O’hare’s Beer Club April 2014 Box
Mikkeller is a gypsy 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 “Mikkeller Dry Stout (Sauternes Edition”. This stout was aged in Sauternes wine barrels. The beer pours a opaque black with a brown head. The aroma consists of roasted malts, wine, oaky and chocolate. The flavour is of roasted malts, smoke, wine, grapes, dark fruits, chocolate and some funky notes. The alcohol content comes in at 4.1% with an IBU of 20. People seem to be split on this beer as some places give it a 99/100 rating and some give it 54/100. I come in on the much higher side as I really enjoyed this beer!
Food Pairing according to O’hare’s Beer Club notes are as follows: Dark chocolate truffels
