500 ml. bottle. Pours a thick,gradually collapsing mocha head, with copious lacing, over a nearly black (SRM 40) body.....nose is heavy coffee, lighter chocolate, light grass....taste is coffee, chocolate, toffee/caramel, finishing with an almost harsh, bitter, bite....mouth feel medium to heavy, slightly hot, carbonation makes a creamy texture. This is very obviously a Stout. It is a bit unbalanced to the roasted coffee aromas and flavors. Additionally it is too hot on the finish. This is probably not the ABV, but rather some of the other ingredients. BJCP 7/3/13/4/7

Dark pour, but not the blackest stout ever. Beige head. Aroma is coffee, alcohol, hops. Taste is the same and very bitter. I couldn’t figure out where all the bitterness was coming from. Was the the coffee alcohol, or the hops? Actually tasted like it was higher than 7.5% abv. Body was medium for style. Good beer, but a little too bitter and hot to give it an elite rating.

Black pour wiht a tan head. aroma is super earthy hop leaf, soil, chocolate, coffee grounds, pine needle. Flavor is luscious chocolate nib, earthy, leafy hopping with an ultra dry, chalky, roasty finish.

Black pour, frothy tan head. Aroma holds fantastic notes of earthy hop, chocolate, coffee, pine, manure and tobacco. Really interesting and I dig it. Flavor is absolutely full of soil, grass and spruce, char and ash, oats, and baker’s chocolate. Absolutely love the dryness. The palate is surprisingly rich for an under 8% stout, but still awesome chalkiness and effervescence. I really really like this beer.

Courtesy of craftycarl21! The pour is dead black while the head is tan and creamy. The aroma is about as earthy as a beer can get. Earthen citrus hop, roasty espresso, manure-coffee, evergreen, and chocolate abound. The flavor holds huge chalky roast, cocoa nib, grassy evergreen soil, and coffee grounds. The palate is massively thick with creamy effervescence and a tannic barrel finish. Epic.

C: Pretty much opague black, just a slight bit of redness shining through. S: Lovely combination of coffee, chocolate, caramel and hops.T: Very, very hoppy and dark at the same time. Love it.

A very good beer. One of the best in Mikkellers beer geek series, perhaps overtaken by beer geek bacon. This obviously have a more hoppy flavour, which always is nice :-)

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 13, 2011
Bottle at home. Pours impenetrable black (what a surprise for a Mikkeller stout), no real head to speak of, weak lacing. Nose is gently hoppy, mostly of the pine variety, and dense, deep roast. Probing deeper I pick up notes of chicory, chocolate mousse, black coffee grounds, and hints of tar. Flavours of tar, spicy tight hops, and soap, creosote, and burnt toast. Very balanced, not as open as the Beer Geek Breakfast, but still quite nice.

phaleslu (6701) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2011
500 ml bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. Pours a deep, dark brown color with a small tan head. Aroma of earthy, leafy hops, coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, and a bit of rubber. Flavor of really nice coffee and cocoa notes in balance with earthy and piney hops, with some citrus peel, and toast in the background. Medium-bodied, with a rich, robust mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Really nice.
