hackobock (2433) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2015
October 25, 2015. Bottle at home, best before October 30, 2023.
Thick black with a small brown head. Aroma is roasted malts coffee, licorice, dark sugars, oak, dark chocolate and notes dark berries, soy and vanilla. Taste is sweet, roasted bitter and ligjt salty. Finish is salty, soy, ash, bitter chocolate, sweet dark sugars, black berries light oak and vanilla. Medium to full bodied, smooth and creamy texture, soft carbonation.
Not much calvados character abd perhaps a bit on the salty and heavy roasted sidet still a good imperial stout.

Like others note I didn’t really get the calvados coming through but then again I’m not quite sure what I should be looking for there. Quite thick, sweet and viscous in texture with a brown foamy head. Sweet and alcoholic - liquorice, coffee and chocolate all roasted together. Took a while to get through due to the strength and required a glass of water afterwards. But was powerful and punching heavy with flavour.

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2015
My Bottom Line:
This viscous Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout develops coffee, chocolate and chipotle-like spicy smoke, as oatmeal and alcohol warmth add even more depth.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam crowns the pure black.
-All flavors are well aligned and harmonious. Yet another quality Imperial Stout with the Mikkeller label.
-Coffee appears to be added in here, not a product of specialty malts necessarily.
-The mouthfeel is gorgeously rich.
-Calvados barrel is not clearly apparent; which isn’t a problem, by the way, as it still contributes to the flavor profile.

Lubiere (11589) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2015
A deep dark stout with a very thin dark brown head. In aroma, sweet fruity bitter chocolate with coffee grind, espresso, licorice, herbaceous character, light alcohol warmth, light roasted character, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity chocolate malt with light peated notes, light pepper notes, dark fruits and chocolate, coffee grind, loads of alcohol warmth. Bottle from Bièropholie, via MartinT.

Unde (641) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2015
Thick oily dark brown colour with no head. Aroma is salty, there is herbs, roasted malts, some cocoa. Taste is also salty, a bit coffee in there. Maybe toffee, and caramel sweetness. Thick oily body, low carbonation. Calvados isn’t popping up as much as I was hoping.

jc1762 (387) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 14, 2015
Poured into a teku showing pitch black center and thin coffee brown rims with very quick dissipating foam despite an aggressive pour. The nose shows a roasted dark maltiness with a mix of roasted ground coffee. A whisper of vanilla throughout. The palate is medium bodied and very lightly carbonated. The first flavors show a lot of the roasted ground coffee flavors, more akin to espresso. Finish shows more of a dark chocolate bitterness. Oak is felt at the end given a slight brightness to the beer.

likeatrainwreck (260) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2015
Amazing. Incredibly thick, oily, rich and boozy. Massive burnt treacle, coffee, toffee. Brandy and a hint of apple from the brandy. Amazingly drinkable for such a big beer, avoiding being overly sweet and cloying. Fantastic beer, I’d have a cellar full if it weren’t so expensive.
