30 May 2015, tap at Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Festival. black. Nose is soft but prominent coffee aroma that isn’t bitter. Med body and moderately fizzy. Actually has some Asian spice to it. Not really hot but very unique. Complements the coffee very well. I like it.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle received in a trade with BenH, straight from his bag of obscurities - when I put this in my wants I wasn’t expecting to ever get it so grazie! Pours black with a slight mocha head which soon recedes to a ring around the glass. Aroma is strong black coffee, some malty sweetness, hints of raisins and other dried fruits from a similar category. Taste is mild coffee, slight red wine, vanilla, slightly smoky notes which lead to a semi-dry buttescotchy and cocoa bitter finish. Full body with a creamy and sticky finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of freshly roasted coffee, vanilla, and chocolate, intense roasted aroma. Taste is very evened out coffee with a peak in the after taste, very full and slightly acidic and earthy, with some berries in it, very good coffee notes which aren’t espresso like but more so a long lingering vanilla chocolate berry note. Mouthfeel isn’t completely top notch, and this beer is quite one dimensional, but still - very good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle into snifter. Blackish brown with no head and very thin medium brown lacing around the edge. Smells like slighty boozy chocolatey roasty coffee. Taste is mostly smooth coffee, with a little bit of bitterness and some notes of dark chocolate. Medium-full body with smooth feel. Really tasty brew, great flavor from the fancy coffee. I guess you can’t go wrong with a stout from Mikkeller.
