4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a black colour with a thin, mocha head. Aroma of roasted malts, freshly brewed coffee, ash, some chocolate, smoke, oats and raisin. Taste of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, earth, some smoke, subtle raisin, prune, slight alcohol, smoke and burnt tones. Full bodied and soft carbonation. A full on, roasted coffee bitterness with subtle fruitiness in the finish. A superb stout, well worth the hype. Glorious roasted coffee aroma and flavour with some fruit. Thick and strong too. More like a imperial stout.

Bottle from Cornelius. Chocolate and coffee in perfect harmony with some sharp boozy cherry. Balanced and very drinkable.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz. bottle poured at my brother’s house in Methuen, MA. Pours black with a slight tan head that died quickly. Smells like coffee (and a bit of chocolate?). Tastes like coffee and has a nice bitter finish. Touch of carbonation but not much. This is a great beer. Wish I had more than one.
Extremely drinkable...maybe even at breakfast (although it’s dinner time right now).

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Martins West in Redwood City. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts. Taste is dark chocolate, coffee, mild tartness / acidity that is lovely. Not as smooth on the mouthfeel considering the oatmeal. Very good... but with a score of 100 and coming from Mikkeller I think I was expecting something more exceptional.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: this beer pours with a small tan head, the beer is very black but has some small brown hues on the edges in the light
Aroma: coffee, dark roasted malt
Taste: coffee bitterness, not especially sweet, bitter finish
Palate: average carbonation, creamy thick mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste
Overall: I'm not picking up much complexity but it's very well executed, coffee with a nice creamy mouthfeel are the predominant aspects I'm my mind,

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a soapy tan head. Aroma is of coffee and chocolate and so is the flavor. Aftertaste is that of espresso. It’s drinkable and quite enjoyable, but I expected a little more. I am not finding its uniqueness.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
medium creamy brown head
thick oily body, funny paints glass on brown
aroma, roasted grains of coffee, not the esspresso liquid but, pure grains, strong coffee punch in the nose and the tongue!
after few sips, you feel dark chocolate also.
after drunk many coffee beers that is for sure the best so far,
I think oatmeal make some job here, this beer is very smooth.
liked it, but for sure if you dont like coffee just, grab something else :)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Sensoric glass. Pitch black with medium, brownish, densed head. Medicore head retention, great lacing. Clear roasted malts aroma. Great and highly intense aroma of coffee, dried, black fruits. Also a touch of milk chocolate aroma is noticable. Taste is medium bitter with some intensification in the end. Light to medium coffee sourness. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, finish is bitter and semi-dry. No alcohol warming. In overall perfectly brewed stout for coffee geeks. Once again MIkkeller shows the evidence how should beer brewed with coffee look like.
