3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle to snifter. Looks good; a fairly opaque dark brownish black with light beige lacing. Smells of dark malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and roast. Tastes like it smells with a solid, albeit slightly thin mouthfeel. Good, not great.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle from Portale Birra, served in a nonic half pint glass. Pitch black, absolutely no light passing through, with a little light beige head. Sweet and rich aroma with lots of bitter dark chocolate and espresso coffee notes, a hint of burnt caramel, brown sugar and Mars candybar. Perfectly smooth and velvety in the mouth, balanced and harmonious. Not as coffee forward as expected but there is plenty of roasted/toasted components, and just a light hoppy/herbal bitterness. Nice milky and sugary sweetness as well. Soft carbonation, medium to full body and creamy texture. On top of that, It drinks just like a 6% beer. Fantastic RIS!

Opaque black in color with minimal chocolate colored head that settled into wisps and a thin collar. Aroma is deeply roasted malt, vanilla and earthy wood. Taste is dark chocolate, deep malt, vanilla, with coffee running throughout all of that. Silty mouthfeel, low carbonation and rich body.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pitch black with a brown lace. Super nice aromas of freshly ground coffee and brownies. Full body, bourbon like palate, just a bit thin, silky, lots of alcohol in here, coffee, mocha, finishing on a hot chocolate liquor and whisky finale. Very nice presence of the coffee in this stout, it brings a very nice fruity character to it. Wonder stuff.

This one poured a dark dark brown with a tan head. Aroma was of coffee, dark roast, and smoke. Flavor was similar, expeditions esque, very dry, ashy dark roasted and burnt coffee. Abrasive and im pressive

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thick black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of big coffee, vanilla, earth, some roast, touch of chocolate in there with a hint of caramel. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, hints of cocoa, roast into big coffee, bitter and astringent, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Pretty nice, a bit harsh.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Split cost and contents with Kraddel. Procured @ De Hopduvel. 500 ml. Black, little mocha bubbles. Smell is nicely sweet and rich, brown sugar, mocha, chocolate milk, what I think is the Koppi coffee, really good, unique sweetness, caramel, chocolate chip cookies, great stuff. Taste is thick cacao, touch bitter upfront, very sweet coffee, really lingers in the aftertaste, same unique coffee, great stuff, chocolate, chocolate milk, chocolate, caramel, brown sugar & chocolate milk sweet. Perfect carb. & really eassy to drink. I have come to expect all of these Mikkeller Koppi beers to be stellar and this is no exception.
