GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 30, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours pitch black and looks like all the other beer geek varietals sporting a thick tan head that recedes very slowly and leaves excellent lacing. Aroma is definitely greener than the other versions with some fresh herbal hops on top of the regularly scheduled roasted chocolate malts and espresso beans. The taste also starts with some citrus and pine bitterness which then flows into the bitterness provided by the heavily roasted malts and spent coffee grinds. The finish is dry and bitter. The mouthfeel is smooth as silk with strong carbonation and tingly throughout with equal parts coffee and hop bitterness. Another nice installment from Mikkeller in the beer geek series with some fresh green hops adding some complexity to things. I still like the original better though...

Bottle with Carla, Jade and Nathan. Pours an opaque black with dark brown foam. Smells roasty with hints of caramel, java, and hazelnuts. Tastes roasty with plenty of bitterness towards the end. Fells lightly creamy.

Delightful dry stout. Hop was apparent in the early nose, along with coffee and biscuit. Served at room temperature from a 16 oz bottle. Appearance was jet black and a thick fine head that laced the glass nicely. A thin layer of fine foam remained throughout. Taste was strongly hoppy at the outset, with the dry coffee and roasted malts following; but never any malty sweetness. Finish was nutty and continued dry coffee; strongly bitter. Body was medium/full, even when warm. Texture was creamy and well balanced. Carbonization was moderate throughout. This was an IPA in an Irish stout overcoat. Nice. Not my favorite style and therefore a bit more notable that it fared well in the review.

Hermod (3139) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2011
50cl bottle, BB 03/2012. Poured black with a thin brown head. Strong coffee aroma, also lots of hops and some cocoa. Flavor is very hoppy, more coffee and some chocolate even. Finish is very bitter, with a lingering instant coffee taste. When the beer got more warmer, I get too much burntness in flavor. Too intense, even though the finish was excellent.

mikalooch (224) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Pours pitch black with a frothy tan head, big bubbles, semi thick lacing. Big chocolate and coffee in the nose with a ton of roasted malt, it almost smells burnt. Flavor starts with the deep roasted malt and deep notes of earthy, dirty hops. Rounds out with a touch of caramel sweetness and finishes long and bitter. Sticky, sticky, sticky, almost chewy. Very good, essentially a hoppier and more bitter Beer Geerk Breakfast.

GodOfThunder (1247) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2011
Bottle at slows bbq, Detroit. Pours thick and black, strong hops on the nose. Flavor is chocolate with a lingering hop finish. Tastes like a young stout, which is the intended flavor, and is actually quite good. Nice balance between the sweet chocolate malts and the strong hop presence.

MIBRomeo (2555) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Dark nearly black pour w/ a huge frothy well laced tan head. First sniff was a floral a big floral hop w/ some hints of citrus, underneath that was a well roasted malt. Palate had some nice viscocity, but lacked the thickness I like in a stout. Some sweet hints of nuttiness that probably come from the oatmeal, a well roasted malt (lots of roast notes) and a pretty big grassy hopping. A nice beer, but not one of my favs and not worth the price tag.

Veldrid (120) - Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with thin brown head that was quick to fade and scatter to the edge of the glass. The aroma first hits you with a citrus/pine dose of hops but then you pick up on the bitter chocolate and roasted coffee undertones. The flavor is pretty much the same. It reminds me of a dark chocolate covered espresso bean only instead of the coffee bean it is a hop cone. There is a great combination of bitterness from both the roasted malts and the hops that I enjoyed a ton. Fantastic brew that I plan to go buy more of.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 19, 2011
500ml bottle from Sam’s, Durham. Body and appearance nicely sumptuous like the regular offerings, and here the dry, sharp, chalky quality of the brew is accentuated by the hops, giving it more of a mild bite on the palate and a tangy flavor. Glad to have given this one a shot, despite the sometimes forbidding price point of these Mikkellers.

gyllenbock (4560) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2011
Bottle. (Mikkeller rating number 50) Dark brown with a small tan head. Very interesting aroma and taste. Hops with the typical notes of a stout. Some kind of hybrid between a Black IPA and Stout. I liked the smooth and creamy mouth feel on this one. Nice beer!
