Very intens warm black color with an outstanding Beige-brown creamy froth. Nose is rich, exeptionnally well balanced, chocolaty, has tons of softly torrified brasilian coffee beans, hints of tar and salty Dutch drop. There even is a touch of dried fruits, PX, Malaga wine and blackend candi sugar on top of a crŤme brullťe. Now the taste. This is what i call a stout ! It has it all. Not the blackest, the highest in alcohol or the most powerfull of stouts, Bud IMO the best, most elegant and most complex one i ever had. Taste is soft, smooth, very long and perfectly balanced. When you say chocolat, it has impressions of the best of chocolats. When you say coffee, it is the best fresh torrified coffee you can fiend. The mouthfeel is sliky, very vanilla like, has a fine round body, of burned malts, honey, burned breadcrust and sugar bud also has a complex bitterness of hops and wild spring flowers. I never had a boost of powerfull aromaís like this before. The beauty of it is that the composition and the balance is perfect. A MASTERPIECE signed by Mikkel and Kristian. I want it in my museum !!!

Pours a thick, black, and soupy w/ a full, semi creamy froth. Superb hangtime reducing to a satin canopy w/ full sticky lacing. Aromas of sweet roasted coffee bean and dense chocolate malts. Full nectar w/ creamy residual effers. Nice! A big roast component is balanced by a mild sweetness then promptly bittered. Strongly flavored w/ bitter cocoa, roasted coffee bean, leather, and molases. Other nuances of dried rose petal, cherry skins, herbs. The cocoa is so strong it just coats the palate w/ a thick blanket. Then Robo Hop comes round with itís machine guns blazing reducing the cocoa to a mere afterthought. Robo Hop leaves an asprin aftermath to cleans the palate like they used fire back in the dark ages for purification. The finish is long and bittered perfectly for a good balance. A very rich brew, more like a meal. It deserves all the attention coming itís way. Highly recommended.

A complete stout, chocolate, balance, lacing, great full flavor, malt and coffee cascading down your throat....every sip a glorious taste sensation. A super beer - one of, if not the best stouts around, period.

Absolutely the best oatmeal stout that Iíve ever tried.... Pours out into my Sierra Nevada pint glass with a much thicker than expected consistency and itís midnight black... very impressive... Heavenly aroma of extremely strong coffee, oatmeal, chocolate, and some sweet dark fruit as well... Simply divine flavors in this brew... it is loaded with coffee and chocolate with the dark fruit and oatmeal lingering around in the background... one thing that strikes me is that the coffee is not overdone in this one unlike lots of other coffee stouts that Iíve had... This is one incredible brew and sets the standard for other oatmeals in my book..

Iíve found my holy grail of stouts. This is the one. Has an incredible aroma of chocolate, coffee and malts. Explodes with flavor that has a perfect balance of everything a stout should be.

Just perfect. The best coffee based beer, if not the best beer Iíve ever tasted. It took me enough time to finally try it but when I did about 2 months ago it was a special experience. Didnít drink it with breakfast but easily could have.
