5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Bottle for rating #2300: Looks like your typical 30W motor oil.   Moderate to large fizzy light brown head, dies somewhat quickly, spotty lacing.   Rich nose, cocoa, coffee beans, campfire, charred wood, ash, subtle hop, and perhaps a little bit of maple syrup.   Semi-sweet combination of cocoa and coffee on the tongue.   Subtle hop bite, some malt like bitterness from the roasting. Very well balanced, extremely well balanced actually.   No one part seems to dominate.   Good meld of flavors.   Smooth, just plain smooth.   Not as thick or viscous as others, but what it lacks in viscosity it makes up for finish.   Certainly not a heavy Stout, and I am thankful for that.   Glad to see the Danes making some kick ass beer.   Lingering cocoa, roasted malts, ash, and coffee.   Very flavorful, easy to drink, and quite a pleasure.   A big thanks to Crosling for selling me one of the few bottles he had left in the secret stash.   If it were possible to add a bit of oak, this thing would be utterly phenominal.   As is, quite good, solid, and highly recommended.

Mogwai (227) - Askeby, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2008 Bottle. Pours a black colour with a nougat/nutty brown head. Nose is full of coffee, caramel, and dark bitter chocolate. Flavour is again coffee, chocolate, liquorice but also roastiness that almost leads into a smoked taste. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

22oz bottle - Opaque black color with small medium tan color head. Aroma is full of light roast, acidic coffee, light caramel, dark chocolate, hint of smoke. Flavor is malty, fairly roasty, touch of raisens, oak, brandy. Finish is fairly balanced, with the bitterness winning out just a bit. Overall very nice, although I was expecting a bit more given all the hype.

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2007
22 oz bottle. BB 12-2007. Deep black beer with a thick dark brown head. Aroma is loaded with coffee. Slightly vegetal character to the nose that isn’t entirely pleasant. There is a load of coffeeish character and a heavy oaty richness. There is also a very strong roastiness with a bit of heavy smokiness. The flavour is very roasty with a lot of heavy coffee flavour. As it warms the malts appear more complex with a bit of plum and chewy sweetness. Some dark malts and a bit of toast. It’s a tasty beer, but it’s not the greatest coffee beer I’ve had.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Bottle with Mes & tashi at Caspar’s Christmas Cracker 2007. Many thanks to Mes for suggesting I pick up a bottle of this at GBBF 07. It’s special stuff. Pours a very dark brown. Massive aroma of coffee and dark, dark chocolate. Equally powerful flavour of chocolate, smoke and roasted malt. Smooth in the extreme, it’s an utter pleasure to drink.

jdjuice (370) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - DEC 26, 2007
Drank on Christmas morning. Pours thick and opaque with really nice head. Strong caramel and roastiness on the nose. Very strong coffee, chocolate and roastiness. Not too bitter, which I like. However, not as smooth as I would have preferred.

unclemattie (4304) - Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2007
22oz bottle. Super Black. Dark brown head. Pours thick and creamy, just like motor oil. Aroma of a sweet oatmeal stout. Rich roasted malt smell with coffee, chocolate and licorice aromas as well. Flavor is a smooth malt. Finishes with big coffee flavor and a bit of pine. Very sharp bitterness left behind to balance the coffee bean bitterness. Very well balanced, thick and chewy. Just the way a Stout should be. Cheers. Merry Christmas!!

CelticBrew (897) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2007
Pours pitch black forming nice foamy medium black head. Aroma of roasted malted oats, coffee’s, dark/burnt toffee’s, with a nice surprise of hops. I love Mikkeller’s Stateside, so I’m looking forward to this lovely beer! Flavour is of smooth, coffee like tones with a particular burnt oat ending. The hops and malts balance the character so that this beer is exceptionally drinkable. I would love to try this brew on tap, once again our Denmark friends bring us an exceptional beer!

franksnbeans (265) - Columbus, Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Pours black as oil with a large chocolate milk head that dies slow. MMM smells of roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate and cocoa. Tastes of the coffee, dark chocolate malt, oatmeal and finishes with ground coffee and a hop bite. Full and delicious in the mouth. A sipper but I can sip on multiples of this coffee stout anyday. A must try and hits a soft spot I have for these stouts
