4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle, pours jet black with a medium brown head. Nose is extremely roasty, with deep dark dried fruit, espresso, some cocoa, and roasted malt - yum. Flavour is unbelievably complex, with loads of dark dried fruits, very high percentage earthy dark chocolate, roasted malt and booze. Wow - this is one of Mikkeller’s most elegant beers. So many layers. Luxurious mouthfeel, that ends on notes of roast and alcohol. Fantastic stuff.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
So as far as I can tell, this is the "American" non-oatmeal version of Beer Geek brunch Weasel, one of my all-time favorites. The coffee is not quite as over the top but is still prevelant. There is also more bitter hops and roasted malts, and a little less of the otherwordly smoothness that BGBW offers...but I can totally see ehy this is a 100th percentile beer as well. Very nice and covers the abv quite well

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home. Rich black pour with a finger of tan foam. Nose is roasted malt, sweet coffee, vanilla, and ash. A lot of licorice and dark chocolate as well. Slight grape jelly. Flavor is a touch acidic. Spicy coffee and nutmeg. A hint of port, some licorice, and dark chocolate. A fair amount of coffee and roasted malt. Slight ash and earth on the finish. Burnt sugar in there as well. Typical okay, ashy Mikkeller stout.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2 oz. bottle, purchased from State Line liquors in MD. Beautiful rich black pour, small light brown head. Nose and flavor are just as expected, with big voluptuous medium roast coffee, chocolate ganache and cacao, hints of vanilla. Delicious, but not quite as captivating as Brunch Weasel was the first few times I had it. Still, delicious.
