Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 2, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2007 courtesy of Papsoe; an oatmeal stout labelled "draft version" - black coloured under a creamy beige head; robust broasted mocha aroma met by decent nutty and hoppy notes; creamy mouthfeel and a solid nalt body; fairly bitter and dry finish along with more coffeish and hoppy notes - very nice beer with an impressive balance

500 ml bottle. Black with copper colours at the edges. Small light brown head. Roasted coffee aromas. Medium-bodied. Bitter dark chocolate and espresso flavours. Dry mouthfeel with a strong drying hop bitterness. Finishes dry and bitter.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JUL 7, 2006
(on tap) Aroma of cikorie"coffee" and fresh diary products. Yes, they managed to put in the cream along with all coffeenotes. Odd sour mouth, maybe from all the burnt malts? A super opped version for sure.

yngwie (13107) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 26, 2006
Bottled. Pours jet black, with a small tan head. I had it too cold, unfortunately, but on the second pour the head got bigger and creamy. It looks almost oily in the glass. Lots of chocolate and coffee in the nose, with some hops and quite a deal of roasted notes. Lots of flavor, with the same elements as in the aroma. A bit too much Co2, but except for that, it feels good in the mouth. Long, dry, roasted and lightly astringent finish. Another great brew from Mikkeller. (060519)

rlgk (10047) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2006
Draught. Black with a brown head. Aroma from chocolate, cocoa, malty and with some mint. Flavor brings cream, milk, chocolate, coffee, cocoa, quite bitter after a while. Nice creamy body. Bitter finish.

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2006
Thin dark head. Pitch black body. Soft burnt sooty aroma with coffee notes. Taste is oily burnt coffee, somewhat dryish. Good, but maybe slightly one-dimensional. (0.5l bottle.)

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2006
Growlered. Nose is rich, roasted, semi-sharp coffee, not too strong with the coffee influence though, but still decent. More black smoked malts and charred grains in the flavor. Creamy up front, full of rich creamy coffee. Not as complex as other coffee stouts, not as robust as others, but still some very drinkable stuff.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JUN 12, 2006
Intens warm black coloured beer with a creamy Beige-brown head. The aroma is well in balance. It has very complex roasted accents that reminds me to the coffee aroma’s that came free from the coffee roaster at the Santos Palace. In my childhood, I helped from time to time with roasting coffee beans at the Santos (It was next to our door). Along with the coffee aroma’s, there are loads of other stuff going on. Treackle, Cadico sirup, hints of tar and soft Dutch drop. In the second fase, some fruity touches are comming forward. Hints of Confit the cerrises, dry figgs and burned fruits on top of a fruitpie that has been to long in a to hot oven. The taste is overwhelming and elegant at the same time. It has a smooth and sliky mouthfeel and the balance is almost perfect. It has deep bitterich hints of burned malts, coffee, burned edges of sweet bread and tar. It has a fine slight sweetness and a exciting refresching hoppyness. In the middel pallet you can notice touches of the best of bitter chocolate (Belgian of course) along with touches of vanilla, butter caramels and Ricola = Swiss herb Bonbons. For me, it needs a little more carbonation, but overall, this is a great stout. I hope to retaste this beer in the near future, because i diddend had this one in the best condition.

Black color. As an ice coffee should be. Soft. Malt, coffee, roasted malt, high bitterness… just in one word: good!

Schioth (41) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2006
Draught at Olbutikken. Extremely nice stout, not that different from the original version. Black colour w. light-brown head, beatiful foam. Flavor is superb, especially the combination of hops and coffee-flavour is right up my alley. Superb and long-lasting finish. A definite favorite...
