Thanks to Gramity for sharing this bad boy! Sampled back to back with the highland edition. Pour was dark black fudge but it was pretty dark out and difficult to see. The smell is lots of bourbon and oak. The taste is a fair bit of bourbon up front followed by roasted ash.. like the highland a pretty old bottle alos and I think what is left of the coffee is now the burnt aftertase on the finish..note to self..drink these suckers fresh!

Ferris (3899) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle - Peppery, cardamom and other spices. Jet black thin persistent brown head. Roasted malts and again more spices, I get no coffee in this at all. Bad bottle? Still nice stout with a tone of peppery spice and sweet finish.

Foffern (1190) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle shared with (and great courtesy of) ClubGonzo and Inbreak. Pours a deep reddish brown colour with a small light brown head. Sweet aroma of bourbon, spices, licorice, brown sugar, cola, caramel, roasted malt and chocolate truffles. Has a powerful taste with a great touch of alcohol. Is more roasted in the end with a good dose of anis. Has a oily mouth feel, and a lasting medium bitterness. A powerful stout but is balanced and nice.

Davros (1920) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 21, 2013
Aged 3.5 years. Pours black with a very dark tan head. Nose shows coffee, bourbon, oak, vanilla, roasted malt, coconut and cocoa. Lovely. Bold flavours. Lots of roasted malt and coffee along with bourbon and soft oak. A fair bit of booze, but not aggressive or sharp. Pretty full-on. Carbonation is almost non-existent. Needs a creamier mouthfeel.

Scopey (6718) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2013
Bottle at Bruce’s, thanks to Leighton. It pours opaque dark brown with a small tan head. The nose is roasted malt, fudge, vanilla, toasted coconut, chocolate and peanut brittle. The taste is roasted malt, earth, medicinal, boozy, bourbon, vanilla, TCP, wood and decent bitterness with a warming, roasty finish. Full body, moderate carbonation and oily mouth-feel. A pretty big beer all-round, but I couldn’t get through much.

Bottle @ Bruce’s. Many thanks to Leighton for busting out this Mikkeller rarity! The pour’s deep murky brown with small tan head. The nose is fig, rich chocolate cake, treacle, burnt brown sugar. Notes of vanilla and wood. The taste is strong vanilla and wood. Boozy chocolate covered prunes. Rich flavors, though I don’t get much civet coffee in this. Oily, full body. Slightly hot. Overall, pretty excellent stuff.

Gurthnar (1654) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 25, 2013
Bottle shared by Pallieter85, thank you! Aroma coffee, strong roasted, lightly burnt, very light tar. Black colour. Taste fruity plums, really strong roasted to burnt. The taste is really strong and coating, it could use some softening, lets say with ice cream. Nice experience, though certainly not exceptional.
