Vaiz (3348) - Den Haag, - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle @ beer temple. Pitch black pour, dark brown head. Aroma is roasty, tobacco, alcohol, creamy, bread, yeast, ash, pipe tobacco and spices. Flavor is smooth creamy black roasted ashy goodness. Amazing balance, huge body, extremely full. Powerful and great brew.

wvhoran (239) - Tasmania, - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a large but dissipating brown head. The aroma is thick and rich, with dark chocolate and coffee, roasted malt, vanilla, alcohol, oak, and apple-calvados notes. The flavour is again full, with lots of dark malts, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, light smoke, oak, and apple-cider like sweetness. The body is close to full and there is an alcohol burn. The fudge-like quality of George and the apple brandy are not my ideal combination. I much prefer the cognac version.

Marheb (2048) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2014
Notes riches et profondes de café vert, fudge moelleux, caramel fondu, tabac, vanille tous enrobés du Calvados très expressif qui donne aussi une finale hyper sèche de pommes cuites. La corpulence est forte mais moins spectaculaire, par une mince marge, que la version cognac.

slowrunner77 (1789) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 9, 2014
"Another super smooth high abv stout from Mikkeller. Rich in every sense. More stout than barrel at first, but the apple sweetness comes out in contrast to the chocolate as it warms, and they end up playing off each other very nicely. "

budznsudz (557) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Black pour with minimal tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, ripe stone fruit, and wood. Taste is silky smooth chocolate and berry followed by a strong smoky peat flavor. Very satisfying.

Klimaet (154) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2014 Bottle shared with a friend. Pours black with a shortlisting but very creamy, almost mocca-like brown head. Aroma is extremely boozy, parfumey, chocolate, coffee, licorice and calvados bourbon-like sweetness. This is my first Calvados-aged beer! Taste is extremely sweet, thick and rich of coffee, chocolate and a nice roastedness to it. Bittersweet and roasted dry finish. Good alcohol to the taste but not as extreme as the smell, which is good. Low carbonation and a thick creamy body.
