4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours opaque black, medium brown tan head. Holds well in my snifter, with lace forming as the head recedes a little.
Aroma is a complex roasty, chocolatey, nougat-like medley. There’s also an odd, indescribable funky component in there too, though not necessarily a flaw.
On the palate the thick, syrupy body pleases quite well, and canvasses the palate with rich roasty flavors, espresso & espresso crema, and finishes with a pleasant bitterness that is found in the best of espressos.
Finish is thick and rich with flavors of dark roasted coffee beans, almost charred from roasting.

bottle. Pours inky black with a nice brown head. Nose is wonderful espresso with cocoa. Taste is coffee and tasty chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium, thinner than expected with carbonation. Very nice brew, but liked Brunch One-for-One better.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle pours a slick, oily black with a dense mocha head sitting atop. I couldn’t resist poking, leaving a finger sized crater which held form and took quite some time to dissipate. Once it finally did, the head collapsed, leaving nice sticky lacing. The aroma started off with the typical cocoa, roasted malt, and coffee. As it warmed, the nose exploded, showing off more anise, dark fruit, and tobacco. The taste is definately unique and more complex as it approaches room temperature. Flavor is heavy in dark chocolate and roasted malt, hints of molasses and tar, and the overall presence of a finely made espresso. The mouthfeel is dense and chewy like a stout should be, with a slightly bitter finish. All in all, this is an amazing beer which covers it’s 11% abv very nicely. Can’t wait to have some more!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.65 l bottle at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Pitch black color with small very dark head. Sweet, roasty and strongly coffeish aroma with dark fruits and alcohol. Sweet, very roasty and coffeish flavor with burnt sugar, some vinous notes and burning alcohol. Very thick viscous palate. As often with Mikkeller beers, there is too much burning alcohol and no drinkability.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2014 Black with a low grey head. Intense aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and liqourice. Smooth as hell, and extremely full bodied. The flavours begin very roasted and a bit sweet before they go into head on-bitterness, like chocolate and cocoa combined with a bit of lime and citrus. It is unbelievable smooth!
