Draught. Pours pitch black with a lasting creamy tan medium head. Aroma is roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, cocoa, wood, nut, coffee, caramel, dark fruit, smoke, licorice, molasses, vanilla and cognac. Taste is near heavy sweet and medium bitter. Body is full, texture is smooth and thick, carbonation is soft. Finish with roasted malt, chocolate and licorice.

Bottle enjoyed at Micro Bar, Reykjavik
Pours pitch black with a thin brown head that falls down to some wonderful lacings. Smells of coffee, oak, liquorice, some booze and cognac, roasted malts. The whole thing smells quite excuisite. Heavy sweet, dark malts, chocolate and some cognac blended in with hints of liquorice and oak. Medium bitter finish with some fine hops. Another top quality beer from Mikkeller - the George series must be one of the best there is.

Hermod (2805) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2013
25cl bottle. Pitch black, no head. Thick liquid, tar, molasses, black bread, roasted malt in aroma. Perfect. Nicely warming, quite sweet, full bodied. Tar, roasted malt, woody notes and salty licorice. Sweet salty finish, later very dark chocolaty notes. Impressive, nice sipper, alcohol nicely hidden. Not much cognac noticeable, mostly the warmth. Would be great to taste the other barrel aged versions.

Thick & viscous dark, dark brown. Little to no head in wide Trappist glass. Smells.. Chocolate, malt, coffee, roasty stuff and a little cognac . Tastes.. Chocoalte, coffee, malts, dried fruit, and a good dose of cognac barrel. kinda bitter. Amaze.

NordicV (995) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2013
Nästan svart, trögflytande öl med ett mörkbrunt skum som försvinner ganska fört. Doften är choklad, lätta lakritstoner, trä och konjak. Alkohol och choklad är smaker som är gifta med varandra, så även i denna öl.

jesperhammer (2646) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2013
20-MAR-2013, draft @Mikkeller, with Erik. Black with lasting, creamy brown head. Aroma is alcohol, roaste, sweet chocolate. Taste is molases, roast, sweet chocolate, cognac, and alcohol. Very very full body, soft carbonation. Very sweet.. Best of the Georges. This is an amazing beer. Had to buy another glass. WOW. Had it not been for a little weak aroma with a little too much alcohol, this would have been a perfect 5.

StoutHead (483) - DENMARK - MAR 20, 2013
On tap @ Mikkeller and Friends. WOW! This is REALLY good. Pours pitch black with a tiny dark mocca - and surprisingly slightly reddish - head. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, wood and cognac notes. Mouthfeel is super thick and creamy. Long aftertaste of roasted malt, vanilla and cognac. Awesome beer

Tap @ Mikkeller, Viktoriagade. Black with a lasting dark brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, chocolate, wood and cognac. Flavor is very sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. Oily and smooth. Yummy. 160313
