3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Kobenhavnske Oldage, May 2006. Pitch black, with very alluring powerful coffee presence in the aroma. The coffee continues into the flavour but it is very sour and I felt the sourness clashed with, rather than complemented, the otherwise rich and luscious nature of the beer. I found the normal version to be a better balanced beer that appealed more to my palate.

Like the normal Beer Geek Breakfast but more dry and bitter with more coffee and roasted malt. Very tasty!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[Another century celebrated with a Mikkeller beer - this time 7300] A black beer with a lazing brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of roasted coffee, while the flavor is sweet with strong notes of coffee, roasted, malt, and a lovely yeast note. The mouthfeel is very rounded.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black with a lasting light brown head. Extremely roast stout aroma and flavour like the original but with an exciting twist of tartness, not unlike biting in a fresh piece of oak wood. Since I also first tried De Dolle’s export stout, the "tart imperial stout" is my Revelation of the Year 2006.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught. Black with brown head. Wood, licorice, a little smoke and yeast in aroma - much more yeast than the regular version. Sweet flavour with licorice and yeast with a light bitterness. It seems lighter than the good stuff - like someone mixing your drugs with "fake" ingredients. Don’t mess with my addiction, dudes! I’ll toast ya over an open bonfire on Guy Fawkes (if we had that here). Still, I like this version, so I’ll let you off and pour gasoline over you first, you crazy experimenting (experiMENTAL) geeks!

Draught at Copenhagen Beerfestival 2006
Black color; brown head, thick. Strange: take the coffee notes, creamy (cappuccino), the malt, and add some light sourness. Good, but not exceptional. But the final, creamy cappuccino of Italian quality, is incredible!
