4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Happy birthday to me! Pours pitch black with the darkest head I’ve ever seen – absolutely amazing. Aroma is a great blend of ‘piney’ hops and roasted malts with coffee notes. The best attempt of this in a dark beer that I’ve tried. Flavour is somewhat sourish at first, but soothens down as it warms. Roasted and hoppy notes. Ends on a lingering bitter licorice finish with a dryish touch – great! Fullbodied and with a smooth palate. The best stout I’ve tried. Go Mikkeller! 23-10-06.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2007 (Bottle) Pours dark, dark brown. Roasted coffee beans, mocha and a light smokeyness in aroma with some citrusy hops up front, pine and rasin is secondary . Cold black coffee, citrus and pine flavour with some smoke and hints of liquorice. Extremely roasted and very dry. A bit salty and some cocoa. Big body. Second try. Pours black. Very roasted and burned aroma with a lot of hoppy tones ,grapefruit citrus, pine and resin. Coffee also up front. Undertones of tar, pepper, dark chocolate and crisp bread. Burned coffee flavour with a very bitter and dry citrusy grapefruity finish. A lot of hops with piney, grapefruity and resiny tones. Thick mouthfeel and a pretty full body.

Pour is black with brownish highlights and a bubbled tan head...explosive beer...overly carbonated...smell is rich with fruit and cocoa...turns to foam in the mouth it is so effervescent...seemingly more fruity than roasty...?...good...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle from christiansa. black body with a thick tan head that remains throughout in the form of a thin blanket over the beer. aroma is coffee, chocolate, and a touch of red grapes. taste is slightly acidic coffee and wet melting chocolate, some graham cracker notes and a nice roasty finish. a bit metallic with a weird fruitiness about midtaste, but that fades after a bit(don’t know if it was just my palate getting used to this, or what). something in this reminds me of a cigar. great complex lingering flavors that are a pleasure. a well balanced brew that works well.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2007 pre-GABF party ’06: Deep and dark brown. Rich chocolate and coffee throughout -- nice. Zingy hops seemed to balance well. Bitterness built in the finish. RERATE: Motor oil blackness; creamy, lasting, tan head. Milkshake-like texture. Rich chocolate and roasty coffee notes throughout. Bitterness (grass, pine) was balancing. Warm and soothing alcohol. Dark chocolate cocoa nibs in the aftertaste. Tasty beer.

Black colour, brown head. Dry coffee dominates, the chocolate tones add to a good aroma profile. Dry mouthfeel - good balance of hops and malts, and when warmed up - cocoa, tobacco, licorice and a touch of smokiness.
