3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2007 Bottle (mini caffeine beer tasting).
Head is initially large, frothy, brown, mostly lasting.
Body is opaque black (flashlight tested).
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate, coffee), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin), with a note of chalk.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, creamy texture, soft/lively carbonation.
Second try and still not that enjoyable; overly hoppy nose (seems more American than European) and the malt-and-coffee character is surprisingly not very compelling. Quite acidic. Awesome appearance and a very good mouthfeel, but that’s about it.

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.
