When you think of the word 'Rich' what springs to mind? Bill Gates? Richard Branson? Fair... But when Beer Hawk think of that word, we say this beer should be the official dictionary definition. The aroma is reminiscent of Belgian chocolate, the mouthfeel is thick and gloopy with flavours of tobacco/treacle/molasses and the aftertaste remains with you like a lava cake. We have to sadly limit this to 5 per customer so grab one while you can. When it's gone, it's gone!

Brewery Info

Like all good breweries, there’s an excellent story behind Mikkeller. In 2006 Mikkel Borg Bjergsø was a maths and physics teacher with a growing passion for beer. Inspired by foreign brews, he decided to create something even better himself (for less money!), and so the brewing experiments began. When his home-brew won a blind taste test against Brøckhouse IPA he knew he was onto something, and started entering homebrew competitions - which he invariably won. Combining science with passion, Mikkel began brewing at Danish microbrewery Ørbæk and distributing from a friend’s beer shop.

This in itself was pretty good, but the big breakthrough came when Mikkel added french press coffee to an oatmeal stout. The resulting Beer Geek Breakfast was quickly voted the #1 stout on Ratebeer and the rest, as they say, is history. Although he’s never owned his own brewery, Mikkel constantly invents, creates and collaborates with some of the world’s best breweries to produce truly stunning beers. He’s achieved almost cult-like status and is certainly one of our favourite brewers. If you’re looking for passion, honesty and seriously tasty beer, you’ve come to the right place.

I'd forgotten how much I'd paid for this until I came to write this review...wow.

I found this beer to be very unbalanced. You get a moderate amount of the typical treacle-flavor, on top of a slightly acidic bed of badly-hidden-alcohol.

I quite easily finished it (so it obviously wasn't too unpleasant) but definitely not something I'd buy again.
