Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, - NOV 11, 2012
0,25l bottle as gift from Denmark. Opaque, black color with medium, creamy, dark brown head, which disappears quickly. Sweet, alcoholly odor followed by roasty, smoked malt flavours. The aroma is incredibly smoky and roasty. At the beginning itís sweet and caramelly, but after the firs impressions itís dry and tastes like a roast pork. Itís definitelly made with a lot of smoked malt, which causes this meet flavour. It must had a lot of chocolate malt too which makes the color so black, but it doesnít make the beer sour and bitter. Alcohol and honey flavours also appears. Dry, intensive and complex taste, nothing can dominate, but all the three basic flavours (sweet, sour, bitter) appears. Full bodied with oily texture and light carbonation. Roast pork finish. Itís an interesting beer. Surprisingly complex, incredibly oily and full bodied. This beer is dominated by the malty flavours, and from this view itís the opposite of the Mikkeller Black Hole, which is a "hoppy imperial stout". Itís a concentrated beer, 25cl is totally enough. The alcohol content isnít too high, and it canít be felt as dominant in the aroma. The texture, the body, and the malty flavours make this beer this rich and concentrated.

Man that was good. Roasted malts, hints of chocolate, toffee. Thick and viscous. A good sipper that gets better as it warms. Enough alcohol to add a punch at the end.

Batavi (124) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2015 Fles gekocht bij biernavigatie.nl, uitgeschonken in Struise bierglas. Schenkt gitzwart uit, als motorolie met lichtbruine schuimkraag, die vrij snel weer inzakt. Krachtige aromaís van geroosterde mout, zwarte koffie, teer, gebrand hout, en toffee. Het smaakpallet volgt de aromaís, zeer krachtige imperial stout. Niet subtiel zoet als bijvoorbeeld de Cuvee Delphine van Struise, maar straf en met duidelijk waarneembare alcohol warmte en bitterheid, zeer interessant bier. Er zitten tonen in van espresso koffie, pure cacao, drop, tabak, teer, later komt er een licht zoetje door van toffee en karamel, maar de gebrande bitterheid overheerst. De afdronk is lang, met een bitter mondgevoel, vooral achter op de tong, en een licht peperige, ziltige salmiak finish met verwarmende whisky achtige alcohol smaak. De alcohol van 12,12% is niet verborgen, maar dat past perfect bij deze Mikkeller George. Een heerlijke Imperial stout, haast een maaltijd op zich, met veel complexiteit en een mooie balans. Niet subtiel door de bitterheid en aanwezige alcohol, deze RIS van Mikkeller is een krachtig bier voor de liefhebber. Ik ben benieuwd naar de verschillende barrel aged versies van deze Mikkeller George die er ook nog zijn.

larsga (6676) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2015
Medium brown head. Opaque black body. Resiny roasty coffee aroma with spicy earthy notes. Dry resiny coffee and roast taste with burnt mineraly notes. Full-bodied. Sharpish, slightly hot mouthfeel. Hides the alcohol pretty well. Dry roasty burnt chocolate aftertaste with coffee and sherry notes. Nice, drinkable, balanced. After cellaring for 1-2 years. (0.33l bottle, I have no idea where from.)

aleigator (436) - GERMANY - JUN 14, 2015
Pours a viscous, black color, with a very small, bubbly head, soon vanishing to sheets of lacing. Its aromas are a mix of fudge, milk-chocolate and toffee, among earthy malts. Offers up a hot, slightly alcoholic aspect, making the chocolate a tad sweeter. Toasted, bready malts establish a fitting foundation, balancing the chocolate gently. Tastes very smooth, the beer has almost no carbonation, leading to a silky mouthfeel, showcasing a medium bodied beer. Tastes of bakers-chocolate, sweetened cocoa powder, coconut shell and chocolate fudge cream. Has a distinct coffee earthiness to it, which then gets amped up by a discreet cinnamon coating, providing an enjoyable bitterness. Finishes outstandingly smooth with earth, bakers-chocolate and a late, but long lasting, coffee tartness. Features a well compounded beer, with a fantastic, dough mouthfeel to it, revealing a convincing flavor diversity, mainly due to the rich coffee and hot chocolate appearance.
