Excelente. Negro opaco, espuma beige. Aromas torrefactos y achocolatados. Ligero dulzor de inicio en boca que pasa después a un achocolatado amargor que va creciendo. Aunqee con una densidad alta, se bebe muy bien. Muy rica

15 month old bottle poured into snifter. Nogne version. Beige head. Viscous black. Slightly floral smell - smells good for a stout. Taste - Big roasted barley, some coffee, slightly floral finish with some whisky notes. Becomes very smooth and chocolately if it’s given a bit of time to breathe.

Very nice coffee aroma. Dark black color, nice thick head. Frothy head, but watery texture to the beer. The taste is mostly coffee, with some grains, vegetable and dark chocolate all chipping in. A nice beer, but I think too much coffee for my taste.

2012 1 PT .9 fl oz bottle poured into tulip. Pours a nice deep black with a 1/4" thick head. Aroma is mainly coffee and dark chocolate, with, of course, roasted malts. Taste is light-medium bitter coming from the roasted aspect with a slightly sour finish (again coming from the roast). Body is rather medium with a slick texture. Carbo is soft with tiny bubbles. And come to think of it, there’s some very slight astringency in the finish too. Overall, well, this is my second Mikkeller and I have to say that I can’t deny the craftsmanship that goes into the guy’s brews...that’s for sure! I liked the Beer Hop Breakfast a tad more though, but that’s purely out of preference. This is a classic, and something I would buy regularly...if only it was available in Quebec. Very, very well done. Oh, and f you SAQ (liquor board/state monopoly in Quebec, Canada)

Pours a black brown with a tannish head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Slightly smokey in the taste. Extremely smooth. Nice better smokey finish. Just like coffee with breakfast.

Lite askfat och olika sorters rök. Bra stout. Men lite kärvaste laget. Vinner säkert på något års lagring

Bottle, rated from backlog. Roasty bitter chocolate aroma, with lots of coffee bitterness/astringency. Taste with a fair amount of chocolate malty flavors, and coffee is present but not overwhelming. Good balance. Very nice beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The color of the beer is an opaque dark brown with both a medium tan head and large pieces of sediment in the bottom of the glass once poured. The aroma is reminiscent of coffee, toasted oatmeal, roasted malts, with a touch of vanilla. The taste is mildly umami, slightly bitter, and slightly sweet; furthermore, the palate complements the taste due to the fusion of the medium body, soft carbonation, sticky texture, and a bitter finish.
