500ml bomber from Jim’s in Mundelein. Root beer colored pour with a tan floating-on-top head leaving a bit of lace. Aroma leads with roast, chocolate, some caramel and vanilla. Maybe some coconut. Taste is of raw roasted coffee, bakers chocolate, some ashy-ness and some light fruits. Medium to full bodied with alcohol. Finishes long and roasty bitter. Very enjoyable. 15.3

Wow. Aromas and tastes of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, some sweetness and oak. The slight bitter finish is a great way to end it. Very dark and fluid with a thin tan head. A favorite.

Black color with tan head. Lots of chocolate and round coffee. Dark fruits, slightly spicy, very rich, very complex. Amazing complexity and silky mouthfeel. Slight booze burn. Incredible how Mikkeller can brew a beer that balanced.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Has a completely black pour, with a stable, dense light brown head, revealing small bubbles at the edge of the glass.
The aromas in this come extremely well together, ranging between soft, berry infused milk-chocolate and earthy, slightly charred coffee beans. Its sweeter undertones of caramel and pine needles get gently wrapped up by the toasted, fresh crushed coffee beans. On top of that settle sour wild berries, creating a rich nose, full of different aromas, blending well together.
Almost no carbonation left (1.5 years old at the date of drinking), resulting in a very soft mouthfeel with an almost full body.
Tastes of earthy, toasty malts, together with chocolate-caramel cookie and a good portion of smooth whipped cream. The palate then gets confronted with a pleasant mix of matured, grassy hops and bitter, slightly berry accentuated coffee beans, adding even more earth to the taste. From this, a sweeter maltiness, as well as a gentle sourness, result from the so far established taste impression, smoothed by cream. Finishes with even more earthy, slighty bitter coffee and a slightly slick, long staying bitterness.
The brews earthyness is incredibly well pronounced, directly followed by bitter, berry enhanced coffee, with lots of cream to balance the subtle sourness. All flavors come together incredibly well, highlighting the roasted, bitter earth defined coffee.

Bottle. Dark brown pour that gives very little head. Great aroma of smoke, roasted coffee, bacon, and light chocolate. Tastes like sweet smoked meat mostly. Good amount of roasty coffee too in the finish. Completely flat carbonation which doesn’t work well. Makes this seem ultra thin. Still decent overall but not worth the price.

Fruity scent. The taste is strong coffee, strong soy and dark malt. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Good? Yes, but it could probably worth a lot better. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
