Chockladig i aromen, hel del sötma, ABVn skiner igen lite i aromen. Smaken är kraftig. Alkoholen är tydlig i smaken. Eftersmaken av besk alkohol.

Kūts :D Elīna: "Zirņi ar speķi" Melns un maza puta, kas aatri zuud. Salds, dzerot paliek labāks. Izskalojot- kafija ar labu konjaku, nedaudz pēc portvīna.

About 2 years of age on this one. Crazy unique beer. Never had anything quite like this...extreme. Not as thick a pour as I would have expected...black but not terribly viscous. Slick mouthfeel though and very lingering. Kept showing through a 10% stout home-brew tasted afterwards. Anyway, nose is massive soy and anise, burnt roast. Soy, massive licorice (f-ing Danes!), did I say soy?, ash, saline. Compelling, demanding beer. Glad I tried it. Glad I split it 3 ways. Can’t even say if I liked it or not, but it’s a 4.

Pours deep black, oily, with great, big, long beige head. Nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of plums, chocolate, chocolate-like liqueur, roasted malts, alcohol, but in a good way. Full body, low carbonation. Taste is aggresive. At first it is very sweet in your mouth, than it explodes in a great variety of tastes. Big alcohol, big bitterness, big sweetness. Long lasting bitter taste in your throat. Big, complex, great beer, for long sipping.

Igazi fekete szine van, habja kremes, drapp szinu, kitarto. Illata es ize is igen intenziv, kaves, kakaos, fas, suru, likoros, meggyes, komlos. Suru, olajos, nehez, apro buborrkokksl teli. Utoize keseru, rendkivul szaraz. Tuti!

Big dark roasted malt. Melted chocolate, roasted barley, coffee, , molasses, veery little discernible hops above all the dark and delicious flavours in this nose. Black as cal with a big thick tan head that laces wonderfully. Carbonation not visible but obviously there. Great big malty roast with caramel, toffee,, molasses, chocolate cake, and Christmas cake flavours. Mikkel is definitely a brewer among brewers. . The yeast has very dry characteristics similar to a Guinness yeast. Has hops to balance but are barely noticible in the deluge of malt, that hits you like a whammy.. This is a big monster of a beer in my favourite, overbearing style. It hits you like a brick from the start, then warms and really packs a whallop. This is a mikkeller beer in the way I love them to be.. Way over the top and hits you like a 2x4 in the chops with a wall of flavour

Fatmajk (8) - - FEB 20, 2014 does not count
Tap @ Mikkeller&Friends. Medium head with strictly non-transparent dark black color. Kinda sweet at first but turns into a intense dark roasted cocoa taste with lots of bitterness which remains quite a while! This is a huge roasted bomb.

Tap sample courtesy of PotjeBier, thanks! 2012 version, so approximately 2 years old. Black colour, thin beige head. Aroma of cabbage, hard roasted malts, spirit, bitter chocolate, booze, tar. Flavour is hard roasted/burnt malts, tar, spirit, fusels, chocolate, firm bitter roasted and boozy finish. Full-bodied. Not as good as I hoped, Potje mentioned he has had better versions of this beer, so will try to rate this soon again.

Keg at Beer Temple, 6th February 2014. Big nose, loads of bitterness, the taste is dark bitter cocoa, sharp hops, not overly sweet, really bitter dark chocolate, very nice
