Alive! (Mikkeller, Copenhagen, DK)

I had this one in the fridge for a while--forgot it in the back.  Hard to pass up a wild ale at the Four Firkins , especially from the funky brewer Mikkeller.

Fluffy off white head rolls up to the top of the glass, and tries to run away with each pour.  Hazy burnt orange beer that seems to clarify as I drank.  Toffee, baker's chocolate, strong spiciness and light funk with increasing earthiness as it warms.  Bone dry and thins significantly as it warms.  I'd drink this one fairly fast if I had another.  Very good beer for the night, though I'm heading for some water to work on the cottonmouth.
