Pitch black, huge brown head. Smoked aroma, coffee, lots of dark chocolate and cocoa. Strong coffee kick, heavy coffee-like bitterness, but also some notes of grassy hops. Full body, soft carbonation. Creamy texture. Extremely long coffee finish. Another marvelous Mikkeller.

Bottle from Bottledog, King’s Cross. Pours inky black with a creamy tan head. The taste is rich and bitter with nice roast notes. Great aftertaste with coffee and chocolate. There’s quite a bit of hop flavour in there too with some pine notes. Really good beer.

Bottle from systembolaget. Aroma has a sweet scent of coffee and some chocolates. Pours solid black with a nice creamy brown head. Taste is a very nice mixture of coffee, chocolates and vanilla.

Overall I was disappointed with this beer. At$10 for 11 oz bottle I expected to get blown away. I did not. Aroma was coffee and chocolate. Not much coffee taste. Mostly dark chocolate with a bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle bought in Denmark, pours near black with a tan crema, nose is leather, tobacco, coffee, and a faint tart wineyness. Rich, heavy and coffee infused, with dark cocoa, faint pepper and earth, and a light dry bitterness. I’d be happier with it though if there wasn’t an inch of sludge in the bottom of the bottle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle obtained in a trade. Pours dark black with a small bubbly head. Nose is stale coffee and dark fruit. Flavor follows with dark chocolate, oats, and a lot of bitter stale coffee. Medium mouthfeel, perhaps on the watery side for this style of beer. Not great.
