Sampled @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Black body with a big, creamy brown head. Strong aroma of sweet malt, roasted coffee and hops. Flavor is sweet malt, roasted coffee, chocolate, fruity hops, mocha and bitter. A symphony of great flavors.

All round ratings; shared by myself with the London crew at Euston Tap opening night. The nose is coffee; cream, and vanilla. The appearance is opaque black and great creamy lacing. Roasted malts; coffee, cream, vanilla, good bitterness, excellent drinkability, just a good honest and well-made stout. Have had better from Mikkeller and am so glad that the Dark Hole Red Wine edition is not this rare. Otherwise I’d have a loan.

A Mes rate. Bottle at Københavns Ølfestival 2010.
Someone gave me a HUGE glass of this. I wish I could remember who so I could say thanks properly. If whoever it was is reading this, sorry and THANKS! If anything, I think I had a little too much if that’s possible. I recall being somewhat worse for wear once I’d drained the glass... Very dark brown colour with a medium sized but very well behaved beige head. Sweet chocolate and hints of coffee and caramel. Very roasty and dry. Maybe just a little on the basic side for a Mikkeller beer but bloody good stuff all the same.

Bottle 150 cl. Pours an opaque black with an off-white head. Hard roasted malt in the nose with quite some alcohol up there too. Surprisingly light-bodied, hard roasted malt and a little burned coffee accents. Some malt bitterness. 080510

Bottle, 1.5ltr, at KØ-10. It’s a black beer, topped by a finger-thick dark beige head leaving lacings. Sweet, roasted aroma with some alchohol, notes of licorice, and coffee and chocolate. The flavor has chocolate and coffee, hints of licorice, a good hoppy bitterness and some warming alcohol. Full-bodied and smooth, finishing bitter, roasted and slightly warming. A lovely celebration beer. 100506

I have to preface this by saying that I was eating pork at the time, and it paired really well. It smelled like sweet vanilla mocha, and had a smoky sweet (pork) flavor with a bit of ash in the finish. Avant garde.

Pinball (11585) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2010
1.5 litre bottle at home. (going to be a good day heh). clear very dark brown, almost black. smooth light brown creamy head. Looks quite fantastic. relatively mild roasted aroma, faint flowery. flavor is roasted stuff, good blend, coffee, brown sugar. pretty mild considering the alc. percentage. lots of roast and coffee. Had this from the fridge - i think it is a little too cold, heating up, it should develop even more character. there might be just a little too much of a sugary taste in it.
