250mL thanks to blomster. Complete ink pour, weaker reddish foam. Staining swirl. Nose is typical Mikkeller heavy soy, ash, chocolate covered strawberry, lemon. Eventually light cognac comes into play with browned butter. Fumey, sharp cognac. Taste is denser at first, sugar, ash, soy. Palate is spicy, not super dense, some waxy dark chocolate, thinner, still a lot of metallic soil. Good, not worth the price tag.

What a tough son of a bitch this beer is. But not completely happy with the taste. But still think it was cruel. Worth a try. Very taste and smell with a long finish. Very thick in flavor.

What a fantastic beer!! Copious amounts of chocolate, coffee, molasses and cognac. Very well balanced. Four left at home, will cellar these; think this will improve even more with age.
