Amager Mikkeller Kølle pours up with a light carbonation that creates a small beigeish head that neatly sits atop the hazy, orangish-amber body. The aroma is very grassy with an almost cheesy/stale hop character that unforntunately dominates over the rich underlying Munich maltiness & fruitiness that's reminiscent of carmalized apples, ripe figs & spicy prune compote. There's a noticeable alcohol character as it warms. The flavor starts off with a heavy toastiness followed by some burnt caramel sweetness supplimented by a moderate fruitiness, but again the heavy "odd" stale hop character(s) & bitterness combined with a wet, leathery character really detracts from the overall enjoyment. There's a bit of cheek warmth on the back end that enhances the complexity. I bet the Simcoe hops really stood out in its youth, but unfortunately this one has aged past its prime, but it still rates because of the rarity factor. This would pair well with some traditional soused herring & mild Edam cheese. Here's to Amager which is one of the smallest breweries in the world!

Skål! Beertracker

Bottle from Danish shop owner Svend Nymen. Misleading picture as this is the ordinary bottle collaboration in silver, not the bourbon cask gold. Pours ale white whine colour with lots of white foam that sticks to the glass. Boozy with full mouthfeel and rich bitter finish. Decent barleywine.

Bottled. Pours a murky dark-brown with an eggshell head. Decent lacing. Incredibly sweet smell, with plenty of brown sugar. Some dark fruits. Bready. A lot going on, basically, though nothing that's outwardly appealing. Yeasty, bready, fruity taste, with plenty of alcohol. Very sweet, and slightly chocolaty. Strong alcohol in both the taste and the warm feel. Best left to cellar.

Thanks to madmitch76, from over on ratebeer, for this fine brew. This tiny bottle pours deep amber-copper with full tan head and spotty lacing. The aroma is subtle yet complex with dark fruity notes, some apricot, mild spices, sweet tangelo and pineapple. The taste is smooth with sweet malts, sweet prunes, apricots, sweet malts, some grapefruit and tangelo citrus hoppy goodness. Pine hops join in as this head to the finish along with slight caramel candy notes. Yum.

T: Malts, Caramel, Citric notes, Exotic fruit.

M: Very balanced brew that ends with a pleasant bitterness.

It was nice to finally get to try this joint venture between Amager and Mikkeller. It's a very decent brew but i've had better barleywines.
