look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

11.2 fl oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. I recently stumbled upon a bunch of these beers lately, and this is going to be my second beer from the Mikkeller Single Hop series. I just drank Duvel Tripel Hop 2013 Sorachi Ace yesterday, so I figured I would try out this version to see if I notice any further similarities.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours three big fingers of creamy fluffy beige head. Body is a beautiful light brown / dark burnt sienna orange color with lots of sediment floating around the glass. Looks great. Some nice thin rings of lace.

S - Wow, beautiful aroma. Creamy smooth caramelized malt presence, Belgian yeast / funk, and lots of earthy wood / vanilla character, with an almost slight hint of bourbon barrel in there. Smells truly wonderful.

T - Taste follows the nose, smooth caramel malts, earthiness, leafy herbal hops, and a creamy twiggy vanilla / wood character reminiscent of some nice bourbon barrel aging. I am definitely enjoying this one.

M - Feel is smooth and creamy. A bit of sticky sweetness lingering on the palate, but an otherwise clean and easy finish. Perfect low carbonation.

Overall, I thought it was a more enjoyable beer than the other Mikkeller Single Hop beer I tried yesterday, Mikkeller Warrior, and definitely a wonderful way to showcase the beauty of Sorachi ace hops. WIthout question, this is a beer worth trying if you can get your hands on some.

Mikkeller Sorachi Ace ---4.5/5
