Sampled with beerbiker and stepdad, thanks for a great evening! Black! Roasted malty aroma with some fruity notes, honney and port wine. Thick thick moutfull. Lots of fruity sweetness in the flavor aswell along with roasted and burned malt and coffee notes. Great coffee finish and overall just very very complex. My favorite in the 6-pack.

HUGE thanks to Ibrew2or3 for the share. Pours a rediculous black with a near black head. Nose is BOOZE!, coffee, vanilla, burnt roast malts, chocolate, liquorice and soy. Huge booze flavor, heavy roasted grain, bitter coffee, bitter hops, loadas of chocolate. Finishes a biting alcohol sharpness and sweet. Thick and chewy. F’n amazing!

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2008
On tap at the beer festival in Copenhagen 2008. This one is a dark and heavy bastard taht defently is worth sharing. Pours deep pitch black with a darkbrown head. The nose is fruity in a vinoes way combained with Mikkellers caracteristic hoppy sidenotes. It has a dry and full mouthfeel and a taste with chocolate, cofee and wood that witness of a perfect barrelaging. The chocolate is clear and the sweetness is wellbalanced with a good amount of bitterness. The finish is sweet like a deluxe cake-dessert...serve it with wipped cream. Good job Mikkeller #122

yngwie (13617) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2008
On tap at the European Beer Festival, Copenhagen. Black, with a small brown head. Chocolate, sugar, more chocolate, coffee and hops in the aroma. Really lovely and big. Very sweet flavor with alcohol, piney hops, roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Finishes in the same way and lasts for quite a long time. Full-bodied, almost sticky sweet and warming in the mouth. A really complex and big beer, maybe qualified for a 4.6 rating. Gorgeous. (080912)

Ratman197 (9874) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2008
25 cl bottle received in trade from Theis poured a translucent black with a lasting brown head. Aromas of oak, charcoal, vanilla, roasted malt, coffee, licorice and a hint of fruittiness. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth with a dry warming finish. Flavors of roasted malt, coffee, oak, vanilla, licorice and dark fruit with a smooth dry warming lingering roasty finish. This was a very impressive tasty Imperial Stout! I wish I had more.

Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2008
[EBF @ Copenhagen, September 2008] Average brown creamy head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Pitch black color. Aroma of oak, vanilla, berries, coffee, chocolate, roasted malt. Quite full bodied with an average carbonation and thick mild dry alcoholic texture. Heavy bitter and sweet flavor in balance. Lingering roasted malt and floral hoppy finish.
