aromas from the lambic yeast are dominating more adding even more complexity to this fantastic beer. The aftertaste lasts for more than a minute. Once again a perfect score. Thanks Mikkel and Keller for opening this one of only 25 bottles of this brew.

Draught @ KØ 2006: Pitch black coloured. Dense brown head. Fruits, grass, herbs, cocoa, loads of roast, molasses, brown sugar, loads of alcohol, burnt sensations, raisins, light prunes, liqourice, spices, you name it this beer got it. Both aroma and flavour is breathtaking. Can’t really say, I’ve had anything like this before. Full, sticky mouthfeel. And then the bitterness. Awesome. Man, this is one great nearly imposible to describe beer. Its BIG, complex and yet very balanced. Kudos to Mikkel and Keller for this one. I could drink this again and again, and can’t do anything than award it with the highest possible numbers. I WANT MORE!!!!!!

big huge thanks to greg for obtaining this bottle. big thanks to Dak for inviting me to this highly insane tasting. This is the most perfect beer that i have ever had to date. I would gladly fly to the end of the earth for this beer again. poured an amazingly beautiful black with a copper head. aroma was dark fruits, chocolate, fudge, earth, and cinnamon. flavor was equally as impressive with fudge, earth, dark roast, dark fruit, and a spicy quality that really stood out and wowed me. body was insanely rich and smooth. I am seriously humbled by this beer and the chance to drink it. those tampa guys rock and really know how to show an out-of-towner a great tasting. oh yeah and this is rating 2000 baby!!!
