Mikkeller From Via To (Bourbon Barrel Aged)
Mikkeller From Via To (Bourbon Barrel Aged) is a Baltic Porter. The bottle proclaims this is a “holiday ale brewed with spices, aged in bourbon barrels”. This is a most confusing series from Mikkeller with so many slight name variations and releases. In any case this pours with an absolutely beautiful & frothy tan/chocolate colored head. The aroma is outstanding with a lot of wonderful bourbon on the nose. I’m getting tastes of bourbon and some mild dry roasted malts, generic spices with hints of molasses and coffee and smoke. Lightly bitter and a bit acidic on the finish. I couldn’t have asked for a better beer to sip on this Christmas night.
