4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 Flaske, delt med Willy, batch 459 (brygget 07.10.09, best før 07.10.12.): en fantastisk aroma av mørkbrent kaffe og og moccabønner spredte seg i rommet da flasken ble åpnet. Smaken var en åpenbaring av fylde og balanse. Kanskje det beste jeg har smakt, og med den lengste ettersmak jeg har opplevd. Intens og kompleks smaksglede som passet perfekt til Sibelius fiolinkonsert spilt Henning Kraggerud, med Bournemouth SO og dirigert av Bjarte Engeset: intensitet og nærhet i perfekt harmoni og teknisk helt uanstrengt. Versjonen komponert og gjennomført på Lervig står ikke tilbake for originalen. Et mesterbrygg fra Mikkeller og Mike Murphy.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours a deep brownish black from the bottle with a foamy brown head that last some time. Lots of lacing. The aroma is of coffee, chocolate and dark fruits. It tastes exactly as it smells: coffee, chocolate, plum and raisins. It’s really boozy and nicely bitter. Oily mouth. This is both complex and straightforward, and a great coffee stout.

330ml bottle from Brewdog online store. Pours black with a foamy brown head leaving alittle lacing, and aroma of roast malt, oats, fruity hop, coffee. Taste is sweetish roasted malt, toffee, dark fruits, hoppy, chocolate & dark coffee, with some lingering earthy bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, full bodied, soft carbonation, warming bitter finish. Very drinkable indeed!

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Aroma: Roasty, hints of undifined sour flowery notes, hookah, liquorishy, some spices. Apperance: Pours crued oil black, small short brown head. Taste: Rich roasted notes, liquorish, smoke, hookah, bitter like chocolate, bitter like coffee. Palate: thick oily feel. Overall: I might be colored by the former ratings - but its one of the most interesting stout-tastings I had, a lot of new tastes - not a every day beer (maybe not even monthy) But if you like to try new - this is!

An offering from krompt and we were both very impressed. Intense coffee, roast and poop taste and aroma minus the poop. Who thought fecal matter could taste so good?

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Herbal, almost minty flavor fades into coffee, chocolate, and alcohol. For beer flavored with cat shit, this is incredibly good. Though had I known it was flavored with cat shit coffee, I probably wouldn’t have bought it. They probably ought not to advertise it that way.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Opened with a key in a hotel room. Pours dark black, with thin head. Sensational beer, so smooth, but so full of flavour.. Easiest drinking 10.9 abv beer I’ve ever had. Does mikkeller do anything but stunning beer?
