Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, coffee and vanilla wood alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy bittersweet roasted black coffee malt flavor with a heavy bittersweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture, sticky legs and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

thirstyrabbit (1126) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 30, 2013
25 cl bottle. Deep dark body with a minimal light brown head. Aroma has brandy and raisins. Very thick and oily mouthfeel. Velvety taste of dark chocolate, raisins, espresso. Finish has the familiar Mikkeller stout sweetness. Not as complex as I was expecting it to be. It’s so sweet and thick that it could easily have a higher ABV. Right now the sweetness is a bit unmatched.

TEJA (1359) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2013
Sampled at omhper, thanks Per. No head and black color. Dark chocolate aroma with sweet chrystal maltiness. No carbonation but still loaded with taste. Sweet and balanced bitterness. Light alcohole from the cask. Big body.

250 ml bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours oily pitch black with a small creamy and fizzy dark chocolate brown head that is rather quick to dissipate and doesn’t leave and trace worth mentioning. Smell is intense, sweet, malty, boozy and fruity with roasted malts, bitter chocolate, prunes, raisins, figs, cognac, charred wood, alcohol, dark chocolate sponge cake, biscuits, caramel, alcohol and dark roast coffee. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, charred wood, bitter chocolate, soy sauce, alcohol, raisins, prunes, cognac, biscuits, burnt caramel and hints of cherries in brandy. Mouthfeel is smooth, silky, creamy, oily, boozy round and full bodied. finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, bitter chocolate, cognac, chocolate spongecake, alcohol, prunes, brandy, wood and hints of tart cherries. Incredibly intense and very very good. Very much a big treat that blows you away.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 28, 2013
Slightly apprehensive purchase: $15.99 8.5 fl oz bottle. Pours with a inky, deep black and glass coating body, small deep brown head fades to a ring, but legs and lace remain. Aromas are dark fruits, plums, figs, smoke, beef jerky, applewood bacon. Very very vinous, oaky, brandy, vanillin. Main emphasis is on smoked meats, vinous barrel, and alcohol. Cashews, raisins, earth, dark chocolate. Flavors are bready, graham cracker, and exceptionally smokey. Good quality preserved meats and beef jerky. Some vinous barrel, lots of alcohol. Complex yet the decadence and balance is slightly not to my liking. Good body (thick in this case), toasted malts. Lots and lots of smoke. Good chocolate. Good beer, but not mind blowing. Very very viscous. Some strong tannins as it warms. Bitter roast. Constantly changing, new complex flavors. Hoppy, herbal notes, vanillin in various forms. Big bodied, velvety, lightly warming, moderate to low carbonation. Very thick and assertive mouthfeel is nice, flavors are a bit over the place and balanced more to the smoky flavors than I enjoy in beer.

Vestergaard (424) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - APR 22, 2013
I was the friend who stepped by (cf. Motherbrother). Pours sick black, but the thick edge and the fluffy head reveals lots of deep - almost reddish - brown nuances. Smell is heavy roast, gun powder, licorice and something sweet. The taste is initially sweet with cinnamon, vanilla and some of the almost raisinish from the grapes in the cognac. Rapidly taken over by more roast and a slight bitterness. There is so much going on, and compared to george!, george! BA, George! Calvados, this one is not as one sided, which is both good and bad. But all in all: Shit this is good!!

MotherBrother (743) - Aalborg, DENMARK - APR 22, 2013
A good friend of mine stopped by, with a small yet delicious treat. Pour black as death, with a small mocha brown head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, coffee beans, slight wood, slight cognac, licorice, slight roasted malts, slight booze as well. Really is delicious, with a whole lot going on. The taste is slightly sweet up front, with a heavy and long dose of bitterness at the end. Very full bodied, with the perfect amount of semi-flat carbonation. Slight heat in the throat, but very well made. Beer like this, is what it’s all about ;)

stoutnick (583) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2013 Black as buggery. Tan head. Aroma is mild smokiness and roasted malt. Taste is chocolatey, very mild bitterness and roasty smokey flavours. Not a big fan of the rauchiness. Big viscous mouthfeel. Sweetness at end. Nice spirit tang at end as well. Palate is surprisingly not sickly, or ruined. Very easy to drink this big dessert beer. Overall, very tasty and interesting.
