caesar (5323) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2013
Tap @ CBC2013. Dark color, short head. Roasted malts, coffee, chocolat, some strange vegetable or meat broth which probably is the cognac, ashes. Hmm, strange combination, that doesnt seem to fit each other. Bitter taste.

Scopey (7444) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle at home. It pours jet black with a tiny dark tan head. The nose is roasted malt, strong soy sauce, toasted sesame seed, coffee grinds, oily, salted liquorice and chocolate. The taste is rich roasted malt, espresso coffee, toffee, chocolate gateaux, pecan pie, salted liquorice, burnt earth, dark fruit, cognac and warming alcohol with lingering bitterness. Full body, low carbonation and viscous, oily mouth-feel. A rich, indulgent beast of a beer. Tastes delicious, but Iím slightly off-put by the soy sauce notes on the nose. Great stuff nonetheless.

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2013
black with thick brown legs, this beer is really charry, too much smoke and ash on the nose and taste, the beer tastes barrel aged due to the alcohol but you canít differentiate the cognac, ok, but nothing special

Tmoney99 (11094) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2013
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 (1157) - 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. Itís so sweet and thick that it could easily have a higher ABV. Right now the sweetness is a bit unmatched.

TEJA (1376) - 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.
