4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 75cl. It pours a more or less jet black body and a small, dense dark beige head. The aroma is on the coffee side, not much else shines through. Also the flavor is on the coffee side, but there’s also some dark chocolate. A touch of spices too, although I don’t think there’s any added. Full body, some warming notes. Really lasting finish. A wonderful beer well worth revisiting. 130202

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to my secret Santa. Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has roasted malts with dark coffee notes and a decent amount of peppers. Flavor has a much more creamy chocolate start that grows in bitterness from the coffee and has just a hint of pepper in the finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep black color with a tan head that bubbles and then settles to just a ring. Sweet chocolatey aroma and taste (very characteristic to Mikkeler stouts) followed by sweet espresso flavors and some light spice/hop character.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black with a small, porous dark brown head.
Aroma: roasted, creamy, a touch of chili.
Taste: roasted, coffee, cocoa, dried fruits, chili, creamy, light salmiak. This is like a good warm chocolate with chili and whipped cream (well, not warm but you get the idea). The finish is hot from the chili.
Very nice, balanced but with a little bite in the finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a robust looking viscous black with almost zero head. Aromas of coffee, heavy roast, some slight spice. Taste confirms the smell - roasted coffee, semisweet chocolate, and just a touch of pepper on the finish. Really damn good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bitter Kopi coffee makes the experience enjoyable, bringing depth to the flavor profile. Rest of the drink is entirely forgettable. Kopi coffee is the only part of this beer that's worthwhile.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle pours a deep black color with a very small light brown head that leaves only brief lacing on the glass. Aroma is light chocolate and coffee with some roasted notes. Taste is chocolate malty sweetness with coffee and roasted grain and coffee bitterness in the finish. There is also a slight warming from the alcohol which is noticeable. Medium to heavy bodied with light carbonation. A pretty good brew and recommended to try at least once.
