UPDATED: MAY 21, 2011 Keg at BrewDog Edinburgh. Pour is "Mikkeller Black," with a good couple centimeters brown head. Smell is hops, something smoky, some coffee and a hint of sweet chocolate/vanilla. Taste is sweet to start, balanced by a massive bitterness. A really interesting beer, well-balanced and tasty. UPDATED: bumped up the scores a bit, like this a lot.

Bottle. Poured that coffee soda dark black like most of this series.Nose is coffee, dark roasted malt with a Huge hop charector added.flavor follows that nose. The hops truly intesify creating an additional bitterness to the huge finish of this. Quite delicious.

One of the prettiest beers I’ve ever poured. Smells is staggering. Dark roasted malts, good hop backing, slight chocolate behind. Taste is bitter hops, coffee, roasted malt and some smoke flavor. Really good, my first Mikkeller, but not my last.

Bottle. Very dark brown pour, almost black, with frothy tan head. Roasted malt, light chocolate flavor, heavily roasted coffee-espresso, grapefruit, bitter pine, and slightly metallic hops. A strong dark stout, with lots of hops. Good, but I probably won’t drink it again.

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.
