Osprey87 (1618) - WALES - MAY 13, 2013
Bottle, a few months old, into snifter. Thick black pour, not much head - just a beige ring around the glass. Smells slightly of cognac, unsurprisingly, and burnt plastic. Mouthfeel is great - thick, chewy and rich and not foamy. Taste is complex - lots of roasted barley and soy sauce, less coffee. Tangy cognac finish. Alcohol well hidden. Definitely a sipper though. It might sound pretentious, but I recommend giving it a little while to breathe to lose some of its sharpness.

Bule (741) - California, USA - MAY 12, 2013
250ml Bottle pours a thick black color with no bubbles or head. The aroma is magnificent with the cognac well noticeable without being overpowering. Flavors of toffee, cognac, roasted malt all coming together to make a great tasting beer.

lamas (1355) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 11, 2013
8.5 oz. bottle courtesy of agl108. Different label than that in the picture. A pitch black pour with a skim of a reddish chestnut head. The RICH aroma features lots of raisins, plums, soy sauce, chocolate cake, roasted coffee, vanilla, caramel, molasses, anise, peat, and a charred woodsiness. Goes down incredibly smooth. One of the thickest, chewiest bodies I can recall. Some fudge and chocolate cake start things off taste-wise. Raisins, plums, licorice, and vanilla in the middle. A charred woodsiness and some peat too. Lots of freshly roasted coffee and dark chocolate at the end. An interesting finish - quite dry with a great deal of salty soy sauce that really intensifies the flavors. Plenty of alcohol warmth throughout, but very little of the booziness usually associated with a beer this big. Another fantastic beer from Mikkeller! Rating #1200.

SrSilliGose (3248) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 11, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2013 tiny bottle produces about 742 danish pours. aroma kicks off with a meaty doughed cocoa then to a tarred, grainy milk dud molasses. turns into a nice smokey dark chocolate as it warms. taste is sweet grainy dark chocolate, deep dark roast leaves a lasting roasty bitterness on the old palate. a touch of burned molasses. bitter dark chocolate roast adds welcomed balance to the sweet syrupy molasses. complex. probably the best mikkeller stout i’ve had. but i guess this was brewed at Nøgne anyway, so not sure who to thank. pretty good in small doses, but in the end was too syrupy sweet. lost desire to finish the 8 oz bottle.

markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle generously shared by someone at RBWG Grand Tasting. Cheers! Pours a deep black with a dark tan head. Nose is roasted malts, some dark chocolate, some black coffee, and a big peatiness that slmost drowns out the wood and vanilla of the barrel. Flavor is similar- there is roast and there is dark chocolate, but the dominating flavors are peat and more peat. Medium to full in body and very big and boozy.

bytemesis (3100) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle - thanks Ben! Pours very inky black with a secondary small black creamy head that dissipates with some lacing. Aroma is brandy, dark roasted malts, chocolate, coffee. Flavor is the same with a touch of liquorice. Barrel notes present but not overpowering. Medium sweet, lightly bitter. Full silky body. Very satisfying. The worst thing about it was that my wive loved it and drank half my pour!

Bottled:
Pitch black with a small, brown head. Huge aroma of toffee, licorice, roasted malt and smoke. Really thick mouthfeel. Flavour is quite sweet and has notes of roasted malt, toffee, licorice, oak and warming alcohol. The bottle was small but the beer was BIG!
