On tap at the Hoppy Pub , Thessaloniki. Pours deep black with a thick brown head that leaves laces on my snifter. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and alcohol. Taste is bittersweet full of coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice and some hints of dark fruits. Full body with low carbonation and a dry bitter aftertaste. One of the best imperial stouts, in my opinion.... Brew gem !!!

So Mikkeller, so good. This pours so thick and black out of the bottle with a slight and quick vanishing head. Smells like wine, port, oak. Almost feels a bit oily on the tongue. The first taste is of a intense chocolate then coffee roast, raisins. Smooth and tasty all the way down. Hardly any bitter taste.
