Black 黑 – Mikkeller

Mikkeller is a phantom brewery from Copenhagen, Denmark that contract their beer to be brewed all over the world.  This brew was brewed at De Proefbrouwerij in Belgium and is called ” Black 黑 “.  This is an extreme beer in every way!  This beer is aged on French Whiskey barrels for a full 3 months.  The beer pours a deep opaque black with a chocolate brown head.  The aroma consists of whiskey, vanilla, roasted malts and licorice.  The flavour is of whiskey, vanilla, burnt malts, licorice, wood, tobacco, chocolate, hops bitterness and some mild alcohol.  The beer also has a pretty good warming effect.  The alcohol content of the beer is 17.5%… yes you read that correctly it is 17.5% and only tastes mildly of alcohol!!!  This is an amazingly smooth beer and is very dangerous as it just does not taste strong at all!

Just to show I am not crazy it has a rating of 98/100 on Ratebeer.com and 85/100 on beeradvocate.com.

Commercial Description:  The strongest beer in Scandinavia. This imperial stout is the craziest, wildest, strongest beer from Mikkeller to this date. Not for sissies…….! Sample it fresh or store it for many many years to come!
Ingredients : Water, malt, roasted barley, dark cassonade, ale yeast and champagne yeast.
