Mikkeller: Black BA Oloroso 43.0% [375ml]
They say "The Mikkeller Spirits Black series is the sine qua non of Mikkeller Spirits. Harnessing the skills of our collaborators Braunstein Distillery we decided to distil one of our flagship beers: the Mikkeller Black. This 17,5% ABV imperial stout showed great potential for distilling, a great beer turned into a great spirit. Using a copper still we distil one small batch at a time. We select a small special cask for each batch to age on. These batches are exclusive and very limited editions. The selected casks give the different batches uniqueness in taste, aroma and colour. They are all bottled without chill or charcoal for the perfect flavour."
We say "This is whiskey but not as you may know it, it is fruity and clean with the beer lending a hoppiness and crisp dark malts, the barrel aging has smoothed out some of the rougher notes. Aged in sherry barrels, which lend dark chocolate, ripe dark fruits and a nuttiness. Enjoy it by itself or as part of your favourite cocktail."
