4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 0,33l. Pours a dark brown with a tan head that settles quickly. Aroma is heavy on malts with chocolate and coffee in the end. Flavor is very roasty with mocha, and a mildly bitter finish. Palate is lighter than expected but very creamy.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
FROM NOTES: June 29, ’12
Served in cellar temerature from a 22 ounce bottle into brandy snifter.
A: Espresso, roasted malt, dark chocolate notes and a little bit of yeast and alcohol.
A: Pours pitch black with a big creamy, foamy light-brown head.
T: Strong roasted malt with notes of chocolate. Strong coffee taste but blended well with other tastes. This goes down dangerously well. Very robust flavors.
P: Thick and full bodied, yet so smooth. Velvety smooth and absolute delight!
O: This is the best coffee stout I’ve had in a very long time, maybe ever. While it is, in fact, an imperial oatmeal stout, the intricate mix of malts lends itself to an excellent mouth-feel and velvety smooth taste. I have to say that Mikkeller succeeded in creating a truly smooth and delicious beer.

Pours deep black revealing a bitter, fizzante stout full of coffee that no doubt goes well with breakfast. An espresso shot for alcoholics!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pitch black beer with cinnamon coloured and quite big head. Very dark aroma, lots of coffee, dark chocolate and salty licorice. After the first sip, you can taste sweet dark chocolate and then lots of roasted malts and coffee. Roasted flavors dry your mouth and the after taste is pretty long. Really full body, it was like drinking oil. Totally awesome coffee stout!
