Draugh. The worlds best beer, period!!! If I were to only pick one alcoholic beverage to drink for the rest of my life, this would be it. Combining the flavours of beer and port in such a perfect way unlike anything I’ve ever tried before. Port, port and more port in both aroma and flavour. A nose of dark ripe fruit/plums, raisin, chocolate and cocoa along with a matching flavourprofile wich also adds elements of caramel, makes this beer truly outstanding to anyone with a sweet tooth. If you love ports, you’ll love this one.

Wow. I was speechless after drinking this beer. I have had other Mikkellers that were less than spectacular, but this one was simply outstanding. Huge thanks to IBrew2or3 for sharing this one. Pours dark brown with a slight off-white head. Nose is chocolate, slight roast, cinnamon, spice, booze, pepper, mint, tobacco, earthy spice, chocolate, and a slight hint of coffee. Flavor is better than the nose, if such a thing is possible. This beer was simply outstanding. Medium bodied and complexity incarnate.

Black colour with a light brown head. Light roasted, vinous, fruity aroma with notes of chocolate and wood. Malty, fruity flavor with vinous notes and hints of wood and alcohol. Superb beer!
