Jam, smoke, coffee, stable. A beast. Wondering what the heavier Midnight Porter will taste like.
When placing my order with Beergium the other day I noticed that Mikkeller's Black was showing on their website as 15.7% rather than the usual 17.5%. I assumed they had transposed the figure as it is not uncommon for the information on their website to be a little misleading.
However, when unpacking my bottles there it is on the label 15.7%. Did this change at the same time as the label? Does anyone know how else the recipe has changed?
I haven't had a Black for a year or so (since the label change) and that was definitely the higher ABV.
The old Black was reputedly 500 IBUs and I can believe that. I have yet to try the new batch so will report back once I do.
Love Port Brewing.
First Prairie that isn't an Imperial Stout. Very nice - fresh and spritzy with a flowery hop presence.
Second bottle of this and it is even better than I remembered. Massively complex - chocolate, leather, tobacco, oak and a redcurrant tartness. Sublime.
My brother has just come back from Belgium and bought back some Trappist cheeses. Whilst sacrilege in these parts I confess to enjoying the cheeses more than the beers.
That was some free gift from Bergium but I suspect you put a lot of custom their way.
How did you find the blå spøgelse out of interest?
I keep resisting as I don't have many people who enjoy sours to share it with and a whole bottle (75cl) can often be too much of a good thing.
That was certainly a good price.
It is the 3 Floyds one I was talking about - I hadn't realized the first batch was just Mikkeller.
This is the bottle that has been looking at me for the last few orders. Only just done an order but if it is there the next time I will buy one.
