Black pour topped with a substantial lasting brown foamy head. Cirtus and coffee aroma. Thick creamy mouthfeel strong coffee taste mixed with an initial sweetness followed by a sharp lasting bitter finish. My second Mikkeller beer ... I think I like this guy!

pintbypint (2976) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 30, 2011
500ml brown bottle. Black opaque pour. Good sized rocky, creamy head, light brown in colour, Lots of clinging lace. Hoppy citrusy notes, hints of pine and lots of coffee and chocolate in the aroma. Taste is chocolate/cocoa malt up front, citrusy middle followed by black coffee. Ends with a burst of citrus- orange, pine, grapefruit, long bitter and coffee/roasty aftertaste. Medium body, medium carboantion. Another killer Breakfast brew from Mikkeller.

Blairgus (3391) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2011
28 March 2011, on tap! really dark black, thin looking w/ thin brown lacing. really bold nose. very "stouty". burnt coffee and burnt molasses. thin body and mildly fizzy, mildly oily. really a great beer. the first time i would say i have noticed an "oatmeal" element in an oatmeal stout. roasted coffee beans, not much else. but it all goes together so perfectly!

keepersj12 (2945) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2011
A stout with a twist. Maybe it’s because I’m sick of stouts but this had a nice twist. A nice black pour with a small tan head. The head laces down the glass. The aroma is chocolate and coffee with a very nice hop bite. The flavor is very nice like the aroma with a big hop bite. Different and welcomed for a stout.

More stout goodness. Black. Bubbles. Dark tan. messy. sticky. The big ass citrus has died off a bit, mostly being paved over by Deep roast, coffee and oatmeal yumminess. Chocolate, orange and some funky fruits that keep this unique in spots yet keep me on edge as I find citrus and coffee distracting. Interesting flavour spin with the massive coffee and hop blend. Damn thick flavour.. amazingly thick. This beast is chewy - it’s the only way to consume it - grind it up into tiny gelatinous globs and enjoy. The bitterness is huge - seems to come from every front - coffee, chocolate and massive hops. Oatmeal, unsweetened grapefruit - hard to really pin point these with the deluge of malt fists clubbing me into submission. The coffee harshness is almost taking over but the sweetness of the oatmeal is attempting to put up a fight. I will supply them with bananas to defend themselves. Getting more wobbly here.... Thick brew, huge roast and bitter finish. Yea, this kills a lot of beers cause it’s massive but at the same time, as usual, the coffee doesn’t quite work for me. The burning nose burp was eye watering. This new Nevermore album is decent. This is a good beer but.. yea... yea

Thanks tdtm82! Dark opaque black color, small brown head. Coffeish, hayish hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Coffeish, toasted malty with cocoa and fresh hops thrown into it. Long lingering bitterness with roasted malts. Black IPA it is!

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2011
500ml bottle purchased at wlv. refridgerated and consumed on 3/20... pours a medium bodied dark stouty pour, predominantly opaque, and topped with a frothy light khaki head that quickly recedes leaving a soapy residue around the edges... aroma of bitter dark chocolate and a blast of piney/citrusy hops which reminds me somewhat of nightstalker. a little roast and coffee lingering into the mix as well. nice assertive hoppiness and overall combination of scents... flavors deviate very little from the aroma. bitter dark chocolate, roasted grain, and coffee mesh with robust citrus and piney hoppiness while also contributing a mild degree of bitterness on the backkend. a bitter citrus rind finish lingers for the duration and then some. i’m thinking this is pretty over the top and could use some sweetness but i do generally enjoy this one. thin to medium body, leaving a little bit of earth and chalkiness on the palate. carbonation is present and active but not overly so. dang is this thing bitter. a cold hop black iced coffee.
