330ml bottle, with some wacky artwork performing the knock-knock joke whose punchline names the beer. Good work, Mikkeller. Purchased from Berkeley Bowl West in Berkeley, CA.

Pours a deep brown, with translucent edges. Head forms a filmy laced top and a crisper ring of pale brown. Lacing is excellent, tight and intricate. Lighter than expected body, but it holds some nice fine carbonation. Looks pretty decent.

Nose is undeniably odd. Roasted, slightly nutty and quite brown malt tones, giving toasted bread and sweet brioche, mingled with a sharp, bitter-sour citrus tone—peely, dank and potent. Together it provides an earthy, organic character: not far from loamy soil turned with compost. It's rich and pungent, but slightly disconcerting at the same time.

Taste is dark. Indeed, the roast which was present on the nose didn't prepare me for just how sharply dark this was going to be. Bitter chocolate characters, coffee grounds and char are very prominent here, and I believe they're accentuated by the bitter citrus character. This character doesn't linger like hop acids would, but they set off the tastebuds to accept the bitterness from the roasted malts, so they have a similar effect. It's quite an intense experience, and an extremely interesting one.

Feel is light, but decent enough. It doesn't get in the way of the beer by any means.

Overall, this was an odd, but rewarding beer experience. The yuzu doesn't make its own flavour so noticeable, but it does accentuate and distinguish some of the flavours already extant in the beer. I'm not quite sure what to make of it, but I'm very pleased to have tried it.

On tap at Newhall Refinery in Newhall, CA.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. A foamy lattice of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, earth, citrus fruit, and slight hot dog juice aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, char, citrus fruit, and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an odd aroma but solid flavors when the beer warms up.

My first Mikkeller!
A: Dark as night, with lovely lacing. Pours foamy but the head fades rather quickly.
S: Typical porter flavors (smoky, chocolate, tobacco, coffee), only very faint and gentle.
T: Again with your typical porter flavors (and again, fairly gentle on the flavoring), with a well-balanced tart and sweet element from the orange/yuzu. I liked how these flavors complimented each other well.
M: Smooth, silky. Didn't notice carbonation. Mouthfeel kinda reminded me of red wine, even,
O: An interesting and yet highly drinkable porter.
