The strongest beer in Scandinavia. This imperial stout is the craziest, wildest, strongest beer from Mikkeller to this date. Not for sissies.......! Sample it fresh or store it for many many years to come!
Ingredients : Water, malt, roasted barley, dark cassonade, ale yeast and champagne yeast.

I like this style: so bias declared. But this is boozy. Nose is promising, look is great, taste is boozy and palate a little acidic. As a sipper instead of a brandy, or your after dinner preference, it will work. Shame it’s not a slight more rounded and balanced. But hey thank goodness we don’t all like the same.n

18.1% bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. A jet black beer pours with a quickly disappearing brown tan head. It has very rich whisky, vanilla, oak and chocolate flavours followed by very strong, warming liquorice more oak and whisky on the finish.

Always love the boozy beers. Color is dark black. Vanilla and coffee are the stars of the show. Heavy feeling in the mouth but an excellent aftertaste.

Weezel (194) - Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Huge boozy aromas of licorice, port, and sweet coffee. Pitch black. More alcohol in the taste with a chewy texture. Flavors of vanilla, coffee and sweet grapes. Good but needs more depth.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2014 7 5 9 5 15 On tap @ Kulminator, Antwerp. Oil black, beige head. Roasted coffee and chocolate dominate the nose and taste, along with sweet red wine, softening malts and a strong boozy burn. Quite bitter (roasted/cacao-bitter, not primarily hoppy), lingering aftertaste. Very thick and oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation, huge body.

Dark as the night and with a thick and sticky brown head. Aroma of dried fruits, coffee, alcohol and chocolate. Very nice and complex taste with lot’s of coffee, dark chocolate, raisins and some pleasant bitterness in the end. This is a massive beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught, 18%, 2012 edition @ Mikkeller, Viktoriagade. Pours cloudy nearly black with small tan head. Clear aroma of malt, fruit and coffee, with touches of liquorice. Bitter, roasty and vinous flavour, with heavy notes of coffee and pronounced touches of malt and alcohol. Bitter and roasty aftertaste. Good but quite heady and boozy.

Bottle from Palme, thanks for this gem. My #1000. Pours black color, small brown head. Aroma is coffee, cocoa, vanilla, plums, red fruits, roasted malt, alcohol recognizable. Taste is extra sweet, lightly bitter, vanilla, caramel, cocoa, coffee, red fruits, roasted malt. Extra long, very sweet, coffee finish. This is a desert, extra nice beer.

Bottle from Perfect Pour. Puts a deep dark black with tan head. Aroma of coffee, toasted malts, and booze. Taste is mostly burnt malts, the blackest coffee, and alcohol.

Bottle shared by jheath99.. Pours black with frothy tan head. Aroma of booze. Flavors of coffee and booze. Bitter, boozy finish. It was almost too much of a boozy flavor for me. Decent beer, but I prefer something more complex.
