“Brassy golden, visible carbonation and a decent white cap that fades fast. Nose is brassy grapefruit and grassy sweetness. Unturned bitterness throughout, crisp and decadent without being genericly limey. Shakes of melon and the fleshiness of papaya and guava. Rich, inviting carbonation and a twisted sherbert buzz on the mouthfeel. Incredible dusting of earnest hop sweetness throughout, solid dry hopping ploofs towards the finish. Sweaty grapefruit linger with more of this intriguing lean sweetness.” -- by McNeillR

“It had the faintest aroma of a good, strong, black coffee and hops. It poured black as ink and had a mild, tan head which almost seemed to glow against the darkness of the stout. Its taste was incredibly smooth with an espresso taste. There were other subtle flavors underneath, but I couldn’t identify them. It finished with a pleasurable hoppy bitterness. This is saying a lot from me as I am not generally a fan of hops. Surprisingly it had light body with a creamy texture. This was truly an excellent stout.” -- by bolthead101

“Doskonały aromat - głęboka, melczna czekolada, płatki owsiane, jest wyraźna wanilia. Aromat zdecydowanie słodki i intensywny, ale nie ostry, po nalaniu więcej kawy z mlekiem. . Barwa czarna, piana średnioobfita, ładna, drobnopęcherzykowa, beżowa. W smaku głównie kawa, likierowo, także czekolada, owsianki już mniej, alkohol wyczuwalny, szczypie w język i w przełyk, ale jak na 13% to akceptowalne. Goryczka wysoka, ściągająca, lekko alkoholowa. W smaku pełne, nie jest takie gładkie, jak można by się po aromacie spodziewać. Zdecydowanie warte leżakowania. Aromat fenomenalny, w smaku nie tak dobrze, ale nadal, dobrze :).” -- by Procent

“16oz can. Pours a hazy golden color with average-sized foamy off-white head. Very fragrant hoppy aroma, lots of citrus and pine in the nose. Flavor is very citrusy and hoppy, powerful up front and mellowing in the finish. Medium bodied with lingering mellowly bitter finish. Outstanding.” -- by smaynard6000

“Thanks for sharing Podjebier! 355 ml. bottle sampled during Carnivale Brettanomyces #4. I am not sure what happened here, I didn’t care for Bomb! But that is amazing, great aging or did I try a weak bottle of Bomb? Pours black with no head. Nose hugely intense bourbon, big vanilla, sugar, insanely big bourbon, chocolate syrup, sweet chocolate, super creamy,… Taste is an intense orgy of bourbon & vanilla bourbon, sweet oak, caramel, chocolate syrup, sweet chocolate, caramel, just the right amount of chili in the back. Super creamy, awesome.” -- by 77ships

“Bottle, 330 ml. Pours pitch black and completely opaque. Small amount of dark tan head forms at first but doesn’t stick around. Strong notes of chocolate cake on the nose, alongside other chocolate-based notes such as chocolate milkshake or hot chocolate powder, while the coffee note is subtle, compared to the brunch weasel. Fudge/caramel elements emerge later, and then come some less sweet notes such as mature cheddar, roast beef/roast beef crisps, gravy granules, some hints of spice, earth, and finally a burnt, woodsmoke-esque edge to the whole thing. Some of these take a while to emerge so would recommend letting this one warm up a bit. Booze is remarkably well hidden given the ABV, only occasionally cutting through the rest of the aroma. Huge, extremely bitter hit of roasted malt in the initial tasting, which mellows out a bit for the rest of the during while maintaining a lingering presence. Sticky toffee pudding and molasses come through around the mid point, balancing out the bitterness of the roasted malt nicely. The roast beef hints from the aroma make their much appreciated return. These notes stick around for the finish which is long and sticky and leaves a lingering bitterness. Alcohol barely even registers until the psychoactive effects start to kick in, and there’s no burn whatsoever. Can’t really taste any of the advertised vanilla at the moment but that hardly matters when everything else is this good. Body is full, and the texture is thick, slick and goes down a treat. There’s even a slight hint of carbonation, which is interesting but doesn’t really affect the overall package. Pretty much everything an imperial stout should be, and moreso. Mikkeller are wizards.” -- by Cybion
