2012 bottle. I actually drank this with breakfast (maybe I have a problem). The mouthfeel and body were absolutely perfect on this one. Velvety, creamy, heavy, rich. Tons of coffee, but it’s smooth and sweet and lacks the characteristic sour/acid notes that many coffee stouts have lurking in them. You get some wonderful chocolatey flavors as well. The only bitterness is in the finish, and it is perfect.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Botle. Jet black pour with smaller dark khaki head. Aroma is strong roasted malts and bitter strong coffee, hint of hop bit. Flavor is bitter coffee (some of the bitterness is probably from the noticeably strong hops), piney hop, roasted sweet malts. Great mouthfeel. Overall, this was a good beer, but perhaps I had too high of expectations. The hop/coffee balance was just a tad off for my palate.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is subtle. Dark fruit, and hints of cereal. Pours a blackish brown with a lasting foamy khaki head and spotty lacing. The taste is roasted meaty malts, roasted coffee, bitterness with a grainy finish. Full body with medium carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable robust stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I have heard a lot about this beer and finally I had the chance to taste it.
Mikkeller makes really good beer. When the name of the beer has the word GEEK in it, it just has to be good :-)

Mørk farge på øla, pent lysebrunt skum, perfekt høyde. Holder seg fint i glasset. Litt dårlig luktesans idag, men. Søtlig aroma. Sjokolade. Lukter "riktig" det lille jeg kan lukte. Fin munnfølelse, bløt og fin. Smak av røstet bygg, bitterhumle (amerikansk?) og ekspresso. Allround kaffe øl som er velbalansert, kanskje litt for bitter ettersmak. Det er vanskelig å lage god kaffeøl og mike murphy og mikkel har absolutt laget en god en. Dette er altså lervig aktiebryggeri sin utgave.

Draught. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is dominated by dark roasted coffee having some hops and minimal plastic notes. Flavor has burnt and roasted malts, dark chocolate and dark-roasted coffee, the oats give crunch and lightness to the taste. Mouthfeel is nice and thick but has low carbs, nice! Bitter dark chocolate finish with some nuts, aftertaste also has piney hops. Nice combination! All the flavors blend together nicely into a smooth brew.
