3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells like a rich and high alcohol stout. Little whiskey smell. Pitch black with brown head that quickly disappear. Very sweet, some bitterness, some alcohol, but unfortunatly no whiskey taste. Looks very thick, but then it is very thin. All over very good, and "light" compared to style and alcohol conteny

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from 0.375 l bottle. Pitch black with a light brown head. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and hazelnut. Sweetish-malty, moderately roasty taste of dark chocolate, coffee, hazelnut and some vanilla, followed by a short, moderately roasty-bitter, slightly warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Very nice!

backlog at Mikkeller Viktoriagade in feb 15. Huge aroma if peated whisky, along with molasses, dark chocolate and some booze. Complex palate, loads of heat with slight hint of smoke, sausage, vanilla, peat, malts. Somewhat creamy compared to the original which is always a classic. Very nice.

Bottle. Aroma of peanuts, smoky dark chocolate, wet wood, prune, vanilla extract. Extremely sweet and boozy. Flavor is equally intense, beginning sugary and layered with molasses, brown sugar and reduced prunes and plums. Intense oak character and roast bitterness settle in on the sides of the tongue.
