This is one aggressive stout. Thick motor oil pour.. Small soft tan head. Aromas are great. Roasted malts, and oatmeal. Dark chocolate cake batter and some booze. Flavors are intense bittersweet chocolate, burnt malts, hot booze and intense hops. I can appreciate a well crafted beer.. And this is good. Sure wish there was more sweetness to this.

JefVerstraete (2040) - Ghent, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2014
Oily black colour, dark brown foam. Low carbonation. Very complex aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Full body. Very well balanced between sweet and bitter.

BiereLuc (1122) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Noire à la mousse moka qui laisse une jolie dentelle en guise de souvenir. Nez timide de grains torréfiés et de café. En bouche, la bière présente les meilleures saveurs d’un stout impérial, sans fla-fla, avec l’équilibre dans le tapis. J’aurais préféré un plus GROS sucre résiduel, mais n’empêche, voici un autre bon produit de Mikkeller!

tastybeer (1847) - Indiana, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Bottle. Inky black pour, tan head. Little retention/some lace. Aroma of dark chocolate, tobacco, espresso, roast, wood. Taste is quite bitter, super dark chocolate, wood, tobacco, roast. Palate is dry, oily, bitter finish. Reminds me of expedition. Digging this.

This is damn near perfection. If I were to fault this in any way i would say palate wise it just barely warrants a 4. Just ever so barely. Wish there were a tad bit more milky. Other than that best I’ve had in a long time.

BVery (7878) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle from Casanova. Super thick dark black pour with a small beige head. Dense roast and molasses all over this. Quite roasty / bitter with a very dry finish. Big beer.

TheEpeeist (3520) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2014
11.2 oz bottle. Dark brown with brief tan fuzz. Nose is wood, molasses, espresso, tar and hay. Creamy medium body with a tang. Taste is espresso, tobacco, dark chocolate, plum and smoke. Solid but not so memorable.

Lukaduke (2657) - Gray, Maine, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Pours a thick viscous black umber with a finger of dark khaki foam. Lots of deep dark chocolate, roasted char, leather and salty prunes on the nose. The palate follows with nice contrast between deep heavy roasted chocolate, bittersweet, dark fruit, espresso... long lingering finish. Good mouthfeel with a decent carbonation level to lighten it slightly and add a bit of chuggability !
