mikkeller 1000 IBU
« on: July 12, 2011, 12:44:22 PM »
So I tried this beer because I have seen in on the shelf a few times and it was on tap at the local bottle shop/tasting room. I know it's gimmicky and you can't go over 100ibu etc. I will say this, this was the Hoppiest most bitter beer I have ever tasted. It was kinda gross at first. Just a huge hoppy slap in the face. But after all the tastebuds responsible for tasting bitter had been wiped out by the first couple of sips there was actually a nice little malty sweetness in the background.

over all I would say that I will NOT be drinking this beer again but it was fun to try. I suggest anyone who feels a beer can't be too hoppy give this one a try and let me know if you still think that.

Interesting. I once had some Russian 100% cocoa chocolate to which I had a similar response.

You should try the barrel-aged one. Top!

does the barrel subdue the hops at least a little? This was on tap I don't know if it was barrel aged or no.

Dunno, haven't had the non-BA. But it was sure good. Ridiculously hoppy, sure, but only pleasantly bitter.
