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.

Poured from a 12.7oz corked and caged bottle and served in a snifter. This stout poured an opaque black with a one-finger thick head of creamy, dark tan foam that would not fade. A solid sheet of lace coated the entire glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of burnt malts, coffee, licorice, and a healthy dose of sweet, perfumey alcohol. The flavor consisted of charred malts, burnt sugar, black licorice, cold coffee, bittersweet chocolate, caramel, and a huge, sweet alcoholic finish. Lots of nice flavors, but it was hard to get past the alcohol. The mouthfeel was heavy and full-bodied with minimal carbonation. A fun beer to try, but I think this would be really good if the alcohol was cut back to about 12%.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2013 Bottled. Pours opaque black with a thick, creamy tan, head that leaves some good lacing. Nose of burned malt and caramel. Sweet flavour with roasted malt, liqourice, dark fruits and coffee. Oily texture. Alcoholic finish with some bitterness too. Very full bodied. 黑黑黑黑

pilsnerrogge (2488) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2008
Pours absolutely pitch black with a firm head. Sweet liquorice and soy aroma; is this Samuel Adams Triple Bock?? Thick and oily mouth feel. Flavour is sweet with notes of coffee, liquorice and dark, bitter chocolate. But most of all the flavour is bitter; really, really bitter! An extreme beer designed for beer masochists like us.

Vas19 (313) - Maryland, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Pours black (surprise!) with a thin brown head. Massive nose, filled with chocolate, brandy, and a little dark fruit. Big time flavor as well, extremely complex. There is some more fruit and brandy, with a load of roast coffee on the finish. Excellent beer, a little harsh right now but with a drink by date of 12/17 this could be incredible in a few years.

DocHop (278) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 11, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2008 Pours a dark chocolate syrup with a small brown head. Heavy aroma of dark chocolate, espresso, and earthy malts. Heavy coffee in the flavor. Not very roasty but lots of thick sweetness. Like a coffee molasses. Aftertaste is a lingering dryness with some hop/alcohol flavor. Extremely warming, and not overly heavy if you split a bottle.

JorisPPattyn (7885) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2008
Thick greige head over for all purposes black beer indeed - a purple shine upon pouring, maybe? Deep alcoholic, brandy or brandycake, chocolate, dark fruit as plums, sauced tobacco. Complex, but rather sharp roasted taste, black breadcrust, coffee. Alcohol is amazingly hidden - relatively speaking at least. Nice sourish lining, nearly fruity. Bitter dark grapes flowing. Extremely viscous, oily, nearly solid texture and body. Another indeed extreme beer from MIkkeller/De Proef. Certainly out of the ordinary, and well worth trying despite its not inconsiderable price.

pivnizub (8793) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2008
Bottle (@ RBESG 2008): Pours pitch-black with a stable, brownish head; liquorice, dark malt, sherry, dried fruit and leather in the nose; full sweet-bitter flavour, full bodied; lingering, warming, first sweet, later bitter finish with traces of leather and coffee. Very good, but very sweet, indeed......

Bottle thanks to cgarvieuk at the pre-plzen knees up. Alround rating: Wow, honey, floural nose, a black mead for sure, very sweet indeed, burnt finish ruins it but would be an excellent non honey mead.
