j12601 (8000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep dark black with faint cola highlights and a large dense tan and mocha head. Big dense roast, a whole lot of chocolate leading into dank pungent hops. Medium bodied, cool and smooth initially, picking up some very slowly developing coffee notes. Long slow bitter finish with a nice pithy grapefruit pungency.

Strykzone (5626) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle. Very dark pour with a three finger tan head. Coffee and hops in the nose are surprisingly balanced. That translates to the flavor, too. Lots of coffee with figs and raisins on the stout side. Light chocolate, too. Citrus fruit in the hop side. The finish brings more hops and the stout lessens. Like almost everything Mikkeller does this is interesting and unique. It almost works well, too.

Bottle. Pours black with a medium beige head. Pine hop aroma with hints of roasted malts and chocolate. Flavor of roasted/burnt malts and chocolate followed by pine/citrus hop flavors. Bitter and slightly dry finish.

AKSalmon (74) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2012
I pored this beer into an English pint glass. It’s appearance is deep black with a dark tan head very nice. The aroma is very strong hops almost as if you are in the feeds picking it. The tast is strong coffee with a hoppy bitter finish. This is a very strong stout that is well blended but very different than anything I have ever had. You will need to clens your pallet afterword or anything you consume afterwords will be effected. All in all I recomend it.

delnoche (479) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - FEB 19, 2012
50cl bottle poured into a pint glass. Motor oil black with two fingers brown creamy head. Aroma is strong resinny hops. If I didn’t know better I would have thought this was an imperial IPA. Flavor is hops, hops, roasted malts, coffee, slight chocolate, and hops. Mouthfeel is silky smooth, medium carbonation, and leaves a stickiness like an IPA. Finish is lasting coffee and resin. A very tasty beer. Excellent!

Bottle @ home. Pours a thick-looking deep brown color with a moderate tan head that retains well. Plenty of lacing. The nose is full of sweet chocolate syrup, but there’s also hints of delicate hops, wood, pepper. The taste initally, bright, sweet and a bit hoppy. Tangy fruits. The finish gives over to more bitter chocolate flavor ballasted by roasted malts and coffee beans. The body’s medium/full, the carbonation subtle and effective. Overall, a really interesting beer. Unique, inventive. I’m not crazy about the taste, though that doesn’t mean I don’t like it...

Sask89 (498) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - FEB 10, 2012
Pours black, opaque with a rocky mocha head that dissipates slightly. Aroma is loaded with chocolate and coffee, as well toasted grains, slight caramel and fairly subtle hop scents. Taste is dry and malty at up front but then has an amazing bitter kick in the finish that really makes it unique. Full body, softer carbonation and thicker on the palate. A really great beer, totally different than anything I’ve tried.

nbondi (203) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 10, 2012
Black with attractive milkshake tan head. Dank nose of weed, coffee, and pine. Very cool so far. Thick and velvety. Seriously. This is like drinking a mocha pot milkshake. Bitter dark roast coffee, chocolate, grass, citrus. This is unlike any stout or black IPA I’ve ever tried. Extreme in both directions, but still pulls it off. Lasting, balanced hop/coffee finish. I won’t seek this out often, but I’ll certainly enjoy it when I do.

The fresh piney and floral hops in this beer shined through and the oats came in a close second. Slight taste of roasted malt and chocolate come in last. The shot of hops definitely makes this beer different than the base one.
