look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

11.2 fl oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My seventh beer from the Mikkeller Single Hop series. Scored a whole lot of these beers from Benz Beverage Depot in Cedar Rapids, Iowa for something ridiculous like $1.75 a piece. Expectations are fairly high based upon my previous experience with these beers.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours about two fingers of creamy fluffy beige colored head on top of a dark burnt sienna orange, borderline mahogany colored body. Lots of dark yeast sediment floating at the bottom of the glass. A bit darker than some of the others.

S - Smell resembles many of the others, if just a little bit more subdued. Earthy herbal qualities, dirty twiggy hops, caramelized malt sweetness, oak, & vanilla.

T - Taste follows the nose: earthy twiggy hop presence, herbal qualities, vanilla, oak wood, and some extremely strong, sweet, and authentic caramel / toffee flavors. Perhaps some dark fig / date presence and some nuttiness on the finish.

M - Feel is creamy and smooth, and bitter and dry in the finish, with some lingering herbal earthiness & green apple skin sweetness.

Overall, while it wasn't the best I've had, definitely one of the more unique beers in the Mikkeller Single Hop series. A very distinctive, off-kilter variety of hop is showcased here, and very nicely at that. A hop variety I would like to see used more often.

Mikkeller Galena ---4/5.
