Bottle (Fra Mikkeller & ___ Til ___).
Black with a nice looking brown head leaving lacing.
Aroma: roasted, creamy, spices, snus, berries, spruce.
Taste: roasted, coffee, dark and red berries, snus, cocoa, light salmiak, some citrus hops, rubber, quite bitter.
Above medium bodied.
This is nice, but a year in the cellar to smooth off some of the edges would likely make it even better.
