My first porter:

Jam, smoke, coffee, stable. A beast. Wondering what the heavier Midnight Porter will taste like.

Hopped to 200+ theoretical IBUs

Bitter lemon on steroids. Very citrussy as well. Not for every day. Yummy.

Up in the beer desert or Calgary visiting family. Pleasantly surprised with the store I found.

Good Bruery Selection, plenty of Californian stuff, Cascade even.

First time trying Nogne too. Thanks to @hc4thehc for the inspiration. Really enjoying this one

Beer question.

 

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.

:lol: 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.

Weekend for some, miniature flags for others.

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.

It's been sitting in the cupboard for 3 years. No good stuff. Really sweet, not refreshing, funky or sour. Unpleasant iron note. Dumped it.

On the plus side - I like your Mikkeller glass. :cheers:

Got one of them as a gift at some small beer festival (where I drank a shitton of blå spøgelse and bought a dozen Mikkeller beers to take home) and half a year later another one as a gift from Séb (Beergium). smile.gif

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. ​

Well, a German "importer" of beer was at the "festival" (7 breweries and them, so more like a small event) and offered blå spøgelse on tap. It was much cheaper than the bottled stuff, I think 4 € for 0.3 or 0.4L and later 6 €. I drank 1-1.5 liters. It was very delicious, from what I remember. But the regular price tag is hefty. Also, it's quite old by now (or did they + Three Floyds make another batch?), so maybe the fruit has died by now?

Edit: Reviews on RB are still positive and praising the blueberry taste. I'd probably get a bottle if you like blueberries cause it's quite unique.

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.

 

Cheers.
