Another Greek brunch from krompt, that weasel. He tried too convince me it wasn’t that good and the standard brunch weasel was better. He is a liar, don’t trust him. I’ve never had cognac but this makes me very interested in trying it because it works well for this beer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an opaque black with little head and great legs up the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, cognac, coffee, light oak and vanilla and a gentle sweet candy aroma. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, sweet cognac, oaky vanilla, coffee and a complex and well balanced alcohol warmth and bitterness on the finish. Cognac also makes the finish dryish and makes this beer great to sip on.

Had a few of these a while ago. I saw one while beer shopping not too long ago. I did not pick it up. I think I’m dumb.

Bottle @ GT’s Cat Cabana. Thanks to Derek for this one. Black pour with a small tan head, if anything. Soy sauce, vanilla, smoke, and lots of oak. Plenty of roasted malt, dark chocolate, licorice, and a nice touch of brandy. Flavor is much better. Really nice sweetness of vanilla and brandy. Oak, roast, and dark chocolate. Subtle bitterness of roast and coffee. Smooth, lowly carbonated. Slightly smokey. Pretty nice.

Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The smell is great, wood, cognac, nice alcohol, and could keep smelling for a while. The look is dark brown in color with a tan head. The taste is alcohol, dark, wood, and cognac.

Aroma hides the alcohol content with a nosefull of roasted coffee, dark chocolate and dates. Really had to work the glass while pouring to get a small amount of head which disappeared quickly. Nice cacao finish adds wonderful bitterness which cuts the sweetness of the barrel. Big chewy, sticky mouthfeel. Best tasting beer I have ever had, can’t wait to get some more Mikkeller.

11/15/12 $13.99 bottle received in a trade drank on a Friday night before 1st resident interview day.
Pours jet black with zero head. Smell is very boozy with subdued dark roasted smells. Taste is boozy at first and then you get to the stout. Dark bitter chocolate dark roasted coffee. Finish is bitter almost a numbing quality. The mouthfeel is exceptional very thick and chewy. As it warmed it got more complex.
Wonderful exceptional beer.
