deep dark colour, moderate, creamy dark brown head; aroma of coffee, hints of chocolate, ash, vanilla and smoked woods; taste of roasted coffee, and hints of smoke, maybe ash - much less complex than expected based on the aroma; long lasting roasted bitter aftertaste; dry mouthfeel;good, though a bit less complex stout than I expected

Batch 756 bottle from 2012, enjoyed at vacation. Robust and balanced dark color with a solid enduring head. Notes of peat, coffee, wood, barley and sweetness. Thoroughly enjoyable, but might be tuned with more chocolate to suite my tastes better. Must try the coffee used on its own once. Can be used as dessert companion to coffee-based ices with success.

Jó sör ez, de a Mikkeller féle felhozatalból vannak számomra kedvesebb sörök is. Ettől ez még simán egy harmadik helyre léphet nálam a stout kategóriában.

Bottle to snifter while watching Brazil beat Croatia in the opening match, World Cup 2014. Black coffee color with thin tan head and lacing. Bold coffee, sweet toasted oats and vanilla bean. Dominant dark roast coffee flavors offset by creamy sweetness from the oats. Well balanced and tasty. Outstanding coffee stout.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Chocolate, smoke, very pungent
Appearance: Dark brown head which leaves beautiful foam patterns along the glass, color is very dark brown
Taste: Dark chocolate, toasty coffee follows, rounds out with heavy bitterness
Palate: Mouth feel is creamy and not as thick as I expected. Flavors stick to the tongue for a awhile.
Overall: Excellent stout that brings espresso level bitterness to the table. Very similar to others offered by Mikkeller and Evil Twin in both aroma and flavor. Really enjoyed this one and happy to taste the beer that put Mikkeller on the map!
