pushkinwow (1955) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
1500ml bottle via the Mikkeller shop. Black with a light mocha head that mostly fades. Orange rind and Grand Marnier booziness, semi-roasted, malt, mild latte, some vanilla and a bit of woodiness. Full body and moderate carbonation, smooth, sweet at first but becomes a bit bitter on the finish. Interesting and worth trying.

Staffan47 (857) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2014
Provning av Stella serien på Mikkeller HQ dagen före CBC-14. Funkar på en provning men vad ska man ha den här ölen till frågar jag mig? Rund och len i smaken. Har vissa drag av kaffe och stout-dofter. (har fortfarande inte betalat Hasse för den här kom jag på nu.)

Tide (1643) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2014
Sample from a friend at CBC’14. Black color, brown head. Bitter/sour taste with coffee, nuts, roasted malts and hops. Bitter/sour finish with coffee, nuts, fruits, syrup and acidic notes. Very weird brew.

Habanero (2443) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 8, 2014
Bottled. Pours pitch black with an average, lacing, tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, dark fruit,vanilla and wood. Sweet flavor that ends dry, bitter and with alcohol notes. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A great impy.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle, pours black with a thin tan head. Nose is a mellow, yes you get some coffee and chocolate but its all very subtle but not in a good way. Sweet malts on the palate with the coffee and chocolate again but thrown in this time is a wee hint of licorice, nice beer.
