This is a blend of Amager Bryghus’ Hr. Frederiksen and Mikkeller’s Beer Geek Brunch Weasel, called "Væsal Brunch Weasel" at ChurchKey. The keg in particular was 30% nitrogenated, as well. 4 oz. served into a tasting snifter. From notes. A: Pours a damned near pitch black color. The head is a gorgeous one finger tan shade with fantastic texturing, fantastic duration, and fantastic lacing. I can only imagine what a full serving would look like - even in this dinky serving, it’s one of the prettiest imperial stouts I’ve ever witnessed. S: There actually isn’t too much on the nose. I note roasted barley, subtle coffee, and cocoa powder in particular. This kind of aroma doesn’t seem to justify an 8 score, but the way it meshes together just boggles the mind. It’s like some warped, insane version of a dry stout brewed by angry Vikings ready to plunder America. T: It opens with some light cocoa powder (as opposed to sweet, fudgy chocolate), transitioning into a coffee midtaste and a soft roasted finish. Where this succeeds isn’t the complexity - it’s in the top-caliber balance between the handful of flavors featured here. As a pure coffee stout, I wouldn’t put in with, say, FBS: this is a different beast entirely, where the coffee quality is a subtle note packed into a big-ass dry stout. M: This one is beautifully dry on the back end. Think Guinness sans any watery notes, and about 2.5 times stronger without really telling the palate that. This and, incidentally enough, the taster of Black Albert I had earlier in the day, are just about the only imperial stouts I could ever call ’refreshing’. O: Holy fuck. This is something I could drink all damn day for the rest of my life. What it lacks slightly in complexity it MORE than makes up for in ease of drinkability. Seriously, this is an amazing blend...if only it weren’t so damn pricey. If only...

Poured into a teku showing pitch black and sparse dark black foam around the edges. The nose shows a mix of black sugar, light caramel, light bourbon, and hints of adzuki bean. The palate is very light bodied and evenly carbonated. First flavors on the palate show a smokiness from the roasted malts, that deepens as it warms on the palate. More flavors of light bourbon and caramel appear. The finish shows practically no bitterness anywhere from anything. The same light bourbon flavors linger on the end. This is meant to be enjoyed a moderate place. Quite nice!

mansquito (4209) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 31, 2015
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: pours black with a tan head. Aroma is a ton of coffee with dark bitter and fruity chocolate and almoat no booze. Taste is moderately bitter. Low sweetness. Highly burned. No soy sauce. Not too heavy body. Quite good. But, in fairness, I seldom crave this beer or the style of heavily burnt stouts.

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.
