UPDATED: AUG 24, 2008 Nearly black pour with a quite sizeable brown head. Mostly coffee, some roast malt aromas. Really sticks to the glass, but somewhat medium bodied. Lots of coffee up front and throughout, some mocha or bakers chocolate, ends with a little bitterness and lingers into creaminess. Definetely near the top, but not above the Founders Breakfast stouts. Maybe more drinkable however with the slightly lower abv.

Pours a pitch black hue with a huge layer of brown watery foam that dissipates to a ring with slippy lacing. Nose is full of coffee grounds and espresso, dark chocolate, cream, light grassy tones, grains. Taste is fairly mild coffee (not in your face) with a few milk and sugars added in, light hops and grain midway, finishes bittersweet. Creamy smooth texture with light carbonation. An easy-drinking stout with light coffee flavors, not as extreme as Founder’s or similar coffee stouts.

Uhhmmm...WOW! After waiting for a long time I was finally able to try this. Bottle at The Raleigh Times. I had been to the bar before and saw it on the menu, but skipped on it, hoping to try it next time. Well, when "next time" came around, it wasn’t on the menu. Thankfully, someone checked in the cellar and they had an extra bottle tucked away! This baby poured thick, deep, black, and ready to drink. The big open mouth glasses really helped that chocolatey oatmeal aroma drift skywards and the head was almost as black as the body. Upon the first sip, I knew this was going to be worth the wait. Super smooth mouthfeel, rounded flavours of coffee (not freeze-dried stuff, mind you; but freshly ground gourmet beans). Some hints of sweetness. Finish was amazing. Coffee, coffee, and more coffee....lasting way into the night and ruining the palate for any other beers that might have been consumed. Could have been a *slight* bit more full-bodied, but the flavour more than makes up for it. Who’s running the show over at Mikkeller? Whoever it is, I congratulate you on another beer well done! I have yet to be let down by this brewer and at this point in time anything they put out is basically a blind buy for me. Recommended!

50cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Batch 357. It poured a pitch black colour with an enormous creamy tanned head that settled down slowly in the glass. The aroma smells of coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malts. The flavour is bitter and tastes of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and a hint of alcohol. It has a long, lingering aftertaste.

very nice brew, interesting combo of oatmeal and coffee. Can smell the sweetness of oatmeal in the aroma. Less sweet than oatmeal stouts but very nice flavour of coffee and some bitter chocolate as well. Good mouthfeel. Very nice brew

Pours a creamy black with a lasting tan head. Smells of coffee and roasted malt. Mostly tastes of dark, bitter chocolate, but also coffee and hops. Smooth mouth feel. Highly drinkable and enjoyable, but Peche Mortel is still my favorite stout brewed with coffee.

Decided to be very literal about it and have this as my breakfast with some italian chocolate cake. That was a match made in heaven. There is so much in here to admire, the union of chocolate and coffee, the wonderfully smooth body, the aftertaste of gourmet coffee... And on top of all that this goes down dangerously easy. And there are hops! Oh sweet lord I would get fat on this if I had it available here, in case of an emergency this would be my manly version of chugging down a pint of hagen daaz....

Bottle from bu11zye, thanks! Pours a rich, dark brown colour with a frothy milk chocolate head. Nice aroma of bitter chocolate and coffee, plus bit of barley wine "fruit". Strong flavour of bitter coffee, roasted malt and some hops. The oatmeal gives it a great mouthfeel. Really phenomenal stout.

Dark brown head. Pours pitch black. Thus, coffee and chocolate comes to mind before tasting, and both are thoroughly confirmed. Bitter, full and sweet.

Bottle brewed at Nøgne Ø. Black pour with a vigorous dark tan head. Aromas of dark roasted malt, coffee and plummy fruit. Near medium body with heavy, creamy carbonation. Strong bitter coffee, smooth malt, burnt toast. Finish is coffee and burnt bitter, but it’s very nicely done. Everything works quite well together.
