4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours black with minimal brown head, earthly coffee aroma with a blend of chocolate and slight licorice. The smell is sweet but the taste is medium bitter and sour. It is a medium body, thin texture and average carbonation. Overall its a complex beer with a lasting aftertaste comparable to a gourmet coffee experience. Anyone with a palate for this kind of thing would find it enjoyable. Thank you Mikkeller.

Bottles pours a dark brown, near black, one finger tan head that fades to a ring. Aromas of coffee, oats, toffee, chocolate and roasted nut. Taste is iced coffee with chocolate bearing down. Nice thick body lets the flavors stick to the palate. Wishing their was a bit more depth to the chocolate but, hey, it’s a coffee beer! Nice finish with deep oat, cereal, nuttiness pushing the coffee bitterness back to the middle. Very nice beer!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
black, cloudy, rocky head, brown foamPowerful aroma with a much more intense punch from the coffee. I’m not getting as much roasted aroma on this beer, but it might be that the coffee is overpowering some of the other less intense aromas.
As with the aroma the coffee is very intense and numbs the other flavors. I’m picking up hints of chocolate, roasted malts and vanilla. There is also a noticeable grassy hoppy flavor present. Even if the coffee flavor is quite intense it does not ruin the beer at all. It works really well!
The carbonation level is higher which makes the mouth feel of the beer less smooth. Personally I would prefer lesser carbonation.
Very long finish and a lot more bitter than the one brewed at Nøgne Ø. There is a slight hint of alcohol present as well.

A great stout, full of metallic aromas, and a creamy mouthfeel. Not quite brave enough to have it with breakfast, but would love to.
