I Love Alpha Klaus but this version was way off,Bottle version it poured brown with a nice tan head but the aroma was like it was spoiled and rotten,the flavor was the same,they should just leave this one alone and stick with the original.CHEERS!

This one poured a dark bronw with a tan head. Aroma was of of chocolate, barrel, and rotten fruit. Flavor was very sweet, all cassis, but a weird funky rotting taste. Just weird and not good.

Mikkeller Vik. Three Floyds tap takeover. Glass share thanks to Fonefan who wouldn’t reveal where his glass came from. Maybe (shock horror) he pilfered it! Clear deep red beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and semi dry, mild fine carbonation. Paint like ester sweetness. Mixed berries, touch of spice. Tangy berry finish. Not Three Floyds finest but okay.

Shared at a DLD bottle share. Pours a dark brown black with minimal head. Aroma is slightly nutty. Not getting any black current in this one. Average at best.

2013 bottle #69 in trade - Pours a rich mahogany brown. Aroma is of deep fruit - almost like a port. Flavor is....unique. Almost a sour wine thing going on. For me, too much sour fruit - not enough to be a real sour - but enough that it was at times unpleasant to drink. Flavor grew on me a bit by the end of my glass, but if you handed me a bottle of it I’d probably pass on it.

750-ml bottle from 3f. would’ve preferred fruitier, like the variant with Cherries. rating #1!
