Large snowdrift expresso/tan head. Aroma is thin resinous pine, light roasted malt, and perhaps some chocolate although it’s hard to tell with the pine dominating. Taste is roasted malt, oat, light chocolate, bitter coffee, and medium-level bitter hops and pine throughout. Neutral, slightly watery feel in the mouth. Extremely drinkable hop-forward stout. I like it.

Huge notes of pine fill the air, along with roasted notes, slight coffee and chocolate. Poured black, with a big 3 finger mocha head, dissipated to a spongy film, leaving sticky, spongy lacing all the way down. The big pine notes are lot more balanced in the taste. Though bold, they melt nicely with big chocolate and coffee notes. The coffee bitterness blends well with the hop bitterness. The feel is nice and creamy, solid medium bodied, even a tad chewy. Nice bit of substance for the style. Overall, I’m in love. I adore hoppy stouts, and this is a shining example. Kudos Mikkel.

DalzAle (2000) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Bottle. Dark black pour, a little lasting lacing and a fresh coffee and black pepper aroma. Flavor is also dirty bitter espresso, some lactose, vanilla sweetness and finished with a nice bitter bite. Everything a coffee beer should be, I’d happily pay $11 for another bottle of this.

marcus (6788) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours jet black with a majestic light brown lacy head and a magnificent chocolate aroma. I hope this tastes as good as it looks and smells! Yes, it does. There is a delicious chocolate and coffee flavor with a smooth oatmeal texture that sticks to the palate, and a dry pleasantly bitter finish.

lamas (1373) - Washington DC, USA - APR 30, 2011
500mL bottle. A jet-black pour with a thick & creamy mocha head. Great balance in the aroma - lots of grapefruits, oranges, and citrus rinds along with freshly roasted coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, cream, pipe resin, and a distinct earthiness. Medium body. Light caramel upfront in the taste along with some dark chocolate. A touch of cream in the middle. A peppery finish with some harsh grapefruitiness and rye. A drying finish that lingers. There is a strange aftertaste of cigarettes. Roasty all the way through. Unique.

mlunger12 (645) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2011
500ml, very oatmeal aroma, slight twinge of hops, very earthy on the backend, sweet and then earth. This is quite nice.

mixmasterob (883) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2011
Gorgeous black pour with a big brown head. Stuck around. Big piney hops wafted from the glass out front, then a big coffee presence along with some roasty malt. Flavors were big time hops, lots of pine. This mixed well with the coffee and roast flavors of beer geek breakfast. The finish was big time bitter. The coffee bitterness mixed with the hop bitterness, made for a long lingering roasty bitter finish. Mouthfeel was creamy, full, carbonation light. Very nice.

TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 27, 2011
Strong dark malts aroma dominated by the aroma underscored by hops and %. Not much foam on this one, nice lacing though, nice and dark. Thick sweet stout wih lots of bittering matched up with% at the end give the Mikkeller breakfast flavou I’ve come to expect and enjoy. The coffee is noticably absent from this breakfast, but the stoit delivers.
