3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Very dark brown - almost black, small and mostly diminishing dark brown head. Moderate to full, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish aroma, some caramel, roasted malt and light coffee, light dark fruits and faint vinous notes, faint alcohol. Body is medium to full, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, faint caramel and some roasted malt and light coffee, light alcohol. Finish is average to long, malty and lightly sweetish, some roasted malt and light coffee, light - some hoppyness and some alcohol. Really nice fruity/vinous aroma - flavor/finish lack the fruitiness. Aroma and flavor are not in balance. Way too much alcohol in the finish.

At a tasting, many thanks, no head, opaque black color, aroma of cocoa, roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate, flavor of intense bitter sweet chocolate, with some chocolate cake and chocolate liquor with a touch of earthiness and some coffee in the back, tounge coating oily palate. Really good, would be nice to linger on this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from wine and cheese place. Pours black with no head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Kind of piney on the nose. Lots and lots and lots of pine on the tongue. Has a certain what the fuck is this quality to it. Finish lingers a bit. Definitely the most Mikkeller stout I’ve ever had. Of course I’d never have another one.
