Bottle from Market of Choice, Eugene. Pours very dark. Aroma is sweet and boozy, lots of roastiness, chocolate. Mouthfeel is surprisingly lively, finish is slightly grassy, Centennial hops are saying hello. Very, very nice overall. Like a IPA had a baby with a barrel-aged stout. Yum!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle from El Irlandés. Pours an attractive dark brown, almost black color with a big tan head that shows good retention. Aroma is strongly malty, roasted with mocha, cocoa, medium roasted coffee grains and toasted rye bread. Some lactose hints too. Flavor is strong on coffee grains, dense and smooth, very oaty. In the back, complimenting the roastiness there are nice grassy hops increasing the complexity of this wonderful stout. A Breakfast Stout for sure, closer to Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast than what you would think. Less hoppy though with the hops more camouflaged in the palette of flavors. Smooth big body with more carbonation than your typical strong Stout. Dry in the finish with a low dose of astringency. Another excellent danish beer. Brilliant! And can’t wait to try the Hr. Frederiksen.
