3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 330 ml.
Coffee, chocolate in aroma, some smoky notes.
Black color with brown head.
Start with light malt sweetness, that immediately became bitter - chocolate and roasted malt bitter.
Medium body, avarage carbonation with very long bitter finish and little bit astringent...
Looks a bit disbalanced for me...Disappointed...

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Sun-blocking color with slight mocha colored head after a slow bottle pour. Great oat and coffee roast taste with a finish begging for another sip. Saw high score after tasting and was not suprised. One of my favorites now. Off to search for more.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Ales by Mail, brewed in Norway. Pours dark brown, nearly reddish black, foamy chocolate brown head. Aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, red berries, leather, roast. It’s medium sweet and not very bitter until the finish, when roasted coffee beans linger a bit with some chocolate tempering it. Nice full body and warming. Great stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 0.33, shared with CanCrusher. Pours murky, almost black color with medium creamy brown head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, white coffee and chocolate. Taste start with rich and heavily roasted sour malt, follows by strong coffee with well hidden alcohol and medium bitter finish. Full body, creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate. I am totally surprised as I can enjoy in beer made with coffee that I drink. And what is more, coffee beans were shitted by weird animal called civet :)

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Najlepszy stout jaki miałem okoliczność pić - piana dość krótka ale piękna, brązowa - aromat palony, słodki czekoladowy i kawa, poza tym fajny drzewny zapach. W smaku goryczkowe, gorzka czekolada, kawa palona, delikatny karmel. Idealna oleista konsystencja, duża pijalność pomimo 7,5% alkohol niewyczuwalny - no zatem mam śniadanie o 3.30 w nocy :)

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours opaque, almost jet black with small chocolate brown head into a Mikkeller glass. Sweet Aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, treacle. Taste is much more bitter than the smell suggests, but sweet up front. Dark chocolate first, then the coffee kicks in hard, with a little bit of leather too. Lighter bodied than what I normally expect from an oatmeal stout but leaves a nice oily mouth coating. Fairly nicely balanced beer and very enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Drunk at the end of OFF festival, katowice train station. we hid it in coffee cups. some security guards came over and were like HOHOHOHOOOO what have we here?? to a sleeping hipster. they gave him a bunch of shit and all the while we were sipping it in front of em. no fucks givennnnn
so the beer itself is awesome. pours thick and creamy, with sticky frothy head. intense coffee aroma, vanilla, slightly smoky too. the taste and feel were delicious. rich burned malty flavour of coffee and chocolate. good balance of bitter and sweet. low fizz and very creamy. probably my fav stout so far. cant wait to drink the bacon one now too

On tap @ Mikkeller, Bangkok. Pitch black, slim brown head. Nice light aroma of coffee, vanilla and chocolate. Taste is beautifully rounded and soft with the mentioned aroma’s as flavours, nicely bitter hoppy too. Dry, lingering aftertaste. Soft mouthfeel, low carbonation, good body.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
149 SEK at Systembolaget for 750 ml). Powerful with taste of coffee and toasted malts. Not sure if I would like this for breakfast... Even if very good, not really worth the price.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle into glass. Bought @ Centrala Piwna, Poznań. Smoky aroma, coffee, chocolate, roasty, bread. Dark, almost black liquid with rich, tan coloured head, very durable, great lacing. Taste slightly sweet, definitely not a bitter beer. Average carbonation, alcohol well hidden, roasty notes are felt on the palate, very drinkable. Medium-full body. Great beer overall. Could have had a bit more coffee in the aroma. Still: a classy stout.
btw...2000th rating of this beer :D
